what people are saying

Amara is a masterful teacher. She has constructed a sequence of inquiries that take us deeper into the truth that is unique to our self and universal at the same time.”

— Mary, USA

I never believed that I would learn embodiment online. Amara made it possible. Exploring the map of Azul through my body was a rich & powerful experience.”

— Karina, Romania

“Amara shares her unique gift to hold sacred space for each participant to be guided through a journey into the body to feel, express and release what no longer serves them.”

— Roberta, CT, USA

“I highly recommend this training, it is a space in which I felt so deeply held and seen and at the same time could deeply surrender and see the feminine, sheer magic was created.”
— Brian Segal, South Africa

“This is my first experience of embodiment. Seeing every one in their own dance reminded me how beautiful it is to be who you are to express yourself.”

— Miriam, Italy

why embodiment matters?

In our modern world we suffer from being disconnected from the wisdom of our body and our heart. Mostly driven by our thinking mind, we’ve lost touch with the resources we all have within to receive guidance, make good decisions, engage our souls learning and heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Embodied movement gives you a clear path to reconnect with your inner knowing and facilitates a union of your mind, body, heart and soul. From here you embark on a journey to reach your highest potential.

This 2 minute video will give you a flavor of the experience.

From my heart to yours…

Discover the transformative power of movement:

Azul Dance has the capacity to bring us into a state of embodiment with ease and grace. It naturally happens when we practice listening through our movements and following the body. This connection is simple but profound. It allows the different layers of body: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual to begin to find coherence so that our thoughts, feelings and actions are aligned.

Move the body to reach the heart:

In Azul we move the body to reach the heart. When the heart is open, the union between our humanity and divinity is able to be experienced in our lives. This is what we call embodied awakening. Azul Dance makes spirituality practical. 

This training ~ led by Azul founder Amara Pagano ~ offers an in-depth exploration of the Azul Spiral and focuses on gaining an embodied understanding of each of its components.

The Azul Spiral is a map of life that facilitates our evolutionary process and the awakening of consciousness. This map helps us move towards experiencing love in every aspect of our lives, expressing our gifts and realizing our highest potential.

exploring the Azul Spiral

The Azul Spiral Map is a journey towards embodied awakening, to free yourself from excessive thought and land your soul in your body.

We will explore the 10 points of the map to facilitate a deepening of your embodiment. You will receive a full body activation that gives you a blueprint of embodied awakening that you can apply and bring to all areas of your life.

The MOVEMENT MAP is a method designed to guide you through the 10 points of the Azul Spiral Map to accelerate your spiritual growth and evolution so that you can be a powerful force on the planet at this time.

meet Amara Pagano

I have been teaching movement as spiritual practice for 30+ years. I have guided thousands of people through a process of embodied awakening.

It’s been my work and passion my whole life. I began in my 20’s studying movement as a healing art and discovered Gabrielle Roth and the 5Rhythms.

I fell head over heels in love and immediately trained and built my work teaching internationally. I knew something was birthing through me – an evolution – and 10 years ago it happened. I was holding on tight to my identity as a 5R teacher but when I was finally able to let go, I birthed the work of Azul.

I had an experience where I received the AZUL SPIRAL MAP and a full transformational program. Azul is evolving and I continue to receive information and movement technology about how to support the healing and transformation needed in this time.

I would be honored to support your process of embodied awakening. The first step is the MOVEMENT MAP – to activate the 10 points that awaken your body’s intelligence.

“I am so grateful…

to have a sense of myself that I don’t remember having before. I feel alive! I wake up in the morning, bouncing out of bed. I want to live here. The field is so loving. I’ve been carried so tenderly through this whole process, What an incredible journey, It’s like coming home.”

Kim Burke, USA

“The azul spiral training…

…was the most profound healing experience I have ever had. I never felt more deeply connected to myself and embodied. Amara creates a magical mystery tour through the body and the psyche. It is the most powerful way to transform yourself within days.”

Lynn Korst, USA

    Here are some common questions about the MOVEMENT MAP

    What if I’m not a dancer?

    In Azul, we believe that everyone is a dancer. Whether you find yourself twirling around the room, or lying on your floor concentrating on your breath, Azul is a conscious movement practice and there is no right or wrong way to do it.

    You are welcome here exactly as you are. There are no steps to follow. There are no requirements to participate. There is only the support for you to discover the dancer that you are.

    Below you will find details of our daily schedule at the Retreat in Kisslegg.

    What if I can’t stand or move for long periods of time?

    You are welcome to come however you are. There are many ways to participate and receive the benefit of embodied movement.

    You can dance sitting in your chair, lying on the floor and you can also rest as you need. Participation is about presence and it is possible to stay present and rest your body as you need.

    This movement practice can be done by anyone regardless of physical ability, fitness, or prior dance experience.

    Often, we disconnect from our bodies because of pain. Sometimes we don’t receive inner guidance or messages our bodies are telling us.

    The map shows us away towards a connection to self, a sense of self felt through the body. Then things can move and transform in your body and in your life as a lived experience towards self-discovery, and personal healing.

    Are there any pre-requisites to join?

    You will be able to join the Embodiment Training if you meet one or more of these pre-requisites:

    • Have danced with Amara in person or online
    • Have attended conscious dance workshops and retreats (5Rhythms, Soul Motion or other movement modalities)
    • Have experienced other forms of psychological or spiritual healing work
    • Are a movement teacher, therapist or healing practitioner

    If you do not meet any of the above conditions, please email to discuss your participation.

    What if I don’t have enough time or money?

    Committing to yourself is self-care. Committing to a practice and a path can transform your life. It can increase your capacity to allow more in your life and tap into your life force, abundance and the gifts you have to offer. What we give our time to has a big effect on our experience of life.

    We have a Scholarship Fund that you can apply for assistance to attend our programs.
