Known as: Shiva Nata, Shivanata or Dance of Shiva
Dance of Shiva is a form of pattern-shifting dance that re-wires your brain in order to make new connections and change your habits. It’s based on principles taken from martial arts and yoga; providing a good work out for your body, toning muscle, aiding balance and improving co-ordination.

Shivanata sessions are good for a variety of reasons.
They’re good for:
Your body – as all exercise is. Particularly toning.
Your brain – which rewires itself to connect with more parts, becomes more efficient and can handle more messages.
Your mind – which enters a state of flow, relaxes you and brings about amazing insights and epiphanies.
Who Is It For?
Shiva Nata is useful for anyone who needs to use their brain or body. From scientists to writers, anyone who needs to learn or to unlearn; to de-construct their patterns or beliefs and thus re-write negative habits.
In short; probably you.
Ten Scenarios Where Shivanata Might Benefit You:
- Need innovative ideas for work?
- Can’t quite word that proposal (marriage or business) or sales page?
- Struggling to exercise?
- Can’t quite link your dissertation ideas?
- Haven’t written an essay in years and need that sense of ‘flow’?
- Got exams and need to remember useless information?
- Working towards your green belt and want more balance/agility/co-ordination?
- Need to specifically develop mind-body awareness for juggling, synchronised swimming or uni-cycling? (I’ve done all of these, including juggle while uni-cycling around a massive Christmas tree. Seriously).
- Trying to learn a new skill such as dance, language (yes, C++ and your chemistry jargon counts as a language) or mental visualisation skills?
- Caught up in your old habits and can’t seem to shake them? Don’t even know why you do them?
Take as long as you need to get each section. Everyone will learn at different speeds. I’m patient and passionate about helping you learn from where you are.
I’m studying for an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience, I’ve been practising for two years, teaching since May 2011 and I teach all levels via Skype.
Rose is approachable, relaxed, gentle and lovely! She has a great eye and capacity to gently correct any mistakes held in posture without making you feel like a plum! If, like me, your DVD has been gathering dust then this could well help to boost your practise and level of commitment.
Our session was very much like having your best friend encourage or cheer you on, or perhaps more like working with a peer who is a little further along than you are but remembers the very real challenges that each movement provides.
I found this lesson really useful and a lovely way of easing me back to the Dance of Shiva. It enabled me to solidify some of the more basic sequence and movements taught on the DVD. So a nice boost and support to accompany the DVD or to get you started on your journey with the Dance of Shiva!”

They are difficult. However, finding it difficult means it’s working. Getting it wrong is encouraged, as that means you’re doing it right. As constant practise increases your co-ordination, balance and rhythm; you do not need these to begin with (in fact it’s easier if you don’t).
You never finish learning Shivanata; as your brain can always be improved, make new neurons and certain levels utilise more or less of certain aspects. This makes it inexpensive considering how long you can keep gaining its benefits.
You can do this practise anywhere, for any space of time. That 60 seconds as the kettle boils is the perfect time to do 8 moves. Sitting on the bus? There are mental aspects involving no outer movement so you can stay connected to the flow it brings.
