Chakradance blends free-flowing movements with particular frequencies of sound to resonate with the vibrations of each of our 7 major chakras. And my commitment to myself this year is to lead chakradance events and share the practice with other people.
(If you’d like to be on the list to learn about my first event later this year, just drop me a line.)
I was first introduced to chakradance by my friend and used-to-be neighbor Stacy Guglielmi in July of last year. She leads a weekly chakradance class in Santa Monica and invited me to attend a class. I felt incredibly connected to the entire experience and decided to explore other disciplines of dance in a similar vein.
I attended a 5Rhythms class which is similar to chakradance in that it’s a dynamic movement practice where people come together to free form dance, but for me I felt more connected with the chakradance experience.
Dancing has always been a way for me to connect into my body and sensuality. It’s one of my favorite things to do and a big reason why I loved attending Burning Man. However, until my first chakradance class, dancing had always been something that happened at night usually while drinking or celebrating.
My first chakradance class in July last year opened me up to the realization that dance can be about going inward. It can be a healing and meditative practice, not just something to do for entertainment.
The movement of energy through my physical and energetic bodies and the connectedness I feel to my aura and intuition after a chakradance session is wildly powerful. And this is exactly why I want to introduce this type of dance to other people.
So I started a Chakradance Facilitator course this weekend. It’s taught by the founder of Chakradance, Natalie Southgate, and runs for approximately 12 weeks.
I’ll be posting about the course here and on Instagram @mokshadestiny — hope you’ll follow along and if you’d like to be on the list to learn about my first event later this year, just drop me a note here and I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.
Wish me luck!
