What is Shakti Dance®?

“I am more aware of my body, I respect and love my body more, I feel more sensuous and also stronger in my body, in other words, I can be in my body in more various ways. My symptom of ”frozen shoulder”/shoulder pains have disappeared. I have gained more harmony, love and life force in my life. Thank you!”

Shakti Dance® is a form of conscious and devotional dance in which different dance styles, movements and rhythms are used as a yogic tool and combined with breath, focus and energy work.



This blend leads to the balance of the body-mind-energy and expands the consciousness. It has different phases, from gentle stretches and dynamic standing exercises to free dance, relaxation and meditation.

  1. Tuning-in – turning inward to listen to our inner wisdom with the help of mantras and mudras (hand positions)
  2. Shakti Stretching – opening the flow of energy in the energy channels with various repetitive, flowing stretches that are coordinated with the breath
  3. Standing Exercises – dance movements from different dance styles performed in rhythm with the breath to stimulate and expand the energy and aura
  4. Free Dance – a creative, soulful space for free expression after opening and clearing the energy field
  5. Relaxation – A moment of resting and letting go any tension while the energy subtly reorganizes itself within us
  6. Mantra Choreography – Repetitive (=meditative) choreographies to mantra music that reflect the meaning of the mantra and realign our energy with the whole group
  7. Silent Meditation – Gently allowing the silence of the mind to grow, going back to our pure self
  8. Closing – Protecting the aura with mantras and mudras
