Yumi and Maria share a passion for dance and its transcendent and transformative qualities.  They are like spiritual comrades and have both been exploring particular spiritual practice reflecting from their cultural and global identity through dance.   Maria is like the earth and water that is moved by the fire and air. She is seen by many who attend her workshops as a nurturing mother. In her teaching, she holds her students in their dance, enough for them to find their way, then sets them free.   Where as Yumi is like fire and air that is moved by the earth and water. As a kind of catalyst, Yumi also helps people to open up new territories through her gentle provocation exercises.
