Spring Equinox Ecstatic Dance
Embodied Movement as Medicine
- 30 Canadian dollars$30
- Nirmāṇa ॐ School of Yoga
You are warmly invited to our communal Spring Equinox Ecstatic Dance featuring DJ Willow. The vision for this event is to bring like-hearted community together in shared celebration, authentic connection, embodied joy and intention-setting for the blossoming Spring season to come. Ecstatic dance is an intentional form of free-movement dance, which creates a safe, accepting and judgement-free space for everyone to move and express in whatever form feels most authentic. The intention is to hold all ways of movement with total acceptance to allow for a deeply freeing, joyful and even healing embodiment experience. To guide our embodiment of ecstatic movement, DJ Willow will curate a “5-rhythms” music journey, which follows a momentum-building arch and creates a trance-like dance experience. This will also be amplified by a short pre-dance kundalini breathwork activation, kirtan chanting and shaking meditation. Note: for those who may want a break from dancing, there will be a chill-zone for socializing and enjoying potluck food. This is a sober event that invites us into a fully aware and conscious state of expression: no booze, no shoes, no judgement ~ just dance. All our welcome to join in community connection as we shake off the hibernation of Winter and begin to wake up our beautiful bodies, minds and spirits to welcome in new seeds of fresh beginnings.
