Nritya Yoga (Yoga of Dance), a course inspired by the movement, dance and yoga traditions of India! Yoga (Jyog, jo:g?) and Indian Sacred/Classical dance are inseparable. Both disciplines have common roots that date back to the ancient times. It is believed that the sacred scriptures were handed down to us through expression, postures, movement and rhythm of dance; a dynamic form of yoga!
The therapeautic advantages of Nritya Yoga are many. The eye movements invigorate the blood vessels behind the eyes, the mudras (hand gestures) touch upon many of the 4000 nerve endings on our finger tips which affect the nervous system. The feet positions touch upon the acupressure points affecting the nervous system. The postures bring structure and balance to the body, and work on the right and left brain functions simultaneously. The breathwork improves the flow of oxygen, and finally the powerful visualizations enable the practitioner to become one with the posture, become one with oneself. The sacred Nritya yoga postures and mudras (symbolic hand gestures), flow from one posture to another smoothly like dance. Nritya Yoga involves sacred dance, yoga and movement / dance therapy, and is designed both for women and men. No experience is necessary, one is encouraged to go at their own pace and level.
