Chakradance is about freedom of expression, encouraging everyone to follow their own natural rhythm. As there are no set steps in Chakradance, each dancer experiences their authentic movement from the inside-out. Let the music move you in a fun, energetic, heart-pumping workout or open your self to the spiritual connection the dance offers.
Anyone can receive the benefits of Chakradance. With its roots in Jungian psychology, Chakradance encourages people to dance for self-discovery and self-healing. Enter the waking dream of the dance, close your eyes and surrender to the music. As the music’s vibrations move you, you may see images in your mind’s-eye, recall memories or gain insights related to each chakra. You may also feel emotions or physical sensations.
Explore the essence of your spirit within. Feel the beating and pulsing nature of your soul as it moves with spontaneous dance to this rhythmic enchanting music. Take a guided journey through your chakras and discover freedom and personal insights. Then integrate your dance with your own creative expression of mandala art.
Acquaint yourself with your energetic body through dance in this introductory class to the Awakening Cycle. Connect with your inner world as you dance with guided imagery and soul-moving music, awakening each chakra to its natural vibration. This class includes a warm up and then a journey through the chakras, exploring rhythms and unique essence of each major chakra in your energetic body. At the end of class we integrate your experience through the creative expression of mandala art.
Feel your unique vibration as you awaken your inner spirit.
This 9 week cycle takes you on an in-depth journey through each of your chakras. This gives you space to allow the energy of each chakra to reveal itself through your dance each week. After acquainting yourself through the Intro to Awakening class, you will dance your way from Muladhara all the way up to Sahasrara, then spend our final week integrating the entire journey. Each weeks class begins with a warm up through all of the chakras and then takes you on a soul-filled awakening into each energy center as you dance to rhythmic music that stimulates and welcomes the full expression of that particular chakra. As we integrate each dance, we take time for self-expression by creating mandala art.
"I recently had the pleasure of joining Brenda’s Chakradance Workshop in Halifax. The peaceful environment she created allowed for self-exploration and creativity. The workshop was enjoyable, and very healing. I look forward to joining again soon, and recommend you check it out!” - Kara Melendy

Each of the seven chakras vibrates at its own frequency. Music is able to balance the chakras by using the sound vibrations to tune each energy center. The music is modern dance music with specific musical tones that resonate with the chakras. Interwoven with the music are the pure tones of crystal bowls sourced from across the globe, that release a vibrational sound field that is an essential ingredient of each dance.
Chakradance music has a lasting effect. The vibrations continue to pulse outward into our energy field long after the sounds have stopped playing. The more we experience these healing sounds, the greater and the more permanent the effect. When the music is combined with spontaneous dance, the healing effect is magnified.
There are seven major chakras in your energetic body, located along the central channel of your body, from your tailbone all the way up to your crown. Energy is flowing through channels all over your body. The chakras are wheels where the energy passes through as it interacts to your internal and external environments. There are different interpretations of the chakra's and subtle body system. In Chakradance, we do not analyse the chakras, we believe the healing power of the dance is extremely therapeutic and welcomes the natural flow of energy in the entire body.
