Born in South America, Biodanza makes it easy and enjoyable to let go of the stress and busyness of the day and to move, feel, play and ‘come back to yourself’. Biodanza grew out of an appreciation for how dancing in community can fundamentally and profoundly contribute to individual and community health, wellbeing and life meaning. Grounded in the human sciences of biology, psychology, human movement and physiology as well as the arts, Biodanza is established in over 50 countries with around 3,000 facilitators worldwide.
Compelling research on the effects of Biodanza have been published in scientific journals which point to its positive effect on wellbeing and health indicators including reductions in the effects of chronic stress, increases in feelings of optimism and wellbeing and improvements in immune system strength. It is great for your mind-body-heart health and is done to inspiring music from around the world. There are no steps to learn, nothing to get right; just a progressive series of movements to cultivate positive states of body, heart and mind. Each week is a reset away from stress towards joy, contentment, health, freedom, satisfying relationships and enjoyment of life.
After the free class we will run an 8 week course of Biodanza – Vital Impetus!
What to expect at Biodanza sessions:
- Music, dance and movement that free up your life force and energise your intentions
- Enlivening of your vital energy and your natural flow
- Inspiration and experimentation with new forms of free & guided movement
- Uplifting connection with other people
- You don’t need any specific dance or other experience
- We invite you to dance barefoot if that is possible for you
