Enstatic Dance is an integrative approach to authentic dance, designed to facilitate a simultaneous silent-meditative connection with ourselves, while maintaining a high energy in the body. Enstatic Dance is not about releasing old patterns. Its goal is to amplify the focus and to increase the connection with ourselves and the reality. In other words, it is a way to develop a friendly relationship with life-energy, also known as kundalini.
