Throughout the world's cultural traditions there is a common element of movement meditation. Movement can still the thoughts, bringing a state of deeper connection to Self. Sacred actions arising from within can bring a state of physical, emotional and spiritual flow: union. The flow of the inner consciousness can be expressed outwardly through motion in yoga and dance. From Shiva Tandava's dance of creation, whirling dervishes of the Sufi tradition, to modern belly dance fusion forms, there is a unifying stream.
Experience belly dance as a way of connection to your divine nature. Co-founder of a temple fusion belly dance troupe in 2011, Saraphina teaches weekly classes in studio, live or virtually, through zoom, and offers private instruction of dance, yoga and sacred music. Honored to have trained in person with Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Saul David Raye and Shiva Rea, these teachers and so many more remain an inspiration.
Saraphina Yoga embodies elements of belly dance, such as spinal undulation, smaller body undulations and Mudras from yoga and classical Indian dance. With fluid transitions of Asana sequences, the places the body reaches between each pose become as rich and informing as the Asana. In yoga and dance classes, Saraphina also offers ideas for a more engaging home practice.
Breath, deepening throughout each sequence or dance movement is a fuel that taps into life force. Experience for yourself the flow of your life force, mind and body union.
