Unwind + Grind:
The Official Divine Booty Shaking Experience With April Axé Charmaine
May 4, 2018 |6:30-9:00pm
Unwind + Grind is a movement experience. Class begins with a warm up in the round, participants are encouraged to make any move their own. Group Across-the-floor section follows with original Sol Vida technique that will give you a new vocabulary of dance moves inspired from West African, Egyptian, Afro-Brazilian, Hip Hop, and Latin dance that are infused with a personal, embodied, sultry flair. Mixing up the power of get-in-your-bones dance music and intentional movement, class will end with a free movement section where participants can completely let go and experience the power of Unwind + Grind, allowing your inner goddess to shake it and shine, surrendering all the way to the end where we spend time restoring and integrating all the beautiful work.
To unwind is to unravel, to relax after a period of tension. To grind is to connect with the divine feminine, the womb, our core and its infinite connection to the larger universe.
Class is followed by an optional wine-luck (bring chocolate, wine, snacks to share).

“Unwind and Grind is something special – the only dance class I have experienced that is not about how you appear, but rather how you feel in your body.”
