Odissi Indian Classical Dance 

Wednesdays 11 – 12:15  Contact me for location

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.

* 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.

There are requests for additional class times for both Odissi & Shakti Yoga™. Let me know what you want: Tuesdays 4:30, Weds 4:30, Thurs anytime. 2 Student minimum. So grab a friend and let’s start!
