YogaDance from the Indian tradition - 17 April
Bharatha Natyam, one of the Indian classical dances from south India, was born in the temples more than two thousand years ago. Earthly rhythmical, sculptural and expressive, this dance form is also considered a yoga since it refers to the ancient and sacred texts. As an Ashtanga yoga practitioner, I experienced the very close relationship between Bharata Natyam and Yoga.
The class embraces the principles of Bharata Natyam, yoga and Kalaripayattu, the ancient Indian martial art.
Asana is the art of finding your seat, with confort, mindfulness and conscious breathing, through the different geometric forms the body takes. The art of Bharata Natyam is focused inwardly, to find the deep connection with the subject of the dance compositions we learn, ranging from abstract to narrative dance, as well as to be equally aware of the alignement and expended lines of the body.
We will explore five rythms with simple footwork which alows us to experience the earthy nature of Bharata Natyam. Developing these new coordinations in the body are highly energizing, grounding, centering and playful at the same time.
