A 3 h workshop of Shakti yoga dance that includes a relaxation with healing sound journey. The discipline of Shakti Dance offers a joyful, graceful and healthy yogic path through the practice of dance. Shakti Dance opens and rebalances the energy channels in the body using a harmonious fusion of flowing asanas, different dance styles, breathing techniques and rhythmic coordination, together with mental focus and mantras. Towards the end of the session, we will offer a healing sound journey to promote a deep relaxation that will allow you to feel and magnify the benefits of the Shakti dance in your body. Sound has the power to re-pattern and balance the vibration of your body, mind, and soul. We will play singing bowls, bells and Native American flute.
