Yoga Vacation Program
November 7 — 10, 2025

Dance for the Soul

A Vedic Dance Approach to Seeking Balance and Harmony in Daily Life

Vallari Kshirsagar

This program will focus on the emotions of joy and love and how they transcend into devotion through the use of hand gestures, facial expressions and body movements. We’ll use the Indian Classical Dance of Bharatnatyam as the foundation for our movement experience. You’ll learn a set of choreographed steps which can be used as a movement guideline. Experience a new way of moving your body through a dance form rooted in Ayurvedic principles. Learn ways to nourish your body, rejuvenate your mind, and bring a higher level of consciousness to your movement. It will be an exercise in expanding our movement vocabulary and elevating our journey of personal growth and development. Rediscover your energy, flexibility, strength, balance and resilience.

This is a series of interactive workshops where participants will be free to express their emotions through body movement, breathwork, and balance. The dancing portion of the workshop will be a blend of soft vedic music that explores more subtle emotions combined with high energy music that can act as an exercise in exploring some of the high-energy emotions. The music itself will be a combination of traditional Indian tunes, instrumental pieces, and fast-paced songs.

Offered as 2 satsangs and 3 workshops (subject to change).

The presentations associated with this Yoga Vacation Program begin with an 8pm satsang on the first day of the program and conclude with a 90-minute noon workshop on the last day of the program.  Click here to read more about the Yoga Vacation Program details and view the ashram schedule for yoga classes and meals during your stay.
