Express Your Essence!
A Brief Overview
Shakti Dance® is the Yoga of Dance, culminating in the mergence of Shakti and Shiva; the individual “drop” with the all-embracing “ocean” of awareness.
Shakti Dance® is a unique Yogic System with a distinctive methodic practice, created by Sara Avtar. It consists of a series of innovative techniques, combined in Eight Phases, which implement insights drawn from Yogic Philosophy and the practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. It fuses breath, motion and mindfulness, expanding and merging consciousness with infinite Being.
The systematic approach of Shakti Dance® awakens and embodies organic Principles of Harmonious Movement, which in turn harmonise the Flow of Prana in mind and body. This harmonisation opens the practitioner up to the ‘Creative Spirit of Shakti’, enabling ever-present ‘Wakeful Being’ to shine forth and give expression to the fullness of potential.
In Form: Shakti Dance® is a unique and harmonious blend of Flowing Asanas (Shakti Stretching), 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.
