SpRiNg Let YOUR Yoga DANCE Session 411

Dear SpRiNg Circle,

I look forward to sharing the dance with you on Thursday, April 27 in the Outback (gym) at Marlboro Elementary School on Route 9.

Walk down the path through the playground to access the gym at the door under the overhang. (The door to access the restroom is opposite the gym building.)

Bring a mat (or mat substitute) and a water bottle, and dress comfortably to move. (Layers work well, especially in the gym which can run cool even on warm days. Socks feel good too.)

Dance barefoot (or with clean, non-marking soles.)

Arrive just before 5:30 pm to settle in before we open our time together.

We open the session with the New Moon–a perfect time for new beginnings, and seeding desires, and taking it slow. It’s an earthy moon too which lends itself to this week’s chakra focus: earth, feet, roots, groundedness. We’ll move through all 7 chakras at each gathering—but add deepened attention to a single chakra as we work our way from the 1st to the 7th (see schedule below.)

This first gathering comes just before Beltane–the ancient fertility festival–mid-way point between the Spring Equinox & Summer Solstice–a potent aperture for womanly magic & manifestation.

If you’re new to the dance, prepare to be put at ease by the warm circle, the gentle guidance and the moving music, as well as the chakra container fashion to soothe, engage and inspire you.

If you’re a returning dancer, thank you for the gift of your ongoing devotion to Let YOUR Yoga DANCE, and wish me luck as I shake off my winter hermitage and become a spinner of music & movement again.

Yours in the dance,
Kelly
April 2017

Note: The session rate is $123.45 come opening night. (If you’re a returning dancer, and haven’t made your payment yet, I’ll honor the pre-pay rate of $111.11.)

Reminder:  Dancers will receive access to the online Chakra Rewewal Journey following any missed gatherings.  (Online participants are welcome to attend a single dance of their choice.) Click here to find out more.

Dance Toward the Longest Night

Focus
“The connections between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic and the most potentially transforming on the planet.”
~ Adrienne Rich

The days are shrinking.
The nights are growing longer.
The time to cultivate the light is upon us.
Poetry. Laughter. Communion.
A resilient heart.
Silence. Prayer. Surrender.

It’s all there in the dance.

Each gathering is delicately crafted through the chakras to nourish body, mind & soul—within a wide-range of music, gently-guided movement & meditative play.

A dance party. An exercise class. A women’s gathering. A personal pilgrimage.
Find what you need. Help shape it with others.

This unique & alchemical practice (requiring absolutely no skill or experience) lends greater wellbeing & joy in your day to day, particularly as our days shorten.

Opening at the end of October when the dark of the moon is upon us
and continuing into December as the full moon lights our way to the Winter Solstice…

These 75+ minute gatherings for women are held in the community space
at Marlboro Elementary School on Route 9 in Marlboro VT.

Dance barefoot. Dress to move. Bring a mat (or mat substitute.)

Tuesdays 5:30 pm, October 25th through December 20th, 2016.

Dance into Winter with a community of WOMEN welcoming the Dark, the Light, and Everything in between.

Skill & experience soooooo not relevant. Letting go, relaxing, and being who you are–on any given night–most WELCOME. Gently-guided. Intuitively led. Divinely held. Irreverent. Sacred. Whole. (With a little CHAOS thrown in for good FUN.)
