Location: Shakti Shala
Dancing Warrior is a dance/movement class that fuses elements of dance, yoga and martial arts. Everything we do in this class will be to music — Empowerment, Strength, Freedom and Expression is the thrive.
We will be working towards a choreographed movement phrase to music where the body will be ready to move through space using all levels and also going upside down.
The name “Dancing Warrior “ already gives us a feel of strength, empowerment, joy, dynamic and that is what this class is all about. Moving in a way that lets us feel strong, powerful, graceful and beautiful from the inside out and all around.
This class fuses yoga, dance and martial arts movements. We will start with a strong but grounded and organic full body warm up, guided to music with focus on body awareness, strength, dynamic and fluidity so we are well prepared to work on a movement sequence incorporating all these things and putting it on music and rhyme. We will use the last part of class for improvisation, free flow and/or use the sequence we worked on and create your own version. This allows everybody to have movements to hold on to but express yourself how ever you feel.
Dance is another language that can speak louder than words. Let your Dancing Warrior come alive and be explored.
