Rainbow Bridge: a course for developing your own personal movement meditation practice

It's your body. It's your dance. It's your power.

This course will focus on the body's energetic system in order to provide tools for empowering and transforming your personal dance practice. 

This course is for those who are truly serious about transforming their relationship with their bodies and personal movement practice. It is a journey of embodied self-discovery, personal empowerment and spiritual growth. 

 

This course looks at each body’s unique dance as a source of untapped power. It looks specifically to the energy system of the body as the main source of guidance. It uses ancient tools from the Yogic energy system, Qi Gong and Balinese dance with modern somatic practices that include Authentic Movement, Butoh, and Contemporary Dance. Participants will be provided with guided meditations, visualizations, shamanic journeys and guided movement practices. The aim of this course is to reconnect you with your own personal dance practice, which can be a source of wisdom, inner knowing and power throughout your life. 

 

The course consists of 10 one and a half hour sessions and 2 private practice sessions for individualized support. At the completion of each session you will receive a supplemental meditation and/or movement practice along with suggested practices. 

The first half of the course provides a stable groundwork for establishing your practice. The second half provides space for each participant to discover their personal ‘embodied voice’ and step into a leadership role. Participants will leave the course with tools for a rich and resilient personal dance practice. They will also have gained skills in leading movement that they can share, teach and expand upon in their respective fields. 

 

Dance can be seen and used for many different purposes. For the purpose of this course, dance is understood as an ancient and innate source of embodied wisdom. It is available to all bodies regardless of ability, age and background.

No specific dance or physical training is required for this course. Simply a willingness and curiosity to deepen one’s body awareness is all that is required.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY

To learn more about me, visit my story and choreographer's bio

Geo

Former Student UCSD (2019)

I have never had a teacher like Aurora. She sees you. She sees that your body is not just muscles and bones but a soul and a spirit. 

She is kinda like some old grandmother or shaman, she helped me see myself as powerful. My dance as meaningful. 

I became a dance major after her class. I highly recommend dancing with her. 

Cynthia

 Former Student (2014-2016)

Dancing with Aurora is an embodied ritual. She brings the sacred and the mundane together. Tiny things change everything.

I danced and trained a long time with lots of different teachers before dancing with Aurora. Yet, her approach significantly changed my practice. It really helped me soften and receive. 

My personal practice is stronger because I am not pushing like I used to. I am allowing and listening. I am kinder. 

Chen/ Shannon

Former Student (2017-2020)

I never trusted myself. I never trusted my body. Then I took your dance class and it changed my life. I felt so dumb at first, but you kept encouraging me to listen, to trust. I was opened to a world inside I did not know existed. Before your class, I could not really be with myself  but now that has changed. I have befriended my body. 

Thanks to you encouragement, I have continued to dance. It is now a part of my life for my expression and my healing.
