Hello lovely Ladies….Welcome to Chakradance..
What is Chakradance?
Chakradance is a dance practice for body and soul. Ii’s a powerful experience that will free and energize you. It combines spontaneous dance, guided imagery and music to promote that wonderful state of calm vitality known as “well being” The music is the key, as it resonates deeply with each of the seven Chakras – the energy centers that integrate and regulate our physical, mental and emotional energies. Many who have experienced it claims it has transformed their lives for the better, others, simply that they enjoyed it hugely.
What makes it more than your normal belly – dancing or salsa class?
It’s not about steps or performance, you dance with your eyes closed in a darkened room. It’s more like a dynamic, moving meditation. Its completely about freedom of expression, there is no right way to Chakradance as everyone has his or her own rhythm and movement. With it’s roots on Jungian psychology, Chakradance encourages people to dance for self- discovery and self healing.
What is the main attraction?
The best thing about Chakradance is you don’t have to follow a set routine to feel the benefits, you just let the music move you. People of all ages (16 – 90) can participate. Some people are attracted by the fact that it’s fun and energetic workout to great music. Other people say it leads to a Spiritual awakening. Most people love it because it provides a haven away from their stressed everyday lives, and a rare opportunity to find true freedom of expression.
What are the benefits (both physical and mental) of Chakradance?
The most obvious physical benefit is that it boosts your fitness. Its a cardio workout that gets everything moving from your face to your feet. It really gets your heart pumping, releasing endorphins to make you feel great. For those looking for a more spiritual connection, each Workshop is designed to work a different Chakra. There are seven main Chakras these centers of energy may be under or over active. Balancing them leads to many benefits, including better relationships, improved confidence and self esteem, emotional health, enhanced creativity, and heightened inspiration and clarity. But the biggest benefit of all is the absolute freedom to be yourself!!
It is seen as a tool to improve overall health and well-being.
Chakradance is a unique because it’s a cross between dynamic meditation and dance. It requires you to participate physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. It is extremely therapeutic, although not in an analytical way. The key to it’s healing power is the experience itself. Not only is it a new physical activity, Chakradance truly integrates body and soul.
Description of the Chakradance experience…
Chakradance is almost like entering a waking dream. Similar to Shamanic Trance dance. Specifically selected and composed music, and tailored visualizations help you tap into your inner world. You close your eyes and surrender to the music. From here the process involves letting the movements emerge spontaneously. As the music’s vibrations affect you, you may see images in your minds eye, recall memories or gain insights related to each Chakra. You may also feel emotions or physical sensations.
Can music really help balance my Chakras?
Each of the seven Chakras vibrates at it’s own frequency. Music is able to balance the Chakras by using the vibration of sound to tune into each energy center. The music is modern dance music with specific musical tones that resonate with the Chakras. Interwoven with the music are the pure tones od Crystal bowls sources from around the globe, that release a vibrational sound field that is an essential ingredient of each dance.
Chakradance music has a lasting effect. The vibrations continue to pulse outward into our energy field long after the sounds have stopped playing. The more we experience these healing sounds, the greater and the more permanent the effect. When the music is combined with spontaneous dance the healing effect is magnified.
How often would someone need to Chakradance for and for how long to achieve full benefits?
It’s possible to Chakradance for as little as 15 mins a day to feel the benefits. Many people get hooked after their first time.
We will be running a 9 week course of 90 min Workshops with each class focusing on a different Chakra ( this includes the introductory and integration class)
The more regularly you do it the better!!Each time you Chakradance is different.
