DANCE with a DOC! Is honored to be featuring the Center for Transformative Movement’s energizing ECSTATIC GROOVE Movement Meditation in the form of a freeform / ecstatic group dance. This fitness and mental wellness method provides just enough simple guidance to allow your own groove to shine through naturally.
That is the magic and ease of this bio/psycho/social movement-based practice – there’s nothing you have to learn and no fancy steps to memorize or follow. It is simply allowing yourself to open up to the freeing feeling of letting go and in turn, experiencing the playfulness and flow that already exist abundantly inside you. ECSTATIC GROOVE-ing is one of the easiest ways to let go of stress, have fun working out and boost your mood anytime, anywhere, alone or with others.
It’s a meditation practice you can do in the way you would make time to do sitting meditation or yoga, take a break from the fast pace of life… and ‘tune in’ to the natural playfulness and exhilaration of your best self. What wellness is all about.
