This dance is a love letter to Ukraine. It is offered ‘back to source’ as a heart-gift for the extraordinary courage of the Ukrainian People. As I dance with my Shakti Sisterhood around the world, we hope you join us, energetically, in song and dance! Our vision is a prayer joining the world to lift, support, and protect Ukraine. I am but one, our offer small, but as you join, WE become a vast army of spirit-warriors who together, surround Ukraine in power-filled light, hope & love. I hope you practice this Shakti Yoga Dance to be ready when we send a link for an appointed day and hour so EVERYONE can dance and cry and raise the vibration of light everywhere. I think John would approve, don’t you? (Notify samcatcam@gmail you wish the link. Stay tuned!)

Learn to play with energy. Change your point of view through connecting subtle body layers. Synthesize body-mind connections, expanding your consciousness. Shakti Yoga Dances enrich your nature, transforming the mundane to mystical, logical to intuitive, and chaotic to peaceful.

The art of Shakti Yoga Dances is the art of healing body and sorrow. The unique sequencing, the practice of muscle and bone growing resilient and powerful, the musical invitations calling imagination to soar as breath connects ever deeper into movement, demand new life to flow ~ changing who we once were. What we learn to heal within, we then offer another, until the world is dancing and singing.

The art of manipulating asanas into dance sequences is the art of becoming a story-teller. Choreographically, we reveal ourselves in fresh, new forms, growing intuition, creativity and joy. The dances move through us, layered in sound, breath, shape, and emotion, and in this rich layering we see life more as a poem than an email; more as a tapestry than a dishcloth.

The dance on the mat is the discovery of the dancer within, and as that dancer, YOU are charged by inspirational fires imbued in the movement. Ancient Tantric practitioners knew that body and emotion regenerate and heal with dance. They used its power to call in the divine. We long for tribal joining and shared ritual. We yearn to feel light-filled and passionate. Join Shakti Yoga Dances as she weaves her magic in rituals feeding body, mind, spirit, and emotion.
