October 25th: Dance Friday Hosts Biodanza with Carolina Churba

Carolina Churba-Doyle is among the leading world figures in Biodanza and has over thirty years’ experience in Biodanza. Her training and students are recognised as being among the best currently emerging from Biodanza training worldwide. She has trained over 80 facilitators in South Africa.

In 1990, she brought Biodanza from its origins in South America to London, where the establishment of the programme was successfully completed in 1995. From England, Biodanza has since moved into numerous countries throughout Europe and into Japan.

In 1996, Carolina brought Biodanza to South Africa and in 2005, she was recognised by Rolando Toro Araneda and the world governing body of Biodanza, the International Biocentric Foundation, as the official licence holder and custodian of Biodanza in Southern Africa.

“I started Biodanza at 18 in Argentina. Biodanza has helped me live my life in balance. Every class I have a chance to process my week. And I find my inner source of love that allows life to flow from week to week in a positive way. That is why I have continued with it for over thirty years!”

” I see people heal their lives through Biodanza from their very core. This gives me purpose in my facilitation.”

Carolina currently works as an International Consultant giving support to Facilitators all over the world.

Stan and Helena invite you to join them in
Tuning Moving Meditations

In a perpetual dance, your energy flows within and around your body responding to your moves, emotions, and thoughts. Like a musical instrument, you can consciously choose what you are Tuning in, to develop your well-being. Starting with a Tai Chi style warm-up, you will be invited to practice positive affirmations with gentle moving meditations. Tuning more of who you are, dance fully present in your body!

Followed by Live Music for Dancing by Stan Strickland.
