The healing container that Brietta creates is what makes her trainings and retreats so special. In the teacher training, not only did I feel like I was learning about how to teach WildCore movement, I learned so much about how to facilitate a group of women healing together. Brietta's use of ritual and other tools she has learned over the years is seamless and seems effortless on her part. You cannot help but be transformed in her presence. I started this training as a student and left a teacher and a leader.
Brietta encourages each teacher to find their unique voice and gifts, and to incorporate WildCore into those, rather than trying to fit some mold she has created. This is one of the things that sets WildCore and Brietta's training apart. I feel supported by the foundation and structure she provides, and free to be myself at the same time.
Brietta has been so much more than a dance teacher to me; she has been a healer, a mentor and a guide for my soul's deepest work. Her gentle encouragement into the wisdom of the body is deeply transformative.
Brietta is an inspiring teacher. She is a natural healer and communicator, and a dancing goddess. She allows each person in class to become more comfortable with their body and their spirit, and growth, strength, flexibility, and balance are enhanced. Brietta’s kind and positive spirit embrace each one of us.
During Teacher Training, as well as all that led up to it, Creative Empowerment, Winter Mentorship, and zoom morning classes, I felt space to show up as I am and to learn from the varied offerings at my own pace. The movement work and play was always deep, gorgeous and wild, a landscape I could immerse in while simultaneously witnessing.
Becoming a WildCore Teacher means that you have tapped your inner wellspring of inspiration, you have a passion for somatic education and are developing the skill to create and teach your own routines.
Each student will teach at least one class to the general public during this training in addition to learning the foundations within the 4 main Roots of WildCore.
The four main Roots of WildCore™ are:
Choreography, Conscious Dance, Breath-work & Belonging.
Below is a short description of what you will learn within each of the roots that make the foundation of WildCore.
My desire as your teacher is to highlight your inner choreographer, emphasizing the style of music, movements and play that align with who you are in the moment.
We will practice a routine each day and have choreography breakdowns so we can better understand:
*Ballet, Jazz, African, Bellydance, Yoga Techniques & Blends
The education and skills offered will create the foundation needed to create your own WildCore routines rooted in confidence, somatic intelligence, grace, alignment & joy.
Included in this root are the Pranic Wheels or Witness Wheels that are woven into each WildCore class. Here we activate our ability to self heal through pranic sweeping and sensing the support of the group as we witness ourselves being seen and learn to hold space for others.
Conscious Dance Techniques you will learn:
*Keeping the thread(focus) alive during freedance
*Cueing techniques and timing
*Styles of music that invoke emotional body & moods to express
*Creating Open Invitations
*Reading the Room
*Education on Pranic healing & chakra qualities
*Developing your somatic language
The breath can support the dance and the dance can support the breath. Building awareness of our breath as we move can literally transform our dance experience from one level to another. The entire 5 day experience will have breath awareness woven through as we move, as we invoke class, as we close. The breath can connect us to the 4 elements and enhance our life experience. Here are some specific techniques I will be teaching.
*Breath-work for opening your energetic channel.
*787 as a way to relax the nervous system and take ourselves out of fight or flight.
*Alternate Nostril Breathing
Our society lives with the illusion that we are all separate, yet in fact we are all so very connected. As teachers we will each navigate the sense of belonging differently. Love is the root that weaves us all together, as teachers we must soften our hearts, release judgements and be willing to be wrong.
This would be a great evening discussion over dessert. I plan to offer:
*Techniques to begin & end class in community
*Ways to playfully get all students engaged
