Indian Therapeutic & Healing Dance

Indian Therapeutic & Healing Dance

A form of therapy involving body awareness and energy flow, this class joins exercise and dance to make them less intimidating and more approachable. Think of it as meditative movement or a mindful dance, where every movement is intentional and every result varies based on the effort of the individual.

Indian Therapeutic & Healing Dance is great for participants of all levels and can help reduce stress through ‘tuning inwards’ and finding moments of bliss within the dance flow. This technique allows individuals from all walks of life to develop and enjoy their own practice.

Beyond the physical and emotional benefits, there’s a sense of creativity too. By adding personal style and flair to the choreographed dance movements, individuals are encouraged to step outside the norm of dance in society and to extend their diversity into the wonderful world of dance!
