About this Event

Integral Flow is a holistic dance practice that embraces a “whole person” approach to movement. Each session is a journey through the terrain of the body, heart, mind, and spirit. The practice opens with embodied rituals, infused with heart-centric gesture and intention, and then progresses to core movement essentials that explore healthy alignment, core strength, spinal fluidity, somatic awareness, and focused breath practices. On the dance floor we experience gratitude and humility, moving like water, embracing both subtlety and intensity with our movement expressions.

The Integral Flow series (based on Integral Dance) focuses on keeping a constant movement flow throughout class to access deeper layers of physicality, creativity, and release. Sequences are interspersed with guided improvisation and freestyle. Inspiration is drawn from various world dance traditions, contemporary dance, and the movement of circles, spirals, and cycles that we find within the physical, energetic, and universal body. This practice is open to all levels of experience and ability, with modifications always welcomed!

This class will take place in-person at The Alembic and will also be streamed on Zoom for remote attendees. There is ample parking at the Alembic, and doors will lock at 10:30am so please arrive on time.

$65 for original series (May - June 4)

$20 for drop-in class

Additional class added on June 11! Drop-in tickets available.

Integral Flow classes will be on pause for the summer after June 11

Miriam Peretz is an internationally celebrated dancer who has devoted her life to creating transformational experiences for her students and audiences worldwide. Miriam’s work is focused on the healing art of dance and empowering individuals through movement, ritual and community building. Over the course of her lifetime career, she has developed two signature dance format’s, Nava Dance and Integral Dance. Both formats embrace Miriam’s belief in the potential of movement and dance to facilitate physical, spiritual, and emotional healing. These formats weave together many years of training in traditional dance forms, as well as contemporary dance and somatic practices.

Miriam has traveled extensively teaching her formats at retreat centers, dance schools, and festivals throughout California, the Middle East and Europe. Miriam holds an MFA from Mills College of California and is a certified Pilates instructor. Regarded as a weekly ritual by her students, Miriam’s classes offer a fully integrated journey through the terrain of the body, heart, mind and spirit. Miriam sees dance as a uniquely powerful means of expressing deep emotion and spiritual yearning, and therefore the perfect embodiment of prayer.
