Join Johanna in her annual Holiday Lights Candle Dance exploration, all levels welcome!
We honor this time of festivals and holidays, bringing in the sparkling lights to signify our connection with all that is good and healing. Used in spiritual traditions around the world, candles are used to worship, invoke and inspire. Come join us as we dance with joy and hope, feeling lightness in our spirit and grace in our bodies as we move through space with twinkling flames!
We call in traditions from yoga, such as the Dance of Shiva, to guide our movement in the magical path of the infinity sign. Call in the divine of your choosing, celebrate the holiday of any tradition or of none. Each class will be a holiday ritual experience to honor the changing of the seasons and the year. Create your own devoted movement ritual as we use our bodies to to celebrate the wonder of just - being - ourselves! Our last class is just before the Winter Solstice - we will bring light to the darkest time of year in a special celebration.
Balance, coordination, flexbility, improvisation solo and as a group, we will move with intention, power, and beauty through space and time. Moving slowly is often more challenging than moving fast, so we will take time for some deep stretches and breathing to settle into mindful movement. Class will include a short time for meditation to integrate our experience.
Wear what inspires you! ...something comfortable to move in, flowy skirts and costumes are welcome (wear pants underneath so we can stretch without worry). The color themes are blue and white, or, any color that you feel appropriate for your pracice. Bring blue and white ribbons for your wrists (about 3 feet long), and two electric tealights (no active flames please).
