Embodied Alchemy with Ella Mesma: Monday Morning Movement Meditation Mantra and Mudra
Date & Time
Whilst we are in a period of social distancing, we are offering classes taught by company members from their homes. This class is for everyone: all levels, all experiences, and is an invitation to get our emotions in motion, move our physical body, shake off our stress and wake up our creativity. The next 7 week course starts on 25th May. You do not need to attend every session to experience the benefits. Embodied Alchemy MMMM Session with Ella Mesma: Movement, Meditation, Mudra and Mantra by Maya Gandaia “As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” Maya Gandaia is about Moving through Illusion to Joy, and this session is designed to move through the archetypes to release the emotions and stories no longer serving us through motion and into our highest self. This session starts with a chakra alignment to ground in ourselves, to connect to our genius and to open up to a deeper level of creativity, followed by a meditative flow to move to a place of heart, to limber up the hips and spine and to breathe into the infinite universe. Our movement class is divided into 7 sections: some are easy to follow, some are improvised, and some are taught routines or sections. I will build the sequences bit by bit so we have time to dance free each week, and as the weeks build you eventually learn the full sequences. All you will need is a small space: if you have the space for a yoga mat great: if more even better. I invite you to begin the class bare footed, but to have socks handy. For all levels. Whilst we are establishing this class, we will be breaking down the exercises in detail, then eventually running the class on an hour loop. You can choose a free ticket (recommended for the self employed, unemployed, NHS workers and anyone else in need at this difficult time, or a pay as you feel ticket (Our classes before Covid cost £11 but we suggest £5 upwards in covid times)… Ella Mesma Company morning class is an Embodied Alchemy Movement meditation. We do this class every morning and love how it sets up our body mind and soul for the day! Our classes marry Graham and Dunham contemporary techniques with elements of yoga with beautiful movements from Cuba and Brazil. The sequences tend to put an emphasis on the spine, and move seamlessly in and out of the floor and can often be grounded, fluid and energetic. We describe them as a movement ritual.
