Tushrik's work continues to research and push the boundaries of the limits that ‘man’ has placed on himself when it comes to rigor on the body and mind which blurs the fine line between sanity and insanity, thus resulting in a highly physical practice which pushes the limits of the psyche.
Drawing information from many different movement techniques, this practice consists of physical research which pushes durational studies which then informs how the physical being relates to the mental being. The research feels highly sacred as well as spiritual in the way that we relate to the world and all things around and inside us. Tushrik believe's that it takes pushing the body to extreme physical boundaries so that we may reach moments of bliss by breaking beyond those boundaries and connecting to our higher purpose.
