Let me share a little of my journey to Chakradance.
Five years ago I had just turned 40. I was a single, working mum, having navigated several difficult divorce years, I thought life was about to get good again.
Then I crashed, physically, emotionally, every which way. I was exhausted, depressed and physically suffering from all these mystery illnesses.
I was so tired I couldn’t wait for the kids to go to bed so I could lie down and rest. I even woke up tired.
It was a very frightening time and all I wanted was to get my ‘mojo’ back. At the time I was writing about wellness, the irony, I know! And in my research I discovered Chakradance.
I have always loved dancing, but I was more of a dancing by myself around the lounge room kind of girl than dancing in public.
Chakradance was perfect because we danced in a gently lit room with our eyes closed.
For me, it was an hour just to myself. The music was beautiful, I closed my eyes, let the music flow through me, listening to the gentle guided meditation and just moving my body however I liked.
Afterwards I always felt fabulous. I had more energy and I often felt that in the deeply relaxed space of the dance, I gained insights into my life and found that the answers to things that were bothering me came quite intuitively.
But what if I can’t dance…?
Chakradance is a gentle yet fun practice that meets you where you are. It doesn’t matter if you think you can’t dance, if you feel self-conscious about your body or if you have mobility issues. Chakradance is just about letting the music move your body and energy in whatever way feels right for you.
For me Chakradance restored my ‘mojo’ – that vitality and engagement in life. I feel so much more present in my life. It connects me to an experience of calm, clarity, healing, releasing, and balancing, that flows into all aspects of my life.
Chakradance is some time just for me – an hour of free-flowing dancing in a safe and softly-lit space with other like-minded women (and men).
