Life is the dancer and you are the dance.
EMBODi Dance is a creative experience allowing you to rediscover the delight of moving your own way, while using choreography to build healthy alignment of joints while simultaneously lengthening and strengthening your muscles.
A balance of form and freedom to extend your range.
Our posture and our movements have the power to transform our mental states, to release spontaneity and creativity, to reorganize our brains. New ways of moving and dancing may produce new ways of feeling and perceiving the world.
The sessions take you on a 'journey' inspiring your imagination whilst getting a great fitness workout.
How is EMBODi Dance unique?

Most people have no idea how good their body can feel !
This is the equivalent of an 'internal shower'.
As the spring freshness born of the heavy rains and vast masses of melting snows on mountains in the hinterlands cause rivers to swell and rush turbulently onward to the sea, so too will your blood flow with renewed vigour.
