Born out of Raphan's wish for a collective yet truly individual artistic expression of Vinyasa Yoga, SPACE & FLOW is a movement practice promoting kinaesthetic awareness and 'learning through the body' as the greatest agents for positive personal and social change.
SPACE & FLOW
S&F is a movement-based Yoga practice promoting a healthy spine and joints, muscular strength and body-mind awareness.
The physical practice is based on spinal and joint integrity, muscular strength and the understanding of the role of the nervous system in growth, physical potential and ultimately health.
Greatly inspired by schools of somatic education such as Feldenkrais, the Space & Flow method combines a multi-faceted approach that draws from various fields of practice like martial arts and dance, and from the world of strength & conditioning and that of body therapy.
The growth and ongoing development of S&F is marked by a diversity of sources and this mobility is another important aspect of its essence.
Space & Flow benefits from a close relationship to Sufism, and to Tantra and Zen Buddhism.
Education seems to be primarily a process of transferring information to the intellect, but what if we were to ask, 'what would an education of the body look and feel like?'
