Dance as Worship: Embodying the God/Goddess Within
May 25, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This is a sacred invitation to dance your way to divinity with Ren and the collective as we learn to breathe, stretch and embody our highest selves through movement medicine.
This class offering is intended to be a safe container for anyone who is being called to bridge the worlds of dance and spirituality; through the modalities of spell work, breathwork, movement & meditation.
Stylistically we will be exploring & embodying the energetics of the great warrior goddess, Durga! Through interdisciplinary movements, from burlesque to contemporary & hiphop.
Durga is the epitome of strength, the nurturer, caregiver, protector, and at times, also the destroyer when necessary. She reminds us that the divine feminine isn’t inherently this meek and subservient archetype that indeed our determination, passion and strength is also inherently “feminine” as well. We are unstoppable, fierce and powerful creators of our own reality ????????
This movement workshop consists of 4 parts:
We begin our journey with the breath of fire/activating our passion and creativity from within.
Expand, release tension & find your way home to your body and the present moment through the modalities of yogic postures.
Explore movement activities that expand the mind/body connection, as well as activate creative imagination through the lens of your inner child.
Learn channeled choreography inspired by the fierce energy of goddess Durga, whom we will be embodying and showing reverence to through dance as a form of worship, while honoring the divine within.
