Her background of experiences and interests mainly interconnects intensive training in contemporary dance, contact improvisation, instant composition, with her later studies into yoga (mainly anusara and vinyasa), postural gymnastic and somatics. The first encounter with Bruno Caverna happened in 2014, first through Liquid Body, later through Play-Fight. Ester works for Formless Arts as Play-Fight facilitator while she is particularly deepening her research in the line between Play-Fight & Contact Improvisation. At the moment she is also integrating her important experience in the Yoga panorama within Formless Arts activities, connecting the approach from the very essence of Formless Arts philosophy.
Through Yoga Ester wishes to cultivate tools for the individual healthy practice, flowing between asanas with deep awareness and careful listening. Yoga principles of alignment and activation of the joints and of the whole body structure find a great integration with the principle of non-resistance and the falling research present at the core of Play-Fight and Liquid Body; by becoming aware of our inner resistances, both in the body and in the mind, we can flow more freely and at the same time build strength, grounding, a whole-body-being integrity fundamental for sustaining everyday life with resiliency and self-care. While in Play-Fight the relationship with the partner is a key element to dig deeper into one-self, in the solo practice through Yoga & Somatics we can work within ourselves, within and through our limits and personal resources, an opportunity to craft endlessly our perception and awareness so to be able to bring more honesty and presence when we enter in a relationship with the other.
