What we're about

We meet every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. at Live Love Dance and Arts Center in Broomfield. No experience is necessary. We support a safe space to explore free form movement. Using a variety of music, often incorporating a theme for each week, we drop into our body awareness and let the body move. Mindfulness facilitation is incorporated to support tracking awareness while moving, using the 7 attitudes of mindfulness practice. Cost is $10 to attend.

This is an opportunity for exploration with no right or wrong to it. We learn to trust and listen to the body, increasing our awareness of how it feels to be present and embodied. Movement, by it's own nature, offers opportunity for stress reduction, physical exercise as well as increased capacity to tap into the body’s own healing and creative resources. Generally, people walk away feeling rejuvenated! We have a lot of fun and have developed a lovely community!

Our classes are usually 60 to 75 minutes in duration. We usually start out slow, warming up, and then move into more vibrant movement and energy, followed by a slowing down and eventually into a quiet, restful state. We have opportunity to stay and connect with others after class and this has been a valuable time for current members. You are free to stay or go as you like. Our classes are open to everyone regardless of previous experience with movement, dance, yoga, meditation, or spiritual practice. All fitness levels are welcome. We are inviting a safe space for you to come as you are and for the possibility to move and be moved in your experience. You are encouraged to take your movement practice to your level.

Stepping into a new experience can be a little vulnerable. Should you have any questions or I can support you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Please note that we advertise Living Your Dance ~ Mindful Movement events through multiple channels, so our RSVP count on our site may not be reflective of the actual number of attendees. We hope to have you join us soon!

Testimonials ~

"For me, Dancing Mindfulness practice has been a form of a deep and powerful meditation. Unlike the regular sitting meditation, movement allows me to connect to what feels like the deepest Truth while bypassing most of the endless mental chatter. It also has been very helpful in transcending the critic inside my head that judges me and the world around me. And once that sense of self is no longer the absolute ruler, a wonderful feeling of freedom begins to emerge." ~ Anton

"Jennifer's play lists are amazing. Every week is different and exciting. The themes she chooses makes moving to the music special: an awesome combo of making suggestions while encouraging us do our own thing." ~ Suzann

"So fun! So freeing! l loved the welcoming energy and opportunity to open up and DANCE!!" ~ Renee So glad I found it! It's fabulous!" ~ Antionette

"My personal intention is clear on the purpose of my attending (never missing) Mindful dancing/moving sessions. As a man/male I have come to know that it requires process to get out of my head and into my heart. Moving my body to whatever music is presented during the session forces me to give control of myself over to my heart. It's in this space where Spirit shows up for me. I have had more Spiritual conversations with myself during this mindfulness practice than I have ever had in all my years of going to church. This is now my "church" every Sunday and I will be forever grateful for this experience! ~ Rich

"Such safe space to let it all just roll out onto the dance floor." ~ Anna

THE CIRCLE OF EMERGENCE™ ~ FREE EVENT We live in times of unprecedented change. The old ways of earning a living, caring for health, engaging loving relationships, gathering in community, sustaining the environment and dealing with every other aspect of living are no longer effective in the new, emerging world. Living well in this rapidly changing landscape requires new understandings of ourselves and our places within it. In the past, knowledge for living in a slowly changing world came through long-held structures of organizations and accepted philosophies. The current, swiftly shifting world demands fresh agility and alertness to respond quickly and effectively to the never before seen changes that continuously arise. We must learn to access inner wisdom and use our inner guidance immediately to navigate the turbulent currents of transformation. The Circle of Emergence™ offers a setting to discover the deeper knowing of ourselves and our relationship to the world needed to effectively negotiate this time of ever-shifting change and upheaval. We warmly invite you to join us on Friday, February 22, 2019 in a Circle of Emergence™ gather to facilitate a deeper knowing of ourselves and our relationship to the world. With acceptance, curiosity and humor we will explore ways of settling into presence, deepening our knowing of body, mind and surroundings, discovering a fresh vision of self and community as a basis for navigating the shifting, changing world with greater peace, joy, energy and connection.
