Goddess Dance, an eight-week series, creates a meaningful and fun experience weaving body, psyche and spirit. Each class journeys into a specific goddess and related chakra through embodied visualizations, guided stretching, freestyle dance, and heart-opening sisterhood activities. We begin on the mat deeply sensing the body. Once we are feeling centered and comfortable, we work off the mat in intentional free-style dance and connecting activities. This is not about what we look like, but how we feel. This is not a performance class, but an experiential journey. Diversity is encouraged for a rich sisterhood community - this class is designed for all ages of women over 18, all ethnicities, and all levels, and is especially designed with a sensitivity towards women who want to dance, but are afraid to. Much transformation can come from reclaiming our primal and spiritual right to dance!
This is an incredible opportunity to rediscover, embrace, and empower yourself and each other in a safe and loving space.
