Somatic Shamanic Shake with Alicia Michelle

Fri 6 Oct, 6-7 pm. 1st Fridays 6:00-7:00 pm at Flow Space $25 pre-sale $30 door Journey into the realms of primal shaking and shamanic trance. Shaking is a primal instinct observed in wild animals after a life-threatening event. They shake to release tension and trauma, and return to balance. Yet, we have been socially conditioned to be calm, cool, and collected. Which sadly means we’re suppressing a LOT of our wild impulses. The voyage begins with intentional somatic exercises, gently anchoring you into the sanctuary of your internal self. Nurturing and regulating your nervous system, and paving the way for a full-body shake experience. And then we shake. Shake to re-wild and un-tame our natural impulses. Shake to cast off suppressed experiences that live in the body. Shake to unlock boundless reservoirs of trapped energy within. Your hips and core, revered as the sanctuaries of untapped potential, will be a main focus, so YES ... Flow Space Yoga and Arts, 117 NW 16 Avenue, Gainesville.

October’s workshop focuses on how we physically communicate consent. We’ll practice saying no, yes, yes and - through our bodies. We’ll explore ways to invite another into a dance and how to read responses through body language. In addition to recognizing that consent can change in every moment of our dance ...
