BodyDance™ classes and meditations provide an opportunity to deeply explore and connect with oneself from the inside-out while discovering and developing personal intuitive body knowledge, and reclaiming embodied trust.
Each BodyDance™classes and meditations begin with experiential embodied anatomy, guided creative visualization and insightful awareness of basic natural rhythms, cycles and patterns. Through heightened awareness of sensing and feeling, new embodied consciousness, knowledge and relationships emerge for exploration, expression and empowerment. Alisa will guide you through the chakra-glandular centers, stimulating central core energy—kundalini—with the synthesis of dance, sound, meridian yoga stretch, creative movement and breath.
Learn the embodied approach of activating, strengthening and integrating glandular-hormone activity while balancing the nervous system; supporting and combating stress and anxiety, and developing your own embodied presence practice.

- BodyDance™ 5Elements
- BodyDance™ Waves and Pulses
- BodyDance™ EmpowerCORE

BodyDance™ Girl Circle
BodyDance Girl Circle is a 7-week YogaDance class inviting girls to co-create an expressive arts circle through dance, sound, poetry, and visual arts in a non-judgmental container.
Each week embodied explorations will focus on core chakra blossoming and alignment. Together we will explore our unique sensations and feelings to activate, strengthen, balance, integrate, and express ourselves from the inside out. Inspired by nature’s cycles, rhythms and patterns, and the five elements (water, wood, fire, earth, metal) we will develop new ways of being in relationship with our bodies.
BodyDance Girl Circle can also be experienced as a 9-month program that takes place for a full weekend day on a monthly basis.
