We were born to dance! Human beings have used dance to celebrate, build community, and feel a sense of well-being from our earliest days on this earth. It is time for you to reclaim this birthright. Bring new inspiration and freedom to your body and mind with Shake Your Soul, an integrative dance, meditative movement, and mindfulness-based practice.
Dan Leven, one of the cofounders of Kripalu’s much-loved daily dance experience, Kripalu YogaDance®, invites you to a safe, supportive, and inspiring space where you can:
• move with the rhythm, aliveness, and passion of your heart.
• learn “organic” exercises that massage and mobilize the energy in your organs.
• connect with the natural dancer inside you through guided movement and creative movement explorations set to dynamic and inspirational world music.
• commune with your spirit as you are supported in heartfelt community.
Dan Leven is founder and director of LIFE Movement, Leven Institute for Expressive Movement. Drawing on 40 years of experience, Dan created Shake Your Soul® and SomaSoul®: Somatic Therapy, integrative approaches to body-mind healing and wellness. As a former professional dancer and current program director at the Kripalu Center, where he co-founded Kripalu Danskinetics™ (now Kripalu YogaDance®), Dan has led numerous workshops and professional certification trainings at the Omega Institute and Kripalu. Dan holds a masters in pastoral counseling and is a faculty member of Hartford Family Institute’s Body-Centered Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Program, training psychotherapists and healers in this work.
