“Is it Yoga or is it Dance? It’s an energetic combo of the two.” Women’s Health Magazine, 2010

We have developed a creative, uplifting approach to Yoga, Meditation and Dance. Build strength and tone, increase energy and flexibility, have fun as you develop your creativity! You are guided every step of the way through our improvisation work and artistic exploration. No previous dance or yoga experience is required as you take your yoga into the performing arts.

Yogadance explores our being and tells a story through music and movement. It follows yoga principles and technique, yet takes creative license to explore the boundless possibilities of yoga practices in performance as a means for joyful expression and self-discovery.

“I wish to live a life that causes my soul to dance within my body” Dele Olanubi

Something wonderful begins to happen as your body-mind comes into balance and you align yourself with your inner light. In my case, my soul loves to dance, explore and be present within the creative potential each moment offers. The tone is loving, truthful, accepting, curious and playful! What does it mean to be a spiritual being within a human body living with mother earth and each other? What ups and downs do we experience, what’s our emotional range? What are our choices?

Together we weave stories and realise they are stories – we all have stories, our bodies, minds and hearts have stories. We explore them with music, poetry, art, visualisation, dialogue, movement, reflect in stillness and know they are all journeys flowing on this river of life travelling to the sea. We learn and know that stories happen as we breathe and we can choose nurture them, be discerning with them, distill their wisdom and when it’s time – let them go.

“The source makes the rivers flow. They tire not, nor do they cease from flowing. May the river of my life flow into the sea of love that is all” Rig Veda

In these sessions, we bring our bodies into balance through yoga, meditation and creative expression techniques. We also share and witness the creative process as a way of being fully present in each moment. The music genres we move to are varied depending on what qualities we wish to explore and embody. We may listen to and move to classical, jazz, world, pop music…as we continue to develop this art-form together.

If there is a tug within your heart that says you might like to be a part of this, get in touch! The Vision for Yogadance Company is to nurture a group of yogi-dancers who find joy in this creative journey and life.

Join us on Wednesdays 7:00PM-8:00PM at “Balanchine Studio” within Studio Tibor Adult Ballet Studio in Greenwich.
