Saturday, November 10, 2018
12pm - 2pm

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)
Yoga for Dancers and Movers (ED:Align) is an amalgam of Daniel’s self practice that has been essential for preparation of dance performances, competitions, physical theatre and maintaining a sense of centeredness, vitality and preparedness for moving in the world. This creatively curated style of yoga works with meridian lines and energetic centres in the body to bring harmony, balance, alignment and vitality to the body/mind complex.

Whether one is a professional dancer, movement expert, or wishing to bring more knowledge of the body and its energetic systems into their asana practice, this special workshop is open to all levels and backgrounds.
