– workshop using breathing techniques and Buddhist meditations –
Would you like to be fully in the present ‘the Indian way’? Are you curious to learn ancient techniques for your improv?
The Buddha said that you could attain enlightenment just by paying attention to your breath. You might be skeptical (I sometimes still am too!), but I discovered that the breath influences everything on the improv stage.
I will offer active exercises and fun improv scenes, for you to discover how you can greatly improve what happens in your mind and your body by just… Breathing. A simple and powerful tool you always have at your disposal.
– Balasree also teaches another workshop –
In the morning, Bala will be teaching another workshop, only for women: The Calm Badass Improviser. You can find all the information there, and also book your tickets for a full day just below!
Bala is an improviser from Bangalore, India. She got her first taste of improv when she was in the US for grad school. When she returned to India, she began improvising and teaching with Improv Comedy Bangalore, one of India’s few improv companies. She is a co-founder of The Adamant Eves, India’s first and only all-women improv team. Her personal philosophy is that as an improviser (or even as a human being), all you need is creativity applied with awareness. She loves teaching using a mix of themes like music, movement, philosophy, and a mix of eastern spiritual traditions – all tools that help her show up as her best self, on and off-stage.
