Soul Motion™ is a Conscious Dance practice, designed by Vinn Marti.
This practice is about waking up to your most essential nature.
The only discipline it requires is to show up and be true to the part of ourselves that is committed to moving.
Embracing Soul Motion™ as a dancing meditation practice is an effective way to free the body, to express the heart, and to empty out the mind.
When coming from that place of being connected with your essence, the soul is empowered and you can experience your most expansive and liberated self.

Join us for weekly classes with Valerie Chafograck in Berkeley, and workshops at other locations in California and abroad.

In a Soul Motion™ class, we dancers, move across four relational landscapes, using three points of views.

The Landscapes

Dance Intimate…. we move alone, solo.
Dance Communion… we move with one other, duet.
Dance Community… we move with everyone.
Dance Infinite… we move our practice to the everyday life.

Dance Intimate: We explore our relationship with the body as a dancing shape field moving in space.

Dance Communion: The dancer begins to open his (her) field to association and inspiration to one other.

Dance Community: Dancers begin to move in ever widening circles, receiving, giving information and inspiration to the larger dance happening all around them. This landscape is an invitation to see how we are all connected.

Dance Infinite: What happens on the dance room is a practice for the everyday dance in the living world. We move out from the dance room with an opportunity to send outward all benefit. we may have received.


Three Points of View

Pause Presence: It is a place of quiet alertness. A practice that allows the dancer to relax, slow down and restore.

Orbit Orientation: The dancer is encouraged to consciously move in all directions with equal attention and without preference.

Echo Inspiration: The dancers are guided to use each other’s dance to inform and inspire them. It is a constant personal contribution to the pool of movement choices.
