A free flow dance experience… Be free to move or dance however you like! We dance with the lights off to create a safe and supportive environment where you won’t be seen or judged. Movement and dance allow you to release stressful or stagnant energy stored in your body. Since emotions are energy in motion, it’s no wonder that any movement in your body can help shift your emotions.
We begin with an opening sacred circle allowing us to explore the interplay of light and shadow aspects within ourselves. After all, there is no light without the shadow! With this awareness comes acceptance of your whole self. Tania will invite you to choose one or more Oracle cards to help you set an intention for the hour-long dance/movement in the dark. The music is specifically chosen to take you on a journey, whether it’s lyrical, instrumental or both, you can be moved either physically and/or emotionally. Remember it’s okay to feel emotions…
Feeling is healing! After the dance, you can either draw and/or write to reflect on what came up in a Yin and Yang mandala. Artistic ability is NOT a requirement, it’s all about your expression and the meaning you find for yourself! You then have an opportunity to share what has come up with the group in the closing circle (if comfortable). Tania’s aim is to create a safe space for you to express yourself and connect with others. Numbers are strictly limited to ensure comfort and a quality experience for everyone.
Hope to see you there!
