In this video Hemalayaa shares one of her great inspirations with BIG Happy Day, The Devi Dasi.
The Devi Dasi were classically trained Indian dancers who danced for the Divine and incorporated mudra and gesture into their offering. Hemalayaa teaches us a flower petal mudra from the Devi Das to share the offering of humility and honor as we bow down at the feet of our Beloved.
Hemalayaa has shared her gift of joy, laughter and dance throughout the world: teaching workshops, classes & retreats in some of the most beautiful settings. Hema has a gift for bringing out the unique dancer in everyone, inspiring people to make dance part of their lives through the unity of Yoga and Indian Dance. Hemalayaa is the creator and author of numerous fitness DVDs that combine yoga and sacred dance with positive messages to transform lives. Her work has appeared in LA Yoga Magazine, Yogi Times, Fit Yoga, Yoga Journal and The New York Times. Hemalayaa has been seen shimmying with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show or strutting with the staff of the Today Show.
