Living a Great Life

Living a Great Life

What is it that gets expressed through the body and movement that can’t be articulated in words? Last night at a Biodanza class with Kate and Claudio, I met a man in his 50s who said, You can go dancing 6 nights of the week in Sydney. I was curious, Do you go dancing 6 days a week? He said, yes I do. Well, most weeks. I looked right into his smiling face and said, you have such a great life!

I was curious about what kind of dancing this man with the open heart and incredible skin was practicing. We’re talking biodanza, Nia, 5 Rhythms, Dancing Freedom and I hear No Lights No Lyrca is also happening here.

Anyone else think it’s wild that we can design our lives in a way that gives us joy and pleasure and fulfils on what matters to us?

What is:

Biodanza (neologism from the Greek bio (life) and the Spanish danza (dance), literally the dance of life) is a system of self-development that uses music, movement and positive feelings to deepen self-awareness. Biodanza

Nia is the art of movement the body’s way. Nia is a cardio-dance workout, a movement practice, and lifestyle based on the intelligent design of the body.

5Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice—a practice of being in your body—that ignites creativity, connection, and community.

No Lights No Lycra is a casual free-form dance class in the dark for the pure joy of dancing.

Dancing Freedom is a movement practice to embody your freedom to live, love, create and be who you really are.
