an Azul class w/Karen Holmes

Awakening classes offer an entry into the Azul Spiral as we explore the orientations of listening, opening, allowing and moving toward. Movement that delves into our core embodies the flow of life within. The spaciousness of our dance sets the pattern of expression, release and surrender. Our Awakening class will uplift you! 

Azul follows a spiral path of Awakening of the Heart. We begin in a circle where an element of the Azul Spiral is introduced. We then have a short walking meditation, move into a guided dance practice with a short break in the middle, and end with a closing circle. This class focuses on opening to others and softening the heart—a pulling back of the curtain that conceals the soul. 

7:00 – 8:30 pm on alternating Thursdays: Jan 10 & 24, Feb 7 & 21, Mar 14 & 28, Apr 11 & 25, May 9 & 23
