Looking for music to play during a Kundalini Yoga kriya that calls for dancing? Searching for a yoga dance playlist? There are a number of Kundalini Yoga kriyas that call for dancing. Sometimes there will be dancing in the middle of a yoga set and other times it will be at the end. One may wonder why there would be dancing in a yoga class and what significance it has to the kriya.
Everyone has their own relationship with dancing. Beginners to Kundalini Yoga may feel awkward about the idea while others fully embrace it. The uncomfortable feeling may arise from worrying if others are watching you, thinking you are not a good dancer, etc. Regardless of the reason, dancing can tell us a lot about ourselves and also can be very healing. Dancing doesn’t need to have to do with anyone else, but with your own self.
Dancing is a meditative state like any other healing forms. It is helpful in facilitating the feeling of letting go and joyfulness. Dancing also creates a feeling of emancipation, restores flow, strengthens intuition and awakens creativity. It is hard to dance when you are thinking. Dancing forces one to internally listen and react from a place of neutrality.
When in doubt, there is an old saying that goes something like, “When you take the ‘E’ out of the word ’emotion’, you get, ‘motion.’” Whenever you are feeling blocked, contracted, stuck, or overly emotional; creating movement through dance can help get the energy flowing again.
