5 Benefits of Conscious Freestyle Dance

How can freestyle, Sober dance help you?



1. Increased body-mind-emotion connection. Your body, mind and emotions are not separate. They’re all connected and work together.



We can see this in how our bodies respond to stress (blood pressure, digestion /stomach, heart issues etc) and the increase in stress-related illness. Understanding, and working with, that connection leads to improved health and wellbeing.


2. Reduces stress and anxiety.


Through increasing production of happy hormones; endorphins, serotonin and oxytocin (the bonding hormone, not produced by all exercise forms).


This can produce an ecstatic natural high!


Conscious freestyle dance also activates the parasympathetic nervous system.




3. Boosts #creativity and #brainhealth .


In studies at Stanford Uni it was found to be the most efficient activity in preventing #dementia in elders.


It also creates new neural pathways and helps us to see things from a creative, problem-solving perspective. If you’re an artist, this kind of dance can feed inspiration.




4. Empowerment, confidence and body positivity.


Helps you feel confident to dance without worrying about who’s looking or there being a ‘right’ way to move.


One of our biggest barriers is what others think and what’s expected of us. Focusing on what you want to express through your body is empowering!


There’s no ‘shoulds’ in this form of dance. You connect to how your body wants to move in any given moment.



5. Helps release stagnant emotion and traumas.


Trauma is stored in the subconscious mind and the body.


So it’s difficult to address it through therapies that only work with the conscious mind.


Trauma and old emotions/patterns can be released effortlessly when we let the body and it’s energies take over.



Bonus benefit: it’s amazing #cardio and I bet it’s more fun than your spin class
