MOVE.UNLTD present: MOVEMENT & HEALING: Workshop and Screening with Carolin Hartmann
WORKSHOP: BRAIN OPERATION: Yoga and mental training for people with and without disability (Limited to 15 people).
During this 90 minute workshop, we will enjoy one hour of bodywork with closed eyes and the perfect presence of our mind. By only doing little movement and concentrating on our breath, we slow down our minds and zoom in on our bodies. Forgetting the environment, we become fully aware of our heartbeat. By following the principle of mind over matter, we leave the outer world behind and go on a journey to our peaceful body inside, where everything is possible. At this state of mind, we start to feel the energy moving our bodies. By letting go of any resistance, we surrender our bodies and our inner vibe becomes visible! This session will end with a guided meditation where our mind experiences our resting body from a new perspective!
This workshop will be guided by Carolin Hartmann who, due to her own neurological disorder, is a yoga teacher who emphasizes the neurological aspect of yoga and shares her experiences and knowledge. By changing perspective through deep conscious, we can change our patterns and operate our brain to become free.
Directed by Luis Ortiz. Open to all.
“This movie is a portrait about Carolin Hartmann, a young woman who suffers from a degenerative neurologic illness, or perhaps not? What or who dictates if we are sick or not? And what is the role of the mind and society by such a condition? In this movie, made with the participation of Carolina herself, we observe a chapter of her life. Narrated with passages from her unpublished autobiography, it shows how she uses yoga for her own healing process, and how she finds a new relationship with her own body after fundamentally rethinking her life. Shot in Germany and India, this is a very touching and personal statement about life, love, and movement.”
There will be a Q&A with Carolin and the director after the screening.
Biography Caroline Hartmann:
I am a disabled dancer, yoga teacher, and book author. Because of a chronic nerve disease, I have used a wheelchair for 13 years now. I have always been dreaming that my body will be heard and healed. Instead of investing time and energy in my body to follow my dream, I studied law and became a lawyer.
I got to know yoga and went to an Indian ashram for a few months, where I learned about yoga, meditation, ayurvedic way of life, rituals and its incredible benefits for my mind, nervous system and my whole body, then went back to Germany in 2011. I quit my job and decided to dedicate the rest of my life to my body that was crying for attention. I wrote a book, shared my intense experiences of body and mind I had in India in seminars and workshops, became a certified yoga teacher in 2014, and now teach regular inclusive yoga classes as well as workshops every now and then. I also work as a dancer and performer.
