On Monday (see class information for more details) we will start outdoor yoga again. This year our classes will include learning Kanakadhara Dru Dance – Lotus in Full Bloom. The dance is inspired by an exploration of the power of giving and receiving. Kanakadhara is one of the names of Lakshmi – the goddess shakti or energy that represents the mother of all abundance – this form particularly expresses the ‘wealth’ that comes to us when we take responsibility for your lives. This wealth takes many forms – material, energetic, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wealth.
The full dance is approximately 6 minutes long and comprises of many traditional yoga postures linked by flowing movements. In class we will enjoy practicing the dance in small sequences rather than deliberately learning the dance for a performance. In this way it will introduce the class to new movements and the opportunity to work out both physically, energetically and emotionally. We will take time to work on individual postures before linking them into the dance. There will be an opportunity to learn more about the dance as we progress should you wish to do so. Each class will be planned carefully, ensuring everyone can participate, even if you have missed classes or just a beginner. Should students wish to perform the whole dance for a special class then we will plan to do so in September.
To be simply human is great wealth. To realise, express and live our potential, to give, receive and flow with life is a great wealth. Use this sequence to train yourself to perceive and experience this wealth. (Dru Dance)
