By connecting the mind, body, and breath, yoga possesses the 1mique ability to unlock a dancer's potential as a performer and ultimately, a communicator both with their surroundings and within. It is human nature to constantly search for new perspective and insight; yoga produces this from what those individuals already bring to the table. Yoga requires a rootedness to the earth and feeds off surrounding life. Using yoga as the introductory vessel, the dancers lose themselves in effort, energy, and movement through space. Their heightened awareness allows them to improvise from a different approach; not as strictly as dancers, not as pedestrians, but somewhere in between. Two bodies practicing side by side are not only flowing together. They are dancing together.
