Full Description

SHAKE YOUR SOUL® for ages 18+

With Madeline Despres-Chen

Shake Your Soul® is a movement practice that relaxes the nervous system, energizes the body, and awakens the soul through a fluid dance repertoire set to music from around the world. All levels welcome! If you love to move but don’t consider yourself a dancer, this class is for you. If you do consider yourself a dancer and would like to connect with your body on a deeper level or try something new, this class is for you too!

Class typically begins with a Qi Gong warm up, and then Madeline leads participants through movements that relate to the fluids in the body and help you connect with your fluid nature. The final portion of the class includes creative exercises that allow for individual expression, solo exploration, and moving in pairs or with the group. This class is about feeling and embodying, not about how you or your movement looks. Participants are encouraged to adjust any movement that I offer according to their own needs and level of comfort.

Thursdays, June 8 – August 24 (no class June 1 & 22), 5:40-6:45 PM
Fridays, June 9 – 30 & August 11 – 25 (no class June 2), 9:00-10:00 AM
