Natural Awakenings New York City

Shake Your Soul® Classes at New York Open Center

Odelia Shargian of Movement Bliss Studio will offer a weekly class, Shake Your Soul®: Dance for Your Health, Thursdays in August, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the New York Open Center.

Shargian, a Shake Your Soul® (SYS) instructor and teacher trainer in NYC and Tenafly, New Jersey, says the technique is suitable for all fitness levels. Based in integrative dance, meditative movement and mindfulness, SYS is designed as both a health practice and a spiritual practice, she says.

“This class helps people rediscover their instinct to move and dance with soul and passion,” she explains. “The movements release innate feelings of joy, power, freedom and grace, so the dancers experience a renewal of spirit and connection to their soul as their body guides them toward self-expression and aliveness. Shake Your Soul is a dynamic dance experience that transforms and heals.”

SYS includes simple, easy-to-follow moves influenced by different movement forms and set to inspirational world music. As a result, it calms the nervous system, energizes the body and elevates the spirit, she says.
