Let Your Yoga Dance is a joyous movement experience that celebrates the dancer in all of us. It connects mind, body, and spirit while promoting strength, flexibility, and a healthy, happy body. In Yogadance, we use yoga and self-expressive dance to systematically work through every inch of the body. We use movement to work through physical, emotional, psychological, and creative blockages. Get your groove on and your heart pumping to inspiring music while strengthening and lengthening your muscles. Yogadance encourages inner exploration and self-expression. Find freedom in your body and unleash your creativity. No yoga or dance experience is necessary!
WHAT DO WE DO IN CLASS?
My teacher Megha Nancy Buttenheim, founder of Let Your Yoga Dance, beautifully describes a Yogadance class:
“Yogadance is a chakra dance explosion. Seven energy centers provide the basis for this dance of yoga. Through inspiring music, we feel the grounding force of the first earthen chakra in our feet, legs, and tailbones. We spiral up through the senses to the sacrum and pelvis, our second chakra, dancing the pleasurable. We travel still farther, experiencing the third center of power, strength and solar energy. We are unconquerable in our warrior selves. In the center of the heart, we dance healing and loving kindness out to the world. We then blast into the fifth chakra with sweaty intensity, streaming across the room with unbridled bliss. Now we quiet down into the dance meditation of the sixth energy center, gently inviting our wild expressions back home to our cores. We gift back to ourselves all that we have given out throughout our lives. We find the unvoiced expression of our bodies, minds and spirits. In the seventh chakra, we move more slowly still into meditation and deep relaxation. We feel the pulse of our hearts, the bliss of our spirits, and the grounding support of mother earth beneath us. We conclude by sitting still together in a sacred circle. Refreshed, rejunenated, at home in the self. Profoundly new.”
