Peak Performance Through Movement - The Life Adventure

Peak Performance Through Movement

Peak Performance Through Movement

With Jorge Crecis
Increase personal impact, reduce stress, have more fun
Why this is something you should try

Our body is the most immediate tool we have. Working on our bodies not only enables us to become more efficient, but surprisingly, it also teaches us how to have more fun on a daily basis. This, in turn, increases our personal impact on those around us. In this workshop, which ideally runs for 4 hours, but we can reduce down to 2 or 3 hours if time is short, we’ll share simple, powerful and widely proven routines taken from years of working with top-performing artists, to tap into an ideal peak performative state of mind, at will.

• Less judgment + full commitment = your full potential is released
• Habits disappear in order to leave space for efficacy and immediacy
• Games are very serious things. Games push us to do our best and have fun at the same time

What you’ll be doing

Have you ever wondered why dancers and rock stars possess a special charisma? That special something that attracts everyone’s attention? How they perform at their peak every night? And why they have an amazing presence and vitality?

For many years Jorge has worked with dance personalities such as Carlos Acosta and music legend Paul McCartney, amongst others. Now, for the first time, we’re sharing the secret of their vitality to other professionals, who’s careers demand a high level of physical and mental performance.

This workshop combines the energy of high-performing movement with the creativity of performing arts. By capturing the spontaneity and the immense concentration of being in the moment, you’ll be pushed into an enhanced presence of mind.
