Collin Edina has practiced massage & bodywork professionally for over 20 years. He engages in research development of functional aesthetics; arts as a utility for exercising holistic well being. His introduction to Contact Improv in 1989 blossomed into a fascination which continues to bear new fruits in the form, applying CI principles within aquatics (Improvisations in Immersion), acrobalancing and bodywork. He continually seeks to bring people together in unique and redeeming ways such as with skill exchange events, or utilizing participatory experimental theater to enhance the Mind-Body practices he offers.
…and Collin particularly enjoys sharing the experience of being in the Here and Now!
