Event Description

The Dance of Shiva and Shakti

Workshop on Yoga and Indian Dance

The traditional lore of India considers Shiva as the lord of dance, Nataraja  and the lord of yoga, Yogeshwara, whereas Shakti is considered the creative power and energy of Shiva, the mother of all beings, the one that protects life and destroys what threatens it. In Indian dance we encounter the qualities of Tandava (masculine,dynamic,energetic) and Lasya (female, beautiful, graceful). Tandava is the dance of Shiva as the father of the universe and Lasya, the dance of Shakti as the Great Mother of the World. These two qualities coexist and are expressed through the body and soul of the dancer.

We will talk about the lore of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti in India, their dance postures and the mudras from Indian dance. Our yoga practice, inspired by Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga, will be blended with postures of Shiva and Shakti and the mudras that accompany them.

Furthermore, basic technique of Indian dance Kathak and choreographies of devotional songs, dedicated to Shiva and Shakti will be taught. At the and of the seminar we will dance in an ancient theater, dedicating our dance to these archetypes.
