w/ Anastasia Blaisdell

APRIL 23rd



DanceMeditation is an innovative spiritual practice based in somatic movement and dance. It is a deep exploration of our inner landscape through learning receptive listening to our body and its wisdom. We develop a deeper connection with self, other, and higher power. As we turn towards awareness of breathing and motion, we drop out of the overactive and distracted mind into intuitive embodiment. 
Through a wide array of movement practices such as fluid yoga, somatic micro-movement explorations, partner/witness dance, writing from the body, and natural intuitive dance, where instead of moving, we sense we are being moved, we become integrated within. As all practices are set to a dynamic sonic landscape, we begin to move with freedom and creativity. We leave feeling inspired, alive, centered, healed, and with an inner feeling of freedom, peace, and deeper connection.

Please bring a yoga mat, a Mexican style/sized blanket, a pen, and a journal.

"I would have to say that this is the very best mind-body class I have ever taken. It took me beyond my expectations of myself so that I could see greater possibilities. Anastasia is not only a trusted and well prepared guide, she is also a great dancer, bringing a gentleness and gracefulness to the class that uplifted me. The simplicity of the instructions, coupled with their depth, allowed me to feel completely free to explore, express, and create in a comfortable environment free from the clutter of criticism. I cannot recommend this class strongly enough."

"Anastasia provided us with a clear and simple form in which we could experience the formless. Through music and movement I was able to go into the mystery of 'who am I'.  I am looking forward to the next time!"
