(Linda Vargas and members of her company)

Highly suitable for corporate functions, The Invigorating Experience workshop is facilitated by Linda Vargas, Durban’s well-known and highly respected Flamenco dance specialist.

The Invigorating Experience embraces diversity and the progression of personal development. It focuses on generating team cohesion and strengthening team solidarity while enriching individual awareness and unleashing personal power. Another vital component is the enhancement of effective communications.

“As you experience Linda Vargas’ workshops, you will find the playing field levels and that leadership, teamwork, passion and work ethics take on a new meaning. Linda applies the principles of flamenco ‘stamping and clapping’ as a point of departure from which conventional messages are transformed into powerfully invigorating learning experiences. From there interactive discussions further help to stimulate even deeper insights around the experience. ‘Breaking the routine’ is shown to be energising whilst simultaneously inciting latent creativity. A new perspective is given on the passion and the power of ‘moving together in the same direction’ as the positive implications for your business become openly apparent.” - Shannan Browne – B.A. Industrial Psychology, P.G.C.E.
