Kai provides a cardio workout and also integrates meditation, yoga, and the freedom of play in a one hour class. No dance experience is necessary. It is adaptable for all fitness levels, all ages, men and women and is designed to integrate body and mind.
Build community, stimulate the brain and develop a deep level of health and fitness that is integrated and whole.
Workshops deepen your understanding and embodiment of the work. Usually 2 hours in length and allowing for time to ask questions, learn the "why we do what we do", and get comfortable with the practice.
Kai Immersion are the extended work that is held over 4-5 days. For those interested in teaching or for personal. Spend some time "out of distraction" and learning the nuts and bolts of what makes Kai so special as well as tools to make your dances more profound.
Retreats are a week in a beautiful natural setting. Taking Kai daily and exploring RETREAT as a way to re-energize and take a "booster" of self care. Great way to "fill up your cup" for all the ways you give to others all year long.
There are currently 73 graduates of the Earth Immersion training over the last 3 years coming from Florida, Texas, California, Oregon, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New York, New Hampshire, as well as countries Canada, Turkey, Russia and the Czech Republic. Consider taking a training and bringing it to your area! Trainings are offered both "on site" and as LDL ( long distance learning) option.
