Feel, Flow + Chill: Ecstatic Dance & Yoga Nidra with Chelsea Gockel
Sunday, April 16th, 2023 from 3pm-5pm
@ The Estuary in Old Saybrook, CT, 220 Main St, Old Saybrook, CT 06475
(downstairs in the dance studio)
When was the last time you allowed yourself to MOVE with absolute freedom, without concern of how you look to others, without any rules or plan for how you should move, but just letting your intuition guide your movement? When was the last time you felt fully alive?
Ecstatic dance is a practice where you move in total freedom, you let your inner wisdom guide your movements as you feel, flow, and groove to the music. This is a space where there is no right or wrong way to move, the main guide is your own intuition, your internal pulse, it is non-performative, individual practice, in a group of like minded people moving all to their own beat.
Free your body, free your mind, feel freedom in your life when you let go, and let your body flow.
You do not need to be dancer or even know how to dance to join, all are encouraged to try this out! No rhythm required!
We will wind down with a guided relaxation practice called Yoga Nidra practice (Enlightened Sleep). This is traditionally done by laying down on the ground, but can also be done sitting in a chair if unable to lie down.
This event is for all ages, all races, all bodies, and all abilities. Come as you ARE!
