What is Somatic Dance?

Have you ever heard of Somatic Dance Movement? Have you heard of Ecstatic Dance?

Chances are you probably haven’t heard of Somatic Dance, and chances are you have heard of Ecstatic Dance. They are essentially the same concept. What it is, is a form of dance movement that gets you curious in noticing what is happening in your body in the moment and without getting stuck or checking out. It is about the felt sensations! Somatic Dance Movement is for everyone! If you can sit, stand, walk, lay on the floor then this is for you! This is for the person who wants to connect with their body, develop trust and confidence in their whole selves, and strengthen their intuitive power.

How can Somatic Dance Movement benefit me?

Have you heard "the body keeps score"?

As humans, we have a relationship with our body and our emotions. We may experience stress, anxiety, or trauma. Many times when we experience this, we have not had time to process it. Due to this, our bodies store it in our hips, psoas, butt, neck, shoulders, jaw, feet, hands, etc. Over time these areas will become tight, aggitated, inflammed. When we approach ourselves intentionally, it allows us to connect with our bodies, tune into our internal experiences, and learn to regulate without avoidance. When we approach our bodies with curiosity rather than with fear, we begin to evolve.

What you will learn + experience with Akouo?

You will creatively engage with emotional, physical and cognitive processes through dance and movement. You will be able to use these coping skills to intervene when experiencing overwhelming emotions. You will safely explore and express your body. Learn to love your body with self-compassion. Your body is your divine teacher.
