Program Description

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

    Founder of Soul Motion® and conscious dance teacher

    Vinn Arjuna Martí 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, and curious. He specifically uses sensory body movement, and 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, Vinn Arjuna has an ability to charm and disarm his students. A sensitive yet wild man, Vinn Arjuna 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.
