I came to JourneyDance at a very difficult time in my life. I discovered it was not only a way to feel my feelings in a safe environment, but also a place to reclaim joy. All feelings were welcomed and held through this practice.
Teaching for me is also a practice, opening up to my higher self and letting source energy flow. I love sharing the experience.
Edwin Ortiz has been moving to music from the time he was born. At a young age he learned the traditional dances of his heritage with a Puerto Rican folk dancing group. At the High School of Performing Arts in New York City, he studied drama and took classes in ballet, modern dance and jazz. He attended Berklee College of Music, received a bachelor’s degree in International Relations from Tufts University and holds a master’s in education from Harvard University.
Edwin regularly assists JourneyDance™ founder, Toni Bergins, at teacher trainings and workshops at centers like the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and Samadhi. He is a certified Zumba™ instructor and has a certification in Group Exercise from the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). He is also an RYT having studied yoga and shamanic healing practices through the Jaguar Path Yoga School. He believes in movement as a path to self-discovery, a powerful way to sweat out the things that hold us back, so we can connect to our higher selves and our authentic individual power. He loves to move and invites you to the transformational experience of JourneyDance™, no previous movement or dance experience is necessary to participate in this spiritual practice, “Anyone can come to class, move to the music, and experience their own divine journey.”
