Czech Republic

Have a look what could the festival bring to you.

Do you want to be happy and fulfill your potential?

Do you wish to experience pure joy, satisfaction and happiness?

Is your desire to connect more with yourself, with others and with your life as such?

If you still can not achieve to live the life in which you feel happy, joyful and fulfilled, you may think, plan, and do, but perceive and feel not enough. You will not achieve a beautiful life only with your mind. 

Experience a real connection with yourself, with others, with your life, and your world will change.

Satisfaction is based on our connection. The first step is really to feel this connection. To perceive yourself and the life as it is. The second step is to do what you actually feel. In short, organize your life as you really want it.

Now you have an opportunity to really feel this connection!

Thanks to the Biodanza Festival you can also experience feelings of harmony, relaxation, love, joy, solidarity and satisfaction!

OUR VISION OF THE FESTIVAL

Biodanza festival is an opportunity to re-connect with ourselves, each other and Life as such.

From this space of true solidarity and connection on all three levels we will be nourished, inspired and energized for our personal journey.

It is a a place of little and bigger miracles happening inside and outside. There are possibilities opening up for new perception of ourselves, our relationships, our life. 

Biodanza festival is a place, where we can meet old and new friends.

We can dance, have fun, live out our beauty, rest and enjoy life. We can simply and truly be together

Biodanza festival is a space for inspiration. It positively influences and heals our beautiful czech land.

Biodanza festival connects, harmonizes and brings more understanding, love and joy to our day-to-day reality.

What did the participants of the last year say about the festival?

Biodanza fills me with love and joy, connects me with amazing people and with myself. I love dancing and thanks to Biodanza, I’ve learned to enjoy everything that life brings to me.

Jitka

Biodanza helps me to connect with my inner self – it helps me to find and ruin the walls that I have built up in my whole life. Definitely try the festival and come. You’ll take away at least one inspirational experience, but I’m sure there will be more.
 

Jana

Biodanza represents for me the finest and most pleasant way to meet with the true myself, with its bright and unspoiled places and the real world of people around. It is a miracle how much intimacy and love is among people and how easily it can actually be shared.

Klára

Reach the opportunity to be yourself and to feel the sense of absolute freedom while living out wonderful days with equally tuned people.

Katarínka

It’s a unique experience! It is not possible to describe the uniqueness of Biodanza and its benefits for everyone separately. You just have to try it!

Marie Tilšarová (concert o Thursday evening) 

Marie Tilšarová is an inspirer, mindfulness guide, author of mindfulness motivation cards and above all an AUTHENTIC SONG WRITER. What lives sings, what sings lives.

aHer first album PUSH IT THROUGH THE WATER, released in May 2021, has a beautiful acclaim. The songs on it help listeners find peace and joy in life. Although the genre is between folk and pop, people call them therapeutic. The second album HOME, released in June 2022, boasts similar accolades.

Her songs draw you in because they are from life, touching on places and themes, that we all share… they’re very human, kind, wise. profound and sometimes quite funny…

It is accompanied by the band „A WHO ARE WE“ composed of Basa/DrumKit – Pavel Tilšar, Flutes/Saxophones – Martin Penič.

Together they form one (and often too much:-) living organism that will impress you the joy of being in the present moment.

TRANZAN (concert on Saturday night) 

Powerful conscious messages, singing shared with the audience, wild dance rhythms, meditative stillness are the springs that come together in a single river of love and gratitude. The songs that flow through Tranzan are a pure celebration of being. Thus, they are not absent at births, weddings, deaths, ceremonies dedicated to the elements, the seasons or the celebration of this very moment. Immerse yourself in this flow and let yourself be carried away. Everything that happens on this journey is okay.

Stanislava Ketmanová – masseuse

„I have been accompanying women and men with my touch to return to their inwardness, to their nature and spontaneity. During the massage, we dissolve all the tensions and let you blossom the seed of beauty and sensuality into the beautiful flower of bliss. It will be my honor for me to accompany you on your way ….. „

Miroslav Ketman – masseur

„I realize and perceive that there is so little touching and especially tender touching in our everyday life. And yet our bodies subconsciously crave for this. But because we can accept the touches only in a state of complete relaxation and surrender, my intention is to bring you into this state. And then it can energize you together, I can give you a feeling of surrender, a feeling of joy and love for yourself. And I’m absolutely happy to see you leaving my massages glowing and filled with exactly what you need or what you have not gotten before. I look forward to meeting with each of you, if not for a massage so at least in the amazing space of the festival.“

This therapy is inspired by developmental kinesiology and aims to restore more favorable movement patterns from early childhood. It focuses on conscious movement and activation of the body’s support system for proper alignment. It helps improve or alleviate various health issues such as flat feet, bunions, heel spurs, scoliosis, lordosis, kyphosis, back and joint pain, and more. However, it is also suitable for experienced yogis who seek effortless asanas or those looking for pain-free movement or compensation for unilateral activities. Practicing this therapy leads to overall improvement in the body’s mobility, joy in movement, and a transformation of one’s life perspective 🙂

You can find a list of options at www.biodanza.cz or www.biodanzapraha.cz

Do I need to know how to dance?

No! 😉

Biodanza is suitable for men and women of all ages. It is not necessary to know how to dance or be physically fit, we do not teach any steps or dance choreography. The philosophy of Biodanza is to bring more fun, pleasure, spontaneity, happiness and love into our lives. And we do this simply by moving – the body tells itself where and how intensely it wants to move.

What is Biodanza?

Biodanza is a holistic system of development. Its methodology is based on intense experiences of the presence that come through music, movement and group encounters. It originated in the 1960s in South America and spread throughout the world. It was founded by Professor Rolando Toro. In translation it means Dance of Life. Our human potential has 5 basic so-called development lines – vitality, creativity, sexuality, feeling and transcendence. At Biodanza lessons, we develop and stimulate these areas, leading to the overall flowering of our personality, the affectivity of fulfillment, satisfaction, joy and love. 

Simply put – Biodanza is an adventure that draws you into the Life!

What do participants say on the Biodanza system?

„Biodanza brought me more love to myself and to others, and showed me the possibilities how to show  love to myself and to others. I’ve had wonderful and intense moments with my partner.

Hanka

„I feel a lot more perspective and depth. I can better stand up for myself, allow myself space and time when I need it, not to force myself into anything, and at the same time I  allow myself more contact with people and better manage the contact. I allow myself to enjoy more pleasure and to feel my life with passion. „

Ivana

„BIODANZA has a power to wake up a very exhausted person, pouring the energy into his veins. I felt miserable, and was looking for a reboot. At Biodanza, I have found my strength again, I learned to feel myself. I’m so glad that I discovered Biodanza, it was a great experience for me! „

Tomáš

„Playfulness, joy, Biodanza helped me get out of my head and shake off my worries, I experienced the relaxation and closeness to people – I realized a lot about myself – my restraints, desires, my worries. „
