DANCEmandala is a free form of moving as a meditation practice that facilitates healing through your own unique movement. It “invites every inch of the body to awaken, release through movement and then find peace through stillness.”

This class is an opportunity for participants to explore the various movements of DANCEmandala with the support of breath and music.

Alizeh’s approach to Yoga and Meditation derives from holistic wellbeing. For her, the breath is the most vital part of practice. She believes that “it is via the breath that we reach the inaccessible parts of our bodies to open up and remove tension.” It is through the breath that we shift our nervous system to a place of relaxation and restoration. It is with the breath that we come into a state of inward focus and calm.”
