Ecstatic dance is a style of free form dance in which the music is the teacher. In this form of dance, there is no structure or steps to follow or any particular way to dance.
Ecstatic dance events are differentiated by being a talk free space. The crowd tunes in together before the class and end together in a circle.
Yoga in the flow of eternity
Co creation Yoga, Poetry & live Harp music
We welcome you to a yoga class that takes you to that place where everything is eternal and everything has a context. Everything is one and you are part of it! The techniques of Yoga will help us finding our stability and inner strength with such a presence that we then can expand from there. We find our roots and from there we flow through our chakras in a soft and present flow, we expand and create space for everything we are longing for!
The class ends in a deep meditative rest where we’ll listen to a special version of the performance The Prophet with magic wisdom words written by Kahlil Gibran, sweet songs and twangs of harp music.
”Dance your yoga from inner stillness to exploratory movement and let your movement be your meditation and liberation”
Freemove Yoga is based on the idea that your body knows exactly what it needs and what it best for it if you are given the chance to listen, feel and explore in a safe and secure context. We focus on being in the presence when we flow and explore through our free movement, yoga asanas, dynamic meditation and dance and we do all this to awesome music played by live dj. You will experience the feeling of freedom in different ways and you are safely guided through all feeds. The purpose is to raise your inner potential and increase your body awareness which together gives you a stronger sense of self, power and insight into who you are and what you want and get you more present in the moment.
