What happens in an Ecstatic Awakening DanceClass?

The Ecstatic Awakening Danceclass has 5 stages:

Stage 1: BODY WARM-UP (approx. 15-20 minutes) – a gentle awakening of the body parts using breath, awareness, movement and music.

Every part of the body tells a story and in this warm-up we allow fluid movements and rhythmical breath to move stuck energy and to prepare us physically and mentally for the next phase of the class.


Stage 2: SHAKE (15 minutes) – this is perhaps the most important stage as it ignites the life force for the transformative process to begin. Here we allow the body to shake and tremble all over.

With eyes closed and breath deep and relaxed, the shake is based on Osho’s Kundalini Meditation.

It also has its roots in an ancient form of Chi Kung that uses shaking to open blocked energy-meridians. Its purpose is to shake off stress and tension and to awaken our life force which is often “sleepy”. The effect is refreshing, energizing and balancing.

It is also a preparation on physical, emotional and mental levels for the deeper let-go of the next stage.


Stage 3: BREATH OF FIRE AND ECSTATIC DANCE (approx. 45 mins) – this is the central part of the method and is done with the eyes closed. In this phase, we are ready to go deeper and surrender to the dance.


We ignite the letting-go process with a simple Breathing technique called the Breath of Fire. This section can also be done with a simple Circular Breathing technique. Both of these breathing techniques oxygenate the body and brain so that we are fully energised, switch off the rational “everyday” thinking mind and facilitate a “whole-brain” activity which means we access deeper levels of being through the dance. The repetitive rhythms of the breath and the music also enhance synchronised brain activity so that we experience expanded consciousness states.



  • Stuck physical energy and emotions can surface easily to be safely released;
  • Relief from everyday worries and the general chatter of the mind;
  • Clarity of thinking from a higher perspective;
  • Internal visions, insights and inspirations that can help us move forwards in our lives;
  • A sense of self-empowerment;
  • A sense of calm, peace, joy and bliss;
  • A warm open-hearted state in which you feel connected and whole.
  • A connection with the Divine/Spirit, a sense of Oneness and Wonder;
  • An experience of ecstasy and liberation.


Stage 4: STILLNESS – when the music stops, so does the dance and you simply drop to the ground in silence and stillness to allow the integration of energies and deep relaxation.

Stage 5: MEDITATION – now we complete the process with a simple guided visualisation to ground ourselves and come back to our everyday lives in a place of peace, clarity and self-love.
