5. Relaxation
The rhythmic pulsation of mind, body and spirit is allowed to integrate while releasing tensions.

6. Mantric Choreography
Choreographies to mantric music are danced in geometric group formation. Self-repeating sequences stimulate the meditative mind and help realign both individual and group energy.

7. Meditation
A moment is taken to return to the stillness within, to enjoy the fulfilment of emptiness following the satisfaction of self-expression. This is a chance to bathe in the regenerative space of the Source within.

8. Closing
Inner and outer worlds are brought into balance while a protective auric shield is created around each participant.


Shakti Dance® consists of different phases that combine to cleanse and awaken the pranic body, so that the practitioner can access and enjoy the Spirit of Shakti:

1. Tuning in
This opens the class with a mantra accompanied by a mudra. It centres and prepares the mind, creating the necessary connection to receive the teachings.

2. Shakti Stretching
Rhythmic and meditative floor exercises, flowing in coordination with the breath. This phase warms up, increases flexibility, relaxes and opens energy channels in the body.

3. Standing Exercises and Trance Sequences
Energising exercises and dance sequences, opening the chakras with rhythmic and breath-coordinated movement. Physical awareness is heightened through the isolation of body parts. Harmonious expression is developed through the acquisition of universal principles of free-flowing movement. This phase in particular recharges vitality.

4. Free Dance
Taking inspiration from the previous phases, the inherent creative impulse is given free reign to express itself. With increased awareness of the energetic body (aura), a fluid interaction between inner and outer spaces is explored and enjoyed.
