WHAT IS CONSCIOUS DANCE? Conscious dance, also known as moving meditation, is a dance/movement practice to bring energy back into the body, and when in community, connection with others. Dance your own way in a mindful, non-judgment and respectful manner; a heart opening and soul awakening experience; where we connect with our creativity, our authentic self and our bodies aliveness in community. There’s no choreography and no right or wrong way to move. It’s movement that feels right in the moment rather than dancing to ‘look good’.
In this 90-minute free flow dance, we move to our own rhythm as we land in our bodies and out of our minds. This is present moment embodiment…awareness, feeling and sensation. We’ll dance to a variety of world music to energize our energy systems in an effortless presence and integrate our experience of being with stillness and all the places in between.
Dance offers unlimited possibilities to transform our life. To dance is to love, to heal, to listen to our bodies wisdom and to shine our light to see the beauty in all.
It’s open to everyone – absolutely no experience in dance or meditation is needed; just a desire to be present and honor your own rhythm and flow! Whatever your age, ability, fitness or experience of dance, you are very welcome. All you need is willingness, curiosity and a desire to move.
I guide the experience and set an intention for the movement.
SO WHAT DO WE DO? Once doors close, we begin with a welcome circle. An intentional and respectful space is created for participants to move organically. We then dance through a playlist of varied music that lasts about one hour to 1.5 hours. With no specific steps to follow and or pressure to perform, you dance your own dance, your own inner direction.
ARRIVAL: Please arrive 15 minutes early as we will begin promptly and doors will close.
ENDING: We complete with Savasana and share in a closing circle if you choose.
WHAT TO WEAR/BRING: Clothes that you feel comfortable moving in. Bring layers. We dance barefoot on the floor. Bring a water bottle, a hand towel for sweat and a willingness to open to what's possible!
