MovingEnergy is a Free Style dance class... move from the inside out; free the body, inspire your soul, and express the freedom within your body: Move Your Body, Feel Your Energy, Let Your Spirit Soar

 

What is MovingEnergy? Increase your energy and body dynamics with a MovingEnergy class.  This unique holistic movement class expands the boundaries of yoga with the dynamic qualities of dance. This type of movement integrates your three energy centers: body, mind, and spirit for increased vitality, mobility, and longevity.

 

MovingEnergy brings more fun into your life and into your workout by integrating many techniques such as yoga, improvisation, creative movement, breathing, music, and play into a dynamic experience of self-expression. 

The class is designed to discover, create, and build energy throughout the body using structured sequences of natural movement patterns to integrate, open and energize the seven energy centers of the body, known as chakras. Set to invigorating and pulsating rhythms, sounds of world beat, dance and sacred music, this class allows you to feel the flow; sometimes, smooth and tranquil and sometimes dynamic and strong.

 

Why MovingEnergy? MovingEnergy is a form of movement in which participants move from the inside out and outside in to tap into their inner and outer vibrations inspired by the music and the energy within the body. The movements and music help to create the right environment for self-discovery and self-mastery to move using one’s self-expression and feelings of empowerment.

The inspiration for movement comes from both conscious and unconscious awareness of what and how the body is moving; its about using whatever comes from within. There is no judgment, expectations, and/or right or wrong. The “rightness” of what is created lies with the mover thus, no previous dance experience is necessary. Each participant experiences MovingEnergy in their own way that feels good and honors their being.

 

What Can I Expect From MovingEnergy? If you can remember what is it to be free, to release all concerns about being right or wrong or finding someone else’s comfort in your body then this is the class for you.

The class environment provides an open and safe space to move, release stress, relax, stretch, tone, breath, and condition the body all at the same time.  MovingEnergy includes a warm-up segment, a guided free-style rhythm movement segment set to inspiring music, and a guided relaxation segment to cool the body.

 

Classes begin with getting in touch with your body with lots of energizing breathing and progresses to full body movements of all parts of the body using easy, natural movements that are low impact dancing to all kinds of fun and energizing music.

Participants experience a greater freedom of expression will still gaining the benefits of total body conditioning (strength, cardio, and flexibility) and leave the class feeling invigorated and energized allover.

YogaBeing is about being present... with the body, mind, and soul for an integrative experience that you can get in no other fitness program. Yoga' is a Sanskrit word meaning union or to join.  One yoga path is HATHA YOGA, which is union by bodily control or the physical practice of yoga.  In yoga, we practice asanas (bodily control) and pranayama (breath control).  The purpose is to link the intentional movement of the body to the intentional movement of the breath.  There are many different styles or forms of Hatha Yoga and all DanceFit yoga classes are a form of Hatha Yoga.
