In my class you can expect to: contemplate spiritual/philosophical teachings; slow down the breath and taste the presence of stillness and silence; move mindfully; co-ordinate breath with movement; sustain poses to deepen focus and awareness; practice breathing exercises and meditation to hone skillfulness in listening to the inner subtle experiences; become intimate with Self.

Soul Movement Sanctuary:

A Conscious Dance Practice

Dance is life in motion. It is a language that allows the inner world to express in space. In the dance field, the human and the divine meet. Soul Movement Sanctuary is a sangha of people who love or are curious about movement. Here in the company of non-dancers and dancers, movers and shakers, we get supple and strong, we explore expressions, we celebrate creativity, we expand empathy, we move and are moved. We dance the embodiment of being.

A conscious dance practice, Soul Movement Sanctuary offers the brilliant teachings from Soul Motion, Moving with Life, LetYourYogaDance, and Theater in the Flesh. In class, you can expect time to contemplate, time to warm up, time for a dance passage, time to dance with partners, time to witness others and to be witnessed.

Jovinna’s Moderate Yoga video was AWESOME!

"I am going through professional and personal transitions right now and as I held the standing and backbend positions all sorts of emotions bubbled to the top! As I practiced in my living room, I had to take a few breaks to regroup myself. Hours later as I moved around my house, I felt my chest opened wider and sensed a relief throughout my spirit! Jovinna’s energy is infectious and I feel it thought my computer screen…. she’s a great balance of strength, courage and compassion Keep shining your light, Jovinna!!!" ~ Pia Serling
