WHAT IS ED?
Ecstatic Dance is a new way of experiencing music, space, free expression, sharing and meeting, freeing the energy away from the disco chaos. Ecstatic Dance supports a protected, creative, beneficial and powerful space. We strongly believe that the world now needs it extremely now!
Three basic guidelines: we move barefoot, we dance without words, we do not use any intoxicants (alcohol, smartphones).
The intent is to share a space where we can explore the beauty of pure feelings and the vitality of our body when we let it move spontaneously, allowing thoughts to turn into actions, emotions to unfold and ourselves to be free!
It is an opportunity to move and dance freely, meditate and breathe in a sacred space. We practice acceptance, absence of judgment and expectations regarding others. This allows us to feel free to be ourselves, and to show what we feel (and what we are!). We practice respect for every individual and every identity, for our boundaries and limits.
We Dance every musical genre, every vibration that connects us with a wider awareness of ourselves, every vibration that allows us to experiment the infinite range of possibilities that our marvellous Being could express.
If you had told me (2 years ago) that the hospitals would be overcrowded and that we are obliged to walk with a mask, that we have mandatory house arrest and many professions are not allowed to be carried out, I would have laughed at you completely.
Unfortunately there is nothing to laugh about and the above has become reality. All media are reporting how dangerous corona is and what we all have to do to avoid becoming infected. In contrast, little is said about how important it is to strengthen your immune system, so that the chance of survival is much greater! And that is exactly what I want to help you with!
Something personal about me: @ corona time I felt the fear, lost my job, my income, my house, sports and I felt miserable. In addition, I had an accident 3 months ago. Because of my brain injury, I could no longer take care of my son, my puppy and myself. I had one wish: to be healthy... From there my focus had changed and I was no longer concerned with Covid 19 and other misery. I was so happy with the help I got (asking for it was the hardest part), that I enjoyed the little things more then ever. I made progress on a weekly basis, piece by piece. The progress had to do with being 100% focused on myself! I had a rehabilitation schedule (healthy food, exercise, yoga, swimming and walking, meditation and keeping a diary). Finally I had the time to wonder: what is really important? Conclusion: focus on the positive, surround yourself with love and support, dancing (or any other form of sport), healthy food and awareness moments. So here we go!
After two weeks, I feel much better and I feel an enormous urge to really mean something to others more than ever! My questions are: How can i help? What is healthy and what is really useful to people at this moment?
For years I have turned my passion into my profession: Dance and yoga teacher, hypnotherapist and coach. So why not dance online for everyone?
I'm known as a dancer, entertainer, for my enthusiasm, my purity, my professionalism and positivity. Free dancing (ecstatic dance) makes me the happiest and is the answer to all my questions!!!
