“Within yoga, all of the different energies of the One- the god and goddesses- are depicted as dancing. The universe is viewed as the cosmic dance oh Shiva- Nataraja….”The intention of yoga Trance Dance is to bring greater fluidity, breath, range of motion, stamina for life, and embodied joy into our being and lives.” – Shiva Rea
As the great poet Rumi wrote:
“Dance when you are broken.
Dance if you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you are perfectly free.
Struck, the dancers hear a tambourine inside them.
As a wave turns to foam on its very top, begin.”
