About the event

After an amazing event in the Sacred Valley of Peru, Sydney and I are bringing SPIRITUS DANCE to Chicago!!! We are so very excited for our community to experience the merging of breath and dance within a sacred container. 

Join us on a journey into the heart, mind, body and soul through the sacred weaving between breath & dance. Breathwork as a healing modality is as an inward journey into the deepest parts of our being that need deep healing and attention. Dance as a healing modality is an outward movement and expression to feel, release, embrace, and embody the parts of us that need healing and attention. Merging breathwork and dance creates a dynamic sacred union and profound healing experience.


As we begin the practice we will let our breath guide us deep into our bodies to come to an understanding of the power of our inner guidance and knowing, allowing our breath to be our primary dance partner. And as we let our bodies feel our breath as its guide, we will begin to feel the power of moving and dancing with our breath. This sacred union of breath and dance will open up our hearts to explore the profound connection with ourselves and others in the dance space creating an evening of transformation and healing.
