What: Whether you are interested in the physical benefits of whirling or the mysticism associated with it this workshop is for you! We will have some theory, history and science of what 'rotating' on an axis is believed to to for our bodies.
It is believed and practiced in many cultures, from the famous poet Rumi and Whirling Dervishes, to Tibetan Monks to different Wiccan/Pagan sects that Whirling or turning can bring the body in to harmonious balance with our swirling universe. We are able to find a moment of stillness in the chaos, a similar effect to meditation. It is studied that practitioners experience good balance, healing and a spiritual Oneness.
Come Try for yourself. You do not require a skirt but it will enhance your experience. Any Circle Skirt can do. For those interested we can have a solid colour circle skirt made for you in advance for an extra fee of $80 or Weighted Sufi Skirt for $300 (takes 4-6 weeks to order)
