The hANDling Program at School of Reparar offers an annual circuit of workshops for the continued attendance of the Modus Operandi AND with Fernanda Eugenio and other embodied tools of the AND Collective, proposing a meeting plan for the sharing and regular practice of our grassroots tools.


In the second half of 2023, the program will take place entirely at AND Lab Space and will feature an introduction workshop to MO_AND with Fernanda Eugenio and a series of 3 workshops (one per month) on the Ancorar practice, with Flora Mariah, part of AND Collective.





ANCORAR: anchoring practices for navigating bodies.

A research project on body and movement, created by Flora Mariah, that shares tools and facilitates practices that lead to a more anchored, pleasurable and self-sustaining experience of one's own body.

The tools used to develop this work come from the practices of somatic education and dance, and are aimed at any body, because the idea is precisely to work with what you have, and thus build paths of transformation from the perception of your own form, whatever it may be.

This work is based on the principle that energy needs form in order to manifest itself, so form makes graphic the energy that animates it. Form (in)forms. Form is a channel.

The body is form, and the body is also a channel, and it is on the basis of this perception that we work towards making this body/channel fulfill its function of at the same time giving contour and offering passage space for the flows of movement/energy that emerge and pass through us.


ANCORAR is divided into 3 different work modalities, where we will develop 3 basic concepts: anchoring, vitality (pleasure) and self-sustainability.

Therefore, in these 3 workshops we will work on one module at a time:


1. Anchor module:

- We work on the dimension of anchoring and grounding;

- Relationship with the ground;

- Recognition of bones;

- Perception of supports and support structures;

- Perception of one's own weight in relation to gravity and the vertical axis.


2. Compass module:

- We work on the dimension of vitality;

- Contact with one's own pleasure;

- Awareness and activation of our vital energy center, the pelvis;

- Perception of the pelvis as a propellant for movement;

- Perception of the pelvis as a support for movement;

- Circular movements and vibratory patterns.


3. Navigation module:

- We work on the dimension of self-sustainability;

- Relationship between form and energy;

- Relationship between support and movement;

- Perception of the impulse of movement;

- How to support the open channel and offer the conditions for movement to emerge?
