  Workshops & Facilitators

The Fire Wolf Mariano Santiago 

BIO: Mariano “The FireWolf'' is a dreamer. Raised in a business minded family, started his artistic career in Argentina, entertaining people in parties and festivals, working for an artistic company called Danza Napeli, while managing his family business back in 2013. He developed a passion for Latin rhythms, which took him on a journey to follow the crazy dream of dancing in Cali, Colombia the “capital of salsa”, leaving his family business and everything behind. Two years of hard work resulted in a 2nd place on Salsa Cabaret (acrobatic) in the World Salsa Championship 2015 with the company “Stilo y Sabor'' and being a main dancer of the Cali Salsa festival, a cultural parade of over 1200 dancers, musicians and over 200.000 spectators from all over the world. His journey continued with performances and training back in South America, where Bachata Sensual got his attention, moving then to Europe for further training in 2017 with his dancing partner. He discovered acro yoga in a festival in Spain, and has been training since then through his travels around the world. Mariano spent 7 months living in India, got his RYT 200 In Hatha/Ashtanga Yoga in Rishikesh, and lived with a Tibetan Buddhist community up in the Himalayas, studying meditation and Buddhist practices. Arriving in Australia in January 2020, he started performing with Fire, acro and dancing all together and this has been his life ever since.

His vision is to explore the capabilities of creation that we have as human beings, connecting to a universal source of inspiration, moment to moment, igniting the fire within, where everything is possible.

WORKSHOP: Conscious hand balance, Latin rhythms & Acroyoga 

 

Wacha Wings Julieta Mastrapasqua

BIO: I am Julieta (80% Argentinean and 20% Italian) My roots are Latin-American so that is the language that my body and soul speaks. I am a world trotter who has been travelling for the last 10 years through the five continents.

I have been practising Aerial Acrobatics for 14 years and Latin style Dance since I was born, 31 years ago. 

Some time ago I felt a clear necessity to combine these two beautiful disciplines in my professional project as both represent me fully. Latin style Aerial Dance is the closest definition of the art I want to share with the community. 

When performing I embrace the wilderness and sovereignty innate to all women as a reclamation of the feminine wisdom that we should have never been abandoned.

Moving my body is the sincerest way I find to express my most intimate emotions.  I hope to share the joy I experience when floating on the floor.

 

WORKSHOP: Aerial acro session & Latin Rhythms

When teaching Aerial Acrobatics and Latin style Dance I find great satisfaction as well as it keeps our bodies active while having fun and developing our creative side. Furthermore, the classes have the aim to strengthen the student's self-confidence by opening our physical boundaries to new experiences which can mean a deep and empowering therapy. It is a discipline that can be taught from multiple approaches, so it suits any age and sportive background.

Manuel Alonso

BIO: Hi there, I'm Manü. I see myself as an explorer, adventurer, traveller by soul and lover of connecting from the similarities within the contrasts.

Born and raised in Argentina, I first studied business there while working in the family one until I decided to go for my personal path. Studied Physical Education which opened a new world of perspectives, priorities and brought a new realm of empathy into my life. During that time, I began taking dance lessons and practicing yoga which led me to reconnecting with my true self.

Working experience ranged from schools, clubs, social assistance centres, aged care centres, yoga teaching and the fitness world to hospitality, peddling, street performing, construction, farming or anything to keep me on the road. 

I came to Australia 3 years ago where I was lucky enough to start getting back into the movement world. First in the east coast in Noosa Heads and now in the lower South West, been facilitating yoga, massage therapies, mobility conditioning, guided meditations and the movement lab.

Sharing experiences, learning, playing, and connecting in the simple things feels like a vitality injection which brought me back into my passion. 

After years of working with education, fitness, and mobility, I wanted to try something different. So, I got myself into circus, animal flow, neurobics, meditation techniques and breathwork, which led me to a back to basics movement approach. All this motivated me to "launch my own program" and now I'm thrilled to be sharing it around.


WORKSHOP: Movement LAB

The movement lab started as an invitation to explore the different planes of motion, the deconstruction of "socially awkward or unacceptable patterns", being comfortable in the discomfort and the expression of emotions through movement and play.

The idea is to bring back joy and reconnect with our feelings through games, improvisation, rhythm, creating and sharing with others.

There is no right and wrong, up and down, big and small or winners and losers here. There is only surrender and the true outcome of our inner selves.

The idea of the lab is for you to discover, find, create your own formula, explore it and share it for further expansion.

My main motivation is horizontalizing human beings as I feel it is within our differences that we shall unite.

It is a pleasure and honour to be part of this awakening journey.

Hope to see you there!

Soar your soul!

Laura Briones
