4268 Broadway, Oakland, CA
Alchemy - a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.
Many of us in the dance, movement, and musical community have felt the impact of the losses incurred with the Fire at Ghost Ship in Oakland on December 3, 2016. In memory of those who are lost and to support those who lost their residence, I'm offering this as a dance and healing environment.
Utilizing a framework based on 5 Rhythms exploration and the Chinese 5 elements, this dance journey will help you develop a stronger connection to your body and the music. You will be part of a mindful dance experience that encourages you to develop trust in your body and how you relate to music. Use your intuition as you are guided through a sequence of the five elements, with improvised movement.
Nancy Asiya combines her 12 years of bellydance experience, many years of yoga practice, and her Master's Degree in Holistic Health Education to facilitate this unique workshop exploration.
