To teach well is to question thoroughly
Yesterday, a lovely and inspiring woman, Sasha Cagen, from the San Francisco area wrote us, inquiring about our ways of teaching tango movement after having attended TangoBreath when she visited Asheville this summer. Eric and I were perplexed at first about how to respond. Explaining how to teach is a giant step from actually teaching. There are so many subtle ways in which our teaching, and learning, has evolved in TangoBreath, from a word we might use to a way in which we physically adjust people. And there is so much, still, for us to learn.
We decided to link our practice of tango movement with breath, to create intention
We know that what we do is different, a bit unconventional. When asked, “What is TangoBreath”, we explain a bit, and sometimes we get,”Cool! Yoga and tango!” other times we get “That sounds like a lot of work, I just want to learn some steps” or “I can practice that on my own”. There are a number of perspectives to take when looking at what we do. I thought it might be nice to give you our point of view.
This talk is about relationships and life, everything in it also applies to tango
As my first post I would like to share a video, it is one of my favorites, and this is not even a tango video. It’s a TED talk. A TED talk about relationships by Hedy Schleifer, ‘The Power of Connection’.
