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 centres 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.
What makes it more than your normal belly-dancing or salsa
It’s not about steps or performance; you can even dance with your eyes
closed. 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 do you feel is the main attraction?
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 use it as a fun workout to great music. Other people say it leads to a spiritual awakening and a stronger connection with inner guidance and the wisdom of the soul. 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 are the benefits (both physical and mental) of
The most obvious physical benefit is that it boosts your fitness.
It’s a workout that gets everything moving from your
face to your feet, releasing endorphins to make you feel great. Others may take it at a less energetic pace. For those who are looking for a more spiritual connection, each workshop is designed to
work on 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
So it can be seen as a tool to improve overall health and
Yes, absolutely. CHAKRADANCE is unique because it’s a cross
een 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
How would you describe the CHAKRADANCE experience?
CHAKRADANCE is almost like entering into a waking dream.
Specifically selected and composed music, and tailored
visualizations 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 do CHAKRADANCE for
to achieve the full benefits?
It’s possible to CHAKRADANCE for as little as 15 minutes a day
to feel the benefits of Chakradance. The more
regularly you do it the better. Most people get hooked
after their first time. Chakradance Facilitators run introductory classes as well as a nine-week course of 90 minute workshops to go deeper into the practice.
