The heart chakra’s true purpose is to help us experience the joy of loving and receiving love. Located at the center of the chest, the heart chakra balances the energies of our lower and upper chakras—we feel it as the breath that dances between body and spirit.
It is at the heart where we unite our inner feminine and masculine (the dancing yin and yang). When we embrace both the feminine and masculine aspects of ourselves, and become conscious of the dance between them, we become more whole, more empowered.
To dance the heart chakra is to move with lightness, joy and compassion, as reflected in dances from ancient Spain, Egypt and China. Many of these dances used exaggerated arm movements to gently whirl into deep states of joyful harmony. Other dances of China symbolized balance, where mimetic movements expressed the union of heaven and earth. Chakradance draws inspiration from these dances to feel uplifted, light and free. Inspired by the whirling of the ancient ones, we dance a soaring journey of love, compassion and joy.
This workshop will include an opening meditation, a warm-up, dancing with specific music and guided imagery for the heart chakra, mandala artwork creation, plus a closing meditation.
Chakradance is safe for all body types and fitness levels. Please bring a water bottle, dress in clothes that allow free movement, and be prepared to dance barefoot.
