DANCE AS YOGA – Private Study RetreatsImmersions in Indian classical dance as an integrated physical, mental and spiritual practice
Dancers and yoga practitioners with different levels of training, wishing to explore odissi movement as a means of self-discovery and self-expression, are always welcome at Skandavan.
Self-designed study for individuals or small groups is available through different periods of the year. We discuss your requirements and mutually workable dates.
Tools are introduced for linking classical odissi postures, gestures and mudras with tantric precepts. Teaching includes meditation on the nature of sensation and self-enquiry..
This approach has proved to be beneficial in letting go of deep-seated habitual tensions, as well as discovering ownership and self-expression, in Indian classical dance.
Reference materials are available for further private exploration
