toni jackie

Whether it be facilitating Dance, Yoga, or Aqua Fitness, I emphasize body mechanics and breathwork for optimal efficiency without over-straining the body.  I have experience working regularly with youth (ages 5-13), adults, and elders.

Through my personal training services, I specialize in water training. I work with elders and those undergoing rehabilitation. In private sessions, I work directly with you to create a physical fitness plan geared towards strengthening and healing. Introductory rate is available. Contact me directly for inquiries.

Workshop Facilitator: VITALITY LAB Dance Circle

VITALITY LAB Dance Circle is geared towards shedding the embodied pedestrian structures of the city-scape daily routine, and honing and dis-covering the vital movements of the human being.  Toni Pasion guides participants through decolonial methods of movement meditation and Oceania dance forms to create a safe space for regeneration and vital emergence.  This includes breathwork and dance from her research and experience in Hula, Philippine dance, Pacific Contemporary and Indigenous Contemporary dance, as well as her practice as a water physical trainer and yogi.

All ages and genders are welcomed and encouraged.

“Sometimes it’s not about forcing your flow to happen. Sometimes it’s just letting go into the process of unfolding. That’s the power of movement, the breath, and water.”

 

Presentation

In conjunction with Pamana Kali Philippine Martial Arts & Culture, we offer Philippine dance and martial arts demos and presentations ranging from 30 minutes – 1 hour.  Various presentations have included the William Grant Still Arts Center; South Bay Mall in Carson, CA; Otter/Freelance Media in Playa Vista, CA; BAYANG Art & Music Collective in Carson, CA; Torrance Memorial Holiday Festival; Long Beach PAROL Festival; Long Beach Filipino Festival; and more. Notable performances include the World Itotia Festival at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica & La Plaza de la Cultura in Downtown Los Angeles.
