Dance and Awaken Your Body’s Wisdom

The Movement MAP is an embodiment program designed to help you harness and reveal the innate wisdom of your body. It includes 5-day deep immersion and 3-month integration and support in the Azul Portal.

An embodiment program to bring you home to the knowledge of yourself as love

  • Receive a full-body activation that gives you a blueprint of embodied awakening
  • Access the innate wisdom of your body
  • Experience the power of movement to awaken your heart and free your energy
  • Find alignment within your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual self
  • Open to embracing love in every area of your life

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 us to receive guidance, make good decisions and engage our soul’s learning. We need this connection in order to heal physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Embodied movement offers 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.

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, 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

What is the Spiral Map of Azul?

The Spiral Map of Azul is the structure that holds all the teachings of Azul – it is visualized as an upward moving spiral with Love at its center.

The Spiral Map guides your journey of embodied awakening, giving you the tools you need to free yourself from excessive thought and land your soul in your body.

During this retreat, you are guided through a movement experience for each of the 10 components of the map to facilitate a deepening of your embodiment. This process results in a full body activation, allowing you to embody this spiritual path and gain access to its tools and techniques to use in your life.

Program Overview

During the retreat we move through each component of the Spiral Map of Azul in ten 3-hour sessions

Day 1

The 4 Orientations form the basic structural components of every Azul dance and they create the spiritual foundation for embodiment that supports your awakening.

The Spiral Map of Azul propels you on your journey toward Love, receiving support from the 2 Anchors that help you to see and know yourself as Love.

Day 2

The 3 Emotional Keys form a foundation for the emotional work that is opened through conscious dance, pointing you towards your vibrance and authenticity.

The 5 Elements become partners in your movement practice, allowing you to experience your embodiment as a reflection of the Earth and Nature itself.

Day 3

The 6 Doorways are core values that offer guidance. When embodied, they awaken love and bring greater health, harmony and well-being into your life.


The 7 Focuses are points of attention to create movement with awareness and clarity, helping you to experience different qualities of movement and energy flow.

Day 4

The 8 Pillars​​​​​​​ expand your capacity to experience your embodiment as a spiritual being, furthering your practice of embodied awakening

The 9 Directions support you in feeling all of you.  By expanding your dance to include all of these points, you open to experiencing the entirety of your energetic field.

Day 5

The 10 Wisdom Centers are points of energy along the vertical channel of your body that are key to accessing the depth of your embodied wisdom.

As we integrate together we honor the innate wisdom of your body and the new awareness and alignment within your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual self.

“This path can lead you as far as you wish to take it.”

 ~ Amara

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.

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 can’t stand for long periods of time? Can I dance in a chair?
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.

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.

The program is articulated into two 3-hour daily sessions, with a 60 min break in between.
