is a movement practice that is grounded in the map of the chakra system. For thousands of years the chakra system has supported human beings to find harmony and wellness through the union of body, mind and spirit, and they provide
a solid and spacious structure for various forms of moving meditation.
Our new website THE MOVING BODY is going live August 2015. Please visit us at www.themovingbody.ie
The chakras are energetic centres that exist within the subtle body, and govern related systems and body parts. Each of the seven major chakra centres relates to a sphere of human experience; from grounding and becoming present in our bodies through to sexuality, power, love, communication, vision, intuition and connection with the divine.
These classes begin with a freestyle warm up, followed by a short movement excercise to tune into the chakra centres. This is enough to activate the centres which begin to move toward balance and release blockage/stress.
From there we move deeper into the dance where each persons individual and spontaneous expression is encouraged. Music and facilitation are designed to support this throughout the class.
Freestyle moving meditation offers a pathway to connect within, release stress and become present to ourselves and others. It is a great way to take space, relax the mind and engage creatively with our lives.
Each persons individual expression is encouraged in the dance and supported with music and facilitation during the sessions.
Open to all, beginners welcome.
