Through my many years as a Dance Artist I have learnt that you CAN find ways of reconnecting to yourself, your mind and body and to others around you.
I know this work is so much juicier than following some of the more traditional dance classes… it digs deep and gives you the freedom to discover YOUR Human and YOUR Dance.
It is different to the open ended structure of Ecstatic dance, and (I would argue!) more expansive than 5 Rhythms, more expressive than Yoga or Pilates, less repetitive than Zumba, less rigid than Ballet or Modern and yet just as (or more!) nourishing, strengthening and confidence building as all of the above!
We really are integrated beings…
Of course we already have a deep mind body connection, we have just lost it somewhere along the way!
Embodied dance and learning creative ways of rediscovering connection literally helps rewire and reprogram old patterns and create new ones.
Dance, especially mindful somatic movement, helps redirect the autonomic nervous system’s fight, flight, freeze responses that we are so often still IN, and lets our bodies have creative alternatives to play, explore, relax and release the deep programming that we have developed and solidified in our Human over time.
