Program Details

For everyone, regardless of physical ability, fitness, or dance experience.

Discover yourself as you dance! This is the invitation of inspired movement teacher Jovinna Chan and her Soul Motion retreat. Offering transformation and fun in equal measure, this workshop is designed for seasoned dancers and self-proclaimed “non-dancers” alike. Soul Motion is an effective and accessible practice that opens the mind, relaxes the body, and awakens the soul of everyone who steps onto the dance floor.

In this retreat, our dance community explores the varied terrains of dance―from solo self-expression to duets and larger group dynamics. Using creative-movement inquiries, Jovinna guides you to

  • Get fully into your body
  • Release fear, inhibition, and judgment
  • Cultivate awareness, presence, and stillness
  • Make meaningful contact with yourself and others
  • Express yourself spontaneously and authentically
  • Move in ways that feel nourishing and supportive.

Through dance, learn how to honor your own essence and stay open to inspiration. Dance can also be your connection to the Divine when you allow movement to bring sacredness to everyday life. Practice living passionately in safe and joyful community, and dance yourself back home.
