Friday Ecstatic Dance
What is Ecstatic Dance?
Ecstatic Dance is a global movement active around the world and was launched for the first time in Bali in 2009 by Yoga Barn co-founder Charley Patton.
The Yoga Barn Friday Ecstatic Dance is an all-ages community gathering where you can simply BE yourself and experience freedom through the rhythms of global beats and movement.
Please, come as you are to experience this substance-free, uplifting and happy space of dance and free movement – let your inhibitions melt away.
Our Garden Kafe is open until 10:00 pm every Friday for you to enjoy a pre-dance meal from our organic and vegetarian menu. Or, naturally boost your energy and open your heart space with an Ubud Raw ceremonial cacao, a perfect pre-dance drink. Gather your friends and plan your pre-dance meet in our Garden Kafe. And don’t forget to dance again on Sunday and enjoy our scrumptious Sunday lunch buffet!
Ecstatic Dance – 3 Simple Guidelines
1. We Dance without shoes (or: We Dance Barefoot)
This allows us to connect more fully with the Ground (socks are OK)
If you have a physical condition that you need dance shoes, then OK
2. We Dance without words (or: We Dance with Body Language)
This makes it easier to be in a Meditative State
No Verbal Instruction from the Facilitators
No Talking from the Dancers
3. We Dance as We Are
No Drugs/Alcohol, No Phones, No Camera/Video, No Scents, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Shoulds, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.
