Soul Motion®

Freedom to Soar

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Soul Motion will transform the way you move across the room and the way you move through your life.

In Soul Motion sessions—guided by master teacher and choreographer Vinn Arjuna Martí—we come together to practice an embodied state of living and being on and off the dance floor. We cultivate relaxation in the body and create opportunities to enjoy the ease of expression, the abundance of creativity, and the naturalness of grace. We ground ourselves in the dances of spaciousness, relationships, and sacredness.

In a dancing space of laughter and learning, we pause in the presence of silence to listen deeply, orient our dance to the view that everything is shifting, and open to inspiration from everything that surrounds us.

In this joyful movement experience, you will learn:

  • The power of being present in each moment
  • A conscious dance practice with facilitated and unscripted movement
  • Principles for living a more open, relaxed, and creative life
  • To access your relationship with the divine spark that animates us all.

Soul Motion is a dance of remembering your song. You will soar high above any tension and constriction that holds you fixed in views about dance, grace, expression, and being enough. You will jump feet first into openness and curiosity. Soul Motion invites us to experience the excitement, energy, and enlivened presence that dances us all. Got it? Good. Let’s dance!

Faculty Bio

Vinn Arjuna Martí
Vinn Arjuna Marti melds spiritual teachings, philosophy, deep body awareness and kick ass dance to create a conscious awareness of the body and the soul.
His work is playful, deep, reverent, curious, and he specifically uses sensory body movement, somatic, visceral, and reflective landscapes in his teachings. Referencing all different “wisdom traditions” and artists, his spicy, raunchy Bronx boy flavor is charismatic, mischievous and immediate and his own reflective practice brings a
humbleness and self irony that is refreshing and appealing.
Somebody who meditates in the morning, moans at the news, and moves as the mystery, Arjuna has this ability to charm and disarm his students. A sensitive yet wild manArjuna is a master of movement ritual who supports his students in listening to their bodies, as a pathway to understanding their inner critics and inhibitions.”

Why Attend

  • Be spontaneous and notice the beauty, wisdom, and connection that arise from following your moment-to-moment impulses.

  • Let go of any fears of dancing and allow the energy of community, music, and compassion to energize, open, and soften you.
