YANA SUTINA (RUSSIA)
Freediver, teacher of CI in water, contact dancer, mermaid 🙂
I met CI in 2007 and realized that this is what I was looking for… For me this is a practice that inspires, widens my borders and makes me completely happy. Now my interest is how to maintain curiosity of a child in a dance, to make the dance alive and present here and now.
I like the idea that dance is meditation with different focuses of attention, which initiate movement, and by guiding my attention I can create a unique and amazing dance.
I always admired CI for its openness to other practices. Apart from CI I practice social dances, Thai massage and yoga. I am drawn to water and this is why I do freediving and watsu. And dance in water combines all my interests.
