Paneurythmie, Alain Besson

 

Born into a sportsmen's family: (his mother participated in 2 occasions in the Olympic Games and his sister is also a sport teacher): Alain Besson became an Instructor of athletics and fitness. He also regularly taught skiing during school camps.
Training a female team during a competition, he noticed the excellent results of the students to whom he suggested a special concentration coupled with techniques of breath.
To mitigate the limits of the conventional education, he turned then to yoga and karate and studied several years these disciplines with Gil Felley, who taught him later also dance and archery. He then studied with two Japanese masters. One of these, Shiro Daïmon, taught breath during very pushed workshops (5 hours of long keepings back of the breath, on an empty stomach, every morning for 5 days). Alain co-animated a training course of 3 weeks in India with Alberto Paganini, a professor of yoga in Holland, as well as a training course in Egypt with Fabienne Huygen, a professor of dance in Belgium. He then collaborated with several known dancers; Régula Kohlbrenner (Switzerland), Mirjam Daum (Germany), Laurence de Kermadec (France).
During 30 years, Besson studied and danced regularly the Paneurythmie and proposes
at present with his wife courses of this extraordinary meditation in movement which is practised in the morning in the nature, in a circle, with a choir and an orchestra in the center.
Iglika BESSON
Born on July 3rd, 1975 in a modest family in Bulgaria, Iglika aroused very early the surprise of her circle.
When at the age of 6 she entered the Music school, the director refused her his admittance if she didn't become his student in violin. She refused to obey, chose the piano, ended in one year and some months the program for the 3 first years, gave at the age of 9 her 1st concert on the radio and gained several prizes at regional and national level. She was classified 1st (in front of about 5000 students) on examination of entry to Sofia University and ended her law studies splendidly.
After one year of exercise of the profession of jurist, the Court of Dobrich proposed Iglika as judge in front of about hundred of confirmed candidates and she became at the age of 26, the youngest criminal judge in Bulgaria. On her artistic side, while her poems are in course of translation in a French-Bulgarian publishing house, her talent for sculpture wqs admired by a famous Bulgarian artist. She studied then Paneurythmie, a sacred dance created by Peter Deunov, a Bulgarian physician, musician and philosopher. After one year of learning, she was chosen to represent this discipline in a series of 5 films broadcasted several times on the national TV and on an international Bulgarian channel. Two other films will follow as well as an illustrated book in English, to be sold in America. She went then to France and taught this meditation in movement by carrying out at the same time the design of four centres of art and well-being: the house Nina Ricci near Paris, Bugarach in Pays Cathare as well as two other realizations in Bulgaria and in Canada where she pursues at present studies of Interior Design at the University Canada West.
