Kaosikii Dance

Definition - What does Kaosikii Dance mean?

Kaosikii dance is an Indian spiritual dance practice that was created in 1978 by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti (also known as Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar), an Indian philosopher. Much like a yoga practice, Kaosikii dance develops the mind and spirit through the stamina and intention developed by the physical practice.

Yogapedia explains Kaosikii Dance

Although Kaosikii dance is primarily practiced by women, it is considered beneficial for both males and females. It is considered an alternative spiritual dance practice to ancient Tandava dance, which can be more physically strenuous on females and older individuals.

It is believed that Kaosikii helps reveal the inner (and truest) self by beginning at a mental/physical level and moving up to a spiritual level, thereby removing the koshas that conceal the Self.

Many practitioners of Kaosikii dance consider it to have healing properties for the body and mind, including alleviation of insomnia, spinal pain, kidney and bladder issues, menstrual irregularities, as well as cleanses the glands, increases mental clarity, and reduces joint issues.
