Starts 10th and 11th February 2020
CHAKRADANCE™ is a well-being movement practice. It uses spontaneous dance, to specific chakra-resonant music, for the purpose of healing and re-tuning your whole energy system.
You can read all about it in Natalie Southgate's new book, published by Hay House.
The purpose of Chakradance is simple, if ambitious: to help you to more fully embody your soul.
At the heart of Chakradance is the music. For all of us, the seven major chakras are the energetic gateways through which body, mind and spirit come together, literally embodying the soul.
In Chakradance classes and courses, each of these seven chakras has its own unique body of wonderfully danceable music, resonating to its own specific vibrational frequencies.
On one level, Chakradance can be experienced as a joyful affirmation of who you truly are. Using spontaneous dance, creativity and your imagination, it leads to an awakening, a discovery of your true self.
But at a deeper level, Chakradance is also about healing and balance. By surrendering to the music of each chakra, we dance from the inside out and find ourselves awakening and healing ancient hurts; expressing – often for the first time – long-blocked emotions; and opening ourselves up to levels of spiritual connection higher than we ever thought possible.
This is what we mean when we describe Chakradance™ as “rhythm for your soul”.
ABOUT OUR CLASSES
I love the way dancing makes me feel. It brings all the cells to life. It starts to awaken me and talk about changing energy....
The quickest and easiest way to change your energy or you mood is to put on some good music and move that body...
I found Chakradance because I wanted to do something that I love to do, that makes me feel happy that brings me joy and I wanted to share something that was a gift. I didn't realise just how healing this modality really is until I have watched not only myself have amazing results, changes and shifts but I have also watched others. The journey is magical and wonderous and sometimes heavy, but it brings the light.....
It is 9 weeks, once a week for about an hour and a half, you can expect to feel joy, lightness, awake, free, aligned, balanced, carefree, vivacious, sensual, Magical, like a warrior, and the list goes on. This isn't only for women but for men also and if anyone of my friends anywhere in the world is interested in training to be a facilitator please also get in touch...
There will be two workshops I will be running each week. They are the Awakening series and the Freedom Series.
Freedom will run each Monday evening at 6:30 pm
And Awakening on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm.
The Freedom Class is a follow on for those who have done the Awakening class but you can start here too. (if Mondays suit you better)
The Awakening this round will be all newbies.
I am only taking a limited amount of people for each workshop for space reasons.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We begin each lesson with a short meditation and then we move into a warm up of the body and move through each of our chakra systems waking them up. We dance with a blindfold, or the eyes closed ( I find a blindfold or eye mask best ) as it helps you to go more inward and worry less about the external world. Bring along you own eye mask or I will have spares or a blind fold.
The music has been created to resonate with each of the Chakra systems. I have attached some information on the Chakra systems and also a Chakra health check so that you can see where you may be feeling a little blocked....
We then move into working with a specific Chakra system each week. So this is what the weeks look like.
Week 1 Introductory class. Awakening the entire chakra system.
Week 2 The base or root chakra
Week 3 The sacral Chakra
Week 4 The Solar Plexus
Week 5 The Heart Chakra
Week 6 The Throat Chakra
Week 7 The Third Eye
Week 8 The Crown Chakra
Week 9 An integration of all the Chakras and our Mandalas
After each session we sit still in a meditative state and create a mandala that represents the journey that we took during the class. It does not matter if you cannot draw, it is all about what come out from your experience.
Think of it as a 'dynamic moving meditation to music'... or as 'the musical sister of yoga' (without the set-piece poses or asanas).
There is no right or wrong way to move your body. It’s a journey of self-discovery. Each chakra is explored through specific music, guided imagery and your own free, improvised dance, done in a candle-lit space with your eyes softly closed. This begins to activate inner experiences.
It’s almost like entering into a waking dream. You may see images in your mind’s eye while you are dancing or gain insights. You may also experience feelings, emotions or physical sensations. Most classes conclude with participants creating a personal mandala artwork, to help 'anchor' their experience and for their own personal use in reflecting on the class in the following days.
Chakradance puts you in touch with the sacred within yourself. It helps you re-connect with your own soul, unique and beautiful. Dancing the seven chakras is like dancing into seven different worlds, seven different facets of your whole self, each with their own lessons, meanings and stories. As a practice, it helps you to feel more balanced, more joyful, and to radiate your own true colors out into the world.
Dancing through the ancient chakra system awakens not only our bodies, but expands the mind, and calls out to the soul. The chakra system provides us with a model for integrating body, mind and spirit. This model encompasses the whole of human experience and provides an opportunity to find harmony and balance within our lives. Carl Jung, the pioneer of analytical psychology, was one of the first westerners to draw inspiration from this model in relation to his work on what he called the ‘individuation process’, meaning the journey towards wholeness.
The chakra system forms an energetic ladder that bridges our material world with our spiritual world. We can use this ladder as a way of reaching higher realms of consciousness, and as we climb back down, we are able to integrate new levels of awareness into our daily lives. Working with the chakras through dance connects us to the core of our physical beings. Once this connection is achieved, other less tangible experiences of the mind and spirit can be contained, embodied and finally integrated.
