Heal yourself through movement and meditation. Dance Meditation is a transformative 75-minute journey that fuses dance and meditation to awaken your true self. Drawing inspiration from Hatha and Tantra Yoga philosophies, the practice invites you into a dynamic exploration of body, mind, and spirit through movement, breath and meditation. But unlike asanas in yoga, Dance Meditation allows more freedom. It revitalizes dormant energy, frees internal struggles, and emotions held captive within the body. That allows each student to find their own path to pursue harmony.

The practice works on the subtle bodies, giving space for inner strength, tranquility, and joy through guided dance improvisation and holistic practices. Each session ends with a 15-minute meditation or Nidra, deepening your self-connection. To conclude: Dance your truth. Meditate your essence. 

People with no experience in dance, yoga or meditation are welcome.

Each class is different and works on one specific topic (grounding, chakra, emotion etc.).

There is music in the background. It might be tranquil or more dynamic.

The teacher offers gentle verbal instructions, and demonstrations, creating an atmosphere of self-exploration rather than obligation.

There’s no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to move – every motion is a step toward healing. Studio space is a sanctuary, free of judgment, dedicated to safety.

Occasionally, you can encounter partner or group practices, voice exercises, writing tasks, jumping.

People with disabilities are welcome to join and dance within their own limitations. 

Engaging with energy varies – some find it easy, others challenging. If something doesn’t resonate with you, gracefully set your boundary.

Throughout the journey, students are allowed to pause – for water, rest, or personal needs. 

In the studio we all share the responsibility to co-create a safe environment leading to harmony and freedom.

Students might use pillows or yoga mats for the final meditation/Nidra. There are few mats in the studio but you are invited to bring your own for more hygiene and comfort.
