The Work

ANCORAR is a body and movement research project that develops anchoring practices from a study of the pelvis and its connections.

The base of the torso, a gateway between outside and inside, the connection point between the lower and upper body. The pelvis is the source of life, pleasure and creation, it is our first cradle, our first experience of support, of contour and embracement.

When we move our pelvis, we move our story, and touch deep contents of our subjectivity, not only on an individual level, but also on a collective and even ancestral level. However, we can spend a lifetime repressing this potential not to get in touch, and we even live in a society that encourages this. The point is that this lack of contact de-instrumentalizes us and makes us unable to sustain our own expansive potential, our pleasure and life drive. We often end up finding only two ways out: either we repress our expansion because we can't handle it, or we explode completely, wasting a lot of vital energy.

The bet of this work that I have been developing since 2018, is that from a study of the pelvis and its connections, we can find ways to access our personal potency, and develop tools that help us strengthen the structure that will support it.

Methodology and Modulations

Through somatic education and dance practices, we will become aware of the pelvis in its structure, function, and expression, and work toward greater support, vitality, and sustainability.

In the ANCORAR practices, we will transit within 3 modulations of work:

Where we do a grounding work starting from the recognition of important support structures, such as the bones and the pelvic diaphragm. We search in the relationship with the ground, the weight, and gravity for ways to strengthen the structure that will sustain our own power. Here we find our place in the world, our starting point.

Here we work on the relationship with space. We take the pelvis as our starting point and activate its mobile power, which gives us a sense of direction. We start moving, because we have somewhere to go back to.

With our feet on the ground and a sense of direction, in this modulation we find our courage, and we allow ourselves to be a channel, opening passage and giving form to that which crosses us. We experience only offering support to the movement that emerges, and enjoy this expansion with pleasure and autonomy.


An invitation to dive into our subjectivity through the body, dance, and contact with the pelvis, searching for tools that will support our processes and our pleasure.


The ANCORAR practices are for all bodies, except for the practices for pregnant people, which have a targeted approach. Check here below the formats available to experience the practice:
