Introducing a Brand-New program in the works NOW! This will be a refined program specifically designed for "home dancers" longing to deepen their body and self-love and their healing without leaving home:
The KAI EARTH-Immersion HOME DANCE RETREAT
Available ONLINE from ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
This is an online personal retreat designed to help you re-connect to your body, celebrate more body-love and to have a home practice of dance.
Looking for a dance program you can do at home? Interested in learning ways to feel more comfortable in your skin, moving, dancing and increasing your joy? This is a great program to unlock the rich resource that is YOUR BODY and condition it from a place of love. No experience is needed, you'll learn from YOUR BODY; the program ( the same type of program used in Universities) is created artfully to satisfy all kinds of learners and to explore your body, mind, spirit and emotions thru dance. You log in when you are ready and the program keeps track of your progress.
Earth Immersion Online can be done at your own pace over a weekend or over months. It's the same material offered onsite, although it’s done through videos online— and through conference calls. The program is offered in an educational format that is utilized by universities and yet has a very "alive" and engaging feel. You'll participate in the online group through mixed media, audio and video, as well as by reading, doing exercises on your own, writing, sharing, and participating in group teleconference calls. Though a group will start together, everyone will complete the program at different times. You'll still have your group to tap into and learn from as well.

WHAT IS IT?
Time out for YOU. Your soul. To restore, re-connect within and explore movement as an empowering tool that makes you more creative and feel more nurtured.
Kai Earth Immersion Retreats are offered "on-site" as 4-day journeys into dance. You'll leave behind everyday "distractions" and focus more intimately on your body—via sensation, movement, dance, and community. The map into this celebration follows the "body" of Kai thru it's 7 uniquely effective foundational concepts: And we do not overlook the importance of the BRAIN....we explore in-depth how movement stimulates different areas or our brains, generating awareness and bliss. Also covered in the Retreats are authentic movement, embodied anatomy, the elements of nature as an energizer— and more. No experience is necessary!
Kai Retreats are open to EVERYONE of all ages and all abilities, ( The youngest participant so far was 22 and the eldest 80) who join in for all kinds of personal reasons. This is NOT a teachers’ training. ( For enthusiastic, future teachers, check-out the new, 200-hour, year-long Embodied Facilitator Training section of this site. )

Water Immersion: Optional Second Level Class,(Workshop?) with Themes of Communication, Connection and Creativity
Water is the second layer (of??) and focuses (symbolizes?) more on movement, pleasure, flow and communication. Once we've established the "container" of the body, the next natural inclination is to move, create and connect—.to experience pleasure in the body, and to allow that to support movement. This training is open to ANYONE, with no prior experience necessary!
You will leave with skills that will (enable you to?…love your body) expand into loving your body, your mind, your emotions and your spirit—and, thru this connection, you will create amazing things and experience greater joy together with your (new?) community, utilizing Kai's nurturing and powerful tools. You will experience 5 days of juicy fun and lots of movement magic; what’s more, you will make blissful, wonderful connections (with your classmates/fellow students?) that will last for a long time after you complete the training.
