Journey Dancing My A$$ Off!

I hope you had a lovely weekend! Mine was quite fabulous, thank you.

On Sunday I had the pleasure of going to the West Side Pure Yoga  (OMG, have you been to that place? It’s drop dead GORGEOUS!) for a workshops where I danced, hardcore, for 2 straight hours. Incredible DJ, fun people, free-form dancing, letting my freak flag fly, sweating more than I have in ages. Sound up your alley?

This, my friends, is Journey Dance, created by the amazing Toni Bergins. To take Toni’s class–let alone be in the same room as she–is magical. She has the most incredible, abundant, radiating energy I have ever experienced. Sorry to get woo-woo on you, but it’s true.

So, what IS Journey Dance? According to the website:

JourneyDance is a grooving celebration that will have you loving your body and loving your life! Weaving simple, guided movement sequences and free exploration, JourneyDance reconnects you with your innate state of joyous well-being. Your mind becomes clear, free, and positive, and your body feels supple, energized, and powerful. Practiced to inspiring world music, your dance is an empowering journey to self-acceptance and transformation.

And if you’re still confused, check out this Youtube video to see a class in action.

I highly recommend signing up on the website so you won’t miss out on Toni’s next New York adventure (she rarely comes to NYC!). Oh, and btw, this is an fantastic entire body is sore, but in the “good” sore type of way.

    Ha! Just got back from Pure Yoga! I didn’t hear Journey Dance was coming. I’ll admit the description doesn’t sound up my alley, it sounds scary. I’m not one to “let it go” or dance. I am not saying no though. I’m just getting my feet wet with yoga, in time maybe I too will Journey Dance. In the meantime, glad you enjoyed it!

      Lauren, Pure Yoga is insane. That eucalyptus steam room was amazing. Sigh. I have 2 free passes so I’ll be back! I think Journey Dance (and Nia) appeal to me so much because I’m a go-go-go Type A woman most of the time, and this allows me to take a complete break and just be..well, me. The first time I did it, I felt silly, but it’s such a supportive environment. Quite beautiful to see people in their element, just being them. Perhaps next time you’ll join me and let YOUR freak flag fly!
