What is CHAKRADANCE ?
CHAKRADANCE is a dance practice for body and soul. It’s a powerful experience that will free and energize you. It combines spontaneous dance, guided imagery and music to
promote that wonderful state of calm vitality known as “wellbeing”.
The music is the key, as it resonates deeply with each in turn of the seven major chakras – the energy centres that integrate and regulate our physical, mental and emotional
energies. Many who have experienced it claim it has transformed their lives for the better; others, simply that they enjoyed it hugely.
CHAKRADANCE is not about steps or performance; you dance with your eyes closed in a darkened room. It’s more like a dynamic, moving meditation. It’s completely about freedom of expression; there is no right way to CHAKRADANCE as everyone has his or her own rhythm and movement. With its roots in Jungian psychology, CHAKRADANCE encourages people to dance for self-discovery and self-healing.
What are the benefits (both physical and mental) of CHAKRADANCE?
The most obvious physical benefit is that it boosts your fitness. It’s a cardio workout that gets everything moving from your face to your feet. It really gets your heart pumping; releasing endorphins to make you feel great. For those who are looking for a more spiritual connection, each workshop is designed to work a different chakra. There are seven main chakras; these centres of energy may be under or over active. Balancing
them leads to many benefits, including better relationships, improved confidence and self esteem, emotional health, enhanced creativity, and heightened inspiration and clarity. But the biggest benefit of all is the absolute freedom to be yourself!
So it can be seen as a tool to improve overall health and wellbeing?
Yes, absolutely. CHAKRADANCE is unique because it’s a cross between dynamic meditation and dance. It requires you to participate physically, emotionally, intellectually AND spiritually. It is extremely therapeutic, although not in an analytical way. The key to its healing power is the experience itself. Not only is it a new physical activity, CHAKRADANCE truly integrates body and soul.
