Module Overview

We are all born knowing how to dance; this inherent movement is well documented as one of the oldest planetary yogas. Evolving since 1994, Yoga Trance Dance is a contemporary exploration of the spirit of dance within yoga.
Beginning with sahaja prana vinyasa or the experience of prana initiating yogasanas in a spontaneous, natural flow, yoga trance dance unfolds into an exploration of free-form, breath driven movement to liberate one’s creative life force and cultivate embodied freedom.

  • Global overview of the power of free-form movement in human history
  • Exploration of cross-cultural trance roots and movement meditation
  • Dancing universe – Cosmology of Nataraj within Yoga
  • Roots of sahaja flow within yoga and dancing mystics throughout history
  • The power of invocation and sound – five opening invocations and mantra
  • Leading sahaja flow for every body – essential 12 offering movements
  • Devotion in motion – Prana Flow Namaskars for Yoga Trance Dance
  • Sahaja Prana Vinyasa™ – pathways for integrating sahaja flow into vinyasa forms
  • Guiding elemental movement from the earth to space
  • Guiding kriyas and free-form ecstatic dance
  • Leading the power of collective movement
  • The nature of movement – yoga trance dance outdoors
  • Creating the musical wave of Yoga Trance Dance
  • Invoking and weaving the poetic language of the body
