Are you ready for a fun alternative for your Friday night? Do you feel stagnancy in your body and want to move? Are you looking for a space to let your inner child play and shake? Do you just want to have fun and get weird with some like minded individuals?
If you said yes to any of these please come and join me in an evening of free movement Trance Dance at the New Beautiful
Offered once/ month on Fridays 7-9:30pm
Trance Dance is an ancient practice of celebration, activation and letting go through organic free movement in the body. In this two hour workshop will explore movement with or without a blindfold to Shamanic rhythms melodiously blended to move through the chakras and energy body. The evening will begin with an Opening Circle where we call in Source and Guides and activate our collective intent. Opening will be completed with a short guided meditation rooting us into the Earth so that we may rise and RE-Member our full Expansive SELF through our movement.
This is a space where you can come as you are or dress for ceremony/celebration! Please bring any drums, rattles, flutes or sacreds’ that you would like to share in the experience.
I am happy to announce that after completing my first half of Shambhava Yoga certification and having a few weeks to let it all sink in that I am feeling inspired to begin my practice teaching journey to refine what I have learned. I have found great expansion in my personal practice through these techniques and with it a stillness in my center that is noticeably more present. Throughout this summer I am gathering experience in teaching through this opportunity, therefore I ask only a $40 investment for my time<3
What that means for you is that I am now offering personalized 90 min Asana & Pranayama sessions. I am working with Hatha Asana which is geared towards building a solid foundation with proper alignment. We will spend plenty of time breaking down each asana to find where your work is in the pose, optimizing the benefit you receive from your efforts. In addition we will spend time learning how our breath can realign and center our mental/emotional state and how to begin integrating these techniques into your daily life. We will also touch on a variety of Shambhava meditation and mantra techniques that can benefit beginner to advanced level practices.
I have always believed that a strong foundation is the key to a successful practice of any kind. Through this work I am finding every day a deeper connection with my foundation and more ways to stay aligned in optimal health in all aspects of experience.
I very much look forward to sharing this time and experience with you.
