HOME | MULADHARA | ROOT CHAKRA | GROUNDING AND FOUNDATION
“The ache for home lives in all of us: the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned” Maya Angelou
Inspired by the Root Chakra (Muladhara), HOME uses different improvisation techniques and work with the bandhas and the ‘Pole of the Body’ (as described by Katherine Dunham) to discover and unlock the unique movement language within all of us.
We can carry HOME within us, making our HOME wherever we travel to, and making connections from this rooted and grounded place once we reclaim our right to exist and let go of the need to fix ourselves or our surroundings and step into a vibration of abundance and love.
The Muladhara or Root chakra corresponds to the physical body and connection to the Earth.
Just like a foundation, it is concerned with the basics of survival (evolution) and thoughts such as ‘I don’t belong’ and so in this class we use affirmations, grounding, contract/release work, floor-work and the imagination to come home to our authentic selves.
This session includes Journalling, Meditation, Improvised dance to Latin and Afro House, (and other awesome tracks) and Relaxation.
HOME also comes with a complimentary Chakra PDF about how to further work on opening and grounding.
“The knowledge she gave, the vibe created and being able to access the “Home” place we so regularly forget about and overlook, all led to a soul warming and fulfilling experience. I would highly recommend all artists from any background to take Ella’s workshops” Kiran Kumar, Student, Leeds
