Whirling Workshop

Whirling Workshop with Mark Wagner & Kat Hanula

Saturday 15:00 – 16:15 | BODY | £10

Join us for the Whirling Dervish Dance workshop.

Whirling is a century old Mystical tradition / meditation / ritual / dance founded by Mevlana – Rumi and practiced by the Sufis. By spinning around one’s axis, one reaches states of ecstatic bliss, euphoria, communion, connection, meditation, healing, trance and…. Love. 

You will be invited to discover this illuminating and dizzying practice at your own pace and with no expectations in a safe space under the guidance of Kat and Mark.

Mak Wagner trained as a Mevlevi Dervish and Whirled in traditional ceremonies before learning spinning with choreographer Ziya Azazi and then developing his own creative Whirling.

Kat Hanula is a chi gong instructor and self taught spinner. She has created her own unique style of 

Whirling in line with her artistic sensibility.

The workshop will feature a short introductory talk followed by a gentle warm up and Whirling session.

Everyone is welcome regardless of experience. Participants are encouraged to spin in their own style and to their own comfort and ability. Whirling skirts will be provided for all to try.
