Ecstatic Dance is movement medicine. It’s a safe spaces to let go and move freely to beautiful music. Starting with an opening circle setting the theme, we breath, connect, and begin gently, build to a crescendo, then drop down to serenity. The music is rhythmic and melodic World and Electronica with uplifting lyrics carrying transformative messages.
No previous experience needed. All welcome. This isn’t a ‘date’ space. No partner needed. Just your authentic, free self. Dress comfortably. We sweat! Bring a water bottle!
Express the magical self that arises from open acceptance and embodied awareness. In centred, relaxed ease, we tap into our mystical life force so even a crescendo of wild expressive dance feels effortlessly flowing. Magic arises from love and wonder – expect the unexpected!
Cacao served at 7:15 – $5
Our innate visceral intelligence unleashes when we allow ourselves to move in a way that’s totally natural, simply inspired by present moment music and feelings. A facilitated warm up will kick-start this dance, sharing ways to open our bodies, energize the spine and up the healing possibilities while enjoying uplifting lyrics and great rhythms our dance doubling as powerfully liberating therapy if we feel to – here’s how!
This is an extra session, being the 5th Thursday of the month. World and electronic music will start gently, building to a crescendo with beat sync for a smooth continuous dance flow, then dropping us slowly into effortless stillness and connection.
