Chakradance™

Chakradance 1What is CHAKRADANCE™?

CHAKRADANCE™ is a dance practice for body and soul. It’s a powerful experience that will free and energise you. It combines spontaneous dance, guided imagery and music to promote that wonderful state of calm vitality known as “well-being”.

The music is the key, as it resonates deeply with each in turn of the seven major chakras – the energy centres that integrate and regulate our physical, mental and emotional energies. Many who have experienced it claim it has transformed their lives for the better; others, simply that they enjoyed it hugely. 

What makes it more than your normal belly-dancing or salsa class?

It’s not about steps or performance; you do it with your eyes closed in a darkened room. It’s more like a dynamic, moving meditation. It’s completely about freedom of expression; there is no right way to CHAKRADANCE™ as everyone has his or her own rhythm and movement. With its roots in Jungian psychology, CHAKRADANCE™ encourages people to dance for self-discovery and self-healing.  

What do you feel is the main attraction?

The best thing about CHAKRADANCE™ is you don’t have to follow a set routine to feel the benefits; you just let the music take control. People from all ages (16 – 90) can participate. Some people are attracted by the fact that it’s a fun and energetic workout to great music. Other people say it leads to a spiritual awakening. Most people love it because it provides a haven away from their stressed and repressed everyday lives, and a rare opportunity to shed their inhibitions in a healthy and appropriate way. 

What are the benefits (both physical and mental) of CHAKRADANCE™?

The most obvious physical benefit is that it boosts your fitness. It’s a cardio workout that gets everything moving from your face to your feet. It really gets your heart pumping; releasing endorphins to make you feel great. For those who are looking for a more spiritual workout, each workshop is designed to work a different chakra. There are seven main chakras in total. These centres of energy may be under or over active. Balancing them leads to many benefits, including better relationships, improved confidence and self esteem, emotional health and more creativity, heightened inspiration and clarity. But the biggest benefit of all – which comes about by being released from your ordinary day and given a playground and a map to discover how you really feel – is the absolute freedom to be yourself.  

So it can be seen as a tool to improve overall health and wellbeing?

Yes, absolutely. CHAKRADANCE™ is unique because it’s a cross between dynamic meditation and dance. It requires you to participate physically, emotionally, intellectually AND spiritually. It is extremely therapeutic, although not in a rational or analytical way. The key to its healing power is the experience itself. Not only is it a new physical activity, CHAKRADANCE™ truly integrates body and soul.  

How would you describe the CHAKRADANCE™ experience?

CHAKRADANCE™ is almost like entering into a waking dream. Specifically selected music and tailored visualisations help you tap into your inner world. You close your eyes and surrender to the music. From here the process involves letting the movements emerge spontaneously. As the music’s vibrations affect you, you may see images in your mind’s-eye, recall memories or gain insights related to each chakra. You may also feel emotions or physical sensations.  

Can the music really help balance a person’s charkas?

Each of the seven chakras vibrates at its own frequency. Music is able to balance the chakras by using the sound vibrations to tune each energy centre. The music selected is modern dance music and world music with specific musical tones that resonate with the chakras. Interwoven with the music are the pure tones of crystal bowls sourced from across the globe, that release a vibrational sound field that is an essential ingredient of each dance. CHAKRADANCE™ music has a lasting effect. The vibrations continue to pulse outward into our energy field long after the sounds have stopped playing. The more we experience these healing sounds, the greater and the more permanent the effect. When the music is combined with spontaneous dance, the healing effect is magnified. 

How often would someone need to CHAKRADANCE™ for and for how long, to achieve the full benefits?

It’s possible to CHAKRADANCE™ for between one-three hours to achieve results. Most people get hooked after their first time. Our teachers run a nine-week course of two-hour weekly workshops that works on a different chakra each week. We also run special one-hour and three-hour workshops that are just as effective. The more regularly you do it the better. Each time you CHAKRADANCE™ the experience is quite different. You can even practice at home – there’s a CHAKRADANCE™ CD out now.
