I’ve been lucky to participate in two workshops given by Mihaela during which I connected to my inner self and to the pure happiness of dance. I gained a higher awareness of my body and improved the way I express myself through it. I achieved a higher level of consciousness and surpassed my comfort zone.
In a relatively short time I experienced a large amount of information, sensation and reflection applicable to both dance and life. I would even say a new way of thinking, a new understanding of the body. All of it presented in a quiet and gentle way.
I recommend this workshop to any dancer who sees them self as a curious explorer of the internal sense of movement and space. What I liked about this workshop is that it worked on more than one level. I learned that effort equals pleasure. I discovered a different starting point to inspire my dance, an inner sense of movement.
