Everyone welcome to drop in class #1. Yet due to the nature of this discipline, no drop-ins after Sept 9. Moms, child care is available at Sekse.

There are requests for additional class times for both Odissi & Shakti Yoga™. Here are choices. Let me know if you want in. Tuesdays 4:30, Weds 4:30, Thursdays anytime.

We start from the very beginning and build each week. Each class includes exercises, both traditional Odissi + my personal dance favorites. Then “stepping” (Odissi a, b, c’s), mudras, eye-head-chest isolations, and a continuous stream of foundational teachings regarding Temple Dance, Yoginis, & Shakti (universal feminine creative energy).

Part 1:    Choka:  1, 2, 3’s of Odissi

Foundational Masculine / Shiva Postures

Define Choka = square, represents Jagannath, Orissa’s Universal Master Consciousness Diety

Shiva = Universal Masculine Principle = foundation, structure, stabilizing

Part 2:   Tribunghi: A, B, C’s of Odissi

Fluid Feminine / Shakti Postures

Tri= 3   Bunghi = bends

Shakti = Universal Feminine Creative Energy = sensual, wavelike, dynamic patterns

Part 3:   Union & Dance of Shakti & Shiva

This Odissi choreography combines Part 1 & 2 including ritual, devotional expression, Herstorical lineage celebration.

Part 4: Workshop: Integrate, Embody, Awaken ~ Date TBD

* Shakti Yoga® is the foundation for Odissi class. Highly recommended to attend when doing Odissi. Gives you advantage with Odissi’s physical, mental, and energetic demands.
