Ecstatic Dance Chicago elevates culture by offering a space to cultivate authentic expression, and mindful connection. It is a place where you can explore your dance, and connect with an awesome collective dance consciousness.
Sat Nam Yoga Studio played a crucial part in the rise of Ecstatic Dance Chicago. It is a place where incredible talent was found to present healing arts, sound baths, and movement warm ups at Ecstatic Dance. Now Ecstatic Dance Chicago comes directly to Sat Nam to offer a space for guided and free form movement that will support the flow and blossoming of your life force energy. This will also be a fun-d raiser for Sat Nam Yoga, with all income going directly to the studio.
You are invited to this extraordinary dance activation, where you can dance all that needs to be danced, shake loose anything holding you back, and find the joy in your own dance and in a shared experience with others that want the same!
