10:30-11:30am: Organic movement with Dima Apelbaum
About Dima Apelbaum:
Dima is passionate about movement, and has been exploring and experimenting with various different disciplines since he was a teenager. His journey led him from weightlifting to yoga, boxing, aikido, ultra long distance running, and then finally to generalist philosophies like that of Ido Portal. He finds inspiration in the way generalist movement training feels like you can do almost anything – from handstands to flowing, dance-style movements, to animal locomotion, to juggling.
Focus and be present in the moment. And because it's outdoor yoga it's about finding your focus despite the distractions around us.
