Kai Earth Immersion - Sarasota "on site training"


Kai Immersions are a vacation into your body.  Awaken more pleasure, Joy, dance and explore! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!  About 50% take the immersions for personal enrichment...

 It's a special time of leaving behind everyday "distraction" and focusing on YOUR body.  You'll explore 7 Kai "bubbles" that include Awareness, Music, Anatomy, Archetypes, The Elements, Authentic Movement and  LIfe as a Dance,  This first layer of training is called "earth" with the intention of embodiment......through awakening more sensory information and opening the dialogue of body/mind communication.  Future trainings will follow as elements of Water, Fire, Air and more. At least a year of experience between trainings is recommended but not necessary.  The Earth Immersion is held two times per year and is open to EVERYONE!

 Most people taking this training do it for personal and discover through the process their deeper desire to share the work or NOT.  Over 50% take it for personal , and enjoy the "retreat" within........a vacation "within" .   It is truly a journey we go on through Kai's "bubbles" ........

The fee is $750.00 and includes 80 page manual, journal, elegant opening dinner, 40 hours of in depth, hands on training, and lots of unique magical moments for each group, certificate of completion,  monthly newsletter chocked full of inspiration and the ability to become a teacher if you wish. 

If you want to be a teacher you can start then with letter of intent.  Teachers may purchase the choreography packets which include music, notes and choreography for $35 per bow ( There is now 5 to choose from including Ubuntu, Bubbles, You-Neek, TRIBE, River of Gratitude) , and pay $250 yearly ( or $25 per month) certification fee that  allows you to share the work, use the logo, be listed on Kai's website and have access to lots of support via FB closed circle group for graduates.  Another benefit is you may audit 3 "bubbles" for free- FOREVER or retake the full immersion for $400 ( It can be a seasonal "cleanse" or "re-connect" to your dance! 

Teachers are considered "apprentices" for the first year, as they learn more about the work and reach "teacher" status after the first year and videoing themselves teaching a class to be sent in for review and feedback.  Up to 10 hours of personal coaching with creator Kelly Atkins is included ( this is a $1,000 value) in your first year licensing fee.   A total of 10 continuing education units must be obtained each year.  Continuing education units can be obtained and approved thru Kai for documenting and blogging about your classes, reading and writing about a topic related to Kai, exploring workshops and more.   Documentation of 10 cue's and the videoing of facilitating a Kai class must be sent to Kelly the first year to move into "facilitator " status.
