Shakti Dance is Dance of Yoga
Merge with the life force and give expression to the soul impulse and connect with the wonderful feeling of expansion and freedom through the art of yoga dance.
I will be leading a session of the different stages of Shakti Dance starting tuning in with a mantra and mudra (hand gestures) followed by sitting and standing stretches in motion that will lead to learning a few steps and then to a free flow dance that allow the people to go wild and dance in total freedom of expression whatever that is, then relaxation and ending with the learning of a hand gesture mudra with singing a mantra. The whole process is engaging and fun.
