Nritya Yoga Classes/Workshops
Nritya Yoga(NRITYOGA™), created by Amrita, concentrates on the physical, emotional, spiritual, and socio-cultural aspects of ancient sacred movement, dance, Yoga and Meditation.
Yoga and Indian Sacred dance are inseparable. It is believed that the sacred scriptures were handed down to us through expression, movement, and rhythm of dance; a dynamic form of Yoga (jyog)!
This class/workshop offers a holistic practice that goes beyond technique and structure; and emphasizes the whole being , as a continuous form in joyful, ecstatic motion. Nritya Yoga uses various ancient Tantric, Vaishnava and Buddhist philosophies, techniques of Movement, Yoga and Sacred Dance and brings it back to a more contemporary setting so it can be practiced by all.

2) Vibrant, powerful, & joyful Trance Dance (Tantric, Vaishnava, Sufi and many more Trance dance traditions)
3) Meditation in Motion using Mudras (sacred hand gestures) & sacred sanskrit mantra chanting .
An experience that truly incorporates the body, mind & spirit; spiritually inspiring and soulfully uplifting! We explore the ancient philosophies of our creative/sensual energies through this compassionate, graceful, and joyful voyage of the ecstatic soul!
