Sadly due to illness Breathing Slimes has been cancelled.
Us humans tend to be very proud of our smart fat mammal brains, until we meet slime molds: primitive creatures that can live freely as single cells, but that can also aggregate together to endure starvation, or to search for energy or light. They are not exactly organisms but a collective of single cells working together as one, accomplishing a sort of instinctual intelligence without nerves or a brain. In this workshop we will try to become slimes by going back 800 million years (that’s when scientists with their brains think slime molds first formed, circa). We will forget about our intellect, and simply connect with others through our breathing, creating pulsating aggregates of many human bodies to reach a more primal and universal understanding of Life.
Breathing yoga teacher and award winning erotic writer.
As a certified yoga teacher she has focused in pranayama (breathing yoga) techniques, applying them in specialized lessons for all fields, from acting to public speaking and health treatments. Being also a shibari enthusiast, she has been able to adapt several pranayama exercises to the kinky experience, an unusual but surprisingly logical match between antique wisdom and contemporary sex. Maranta shares that knowledge during workshops she offers to the BDSM community as she travels the world. She tends to the vanilla community as well, giving "sensual breathing" workshops to fire them up a bit.
Maranta is also an erotic writer, her first novel in Spanish "Hembra" ("Female") about travel+sex was awarded with the xPlora prize in 2013. The second novel, all about bondage and kinky stories, is being co-published with the Xplore Festival for the 2018 Barcelona edition.
