The original Shakti Dance was created in the depth of winter, with Saturn as Capricorn’s ruler and guide, dictating the structure and dedication to rise against the odds. Working with a choreographic limitation (Saturn) of remaining down on the mat, I found creative ways for bodies rise and fly inwardly. In struggling with this difficulty (Saturn,) more of the magic-morph between angel and human grew within the movement. The intention is to expand, and unfurl our wings, to grow that angelic self and live here on earth. The joy of this Shakti is we learn to rise again and again until we are able to embody heavenly and earthly polarities. This is the sweet battle between high self and low self. We honor both. Both win, both serve this life.
