Daloy: The Flow of Embodied Wisdom

Daloy, a Tagalog term synonymous with 'Flow,' serves as a captivating movement meditation that invites individuals to embrace moments of ease and present-moment awareness. Rooted in the divine feminine energy of intuition, surrender, and trust, Daloy reclaims the tradition of Bahala Na (Bathala Na) and weaves it into the fabric of conscious living, harmonizing with the universal wisdom of Philippine pakikipagkapwa.

This transformative practice encompasses:

  • Trust in oneself

  • Conscious presence

  • Vibrant aliveness

  • Embodiment of love

  • Liberation of ancestral lineage



Daloy Movement emerges as a dynamic and durational meditation that taps into the innate wisdom of the body through the four elements—Air, Water, Earth, and Fire. With 17 years of dance teaching and a rich background in classical and contemporary ballet, Ea Torrado embarked on a profound journey of exploration. Guided by the question, "What are ways of moving, and being, that are nurturing to the body?" she delved into a diverse range of movement-based forms such as Yoga, Reiki, Physical Theatre, Viewpoints Technique, and Improvisation. This quest deepened her connection to human physiology and its limitless potentials.

Ea's transformative journey took her to New York in 2017 under the Asian Cultural Council Grant, where she underwent a 6-month intensive study focusing on contemporary dance, somatics, dance therapy, and improvisation. This voyage solidified her belief in dance as a pathway to profound self-intimacy.

The Embodiment Experience

Daloy Movement cultivates a space where dance becomes a catalyst for self-reflection, mindfulness, and liberation. Ea Torrado nurtures each participant, guiding them to embrace their inner strength, authenticity, and presence. Through this practice, individuals are reminded that these states of being are accessible within themselves, transcending time and space.

Within the secure haven of Daloy Movement, autonomy, authenticity, and agency flourish. A spirit of mutual care and respect forms the foundation, enabling participants of all ages, sizes, genders, abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and religious beliefs to find a sense of belonging within their bodies.

A Global Journey

Daloy Movement's evolution transcends borders and boundaries. Originating as a series of classes in Sikat Studio and Erehwon Arts Center from 2014 to 2015, it has graced international stages, from the Asia Pacific Improv Festival in Malaysia to the Radical Contact Festival in Sweden. It has journeyed to Japan, the United States, and various platforms, enriching diverse audiences.

Intricately interwoven into Ea Torrado's artistic endeavors, Daloy Movement has manifested in dance performances across the world. From a trio at The Cultural Center of The Philippines to a solo in Korea and a quintet for international conferences, this practice has seamlessly merged with the realm of art and academia.

Ea Torrado's 6-month Research Residency in New York, supported by the Asian Cultural Council Grant, was a pivotal chapter in Daloy Movement's story. It became a healing practice, enriching lives and facilitating profound introspection, even finding its way to Yale University.

In Conclusion

Daloy Movement, more than a dance, is a transformative journey. It encapsulates a rich tapestry of movement, mindfulness, and self-discovery, inviting individuals to unlock their innate wisdom and embrace the vibrant flow of existence. Join us, as we dance, reflect, and liberate—embracing the essence of Daloy.
