If you are new to Ecstatic Dance, please come in time as we will go through the principles in the opening circle.
Dive deep in this yoga class with the focus on internal perception and experience. Soft meditative movement and breath exercises to open up the body, and delicious ambient realms to nourish the soul. Bring your yoga mat with you.
