What is Embodied Dance?
Meditation, Breathwork, Exercise, Dance, Energy work, Feminine Rising. This journey is an ascension through specific exercises and release techniques to increase the fluidity in the body and live a more pleasure filled existence. When we are embodied, we are radically true with our heart, spirit, and feelings. Everything wants to be felt, and it is the suppression of the feelings (because there are some that we think are wrong, bad , or unwelcome) that creates stagnation in the body, sickness in the mind and physical body (dis-ease). When these unexpressed feelings are present in the body, they block our channels and don't allow energy to flow the way it should. This prevents us from being able to fully access our creative potential because literally our creative life force energy is blocked from being expressed into the world, we end up feeling tired, stuck, uninspired, or losing passion. Once we can unstuck ourselves, clear our channels, and welcome energy and feelings to move through us freely, then we can access our full creative potential and unlock the deepest parts of our innate feminine wisdom and intuition. Once we are liberated in our authentic expression (living embodied) we return to trust in ourselves and surrender to the flow of life as it moves through us. We can then really tap into the magic of existence in full spectrum!
Embodied Dance Journey with Teresa Cisneros Monthly
Teresa Cisneros Bio:
Hello my name is Teresa, I’ve been a dancer and played sports since very young and have found movement to be the most effective way to reach a sense of liberation and easiest way to get out of my mind and into my body and spirit. I’ve recently traveled to Bali, Indonesia where I did my first yoga teacher training with Sattva Bali yoga and trained with Mana Mei Embodied Dance. This journey activated me on a whole other level of depth, I am now forever changed because now I too know how it feels to live in trust, to live in love. I am in the process to embody and open hearted leadership that can create a field for other humans to blossom!

A Poem by Mia- Inspired by Teresa’s Embodied Dance Journey
“ emotions and feelings are nothing but vibrations in our body that we have now labeled the clenching of the fist the tightness in the throat the frowning of the brow anger the weakness in our knees the fluid coming out of our eyes sadness certain vibrations like anxiety and excitement or actually very similar but the label makes them seem very different dance embodiment is a way to express these vibrations not their labeling or speaking but through movement and dance I attended this workshop and it was so so amazing I felt scene but away that I’ve never experienced before I was seen for me and my fluid movement of expression for my vulnerable sensual powerful state I was seeing for the woman the Lionesse the child the ballerina the curious the Child the creative one that I am and on top of that I had the honor to see other women and their faces too and to share this with them and to become a togetherness of kind of pack of wolves sexuality power and creativity is a force that we owe to our ancestors to set free.”
