About Loona dance
Loona Dance is an experiential dance concept, a dance of the moon (luna), a Temple dance which can also be called the dance of the womb. While dancing there is great concentration on our pelvis (our alchemical cauldron, grail), our uterus (women's centre of power, creativity, instinctive intuition) our feelings (contact with the heart) and the present moment (be aware of the body, not the mind only ). To achieve this, Loona dance includes dance games, simple repetitive movements – monomovements, which develop the right hemisphere, bring us into a state of relaxation, peace, into our centre, and draw our attention to ourselves, our body, to perceiving oneself and one's inner feelings which we experience while dancing. Loona dance connects us with our inner guide - intuition. It is a meditation through dance.
The dance activates and relaxes the whole pelvic area and the pelvic floor, it gives a gentle massage and stimulation to women's organs. While dancing, it clears the pathway for the blood supply, hormones, and the free flow of energy. It helps with blood circulation and bringing oxygen and heat to the ovaries and uterus.
Loona dance also strengthens the legs, supports lymph circulation and forms the body into a more feminine shape.
The spiral movements and similar movements in the pelvic area help release pain in the hips, lumbar and sacral part of the vertebrae.
The energetic and emotional part:
The dance concept also takes into account the energetic wave of lunar / female cycle, ie. the archetypes of the Maiden, the Mother, the Enchantress, and the Crone (or wise woman) - qualities available to every woman. It consciously develops femininity in all its forms - dynamics, allure, tenderness, playfulness, frailty, support, love, sensuality, gentility, wildness, sex-appeal, creativity, power, compassion, and solidarity. It helps us to realize and distinguish the feminine and masculine features (the masculine ones being usually more visibile and used more often nowadays) within ourselves . This helps us to understand ourselves and our lives better, and to manifest these qualities in conscious and creative ways in our everyday life. Loona dance increases the awareness of oneself... above everything else.
Loona dance releases suppressed emotions and blocks from our cellular memory into consciousness so that they can disappear for once. The vivid pelvic area brings joy, strength, energy, courage, and vitality to our system. Loona dance provides grounding and strengthens the 1st and 2nd chakra, which helps us to deal with fear or anxiety.
Why dance of the womb?
If our body is a temple, then the womb is its altar.
With the dance of the womb, contact with our body and feelings we cultivate our femininity, strengthen the contact with ourselves, and also get in touch with the female collective strength, which provides energy. It is also beneficial for the health of the female reproductive organs. If we want to cultivate our femininity, it is necessary to start from the source, which is the womb.
The womb is:
- fundamentally connected to our femininity, feminine qualities
feminine and sexual energetic centre – it affects our sexuality, itis a source of power, creativity, and in other words it is the owen of the body
- so-called: emotional sponge (psychosomatic) - from the perspective of the Tao philosophy (M. Piontek) the womb (uterus) absorbs the emotions which were not consciously experienced and were suppressed and stored in our system. The emotions are especially related to topics such as sexuality, acceptance of femininity in general, motherhood, partner and family relationships, traumatic birth-giving.
These unprocessed emotions should be released from the uterus, otherwise they might later on result in gynecological diseases, such as frequent infections, mycoses, cysts, fibroids, infection, cancer, etc., or menstrual problems.
PREVENTION IS IMPORTANT = TO HAVE CONTACT WITH OUR WOMB TO TAKE CARE OF IT
By releasing these emotions we restore our strength and bring life into our uterus. It gives us vitality, joy, creativity, femininity. It is important to give the womb our attention, regularly take care of and purify it. There are various techniques - eg. breathing, visualization, physical and energetic exercises, dance and voice excercises. In Loona dance lesson you will encounter all of this.
