The primary aim of Studio Abhyas has been the dissemination of traditional knowledge; yoga and dance. However, after years of practice and engagement in these fields, our focus has shifted from conventional training towards an in-depth examination of the pedagogy and experimentation with the practice of these forms. Currently, all the activities in the studio are centered on the body; along with rigorous practice, the studio is involved in creating courses, reading groups, and workshops which are geared to academically engage with the historical, philosophical and political redefinitions of their embodied practices over the last century and a half.
The courses offered by Studio Abhyas are not strictly academic but require rigorous participation in class. The studio recently completed the first module of an 8-week online course titled – Taming the Sensory Body: Memory, Text, Idea. The next course offered by the studio is titled – Poetics in India Dance which is scheduled to start in July 2020. Presently, all the courses are designed for live online transmission; we plan to expand our format in the future.
