Movement and Connection with Persian Flow

Using breath, personal intentions and Persian-Iranian dance as a foundation, this fluid movement experience will leave you feeling relaxed and more connected to yourself. Enjoy the soulful effects of traditional Iranian music, a beautiful combination of melodies, rhythms and voice in the Persian language. Conclude the experience with Hafez's poetry, igniting inspiration and fostering deep inner contemplation.

Students engage in movements and mindful breathing, fostering a sense of attunement with their bodies and breath. As the session progresses, this foundation deepens through movements rooted in Persian dance that cultivate awareness and connection with the inner self. As the session draws to a close, each participant selects a piece of Hafez poetry, known as "Fal-e Hafez" in Farsi. Through contemplation and interpretation, these interpreted verses are an opportunity for inner reflection. By the end, a collective sense of centeredness and embodiment permeates the space, leaving participants grounded and connected both within themselves and with one another. 


While some dance movements will be introduced, this is not a "dance class". This is a low-impact class that will definitely generate internal heat throughout the experience.
