Mantra and Dance Meditation Workshops

Dance liberates us from our thinking minds as we fully inhabit our bodies

Dance meditation is a type of meditation in which we become present by using the rhythm and focusing solely on experiencing the movement. If we abandon the need to control our movements and our thoughts, we become the dance, or we let the dance happen through us.

Our body is filled with life, and it is constantly generating energy. While dancing, part of the meditation is to perceive the subtle energies and feelings which emerge from inside of us.

We use improvised dancing as a means of self-discovery and we share the group’s energy to let go of our ego. The workshop starts with a pranayama (breathing) exercise, followed by a free dance, a mantra meditation and finally a few minutes of silence.
