The Dance of Yoga
Indian Classical Dance integrates stylised movement with theatre, set to a rich tapestry of melody and rhythm. The beginners classes for adults give you an embodied experience of yogic psychology and philosophy through dance.
Some of what you will learn and experience
Dance Namaskaram that opens and closes every dance practice
Dances set to Sanskrit slokas, or prayers where dance is an invocation
Guidance on how to create dance for your favorite poems, songs, or stories
Hand gestures and their meanings
Rhythmic dance steps and dynamic movements with clear positioning of the body, alignment, shape and focus.
Dances to Hindu Gods and Goddesses where you embody their qualities, like Goddess Dorga's sword that represents the power of discrimination.
