5-day workshop

SHAKTI is energy, in everything and everywhere.

Shakti Dance is a graceful yoga practice, breath-movement relation, that awakens subtle flows, loving, wild and subtle nature within us through conscious dance. Through dance, we liberate and embody our spirit. We allow our self to express ourselves as divine being. To Be is the key. This divine love of oneness is a legendary marriage of deities as old as time. It has always been a marriage between universal wisdom and pure energy, order and chaos, body and mind, spirit and soul.

This subtle union is our truth essence, a dance that brings peace, opens the heart to love, gives the power of awareness, understanding, clarity on the path that opens wings to our radiant essence.

“Don’t look for the date of this wedding, because it can happen at any time, for the happiest happens every day, because that’s where you really are You..”

Shakti Dance® is a Yoga of Dance, a form of conscious and dedicated dance in which different dance styles, movements and rhythms intermingle as a yogic tool supported by breath, focus and energy flow. It is an original methodical Yogic workout created by Sara Avtar Olivier of the UK. It consists of a combination of 8 phases that incorporate the implemented interior of Yogic Philosophy and Practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. It intertwines breath, movement and alertness, which expands our consciousness and blends us with our essence of Being through dance.

Shakti Dance’s systematic approach to exercise awakens and embodies the organic principles of harmonious movement, which creates the harmonious flow of Prana in our mind and body. Therefore, it can awaken the “Creative Shakti flow”, which gives a sense of freshness, awakening and fulfilment.

In Form, Shakti Dance® is harmonious flow of Asanas (Shakti flowing asanas), Rhythmic Breathing, Energetic Dance steps (short dance phrases in space), Free dance and dance improvisation, Relaxation, Meditation in movement to music (Celestial Communication & Mantric Choreography) and still Meditation. In Essence, Shakti Dance® is a practice that cultivates the free, organic and creative expression of our Being through dance. Gently massages, liberates body and mind blockages, releases stress – and opens us to a more audible, loving, calm and awakened flow of life.
