Discover the Power of Whiling- Alchemy Spinning, Introductory Workshop at Inner Path in Nevada City

A Sufi-inspired Alchemy Spinning Introductory Workshop with Raquel Santiago to discover the power of whirling and expand our consciousness.

Alchemy Spinning™ is a powerful and yet accessible whirling practice at the intersection of mindfulness and movement.

Inspired on Sufi Dervishes and other whirling dances of the world, Alchemy spinning makes the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits of whirling available to everybody.

Alchemy Spinning™ combines dance, movement, yoga, breath work, and meditation.

  • Experience an expanded state of consciousness
  • Become more aware, present and embodied
  • Discover your own true power to heal your life
  • Unleash your creativity and your artistic expression
  • Awaken joy, inner peace, and compassion towards self and others


We will work on several exercises that combine dance, yoga, breathing and meditation in order to connect deeply with our own bodies, balance the flow of energy in our chakras along our spines, and root ourselves firmly in the Earth, while charging up our energy and opening our hearts.  This is the key to avoid and manage dizziness.

We will learn basic whirling techniques and we will create and hold a safe space for the participants to spin at will, but each person is encouraged to spin according to their own needs and feelings, entering and exiting the spinning space as they feel compelled to.

Open to everybody. No previous dance experience is necessary.
