Guided Movement Experience with Taz Rashid: Find power, strength, and gratitude through a unique combination of dance and meditation with renowned musical artist DJ Taz Rashid. The session will begin with a grounding meditation followed by invigorating beats. The meditation will focus on the breath, tuning into your inner voice and setting a personal intention. Participants will then be invited to connect to each of the five elements: earth, fire, wind, water, and ether. Each element has qualities that we work with on a daily basis. By connecting with the elements, a sense of peace and oneness can be created through your own movement. Sound Off headphones will be used during this dance meditation experience and will allow you to stay centered in a personal yet immersive musical experience. No dance experience necessary.
Following the guided movement experience will be a relaxing guided meditation as we journey inward to connect within, rejuvenate the mind and body and reinvigorate the soul. Reduce mind chatter and increase self-love through this meditation.
