Yoga Trance Dance
Dance as meditation is as ancient as humanity. Sacred dance is an important element of our human history and culture. It is a proven stress reliever and a fun way to express your creativity without the pressure of a nightclub environment.

(Dancing, sitting in meditation, stretching, shaking, laying on your mat or doing yoga are all appropriate)
