Dance is born out of yoga and is an extension of it, as it goes beyond static postures, incorporating graceful and rhythmic movements. It incorporates traditional Asanas (yoga postures), Pranayams (controlled breathing), Mudras (gestured expressions) and Laya (rhythm). Dance begins with the belief that it is not enough to move just to strengthen the muscles but it is the art of moving, through mindful and conscious, breath focused movements which provides a holistic experience…
Benefits: Through dance, the dancer gets to understand and express the intimate connections between the physical, mental and emotional being, as single minded contemplation is acquired with continuous series of action – feet keeping to the rhythm, hands expressing gestures, eyes coordinating with the hands and ears listening to the music – all in spontaneous coordination. This brings about natural harmony which is meditative, energizing and exhilarating in a way no other exercise form can.

How essential oil works as a catalyst for the body? It stimulates secretion of antibodies, neuro transmitters, endorphins, hormones and enzymes. It is a very efficient delivery agent, easily transporting nutrients and information through the cell wall to the cell nucleus. It increases uptake of oxygen and ATP. Essential oils have the capability to bond with many nutrients. They work as a catalyst and delivery system to encourage blood cells to accept nutrients to carry and deliver more oxygen. They assist in the effective disposal of toxic waste and are the highest known source of anti-oxidants.
