What is The Liquify Series?

The Liquify Series invites you to embody an amalgam of formless art practices. We brew together various water modalities, somatics, and play: authentic movement meets breathwork and weightless contact improvisation meets meditation. Stell Bahrami and João Paulo Pereira invite you for a whimsical afternoon of physical receptivity as you float and dive in a warm water womb-like space.

A Sensuous Liquid Journey

This is a progressive series diving deeper into embodiment, inner work, and connection, so even though each workshop can be attended separately, we highly recommend that you join us for all three if you can!

The Liquify Series is here to share

Vulnerability: via consent culture education, attunement to boundaries and consent, and self-responsibility, we aim for a space of co-created safety welcoming all bodies, shapes, skin colors, ages, creeds, abilities and skill levels.

Presence: our focus is on attunement, awareness, honesty and depth. We are here to meet any shadow and discomfort that may arise with love.

Authenticity: giving yourself the space to embody your most authentic expression of our movement and emotions. To soften into a space of platonic intimacy with others as it feels right for you.

What to expect

  • A sprouting community of humans who love water and embodiment, connection and play, attunement and vulnerability.

  • Three afternoons of fun, relaxation, and depth in the water, one per month each with a different theme. As the workshops and community builds upon one another, we recommend joining for all three, although you are also welcome to join for 1 or 2 as well.

  • A balanced blend of sharing/skill-building and a formless and expressive dance space

João Paulo Pereira 

Founder of BASA Yoga

Water greetings, merfolk. My name is João and sharing my passion for aquatic dance and therapy is my favorite thing to do these days!

I’ve always loved to be by and in the water, as well as all-things movement. I have been a student of somatic and spiritual practices since my late teenage years in Brazil, and facilitated movement, breathwork, meditation, and healing for over 20 years now. And I feel so very humbled and blessed to have deeply embodied the medicines of dance and water, where softness, presence, freedom, and play get to enchant and alchemize our beings.

 

If you feel this calling, maybe you too belong to us merfolk! Then come listen to what the water wants to whisper in your heart…
