LAST CLASS - ECSTATIC DANCE CLASS
☆ Start your 2019 a fresh with a New Beginning: Ecstatic Dance Class program @ The Consciousness School ☆
Do you love Ecstatic Dance?
Do you want to get more out of your creativity?
Do you wish to use your body's full potential to express your true Self?
This 1.5 hour Ecstatic Dance Class helps us expand our range of motion, dance vocabulary, creativity, and connection to ourselves and others. From a centered an grounded space we are led into a guided dance meditation where we sink deeper into our body. Using meditation, breathwork, dance and partner work as tools to sense, center and be present with ourselves and others.
The experience of creating and opening different possibilities of movement and connecting is inherent to your thinking and imagination. All with a deepened sense of rhythm in synchronicity with each other. We start and end the class with a sacred ritual.
EACH CLASS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
★ Opening meditation: meditation to strengthen concentration, ground and deepen awareness of the group. The meditation will be designed according to the energy of the whole group and the place. It is one of the most important parts of the class.
★ Warming Up: Preparing your body through various warm-up exercises such as yoga, dance, stepping, or dynamic stretching
★ Exercises: Physical exercises designed to increase your body awareness and dance vocabulary. Partnering up with or without touch.
★ Ecstatic Dance with music: Safe space where you can pass through a meditative state, experiment with movement, to dance with another, express and play. The music takes you on a journey.
★ Closing circle: Sacred ritual to ground the experiences and tune in our daily life.
Exercises may vary according to the group dynamics, boundaries, skill and abilities or dancers.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS:
XENA GI: Xena combines her studies in neuropsychology, mindfulness, shakti tantra and bodywork with her passion for art and expression. Xena draws her inspiration from dances like Sufi Whirling, Brazilian Zouk, Contact Improvisation, African Dance and Tango. Through dance she inspires others to discover, heal and express themselves. She sets in her own intuition to break through emotional and psychological blockages, to find a personal essence that unlocks a unique and dynamic beauty in her life and that of others.
MUSTAFA KOCER: Mustafa started his dance journey 10 years ago in ballroom and latin, but later found an emotional richness in contact improvisation & zouk that matched his personality. Moving from an 'outside-in' to an 'inside-out' perspective, he felt a radical change in his or her way of connecting with himself and others in both dance and life. He is on a continuous journey or self-development both in the corporate, conscious and dance world. Now he loves spreading his passion and helps to strengthen their own connection through breathwork and partner dancing.
