Shakti Dance Saturday August 6th workshop
4-6pm

Shakti Dance Phases – Rhythmic and flowing floor stretches/asanas, coordinated with the breath, open and deeply relax the body, releasing stress and blockages.The energy released in the previous phase is now increased and distributed throughout body, using rhythmic standing movements and repetitive dance steps to different styles of music and tempo.

Having calmed the mind and accumulated charge, the practitioner is now quite literally propelled into free dance by the inner currents of prana-shakti: “It’s a very relaxed feeling when you come into the flow.Lying in Shavasana (corpse pose), the phase of relaxation calms, harmonizes and consolidates the stimulation of different qualities of energy in the previous phases.A celestial communication or mantric choreography is a movement meditation that realigns and balances the energy field. It may be done sitting or standing, and is generally practiced to a Kundalini Yoga mantra in Gurmukhi (or sometimes a Sanskrit mantra).Still Meditation

Space is now given to return to the stillness within (Shakti merges back into Shiva), to enjoy the fulfilment of emptiness, following the satisfaction of self-expression.

Booking is essential. $30 or $50 for two people when booked in advance.
