Are you looking to create more grace, fluidity and strength in your body?
Would you like your practice to fulfill you with authentic movement from the inside out?
My name is Tatiana and I’m the creator of the movement mash-up called YogAdagio.
YogAdagio is a blending of yoga and dance techniques that features slow, flowing movements. Elements include Vinyasa yoga, classical and modern dance, and lyrical jazz.
The word yoga in Sanskrit means union. It is a variety of practices in which one joins with the true self by stripping away identification with anything that isn’t. The word adagio is Italian in origin and means slowly (literally “at ease”) and is used in western classical music and dance to indicate pieces that are to be played or danced slowly. In YogAdagio, through slow, focused movement and repetition of forms, eventually anything that blocks you from coming into alignment with your natural state of grace will be dissolved.
The focus of YogAdagio is on strength, balance, grace, and fluidity. By focusing on seamless and soulful transitions, we flow through different body positions and through this flow, the whole sequence, the whole class, becomes our dance.
The class is designed with sequences that are repeated — similar to martial art forms, or dance choreography — so that once you know the sequence, you can focus on refining the quality of your movements without wondering about what comes next.
Sequences include standing and floor work, usually moving from one to the other. As we practice the work organically changes and grows. Some sequences will shift, others will pass away to make space for the new.
All of life is a dance, and in YogAdagio we reflect this truth and learn to flow through transition with ease and grace and strength.
The practice that I’ve created is the class I would love to take if anyone else was offering it. It’s based on a life-long passion of movement arts, combines some of my all-time fave moves and I’m excited to share it with you. I hope to see you in class.
And in the words of jazz legend, Luigi, never stop moving!
