Payatt INtransit (Rakesh Sukesh)

Payatt INtransit is a contemporary movement technique that combines movement principles from the ancient Indian martial art form of Kalaripayattu with Hatha yoga practices like Asana and Pranayama as well as dynamic kundalini yoga and energy work to stimulate the source of energy in our body. It trains the practitioners in a safe, organic and yet rigorous way to become more confident, soft, relaxed, flexible and powerful, training us to be quick in our reflexes, while at the same time guiding us to cultivate a constant inner calm.
The focus lies on learning to relax and soften while simultaneously unleashing a forceful energy as we use gravity and momentum to build up physicality. The class challenges our physical and mental limits, training the physical body to be quick, energetic, physical, while mentally we remain calm, soft and relaxed, undisturbed by the agitation of physical movement. We learn to isolate the strong physical aspect of this class from the constant calm within, enabling us to gain complete control over the movement rather that the movement controlling us, and enhancing our ability to adapt to unexpected situations and make innovative yet efficient choices, based on combining the energy from within with our physical energy and with the energy around us.

Untamed Method (Ricardo Ambrózio)

A method based in high physicality, mixing elements of flying low, parkour, break dance, martial arts and capoeira aiming to reach maximum efficiency and power independent of different bodies and technical backgrounds.

 

A system based in the use of less muscular effort as possible, relaying in the structure of the skeleton and having the core and punctual impulses as base to optimize the use of momentum in its movements.

 

Untamed method aims to unleash the unknown power that our body and mind releases in situations of extreme stress, danger and/or pleasure. Fed by basic natural ways of movement (like animal styles of movement and natural reflexes and actions), it awakes our primitive instincts, and capacity of reaction.

Improvisation and Partnering (Gonçalo Lobato)

We will explore readiness to catch oneself and to deal with incoming weight. Learning constantly to be aware of what we need to do to take care of ourselves, to not get distracted by thoughts, or what our partner “should do”.

Aiming to keep functional track of what is happening so we can react ,always available and ready to support incoming weight.
This is accomplished through a sense of always bridging between partner and the floor, ready to catch ,while sensing and interacting with our partner’s weight and structure.
