The yoga of dance

Shakti Dance is the ‘yoga of dance’ – developed by Sara Avtar. It’s a conscious practise of dance, infused with the wisdom of yoga to develop awareness and understanding of body, mind and emotions.

Shakti means power, force, the feminine energy, for she is the energizing force of all divinity, of every being and everything. The whole universe is the manifestation of Shakti. Shakti from Sanskrit shak – “to be able,” meaning sacred force or empowerment, is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe.
