Shiva's Dance

In this Flow sequence with Nico Luce we’ll focus on balancing poses, hip openers and back-bends as a way to rise above the circumstances and find joy while moving through life challenges. Lord Shiva, Hindu God of Transformation, dances the Ananda Tandava in order to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for the god Brahma to start the process of creation. While the Rudra Tandava depicts his violent nature, first as the creator and later as the destroyer of the universe, even of death itself; the Ananda Tandava depicts him as enjoying the bliss of being. Thus Tandava symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction, as well as the daily rhythm of birth and death. Featuring music by Zamir Dhanji and Loren Nikkel
