Though the phrase ‘Silk Road’ has a more mythical than historical reference, it connotes some of the mystery, allure and deep nuance in the dances from this part of the world, stretching from India through all the “Stans” (Afghanistan, Tajikistan, East Turkestan, Uzbekistan) through Persia and beyond. As a Fulbright Scholar in Dance with decades of personal experience dancing in these countries, Tara brings you the authentic flavors of dance from each of these regions, while mixing in the spice of her own signature approach. 

Tara draws you along on her fascinating dance journey through the lands of Central Asia in this continually evolving class. Enjoy learning unusual footwork, hand and head gestures that you may never otherwise be exposed to. No matter what other dance styles you may be acquainted with, Tara’s masterful expressivity and precision will seep into and uplift your body and soul.

This class rotates week by week on a 4 spoke cycle, focusing on: 

  • Musical receptivity & creativity for dancers: interpretation of odd & even rhythm patterns
  • Personal expression & commanding space: staccato stops, isolation, body alignment for dance 
  • Strength & rooted movement: nuanced foot & hand execution
  • Fluidity & float: spirals with the spine & dynamic spin sequences.

For months with 5 Wednesdays, you’ll get a Silk Road surprise focus for the last week!

Tara Pandeya

The daughter of a dancer, Tara Pandeya has gained world recognition as a dance performer, teacher and choreographer, as well as a scholar and cultural activist dedicated to the promotion of dance forms from Central Asia. Tara worked as a principal dancer with Cirque du Soleil and is the first westerner to perform with Lola, the National Ensemble of Tajikistan. Tara has performed & created dance programming in over 35 countries. 

She balances her work as a practitioner with theoretical work, conducting dance research through the Rockefeller Foundation & CECArtslink in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, East Turkestan, Pakistan, India and Russia. Most recently, she has created original dance works for UNESCO, the Bauhaus Festival & at Royal Albert Hall. Tara holds an MA in Dance Anthropology from London’s Roehampton University and is a 2019-20 Fulbright Scholar. Her solo work has been featured on BBC, in the New York Times and in Dance Magazine.

Dancing with Tara, you will also gain an understanding of folklore and cultural traditions through dance gestures, aesthetic theories, musicality and intention. Along with gaining exposure to traditional dance practices through a system of ‘kinetic orality’, you will also learn to analyze your own movement patterns and ways of moving in your unique anatomy.

Jivamukti is a physically and intellectually stimulating vinyasa style of yoga that integrates the physical, philosophical and spiritual aspects of yoga. Like ashtanga yoga, Jivamukti yoga can include hands-on assists to help students find alignment – only with students’ consent, of course. Classical yoga teachings, drawn from a monthly focus, stream through the class in a way that is relevant to modern day life. Each class grounds itself in 14 key elements and involves Sanskrit, chanting, teachings, and flowing asana sequences set to uplifting music, with meditation and a deep relaxation to close. 

Jivamukti Yoga is a thorough, vigorous vinyasa practice whose teachers adhere to five tenets: ahimsa (non-violence), bhakti (devotion), meditation, nada (sacred sound), and study of yogic texts. 

Sarah McTee

Whether small or large, Sarah’s classes feel personal and create a safe environment to let your true self shine through, providing a path to apply yoga in your everyday life. Like many who practice at the Still & Moving Center, Sarah is an ocean-loving yogi. She moved to Hawaii in 2002 to attend graduate school at UH, specializing in coral reef ecology. When life subsequently carried her to the east coast she was introduced to, and became a dedicated student of, the Jivamukti style of yoga. Studying with the founders, David Life and Sharon Gannon, and under the rigorous and inspiring mentorship of Andrea Boyd, Sarah received her certification to teach Jivamukti in 2011. Since then, Sarah has augmented her yoga practice and teachings with the study of massage therapy.
