This dance form requires a balance of body, mind and spirit.
The study of adavus (basic steps), margam (dances), sahitya (poetic text), devadasi history, hatha yoga (asana), hasta prana (mudras), tala and nattuvangam (rhythm) are all powerful ways to delightfully deepen not only your dance practice but other aspects of your life as well. These South Indian Temple Arts have a profound ability to focus and harmonize the mind and the best way to access what is right for you at this time and place in your life is in a private and semi-private class - all levels and ages are welcome.
*Private Hatha Yoga Session
Unfold your bodily practice into a moment of devotion and depth. We begin with a Sanskrit Invocation and then work with deliberate awareness and grounded intention through a sequence of asanas which is specifically designed to feel bodily alignment as a mandala of infinite grace. If desired, a home practice can be designed for you to cultivate at your own pace. Place your body on the shrine of this earth and become the flower of your offering.
"On with the dance, let the joy be unconfined!" -Mark Twain
