IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS
What is Dancing Mindfulness?
The dancing mindfulness practice is an expressive arts experience open to everyone regardless of previous experience with dance, yoga, music, meditation, or spiritual practice. Originally developed as a community class, the dancing mindfulness practice continues to evolve beyond the class-only format.
Dancing Mindfulness is a channel for accessing mindful awareness that can be practiced individually or with a group, in the confines of a space like a yoga studio or treatment center, or in the daily arenas of your life. Dancing mindfulness honors the invitation to “come as you are.” Classes range from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the venue and purpose for the class, and various forms of music are incorporated to create a welcoming, integrated container.
In a typical Dancing Mindfulness class, participants will be able to realize the rhythmic qualities of their breathing and heartbeats; to discover the healing, lyrical properties in even the most simple movements; and quite literally, to be able to express their own, personal story through dance.
Many practitioners of dancing mindfulness also experience a deepened connection to other outlets of creativity through their practice, including, but not limited to writing, music making, art making, and photography. If you are the kind of person who likes to dance like nobody's watching, or at least would like to try, the dancing mindfulness experience is for you!
In this 75 minute class, we will connect with our breath, body and spirit by using the power of music and movement.
