CHAKRADANCE™ is a well-being movement practice. It uses spontaneous dance, to specific chakra-resonant music, for the purpose
of healing and re-tuning your whole energy system.
You can read all about it in Natalie Southgate's new book,
published by Hay House.
The purpose of Chakradance is simple, if ambitious: to help you to more fully embody your soul.
At the heart of Chakradance is the music. For all of us, the seven major chakras are the energetic gateways through which body,
mind and spirit come together, literally embodying the soul.
In Chakradance classes and courses, each of these seven chakras has its own unique body of wonderfully danceable music, resonating
to its own specific vibrational frequencies.
On one level, Chakradance can be experienced as a joyful affirmation of who you truly are. Using spontaneous dance, creativity
and your imagination, it leads to an awakening, a discovery of your true self.
But at a deeper level, Chakradance is also about healing and balance. By surrendering to the music of each chakra, we dance from
the inside out and find ourselves awakening and healing ancient hurts; expressing – often for the first time – long-blocked
emotions; and opening ourselves up to levels of spiritual connection higher than we ever thought possible.
This is what we mean when we describe Chakradance™ as “rhythm for your soul”.
Think of it as a 'dynamic moving meditation to music'... or as 'the musical sister of yoga' (without the set-piece poses or asanas).
There is no right or wrong way to move your body. It’s a journey of self-discovery. Each chakra is explored through specific music,
guided imagery and your own free, improvised dance, done in a candle-lit space with your eyes softly closed. This begins to
activate inner experiences.
It’s almost like entering into a waking dream. You may see images in your mind’s eye while you are dancing or gain insights. You
may also experience feelings, emotions or physical sensations. Most classes conclude with participants creating a personal
mandala artwork, to help 'anchor' their experience and for their own personal use in reflecting on the class in the following
Chakradance puts you in touch with the sacred within yourself. It helps you re-connect with your own soul, unique and beautiful.
Dancing the seven chakras is like dancing into seven different worlds, seven different facets of your whole self, each with
their own lessons, meanings and stories. As a practice, it helps you to feel more balanced, more joyful, and to radiate your
own true colors out into the world.
