The Dragon Dance is a blend of Indian and Daoist yoga, designed to stimulate and remove blockages to the flow of energy (prana or chi) through directed awareness, the breath and vigorous movements. It is a whole-body flow that will challenge your ego. Flexibility is not just a physical quality; we also need flexible minds. Learning the dance will challenge you mentally and will hopefully build neural plasticity in the brain.
Once you experience the dragon’s fire (you have reached this stage when you begin to sweat), the dance will enter the yin phase, holding each position for a few breaths initially, followed by holds of a few minutes and longer, to strengthen the joints, and increase flexibility and self-awareness.
The final relaxation will allow the body to marinate in the juicy energies that you stimulated, which will enhance the healing and strengthening process within you.
This flow is inspired by my teachers, Paul and Suzee Grilley and Bernie Clark. I am honoured and grateful to be able to share their teachings with you.
