Express Your Essence!
A Brief Overview
Shakti Dance® is the Yoga of Dance, merging Shakti and Shiva; the individual “drop” with the all-embracing “ocean” of awareness.
As a form of yoga, Shakti Dance® uses flowing, rhythmic organic movements to harmonise mind, body and spirit. Combining, breath, movement, mantra and mindfulness, we are returned to our true nature ~ tuning the body as in instrument to express our essence, with original creativity and authenticity.
Shakti Dance® is a unique Yogic System with a distinctive method and practice, created by Sara Avtar. It combines in Eight Phases a series of innovative practices and techniques, each embodying the active ingredient, "Swara Rasa®". Shakti Dance® embodies the confluence of insights drawn from Yogic Philosophy, Sufism, Buddhism, Tai Chi and Dance. It fuses breath, organic motion and mindfulness, to align in resonance and merge with infinite Being.
The system of Shakti Dance® stimulates the awakening and embodiment of organic Principles of Harmonious Movement, and brings the Flow of Prana in mind and body into harmonic resonance. This harmonisation activates the ‘Creative Spirit of Shakti’, allowing ‘Wakeful Being’ to shine forth, for full expression of your potential.
In Form: Shakti Dance® is a unique and harmonious blend of Flowing Asanas, Rhythmic Breathing, Energising Dance Exercises, Free Dance, Relaxation, Still Meditation, and Mantra Movement Meditations (Celestial Communications & Mantric Choreographies).
In Essence: Shakti Dance® practice cultivates the free, organic and creative expression of inner being. It massages and liberates the body and mind from blockages, relaxing stress – opening out into peaceful wakeful spaciousness and a gracefully flowing life.
“The soul is reflected and expressed through our dance when we are in most intimate contact with that Being that animates us.” ~ Sara Avtar
Shakti Dance Trailer:
Shakti Dance® utilises the conscious practise of dance, infused with the wisdom of yoga to develop awareness of body, mind and feeling. When the body is massaged mindfully through breath and movement, dance becomes yoga. Releasing physical tension, the mind relaxes, expanding to transcendence and yogic union. This intuitive flowing 'yoga of dance' enhances prana, rejuvenates mind and body, while igniting Creative Spirit!
Practicing Shakti Dance® returns you to a pre-conditioned state of being, entering into pure creative flow. It is attuning to the power that creates and manifests - feeling the animating life force pulsing through the physical body - relaxing deeply, becoming present and alert to sensation. It is the 'Ahhhhhh' as the mind softens and you enter into stillness - the place where healing happens and inspiration is born.
