On this New Moon, we are so blessed to welcome internationally acclaimed ritual arts dance teacher, Zola Dubnikova, to Boston for the first time ever! As someone who has personally trained with her in various parts of the world, it's a huge honor to have her share her powerful gifts and teachings of the divine feminine with the women of our community.
I can assure that you will leave more connected to yourself, to the other women, and to a new found depth of your own divine feminine power. Her trainings around the world sell out fast so make sure to reserve your spot for this unique offering.
~~ With love, Carolyn Little ~~
Zola’s work is deeply informed by years of immersion into cultural traditional dance forms, however, all of her offerings contain a language beyond culture and time ~ Pleasurable embodiment, diverse physicality, subtle body language, ritual movement and inner alchemy are the main elements of the holistic dance language curriculum. Informed by ancient tradition, seeped in contemporary somatic/body science, infused with movement medicine and immersed in sacred dance inspired across time and worlds, the practices revive our hidden (forgotten) abilities, creating pathways of remembrance in the body.
Through the practices, we have the power of complete metamorphosis and enhanced communication at our fingertips. The earth-based foundational work guides us to trust the ground beneath us more, deepen our roots and “fly” from a supported place. Connecting to our pelvis, to the earth and to our voice gives us deeper roots. Connecting to the heart, we open the sky.
Through the dance we access deep softness, grace and potent strength. We release blocked energy, and build inner power. We learn a unique vocabulary of movement, mudra and subtle energetic principles. With a combination of slowed inner listening, breath/sound work, focused practice, and liberating trance-inducing movement, we bring our prayers to the physical world, planting the seeds of our hidden dreams within every cell of our bodies.
In a space where only women are present, a unique safety exists enabling us to go even deeper into these practices.
