Shake It Off! Preventing Burn-Out through Belly Dance

August 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm


This summer, take yourself (or a group of friends) on a self-care date and sign up for a specialized workshop focusing on key foundational movements found in belly dance traditions that awaken new patterns in the body to access self-soothing and de-stressing techniques. Participants will learn to integrate new movement techniques and mini dance-combos as new ways to practice self-care.

This workshop is designed to help you:

  • Build tools to both calm the nervous system in times of stress, and energizes in times of collapse or fatigue

  • Find deep stillness or inner exploration through gentle wave work

  • Utilize up-regulating movements through rhythm, core strength and vibrational shimmies

  • Ground in the present moment and celebrate our delicious selves!

Belly Dance is a community practice that empowers individuals to experience the pleasure of connecting and honouring their sensual being.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Fee: $40 includes the following resources

  • Belly dance for self-care tools

  • Choreography video

  • Worksheet to support your nervous system
