Yoga Trance Dance Teacher Training London

about this event

Join us for Yoga Trance Dance®️ Teacher Training at the Haptivate Center in London, UK! Learn to lead this internationally celebrated prana yoga and free-form movement meditation led by Ariana Bates. For yoga teachers and yoga adventurers who are interested in the interconnections of yoga and dance, this Trance Dance intensive provides the basic tools to explore the foundations of Yoga Trance Dance.

We are all born knowing how to dance; this inherent movement is well documented as one of the oldest planetary yogas. Evolving since 1994, Yoga Trance Dance®️, created by Shiva Rea, is a contemporary exploration of the spirit of dance within yoga. Beginning with sahaja prana vinyasa or the experience of prana initiating yoga asanas in a spontaneous, natural flow, yoga trance dance unfolds into an exploration of free-form, breath driven movement to liberate one’s creative life force and cultivate embodied freedom.

¥ Global overview of the power of free-form movement in human history

¥ Exploration of cross-cultural trance roots and movement meditation

¥ Dancing universe – Cosmology of Nataraj within Yoga

¥ Roots of sahaja flow within yoga and dancing mystics throughout history

¥ The power of invocation and sound – five opening invocations and mantra

¥ Guiding elemental movement from the earth to space
