"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

Set up the sacred space in which you practice. Use your lines of energy and alignment to further that sense of sacredness, and to feel the unique geometry of your very own body. Transit and flow, twirl and twist from dancing shivas to warriors and one leg standing poses, bringing focus to movement and balance. The 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. You are geometry!
