"Every subatomic particle not only performs an energy dance, but also a pulsating process of creation and destruction…without end…For the modern physicists, then Shiva's dance is the dance of subatomic matter. As in Hindu mythology, it is a continual dance of creation and destruction involving the whole cosmos; the basis of all existence and of all natural phenomena."

 Fritzof Capra, The Tao of Physics

The cosmic dance of Shiva unifies ancient mythology, art, religion and modern physics. It symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction, the daily rhythm of birth and death, beginning and end. Like Shiva, dance in evil and sacred places and rhythm your own practice... or your universe. Transit and flow, twirl and twist from the death of an asana to the birth of another, bringing focus to movement as an infinity of "nows". Recognise the accountability of your intention: your dance preserves and releases, contracts and expands, roots and rises. Enjoy, my fellow yogis!
