Embrace Yoga with rhythm of music and dance
Yoga and its healing power
Thus, Yoga leads to self-knowledge, making us increasingly skilled in dealing with life and living one day at a time with awareness, tranquility, and balance. Practice does not transform us into something we are not but reveals our true nature that is often hidden by the confusion and distortions of the mind.
Dance has been an ancestral art and expression of humanity since its beginnings. When we dance, we are not just doing something physical but also moving the whole story and emotions stored in our cells. We are letting all this content come to the surface through body movements.
Yoga Dance has its roots in Indian mythology where dance is sacred. When a god dance, everything that exists enters a continuous transformation process. In this tradition, every human being is considered divine in its essence, and dance provides the possibility to access the spiritual potential of the body. In addition to Indian culture, Yoga Dance has influences from tantra, Vedanta, shamanism, cultural dances, and spontaneous movement, thus uniting all ancestral wisdom with contemporary experience.
How are dance and yoga related?
You are probably wondering how dance and yoga could be mixed to create a yoga of dance. Well, this fusion is based on the movements, styles and rhythms of dance integrated with yogic tools such as breathing, focus, mudras and awareness of the energy centers in the body (known as chakras). The result is Shakti Dance or Yoga Dance.
Yoga Dance is defined as “a style of yoga that combines fluid movement with music in a yoga practice.” In it, yogis practice postures to the beat of the music, which can be as simple as drumming or traditional chanting (such as mantras).
As an emerging style, it has many ways to be practiced; instructors who take it for their daily practice do so based on their criteria, tastes, or class needs. Therefore, we can find various fusions—for example, fluid yoga with hints of artistic gymnastics.
Benefits of Yoga Dance
Yoga Dance is a discipline that merges both worlds to bring fluidity and naturalness to movement in search of a deep connection with our interior.
This type of yoga creates a creative, energetic, devotional and spiritual space that connects the practitioner both with their physical body and with the conception they have of it and the free expression of their own language, which makes it yoga that balances the body-mind-spirit to expand consciousness, increase the possibilities of body movement, and promote physical, mental and emotional health.
Yoga Dance includes everything from gentle stretching exercises to dynamic movements, free dance, relaxation and meditation, as well as choreography with mantras to reorganize energy not only individually but also in groups. Its benefits are multiple and very enriching: it invigorates all body systems, increases cardiovascular health, circulation and breathing, improves posture and coordination, increases flexibility and muscle tone, reduces stress and increases vitality, and also increases self-esteem.
