Workshops with the Teachers

In some workshops, the Maestros will provide a general study of the Tango. The lessons are divided into several stages, i.e. beginner, intermediate, advance and master, also in some categories such as Tango Pista and Stage (choreography) Tango. Everything is laid out in clear syllabuses.

 

Tango Classes / Private Lessons

In order for all the knowledge gained from the workshops to be firmly absorbed in the minds of the participants, the lessons in the workshops are followed by some Tango Classes. The Private Lessons provide more practical guidelines as to how to dance Tango in a better way. Here the participants will receive many important lessons from well-experienced maestros who will expose the secrets of Tango.

 

Milongas

Milonga is an important part in this event. Every Milonga with their own unique themes are Warming up Milonga, Welcoming Milonga, Traditional Milonga, Gala Milonga, Championship Milonga, and Farewell Milonga. In addition to the different themes and nuances, every Milonga will be held in several different places so that each gives the impression of a wonderful variety for participants.

 

Yoga

The word yoga means "union" in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where yoga originated. We can think of the union occurring between the mind, body and spirit. What is commonly referred to as "yoga" can be more accurately described by the Sanskrit word asana, which refers to the practice of physical postures or poses. Asana is only one of the eight "limbs" of yoga, the majority of which are more concerned with mental and spiritual well-being than physical activity. In the West, however, the words asana and yoga are often used interchangeably.

 

Meditation

An ordinary person may consider meditation as a worship or prayer. But it is not so. Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. "watching your breath" is meditation, listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation. Meditation is not a technique but a way of life. Meditation means 'a cessation of the thought process'. It describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns. The observer (one who is doing meditation) realizes that all the activity of the mind is reduced to one. These days it is commonly understood to mean some form of spiritual practice where one sits down with eyes closed and empties the mind to attain inner peace, relaxation or even an experience of God. Some people use the term as "my gardening is my meditation" or for jogging or art or music, hence creating confusion or misunderstanding.
