Open Floor Movement

Human beings are born to move. With dance, we thrive – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Open Floor is a fun, transformative dance practice. It is a lively meditation practice that builds muscular and emotional intelligence. It is a dance floor discovery zone where we move and include: good days and tough ones, passion, hesitance, joy, sorrow, births, deaths and everything in between.

There are no steps to learn and no way to do it wrong.

5Rhythms Dance

5Rhythms Dance is a simple yet profound movement practice which encourages freedom and fluidity in our dance and in our lives.

You are invited to let your body move finding your unique dance guided by the 5Rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness.

Each rhythm offers us its gifts when we surrender to the dance. Sometimes we get to the magical space where our dance becomes a body prayer and we are no longer dancing but being danced.

No dance experience is needed – just a willingness to dive into your own unique dance.

Wild Wonder and Wisdom

a Women’s Open Floor Dance and nature retreat

This weekend we will let the transformative goodness of Open Floor dance, nature and togetherness at beautiful Mana retreat be a salve for the challenges of the past few years.

When we gather to share and move in our vulnerability and in our power we are following a long tradition of women giving and receiving the wisdom and the wonder of life.

We will be cultivating wonder as a nourishing practice that reconnects us with each other and our precious world, often bringing our hearts and souls into alignment with a greater ease and purpose.

Welcome women with a curiosity to move and explore!

Trust and Freedom, Dance and Yoga Retreat 2021

Trust and Freedom

Open Floor Dance and Yoga Retreat
with Sacha Paddy and Neal Ghoshal
We hope to have new dates soon for 2022
Mana Retreat, Coromandel
manaretreat.com (07 866 8972)

 

In this special weekend of Open Floor Dance and Yoga at stunning Mana Retreat, we’ll be finding the home of our trust, and how it gives rise to our freedom.

Using the guiding lights of our Yoga and Dance practices we learn to embody trust and freedom and the continuing dance between the two.

What do we trust? What gives a sense of inner knowing, that we can lean into and grow from? We’ll gather in all that may support us – body, breath, land, community, known and unknown.

From this foundation we cultivate our own sense of joy and freedom, offering us more choice to move towards inspired living. When we grow our ground of trust, it sets us free to be more fully who we are.

Open Floor is a fun, transformative dance practice.

All knowledge until it’s in the body, is still a rumour.

Human beings are born to move. With dance, we thrive – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Open Floor is a lively meditation practice that builds muscular and emotional intelligence. It is a dance floor discovery zone where we move and include:  good days and tough ones, passion, hesitance, joy, sorrow, births, deaths and everything in between.  There are no steps to learn and no way to do it wrong.

Our teachers mix stirring music with clear guidance to inspire wild dances and tender ones, connections between dancers and solo time.

Research shows that people who dance grow more flexible, confident, capable of intimacy, and nimble in the face of change. When we move together, we grow communities that care for each other on and off the dance floor.

The invitation is to come just as you are, and join others doing the same right alongside you.

Come join us on the Open Floor!

The Common Good

The ripple effect is inescapable. One dance can change someone’s day, one act of kindness can inspire a whole community.

Students often leave a session able to bring a more generous presence out into the world. We dedicate our work to the common good, to the benefit of all beings.
