gently unravels the knots both mental and physical, giving the body a sense
of comfort in its movement. This slow build up is easy to follow. You will
discover the physical freedom found through dynamic flow and alignment,
allowing access to deeper movements later on without pain or stress on the
body. Named after the Vedic sage, Narada who believed that wisdom and
enlightenment could be gained with clarity and grace, through music, dance
and movement. He is also appreciated for having a good sense of humor.
