From there he developed a dance form called Tantric Dance in 2007 that holds many important tantric principles. This dance type is now common around the world, he has trained many teachers and loves sharing it at festivals.
A beautiful and playful way of self-exploration through dance, meditation and contact. Through powerful leadership and deep surrender, to make new discoveries about yourself. It is a dance format in which you can dance freely with the receiver that has their eyes closed, the blindfold is a helpful tool for that. Through dance an energy exchange of giving and receiving is created, we call this a play of the polarities. Tantric Dance offers the opportunity to learn to dance with life, sometimes it requires powerful leadership, other times surrender and letting go. Clear instructions are given so that you feel safe at all times and can stop the dance if necessary. The dance was developed by Art of Loving in 2007 and is growing throughout the world.
Dance partners are changed after each song, so you will continue to make new discoveries and dynamics. As a couple, you are welcome to participate and stay together if desired.
