Chakradance on mahtava väline päästä oman kehon ja tunteiden yhteyteen luovalla ja hauskalla tavalla. Tanssissa voi vain nauttia itsestä ja musiikista tai tehdä tutkimusmatkaa omiin tunteisiin, energiohin ja sisäsiin aarteisiin. Chakradance on ravintoa sielulle. ”

"Chakradance is a great tool to connect with your own body and emotions in a creative and fun way. In dance, you can just enjoy yourself and the music or explore your own emotions, energies and inner treasures. Chakradance nourishes the soul."

-Chakradance™ Participant

The retreat is open for five to eight beautiful souls for the cost of 1750€ per person. Payment plans are available on request. Deposit of 250€ to secure your spot.
