12. ULTIMATE StoryTelling Experience through Indian Yoga and dance
You may have heard the story…..Seen the story being acted out…..
You may have even participated in parts of the story…..
But Holistic Interactive Story-Telling using Yoga and Dance by Shanthi
is taking the art of storytelling to new heights…
The audiences are not merely listeners or viewers here
with occasional singing, or hand clapping or feet tapping
or answering questions or acting or volunteering….
The audiences are a powerful force behind the story,
repeating every word of the story, using Indian “Bharatanatyam” dance moves,
embellishing it with all aspects of the authentic Indian Yoga…
The audiences experience the story like never before,
totally on their feet, using every limb, every finger, every facial muscle,
they develop coordination, balance, fine motor skills and focus….
During the story they meditate, practice breathing techniques,
do Yoga postures, talk about health, sing songs about life,
holistic in every possible way…. Learning posture names in an ancient Indian language “Sanskrit”
they broaden the linguistic skills with a brilliant training for the mind….
It is a three dimensional experience where
they hear, see, narrate, feel, understand, express and experience the story….
Challenging them to keep pace with the movements and gestures
they create a mood of vibrancy, energy and enthusiasm….
Transforming briefly into objects, creatures, animals and birds,
they become more connected to all that exist in the universe….
It is engaging, exercising, educational, yet entertaining
not just for kids or teens, but for adults too….
Physically stretching, Emotionally calming, Intellectually stimulating,
Academically enriching, Socially bonding, and Spiritually elevating,
It can’t get any better…
It is indeed the HOLISTIC and the ULTIMATE Story Experience
