“Embodied Dance” is a unique methodology created by Daniel *Sonic* Rojas, collected over 25 years of experience as a professional mover, dancer and performer, that combines elements of different movement cultures to inspire freedom & creativity, breaking the boundaries of dance and exploring feeling through movement. This practice brings together various elements of yoga, physical conditioning, capoeira, housing, popping, breakdance, parkour and contemporary dance techniques, as well as utilises breath, oscillations and communication through movement, to gain better understanding of the body and our innate musicality. Embodied Dance is a powerful physical practice (strengthening, stretching, opening, conditioning) as well as a highly energetic practice in that it opens free movement within the whole body, aligns energy centres and allows the practitioner to feel inspired, open & energised. Whether one approaches this art form for personal movement liberation, physical or emotional healing, physical conditioning or simply for reaching an ecstatic state - it is a malleable, profound practice that can touch the spirit of any practitioner. To practice Embodied Dance, one simply needs to be free of boundaries related to movement and willing to integrate their own movement based practices into a dynamic journey of physical & energetic healing.
