APRIL 19: WORKSHOP BY VRAJA SUNDARI
From the Inside out: the power of dance
Dance is the expression of the unspoken, the mystical aspects of humanity that cannot be communicated through words. Inner movement is streamed into space, giving expression to deep-seated desires, emotions, experiences and questions. It has the ability to express and transform difficult personal experiences into positive, inspirational movement whilst releasing blocked energy from the body. Thus not only inspiring others, this universal art form can physically alter the body and stimulate healing when done with the right mindset and conscious intentions.
Open to all levels
Healing, dance, mudras, emotions

Dance as a means to connect, transform and heal
In dance, we aim to connect on all levels; with the elements, our own body, other bodies, the surrounding energy, the music and the moment. To dance is to connect and as dance is a universal language it has the capacity to speak and communicate with everyone and anyone. It connects our inner world with the outer world, and it is in this connection where we find purpose and happiness. Yoga means ‘union’ or ‘to bind’ so when dance is approached as in yoga, we are literally uniting or binding all these diverse aspects with each other.
When the inner movement is harmful, in other words, when memories of pain, experiences of suffering and trauma are bottled up in the body, it creates illness and disconnection. By the use of dance, especially when using hand gestures and yoga techniques, we are able to transform negative experiences into powerful art, giving a voice and form to that which we cannot explain. This expression of vulnerability transforms into empowerment and simultaneously inspires others to do the same thus contributing to a stronger more courageous environment.
We will commence with a lecture about the purpose of dance and its connection with spiritual life and yoga. We will then explore several movements and exercises where we awaken our chi or prana and focus on the use of mudras, meaning hand gestures, combining healing movements with aesthetic movements. Mudras are also known to instantly connect with the heart chakra and can be practised at any time, in any situation, by any individual. Following this interactive section the participants will have the opportunity to ask questions or share what they experienced during the lecture and/or workshop.
