Sunday Dance (https://www.facebook.com/PhoenixSundayDance/)
Imagine a room filled with all sorts and varieties of humans, willing and ready to take a brief journey into connection and discovery of Self. We do this in the sacred space of the dance studio, moving freely to music created to transport us from our minds into our hearts, our breath, and our limbs. Allowing our bodies to express our thoughts and feelings into motion.
Moving into more of YOU.
We begin with a guided warm up to get us connected with our bodies and breath, followed by about 80 minutes of freestyle, conscious movement. Ending together in a heart-centered closing circle. No one leaves a being a stranger.
Dress comfortably to move, bring your water bottle.
BE curious and Join US!
Hosted by Nina Smith
Adults over 18 are welcome
What you might experience at Sunday Dance (https://www.facebook.com/PhoenixSundayDance/)...
As you enter the studio, remember that a sacred container has been
created, and that we are all moving into our own inner space.
Turn off your cell phone. Keep your conversations outside in the lobby.
And BE welcomed into the dance!
For the first 15 - 20 minutes we’ll be arriving into the room, arriving into our
bodies, warming up, stretching.
Breathe deeply, your breath will help to connect you with the process,
especially if you‘re new to this practice. Anytime you feel unsure, focus on
your breath, on the bottoms of your feet securely on the floor, allow your
body to move freely.
The music is designed in a ‘double wave’ moving from a slow circular
flowing tempo to faster sharper staccato, building into chaos before
releasing into lyrical, arriving at stillness then flowing again into the 2nd
wave (as inspired by the 5Rhythms). Allowing us to move even deeper.
In this form, the music is a guide/support into our inner realms.
What am I feeling right now? How does my body like to move - right now?
This is your time, your practice. Tune in, BE curious about your Self.
If you feel the need to connect with another on the dance floor, remember - we are all in different places within, make sure you have full eye contact and consent before engaging another, before moving in too close. If you need to be lying/sitting down on the floor at any time, please do so on the edges of the room, very near the wall, keeping aware of moving dancers.
There may be tears, shouts, or other forms of release happening on the
dance floor. Do give space to the person in process, allow for their
unfolding, we do not need to fix nor assist. The facilitator is holding
everyone in awareness.
Use the opportunity to deepen your own self-discovery. Honor each others’
space and journey, we are all moving into more of our Selves.
Closing is our sacred time, a time to put our names into the circle and
briefly share what is living in our hearts and minds. Pass the chocolate and YUUMmmmm…
