Embodied Dance is a unique methodology created by Daniel "Sonic" Rojas from an accumulation of more than 25 years experience as a professional dancer and movement enthusiast, through intense self practice and a deepening journey of experiencing movement in a holistic way. Drawing from personal, channeled dance energy and inspiration from qi gong, martial arts, yoga, calisthenics, breakdance, active meditations and more, this experiential & intuitive art form brings together different forms of movement, musicality and emotions, as a means to inspire greater understanding of the human form through dance, rhythm and body awareness practices. Embodied Dance has many levels and sub styles, contributing to its rich, extensive and profound capacity as a unique movement methodology. Existing within the Embodied Dance curriculum are different substyles including:

  • ED:Fit Flow (mobility, strength, creative calisthenics, animalistic movements)
  • ED:Open (opening the body, preparing for performances, preventing injury)
  • ED:Ground (incorporating floor work into movement)
  • ED:Express (embodiment of emotion through movement)
  • ED:Align (creative and purposeful yoga sequences for dancers/movers)
Fit Flow, a substyle of Embodied Dance, is a specially formulated modality developed by Daniel "Sonic" Rojas from decades of personal practice that takes a holistic approach to creating strength, flexibility, mobility, coordination, balance and alignment in the body. This incredibly dynamic practice uses creative calisthenics, mobility training, animalistic movements and purposeful vinyasa to develop an intelligent form of conditioning for the body and mind.

Working from the inside out, Fit Flow focuses on building awareness of the often neglected muscles in the body that are responsible for keeping us fit, aligned and vital. Fit Flow is a complete physical conditioning training that works with progressive exercises, unique flows, and creative movements in order to move with confidence and totality. This modality will bring your vinyasa practice to an entirely different level!

What to expect:

  • Development of better communication with your own body
  • Coordination between the left and right sides, optimising balance and strength of both body and mind
  • Lengthening and strengthening of the body, like the most flexible and strong bamboo
  • Alignment of the body through internal awareness of symmetrical planes
