CHAKRADANCE Classes & Workshops with Anne-Marie

"I soo love chakra dancing! It allows my body to access new rhythms and movements that I had no idea existed within me, giving me a freedom to discover and express a wealth of untapped aspects of myself that were previously hidden.  Dancing in this way is a constant surprise of delight, discovery, creativity and joy!"

"This journey of Chakra Dance was again a beautiful way of accessing my bodies messages and coming home to myself, however this time it felt more mystical and ancestral. Though it was shorter in duration with each chakra that we danced, it seemed to go deeper into my soul and I came out with clear insights and freedom in my body. I also found that the extra meditation at the beginning of the dance lulled me into a deeper state of trance and then the magic of the dance arose. I seemed to feel more joy this time, this may be where I was at, I am not sure. It also felt like all of my senses were heightened as I now recall one scene of entering our own temple, where I could see, smell, hear and taste the experience so vividly.I feel very grateful to have experienced all these journeys, however I feel that this one allowed me to go deeper very quickly. Of course a special thank you to Anne-Marie who creates such a sacred and beautiful space mixed with her magic and passion for dance. "

What is CHAKRADANCE?

CHAKRADANCE is a dance practice for body and soul. It’s a powerful experience that will free and energize you. It combines spontaneous dance, guided imagery and music to promote that wonderful state of calm vitality known as “wellbeing”. The music is the key, as it resonates deeply with each in turn of the seven major chakras – the energy centers that integrate and regulate our physical, mental and emotional energies. Many who have experienced it claim it has transformed their lives for the better; others, simply that they enjoyed it hugely.

 

How is it different from a belly-dancing or salsa class?

It’s not about steps or performance; you dance with your eyes closed in a darkened room. It’s more like a dynamic, moving meditation. It’s completely about freedom of expression; there is no right way to CHAKRADANCE as everyone has his or her own rhythm and movement. With its roots in Jungian psychology, CHAKRADANCE encourages people to dance for self-discovery and self-healing.

 

What's the main attraction of Chakradance?

The best thing about CHAKRADANCE is you don’t have to follow a set routine to feel the benefits; you just let the music move you. People from all ages (16 – 90) can participate. Some people are attracted by the fact that it’s a fun and energetic workout to great music. Other people say it leads to a spiritual awakening. Most people love it because it provides a haven away from their stressed everyday lives, and a rare opportunity to find true freedom of expression.

 

What makes someone want to be a CHAKRADANCE Facilitator?

Natalie Southgate developed in 1998 because she wanted to combine her work in Jungian psychology and chakra healing with her passion for dance and music. In my own case, I have found Chakradance to be extremely valuable in my own healing journey and wanted to share my passion with others.

 

What are the benefits (both physical and mental) of CHAKRADANCE?

The most obvious physical benefit is that it boosts your fitness. It’s a cardio workout that gets everything moving from your face to your feet. It really gets your heart pumping; releasing endorphins to make you feel great. For those who are looking for a more spiritual connection, each workshop is designed to work a different chakra. There are seven main chakras; these centres of energy may be under or over active. Balancing them leads to many benefits, including better relationships, improved confidence and self esteem, emotional health, enhanced creativity, and heightened inspiration and clarity.

But the biggest benefit of all is the absolute freedom to be yourself! 

 

So it can be seen as a tool to improve overall health and wellbeing? 

Yes, absolutely. CHAKRADANCE is unique because it’s a cross between dynamic meditation and dance. It requires you to participate physically, emotionally, intellectually AND spiritually. It is extremely therapeutic, although not in an analytical way. The key to its healing power is the experience itself. Not only is it a new physical activity, CHAKRADANCE truly integrates body and soul.

 

How would you describe the CHAKRADANCE experience?

CHAKRADANCE is almost like entering into a waking dream. Specifically selected and composed music, and tailored visualisations help you tap into your inner world. You close your eyes and surrender to the music. From here the process involves letting the movements emerge spontaneously. As the music’s vibrations affect you, you may see images in your mind’s-eye, recall memories or gain insights related to each chakra. You may also feel emotions or physical sensations.

 

Can the music really help balance a person’s chakras?

Each of the seven chakras vibrates at its own frequency. Music is able to balance the chakras by using the sound vibrations to tune each energy center. The music is modern dance music with specific musical tones that resonate with the chakras. Interwoven with the music are the pure tones of crystal bowls sourced from across the globe, that release a vibrational sound field that is an essential ingredient of each dance. CHAKRADANCE music has a lasting effect. The vibrations continue to pulse outward into our energy field long after the sounds have stopped playing. The more we experience these healing sounds, the greater and the more permanent the effect. When the music is combined with spontaneous dance, the healing effect is magnified.

 

How often would someone need to CHAKRADANCE to achieve the full benefits?

It’s possible to CHAKRADANCE for as little as 15 minutes a day to feel the benefits of Chakradance. Most people get hooked after their first time. We run a nine-week course of 90 minute workshops with each class focusing on a different chakra (as well as an introductory and integration class). We also run special three-hour workshops where you are guided through the dance of all 7 chakras in one session. The more regularly you do it the better. Each time you CHAKRADANCE the experience is quite different. You can even practice at home – there’s a CHAKRADANCE DVD and CDs and downloads of Chakradance music available through the website – www.chakradance.com
