Ecstatic Dance Newcastle - February

  • Yoga for All 39 Bolton St Newcastle NSW 2300 Australia (map)

Yogis, this Saturday we're really excited to be offering, by donation, Newcastle's first Ecstatic Dance Class! The facilitator, Valerie Graves, is a musician and Ecstatic Dance and Yoga teacher, as well as an experienced meditator. She has been enjoying Ecstatic Dance since 1998 and led dances in Austin, Texas for 7 years. And now she's bringing it to Newcastle! 

Ecstatic dance offers healing, expression and and a whole lot of fun. It is unique because there is no formal instruction, relying instead on the music to carry you. We create a space that people can step into, finding their dance, leaving behind the verbal world for 1 ½ hours to explore what their body needs today. Dancing in groups, pairs or single, there is space for everyone.

We hope you'll join us on Feb 1, 5:30 pm til 7:00 pm. Valerie has asked that you donate between $8 and $16 for the session...we'll be holding another class on March 1, 2014 if you can't make this one.
