You are invited to a spirit soul dance yoga night at Guan Yin Tea House November 18th 6pm-9pm, $10 cover. Start with a community yoga practice and then enjoy an estatic dance party with tea service compliments of Guan Yin Tea House. Excited to see you all there! 👌
Please bring a yoga mat if you would like to participate in the yoga practice at the beginning. Yoga practice will be taught to all levels but mostly beginners so is accessible by everyone. Suggested to wear yoga clothing or something you feel comfortable moving freely in. An area will be provided for shoes to be left by the door.
What does it mean to dance estatically? Come experience the escalations of estatic dance expression: allowing the the body to move in a way that commands the universe to listen. To listen to what? To listen to your inner you-niverse! To listen to your own unique estatic expression of what it means to be a human being! Let your freak flag fly! Or shelter yourself in the gentle cocoon of free flow dance of your own creation. Or sit on your cushion and allow the music to gentley permeate your being and allow you to experience the feeling of being alive! This is what estatic dance means to me. What does it mean to you? Come to find out. :)
This is a sober event. Come and let your soul get drunk on music!
Estatic dance is a talk-free zone. We have conversations with our body language, eye contact, guestures, contact improv, and when soul meets soul. In partner dance, if you are ready to end the dance with your partner, simply acknowlege your partner with a Namaste: clasp your hands together in a prayer position at your heart. Namaste means «The light in me sees the light in you.» It is both a greeting, an acknowledgement of gratitude, and a goodbye. These techniques and more will be discussed at the event. Estatic dance is a one-of-a-kind experience. Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!
