my body was shaking as i told my Airbnb host that i was canceling my stay and leaving her place a week early. without going into detail, the few days i stayed there was very triggering and the experience had a strong impact on my body. some of the symptoms included nausea for three days straight. i knew that i needed to dance because it’s one of the fastest ways for me to return to myself. and since one of the reasons i came to new york was to participate in a dance intensive, the opportunity couldn’t have been more timely. long story medium 😝 the first two classes i took back to back resurrected my joy to the point where tears came to my eyes, but i held back in attempts to stay present with the movement. during the second class there were moments where i was afraid to trust my body with learning a new technique. my instructor noticed moments of struggle and at the end of class he gave us a short inspirational talk which concluded with, “dance is like love, you have to have no fear in order to fully receive it.” something about those words penetrated my heart and this time there was no holding back the tears softly flowing down my face. i went to the restroom and that’s when i really let it out — one of them ugly, snotty, body shaking cries. and i could tell i was releasing mixed tears. on one hand i felt my body releasing fear, sadness, grief, anger and pain from what i had been going thru and the rest were tears of blissful joy. i truly felt transformed from moving my body and i just continue to be in awe of what this art form does for me. dance is a gift that continues to not only elevate my spirit-body but also provides memory of who and what i am. i‘ve been processing some of my recent challenges with a few loved ones, which has been great, but my body needed a separate process. a way to physically release, shift and embody a higher vibration, which is what i’m still feeling now. movement is a holy nutrient and it continues to feed me in life-giving ways, whether it’s thru a dance class or creative expression. i’m in deep gratitude for the healing medicine it always provides 🙏🏾 ... continued in comments ..... #improv #healingthroughmovement #SheHealHer 💕

@pooja_alagan (16 days)Someone before you probably used the space to smoke Meth etc. One of the symptoms of Meth infested space is extreme nausea and malaise. I hope you get better.
