Pravāha (Flow): Indian Classical
Mesma Belsaré | Tuesdays 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Balance at Urbanity Dance - 111 W. Concord St
Mesma Belsaré has been a student and professional practitioner of classical Indian dance for almost 20 years, with a keen interest in dance as yogic practice. Her work has been written about in The New York Times, The Hindustan Times, The Toronto Star and The Dance Current Magazine among others.
Often associated with a river, the Sanskrit word 'pravāha' means 'flow'. Based on Patānjali's Yoga Sūtra, Belsaré’s PRAVĀHA (FLOW) class is designed to enable students to cut through the mental and physical blocks and unleash their unique energetic, rhythmic flow. Involving fluid and percussive dance movements, prānāyāma breathing techniques and mental focus, this is a dynamic meditation class to help alleviate everyday stress and anxiety.
Formal dance training or background is not necessary. Dress in comfortable, lose or stretchable clothing. No shoes.
