The Art of MOVEMENT  Yoga dance

Humans, like the Earth, constitute 70% water. The lymphatic system is responsible for the management of these waters in the human body – what the heart is to the circulatory system, movement is to the lymphatic. However, most people live in a social matrix that promotes a sedentary life style. Having

a movement practice in our everyday life becomes a must if we want to maintain a sense of well-being.

In my study of different movement practices, human energy anatomy and different mystic traditions I have developed
an unique style where, using the power of ritual and myth, we dive deep in archetypes which are alive deep in our unconscious. This allows our movement to take us to a place of coherence and integrity, where we can access deeper states of being which allow us to connect to our bodies in profound ways. This is crucial, as embodiment and presence are essential for a well-being state.

Dance

Dance when you’re perfectly free

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”

My love for the poetry of Rumi has always inspired me to dance. He endlessly speaks of the beloved’s dance. In Sufi mysticism dancing is key in the process of embodiment of the Divine. In Buddhism we have Shiva as the Cosmic Dancer and Kali as the trance dance black goddess. In Native American tradition there are  infinite ritual dances, and we could go on forever. When we dance we connect with the rhythm of Life itself.
