Tantric Temple Dancer Playshop

 

-Do you desire to be more in your body in the most sacred and profound ways? 

-Do you desire to be seen and celebrated in your raw ecstatic power?

-Would you like to explore the depths and treasures of movement as medicine? 

Join iX-Chel Sandivel for an evening of Tantric Temple Dancing, followed by the Advanced Temple Dancer Playshop: Burlesque Striptease and Temple Dancer Play Party.

iX-Chel has been practicing Tantra Yoga for 8 years and one of her greatest joys is expressing ecstatic energy through transformational dance using tantric breathing techniques and Shamanic Fushion Dance Intuitive Technique. She’s a Level 4 Tantra Educator from Source Tantra Yoga, the most established school of Tantra in the west and recently completed her Reverend Priestess program with Master Movement Director and Reverend Priestess Anandha Ray. 

In this playshop you will learn tantric yogic techniques to help you become more aware of your energy and the Intuitive Technique that renowned master movement director and performer Anandha Ray has created as a way to unlock the body completely. You will experience, “the profound gifts that come with moving out of the way and letting your energetic body speak its language.”

You will experience using this raw ecstatic energy as a transformational offering like those practiced by the temple dancers, devadasi. 

The deva desi offered their dance as an essential part to temple worship. Dancing was seen as a spiritual devotion. The temple dancers literally “servants of God” of India were divided into various categories. The highest were experts at the different kinds of Yoga and through years of training developed control over their body functions. As initiatresses of Tantric Yoga, they served an important role. They were considered to be the mistresses of the temple gods, the embodiments of the Gopis and emanations of Lakshmi. The prosperity of the country was believed to be related to the rites and activities of the temple dancers. After experiencing the intuitive technique, guests will choose a goddess deity they feel called to express and embody during their temple dance.

Doors open at 7:44 and doors will close at 8:15pm. Please plan on arriving before 8:10 to ensure your participation. If you arrive late, you will not be permitted to join the playshop. Thank you for understanding in advance.
