Soul Motion™ at Madrona!
Soul Motion™, designed by Vinn Arjuna Martí is a celebration of creative attention and intention that blends individual and community at play in the dance. It's a facilitated movement journey that stays curious to both freedom and form. There are no steps to follow yet an inner voice and yearning for creative expression is always ready to take the next step. We practice. We cultivate presence. We open to the artistry and mastery of the unknown. Soul Motion™ is a conscious dance practice and philosophy that invites and entices the authentic voice of our being into our everyday lives (both on and off the dance floor).

Come as you are; no previous experience needed.
Give your soul some sweat equity for the upcoming week! SoulFul Sunday is a facilitated event that is offered every Sunday. Cultivating connection through rhythm, movement and community. .
- The dance is attended by a vibrant and diverse community of welcoming and friendly people, some of whom have practiced Soul Motion for years, while some ~ never before.
- The invitation is to cultivate your creative-form of expression, bring a curious spirit and a YES to deepening your connection with self, other, community and SOUL.
- The music is diverse—to engage a horizon of possibilities. The rhythm moment is unpredictable in what arrives.
- The community is the celebration. Take part as witness, as mover, as a beholder of the One-Dance.
"We are bodies and souls in motion giving birth to the renewal of possibilities and accompanying the death of that which no longer serves the opening hearts. With souls in motion we call forth the warrior within to stand guard to all the ways we block the awareness of love and joy’s presence."
We begin together at 10:00. Doors open by 9:40 AM. Please arrive early and stay for the whole event.
"And then exhale, relax, and, sweet one, be wise ~ cast all your votes for Dancing!"
(wise words shared by Zuza Engler - Transformative Dance - Soul Motion™ Faculty)
SoulFul Sunday is open to dancers 11 years and older.
Welcome is the time to connect. Please no lifts above hip height—for the safety of others.
The sanctuary of sound is held for the non-verbal opportunity to communicate with our somatic voice.
Movement as Meditation
Tuesdays - 8:00-9:15 a.m. ~ Aletia Alvarez
Come deepen your connection to self and other with this joyful morning movement class! Emphasis on breath awareness, and sequencing breath with movement. Flowing from one moment to the next with awareness that individual expression and creativity begins at home with our ability to occupy internal space. This is an ongoing class open to all and drop-ins.
We begin together—so please arrive at least five minutes early. Some mornings will incorporate a 10-minute silent (stillness/sitting) practice at the beginning of class. Other mornings we will incorporate a walking meditation or contemplative movement exercise as a way to initiate the class.
Movement Meditation is lightly facilitated—offering individuals the opportunity to deepen in their own personal practice while exploring creative expression, creative relationships and divine dialogue. No experience necessary.
This practice questions... How do I engage that vital spark of SOUL, listen with gentle courage and gratitude, and share it in an authentic voice with the world? One answer: Take a step and give it expression through movement. Morning classes provide meditative movement sessions to deepen in your own practice.
"As the years have passed I find a grand appreciation and deepening for this morning class. Originality seems fresh at the earlier hours... yet I find a receptiveness in the practitioners. They are awake to the day and ready to cultivate connection to self and other. It's as if we illuminate the path, alone—together as we wake up the day. I am continually surprised, amazed and humbled by the power of this simple practice and the landscapes we traverse in this Tuesday morning movement space." —Aletia Alvarez
About Soul Motion™
Rather than a dance class, Soul Motion is a facilitated inquiry into embodied consciousness through movement. Beginners are especially welcome reminding us to wake up out of our habitual patterns as we experiment with ourselves and with one another in this awkward and magnificent journey of self-discovery and belonging.
