Tune to the Pulse of Harmony: Express your Essence!
Liberate your Creative Potential & Embody Vibrant Spirit!
What is Shakti Dance®?
As a form of yoga, Shakti Dance® fuses breath, organic motion, sound and mindfulness, to align in harmony and merge with Source. Its flowing, rhythmic practice meditatively coordinates mind, body and spirit, returning us to the sacredness of our natural state. It tunes our body as an instrument to express our essence, with original creativity and authenticity.
How Shakti Dance® Works
The system of Shakti Dance® embodies the ‘Principles of Harmonious Movement’. Learning to move organically in waves and spirals, with relaxed aware flow, we attune to our inner cyclic harmony, igniting the ‘Spirit of Shakti’ and awakening our Creative Self. This harmonic flow of prana-shakti unravels our entanglement and illumines our shadows, releasing us into healing and awakening. We are led into a radiant state of relaxed Presence and heightened sensitivity, thereby opening us up to our core vibration and cascading into free dance – for the full expression of our potential. As we step into wholeness, we can harmonise and heal the world.

Shakti Dance® ~ Level 1 Teacher Training Program:
Shakti Dance® utilises the conscious practise of dance, infused with the wisdom of yoga to develop awareness of body, mind and feeling. When the body is massaged mindfully through breath and movement, dance becomes yoga. Releasing physical tension, the mind relaxes, expanding to transcendence and yogic union. This intuitive flowing ‘yoga of dance’ enhances prana, rejuvenates mind and body, while igniting Creative Spirit!
Practicing Shakti Dance® returns you to a pre-conditioned state of being, entering into pure creative flow. It is attuning to the power that creates and manifests – feeling the animating life force pulsing through the physical body – relaxing deeply, becoming present and alert to sensation. It is the ‘Ahhhhhh’ as the mind softens and you enter into stillness – the place where healing happens and inspiration is born.
In Shakti Dance®, the Yoga of Dance, Shakti and Shiva merge ~ the individual “drop” merges with the all-embracing “ocean of Being”.
