Painting/ Breathing in Sicily, October 16 to 21, 2018
With Gianni Girotto and Michael Eldridge
Held at the magnificent Masseria Bannata in the middle of Sicily, this unusual workshop addresses the liberating aspect of right breathing in our lives which gives us an energetic freedom and a powerful desire to create beyond ourselves
What we will do and why
The first part of each day will be led by Gianni Girotto, authorized instructor of the Buteyko Breath Method and director of ilBuonRespiro.it.
It will be dedicated to the theoretical learning and practical application of the principles of the Buteyko Breathing Method, and how this is effective in improving the oxygen capacity of our body in all the cells of our body.
Practical, easy and immediately applicable advice will be given to make the respiratory activity more efficient, for a correct posture, for the reactivation of the nasal breathing, for the correct use of the respiratory diaphragmatic muscle and for the improvement of the quality of nocturnal rest.
Thanks to the increase of cerebral oxygen intake, it has positive effects on the the functionality and balance of the mind.
It induces greater calm and lucidity by improving the skills of attention and learning and increases the effectiveness of meditative practices.
Thanks to these effects, it stimulates curiousity, and the expression of creative intuition innate in each of us.
It is this aspect which we will experience in the second part of each day when we will be guided by professor Michael Eldridge in a path of rediscovery of our creative ability, and will have the opportunity to express ourselves freely and creatively by painting
Michael is a painter and photographer, the director of Starstone Creativity and former professor at Arts University Bournemouth and professor of painting at Siena Art Institute.
