Intro To Odissi Temple Dance says
~ Divine Dance of Devotion ~
~ Sacred Embodiment of Shiva/Shakti ~

Saturdays from Oct. 29th - Dec 17th 10:00am-11:30am
*7 Week Series - NO CLASS ON SATURDAY NOV. 12th*
Full 7 week series $84.00, or $17.00 drop in

This class will serve as a preparatory introduction to the profound art of Odissi Temple Dance. This class will detail the opening prayer/chant, the Bhoomi Pranam (opening and closing reverential dance salutation to Divine Mother in her embodiment as Mother Earth), extensive warm-ups, supporting strengthening and conditioning exercises, Eye, Head and Body movements/technique.. All single handed and double handed Mudras, All Pada’s (foot positions) as well as the two foundational Odissi dance postures ~ Choka and Tribhangi, we will also practice the stepping excerises for the postures.

I will also share bits of historical information and Temple Dance theory in each class as well.

Limited Space, we have room for 12 dancers. Contact me personally to register.

I am creating these offerings in the deepest humility and in devoted honor of my teachers, the lineage I have studied and Mother India herself. This enchanting, ancient, power-FULL practice has truly transformed my life and the way that I experience my embodiment. Since returning from my dance pilgrimages, I have deeply longed to share this sacred dance space with other dancers. I look forward to dancing with you!! Please know that I am no master, no guru, not even a senior Odissi student per se. But I will offer what I feel confident with in the utmost pure hearted devotion. I just feel honored and excited to anchor Odissi Temple Dance here in Portland.
