Introducing Shrina – Shakti Flow
Shrina Patel is a Performer, Actor, Yoga Teacher, Choreographer and the Artistic Director and Founder of Shaktiflow. Her focus is choreographing movements that tell stories of gender and social inequality. The intention is to provoke conversations of the traditional social norms which society holds for the individual, based on their gender, race, and ethnicity. Her vision is aligned with that of Shaktiflow’s which is to dedicate the intention to empower individuals through movement–stories told through dance. Each gesture has a meaning and with them the power to facilitate ideas of harmony, unity, equality, and change. You can find her on Instagram @shaktiflowyeg or via her website www.shaktiflow.org
