Soul Movement Sanctuary ~ w/ Jovinna
A dance workshop inspired by Soul Motion™ Movement practice
Saturday Jan 15th 7:15pm – 9:30pm
 
Dance Theater Workshop in NYC
219 W 19th street(bet 7th & 8th Ave) 3rd Floor
 
I met Jovinna last year while she was teaching an improvisational Soul Movement Sanctuary Dance at Kripalu Yoga Center in Lenox, Massachusetts. Jovinna is a phenomenal dance facilitator! She gives such powerful, loving, gentle guidance that supports participants in finding their own deepest authentic dance. Being a facilitator myself, I noticed and loved the careful selection and timing of verbal cues she gave to help people find their own movement and flow! The music she played gave me a full body dance and eargasm! :-) Jovinna is currently taking the Soul Motion training with Vinn Marti! So many of these principles will be in the workshop! Soul Motion is huge on the West Coast! Jovinna will be traveling all the way from Massachusetts to facilitate this workshop; so take advantage of this rare, wonderful opportunity! :-) Info below-
 

Soul Movement Sanctuary Workshop
Dance is an intimate union of body, mind, heart, and soul. Each of us has a unique way of expressing the body’s beauty and creative energy. The expression of dance is the result of being present and absorbed in each moment. Soul Movement Sanctuary creates the space for the dancers to practice the art of paying attention as they navigate the inner landscape and the outer landscape. This is an awareness practice in motion.  Cultivate your presence as you move through solo, duet and community dance. This body of work is inspired by Vinn Marti’s Soul Motion and Kripalu Meditation-in-motion. There will be no choreography; this is an improvisational workshop all about you expressing your own authentic movement and flow. No dance experience needed.  Come ready to move!
 
Space is limited! Advance Registration is recommended!
Adv Register-  $30.
         Day of -  $40.
Prepayment is required by 11:45pm the night before the event

Sort of what I am doing now only with more credentials thus opening up more opportunities! :-)
 
Due to focusing on school I will be discontinuing the One Love Drum & Dance Circle and rarely facilitating dances myself! I hugely thank all of you who came to all the magical events we had last year. It was always so heart warming and wonderful to see you all share your dance, drumming and hearts so openly.
 
In 2011 The Dancing Path™ will be expanding and taking on a new direction!
