XDance Festival 2023 will have a dedicated room for resting. The room is a space that people can come to be quiet, take time out and rest. There will be 20 minute daily breathing sessions guided by Ida-Maria Mokki at different times. You can also make a request to Ida if you would like to have a private session on your own.

Otherwise the space is free for anyone to use for being silent and resting. There will be 2 fatboy cushions and some blankets in the space.

GUIDELINES for the use of the room.

Hello. My name is Ida-Maria Mokki. I’m a professional dancer and I also work as a nanny. I’m very happy to guide you into conscious breathing in the quiet room.

I started my inner discovery journey with conscious breathing in 2021. As a result of that, the relationship with myself and the surrounding world began to become more compassionate. After living most of my life in a state of conflict and outside of my body, I gradually started finding my way back to my home within me. It felt like a miracle.

I simply began to open up for the truth about myself. I believe our breath can teach and show us if we are willing to just stop and start listening. And this is a gift so beautiful, simple and profound. My future dream is to work with breath to show people how their own support is already present in their breath.
