Shakti Dance is the Yoga of Dance. It uses dance as a yogic tool to stimulate and balance the body’s energies (=Shakti, feminine power) and allows us to turn inward to observe ourselves consciously (Shiva, masculine consciousness). And it unites these two, female and male realities, so that we can discover our Inner Truth and just be who we are. To reach this Union, Shakti Dance offers us 8 phases that lead us through an experiental journey of Consciousness, Self-discovery, Bliss and Joy.
Shakti Dance is a way to connect to our Reality. It has its roots in the science and tradition of Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) and it was created by Sara Avtar Olivier. It also draws from many different dance styles looking at them yogically – finding out how different dance movements affect us and how we can use these to change our feelings, emotions, thought, consciousness, and even to establish new, healthier habits and make our lives happier and more fulfilled.
