Moving Meditations for Self Discovery.
These movement experiences reintroduce you to see yourSelf in a new fascinating light and to generate a new gratitude for your form, knowing that it is your own unique creation that shows your essence to the world.
Dancing gets you out of your head and brings your awareness to your body & feelings. Emotions are energy in motion. Any feelings you haven't allowed yourself to fully process out of fear can be moved out of the body in a gentle and healthy expression of movement. The result being a feeling of freedom, healing and joy from the release.
Intuitively you will hear your soul singing within motivating your body to move while the embrace of the breath nurtures your every step.
Using dance as an offering & surrendering to the movement permits for a gentle flow of energies which creates transformation and healing. This form of meditation also actualizes opportunities to obtain a profound inner stillness which allows guidance to rise and answers to be heard.
All classes begin with a still meditation followed by a short guided warm up to prepare the body for movement. Then each participant will dance however they feel is right for them. No prior dance training necessary. After the dance portion is completed there will be another still meditation to assimilate the new awareness of your being.
These classes incorporate individual adventures and group interactions which helps to mirror our relationship to how we treat ourself. The class may also include breathing techniques, mudras and positive affirmations.
It is fun and a great source of exercise!
Allow yourself to shimmer, shine and expand through
"Dancing gives you a triple dose of happiness by speeding up your metabolism, flushing out stress hormones from your body, and increasing levels of feel-good endorphins," says Barbara Ainsworth, PhD, professor of exercise and wellness at Arizona State University.
