RHYTHMS of LIFE
is an exploration of intuitive movement and dance set to music
Tuning in to the rhythms of life is to tune in to how we feel in this moment, the season we find ourselves in, and our inner cycles. In this exploration of intuitive movement and dance we tune into our current rhythm and then take a medicine journey. With the music as our medicine we explore intuitive rhythmic movements – perhaps with no form, perhaps yogic asana (stretches), shakti bandhas (movements to unlock energy in the body), and repetitive trance movements. Then connecting with the elements in our body (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether) move together into a free dance meditation. Ending our practice with a deep relaxation and song to integrate our journey. When possible our practice is done outside in nature.
Rhythms of Life is an offering evolved through Sivani Mata's practice of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of love), her trainings in Shakti Dance with Sara Avtar and Yoga Trance Dance with Shiva Rea, her apprenticeship with inspirational yoga teacher Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and other life experiences.
