Marco Di Giano teaches Sri Tango, a workshop that incorporates yoga, reflection and tango. The result is a fun-filled, relaxing task for the entire family members. Individuals are passionate about the Sri Yoga Tango workshop, where they can effortlessly find out the prominent tango social dancing in a pleasant setting. In addition to dancing tango, individuals obtain an introduction to the benefits of yoga as well as reflection, which assist to enhance communication abilities, and also could eliminate the stresses of everyday life.

Q. Please tell us about Sri Tango.

Marco: In the Sri Tango class, we develop a household ambience for all.The family comes and takes pleasure in and also shares with all individuals. It is quite good as well as sweet. For those that wish to learn tango, it is an extremely wonderful means to begin. Currently you could come for the tango as well as you discover The Art of Living world.

Q. Just how did your experience motivate you to produce the Sri Tango workshop?

Marco: In The Fine art of Living International Center, I took the Natya yoga exercise workshop which educates devotional dancing with reflection. I started thinking concerning tango, dancing and meditation and knowledge. And also someday, I started discussing it with Krishanji, my Sri Yoga educator. He inspired me as well as supported my excitement. He claimed, “Yes, you could do it.” We began to organize tango dance lessons on Sunday evenings in the Art of Living Center in México City. People began coming. and coming, 20 to 40 people were there on a regular basis, then the TV and papers. We realized we might really begin this.

Q. Just what is your personal relationship with yoga exercise?

Marco: It is not only the asanas (bodily poses). I associate yoga exercise with a way of life, just how you can be a lot more balanced, much more happy, and live with even more interest. It is not only just how to exercise the asanas, but to know ways to be a lot more competent to unwind, as well as deal with the situation, to improve the way we regard reality.

Yoga helps me to place all this understanding in practice. When I am a lot more calm and centered, I am much better, I could view much better, note and also reveal myself better. As an example, we deal with communication skills in Sri Tango. Something takes place when you are dancing. You share with words as well as the body. The body shares 90 percent, just 10 percent we state with words. When we are in the yoga state, we are with each other. Our nonverbal and our spoken expression are in the exact same direction as well as our interaction then ends up being even more clear as well as reliable. For instance, imagine if you state, “Oh I am quite pleased,” while your hands are shaking and your voice is weak, your nonverbal expression says the reality.

Q. What do you think of the mix of yoga exercise as well as dancing together?

Marco: They are complementary. Yoga gives us old knowledge to be more healthy and balanced to enhance our skills, and also to have even more understanding concerning our practices so we can make ourselves a lot better. We mix these together since tango is lovely. When we live the tango this way, it is more light, more easily accessible. Integrating yoga exercise and also dance, we can be much more open for every person. The whole family is invited to develop this good environment.

Q. So how does it all work?

Marco: It is a very easy way for individuals to collaborate. People come for the tango, and also they also enjoy learning the yoga exercise and breathing exercises. Individuals are enjoying it. It is various. It is fresh.

We do a Sri Tango program for three days. We dance, play video games, it relies on the people. Throughout the last 3 days, we instruct 3 to four points that are extremely important. First is the sense of belongingness. We share concerning the importance of solution in our lives. The relevance of love, and taking responsibility in life. We additionally do some exercise. We benefit the feeling of the existing moment. This is essential in the dancing as well as in life. At the end the tango is not extremely vital in this context of individual growth.

Q. What do people state regarding the class?

Marco: We get a great reaction. They claim, “Oh, I could not believe just how can I really feel such remainder, like rest, in 20 mins!,” and individuals after meditation, they are smiling. When they are asked, “What happened?,” they say, “I do not recognize! I really feel excellent.”

Q. Do you have an once a week follow-up session to exercise the tango dance, like a satsang?

Marco: Yes, it is remarkable. We do in Switzerland as well as In Argentina additionally, Maximiliano Christiani developed a choreographed dance for this team of individuals that had actually never ever danced expertly before. There were so many of them, maybe fifty percent of individuals who took the course with me in Argentina executed. It was incredible. They danced in front of hundreds of individuals (at the Globe Society Festival) in Berlin.

In December we will have the initial Sri Tango Educator Educating Program in Buenos Aires. We are preparing to broaden this program across the globe. As Sri Ravi Shankar says, ‘Widen your vision, grow your roots.’

Q. Can you discuss any makeovers you’ve discovered in individuals?

Marco: When individuals come, one rests there as well as an additional sits there. As soon as the program has happened, there is a large caress. … they state to the others, “You come to my residence as well as have dinner!” In three days, we develop a new little family!
