A natural high for better health

by Annelize Becht

Biodanza creates a natural high that can result in life changing health and well being.

Mark (not his real name) started dancing with me in Kalk Bay about a year ago. He is a cancer survivor who is still currently undergoing treatment. He was referred to me by his doctor, who knew about Biodanza and said it should help create better health and well being. I could see Mark was a bit skeptical and unsure initially, but he was committed and he kept coming back. Over time he warmed up to it more and more and today he is one of the most dedicated dancers and a real joy to have in the class. I feel that if I helped him, even in a small way, then this makes it all worthwhile for me. Below is a testimonial I received from Mark.

“I thought I would just let you know that I am now in such a good space, work wise, health wise and social life wise.

After last week’s awesome class, when I got home, I was on such a “high” that I listened to music and danced like a mad man.

My life has changed completely since I have started doing Biodanza, and never in my wildest dreams did I think that it would influence me so much.

I really look forward to the classes now and it has taken me awhile to block out the outside world and be in the zone.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate it

There is nothing more rewarding than to see how someone lights up and finds their inner joy, and then to witness them transforming slowly but surely into a happier and more fulfilled individual – more confident and consciously making more positive choices in life, resulting in health and well being. In some dancers there is such a remarkable difference, often after as little as 6 months of regular dancing, that I wish I had taken before and after photos to show them how far they’ve come. Having gone through the process myself, I feel very grateful to be in a position to share the gift of Biodanza with others and humbled to be able to witness their journeys. I dream of a day when Biodanza will be introduced everywhere; in schools, all levels of health care, the work place, even politics – wherever healing or connection or empowerment is required. I strongly believe, more than anything, Biodanza is what the world needs now to create a better life for all.
