The practice of yoga dance has led to creative embodiment of yoga and a means to explore one’s deeper reserves. Unlocking the artistic talents, the rhythmic movement of the body results in multiple benefits, including the release of chained emotions, stress & anxiety.

The led class allows the students to not just focus on one modality, but mix the two to create harmony and joy while he/she is in the class. The body postures allow the practitioner to enjoy the benefits of the asanas whereas use of pranayama or specific breathing techniques invokes a cohesive connection between the body, mind and soul. Many a times the class enfolds spontaneously allowing the practitioner to experience a state of liberation and empowerment.

The energetic dance movements involve mudras, which activate the five elements: earth, fire, water, air and space. Based on the principles of balancing the five elements of the body to bring balance in one’s life, this practice preaches multiple ways to bring harmony in no time.

Using the dance and yoga as a form of entertainment as well as transformation, different classes have different themes, which makes it possible for the dancer aka practitioner to surrender all of his/her fears to the Mother Earth and acknowledge the presence of divine energy in every fractal he/she witnesses.

Yoga Dance and its Benefits

It brings a sense of balance in the practitioner’s body as the rhythmic movements are vigorous and with so much force, it becomes necessary that the practitioner exercises caution while they enjoying moving in yogic postures.

Our body stores unreleased emotions in different parts, which makes them tighter and, sometimes even immobile. With the help of yoga dance, a great range of flexibility can be achieved in one’s body and all the trapped emotions can be released, which will make the practitioner a calmer and a happier person.

It also instills self-confidence and clarity of mind as the movements clear all the blocked energy in the practitioner’s space.

A process of detoxification, yoga dance balances the chakras and removes all the blockages or negativity stuck in the energy wheels. Practitioners enjoy healthier auras and radiate joy along with being more at ease within their own body.

It is also a part of meditation where the students are moving into the meditative state. Instead being a static or a still form of meditation, yoga dance opens innovative doors to the world of ‘dhayana’, where the practitioners experience increased intuitive levels, connection to the self and increased ability to concentrate.

The rigorous movements are great for physical wellness as they increase the lung capacity and, also enhance strength in the body while adding flexibility to hips and releasing any stress or tension from the body and mind.

With all these benefits, it becomes mandatory for every yoga lover to experience the richness of yoga dance.
