YogaDance®: Move From Your Heart
Sat, Sep 30, 2017 at 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
There is an infinite number of ways your body is capable of moving. Yoga explores many of them and YogaDance® is about exploring the rest. The body is a wise & worldly entity which already knows how to move and YogaDance® is about tuning in to the frequency and vibrancy of your inner energy to explore the ways you can express yourself.
We will start off slowly warming up and easing into motion. We will spend time playing with movement, patterns, rhythms, and tempos. We’ll experiment with moving fast & slow, dramatic & demur, big & small, heavy & light. We’ll play with shifting, pulsing, shimmying, rocking, swaying, swirling, and bouncing. YogaDance® is about being with your whole self, inviting the emotional body to explore graceful, easeful, joyful, primal, passionate, and sorrowful ways the body can “speak” that are beyond human words. We will then ride a cascading wave of energy into a deep and integrative relaxation.
No experience is necessary for this experience. If you long to release your body from the confines of prescribed and habitual movement, if you yearn to express what the human language doesn’t have words for, if you want to take a shortcut to joy and happiness, join us!
