Joyful and creative movement! Dance and be guided on a journey through your body via your chakra’s! Chakra’s are energetic centers located throughout the body. We will dance with awareness and movement inspired by each chakra. There will be creative dance, group moving meditations, free-form dance, dancing with scarves, perhaps an exercise with a blindfold…all accompanied by varied and inspiring music. No previous dance experience is required. Class is for everybody – no choreography- no problem
Creative movement is a non-linear form of exercise. We can play and explore through dance and shift our state of mind and emotion naturally, creatively. Maybe we access lighter feelings and even Joy! Moving with others can create surprise reactions and can be a vehicle for healing, recovery and joy. All are welcome !
I am starting a blog about my dance healing recovery journey. My commitment is to dance every day for 15 minutes or more. My website is dusty from me not being on it and/or teaching and performing for a couple of years. in 2015-16 I went to college at age 40 to get a certificate in Human Service Work so that I could work in the school system as an educational assistant with children who needed extra assistance. It was a challenging training as is the work. I let my dance and acupressure practice drop off while in school and it hasn’t come back yet and it’s been now a year and half after I finished school. I spiraled into a depression and anxiety this last Summer – perhaps due to burn out; perhaps due to being 42 and not fulfilling a life dream to become a Mother and Partner (create a family in the traditional sense); perhaps due to an underlying emotional habit of not listening to my heart.
So: today is day 2 of getting back on the wagon of dance for personal healing. As well as dance I have been adding art work and singing back into my days.
