Awakened Bellydance is a multi-faceted, transformative, self-awakening process which travels far beyond the realms of the usual Bellydancer. It is perfect for all women who have an interest in movement for healing. An intuitive remembrance and reclaiming of your sovereign dancer transports you into intuitive flow and surrender through a heightened awareness of the body, mind and emotions as energy when you move with intention.
Creating a respectful, supportive sisterhood is paramount whilst gently and organically leading you on an authentic path to self-discovery. Using traditional Middle Eastern dance techniques, Sacred dances from around the world, breath and energy work, meditation, yoga and conscious communication. We naturally raise our vibration as we dance into our divine self.

This is a transformative self-awakening process that organically leads a person to surrender; towards authentic and meaningful existence through intuitive healing, release work, energy awareness and ecological lifestyles.The intuitive remembrance of the true self through heightened inner awareness of the body, mind and emotions as energy.
Katie's work is amazing! She is very down to earth, present, and I always feel held and safe with her. 100 % recommend her for personal and relationship growth'
I believe the work of Katie Holland and others is to heal these wounds and empower ourselves to be whole and be the owner of our bodies, the inner flame of our passion and creativity. This shame lives in us as a cultural collective, even if the voice inside is a little one, it is there.
This is such a wonderful course and I'd recommend it to everyone wanting to create balance in their life, share a deep spirituality with like-minded souls and become part of a wonderful universal tribe.
I'm such a different person, yet more myself - the very best version of myself- than I've ever been. And I know there is so much more depth and beauty and power to explore.
I just hadn't realised how much I hadn't wanted to look at, and hidden it from myself with alcohol. It has been great to release what has been coming up for me.The AwBd has really helped me to do that, in a massive way, so I am glad to feed that back to you, and reaffirm how brilliant it is.
Oh Katie, you really dont know how much working with you and AwBd is transforming my life - I wake up happy, so happy right now I could cry!
I am trusting more than ever that everything happens the way it's meant to happen. That even when the world feels like it's coming down, magic can still take place.
I had the opportunity to experience access clearings with Katie. It was very powerful and freed me from different layers of fears and programmings. I felt so much lighter afterwards. Very grateful for this therapy! It has already produced some positive transformations on my life. I definitely recommend!
I invite you all to check Katie's webpage and learn about Awakened Bellydance. Believe me, it's something you've never experienced before and it will transform you!

This was quite an experience, and I am honoured to have shared the time with so many wonderful women, I felt more connected then I have been for a while, I am bright, sparkly even! I feel the experience has done me the world of good, as I sink into my bed shortly- but still buzzing! I am cat watching- playing'.
“Above all, watch glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places, Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” (Roald Dahl) even in Enderby, it's here!
When I woke up this morning I was astounded, literally lying there feeling so different....the sense of wonderment was palpable. Also the stillness inside myself has increased dramatically.
When I did an illumination tonight with a friend as part of my practise cases I could feel the shift in myself and how that was affecting my being and everything I am doing and all around me. The sense of presence in the room was stunning..quite literally, neither of us could move for quite a while afterwards, Incredible!!
I'm really excited to see how all this integrates into my life now xxx
I've just spent 5 days participating in the Awakened Bellydance Facilitators Training. This is the 3rd time I've been on facilitators training having done the 1st and 2nd ones and I wanted to share with you my thoughts about how I've experienced AwBd grow.
It feels like the whole process of AwBd has gone through the alchemical stages within itself 🧚♂️ refining and transmuting into deeper spaces. The energy felt more activating and went deeper, I feel like it's organically evolved, strengthened and intensified xxxxx
Katie Holland is a wonderful teacher/leader to encourage you and help you channel the energy that will lift your spirits. She is there for you at all times and always responds to comments and questions to encourage you to go further in your practices & ensure that you get the most out of this course. I did the free online course during lock-down and then repeated it again. In addition, whenever I am feeling ‘stuck’ or out of sorts, I pick one of the classes for the areas that I need to work on, repeat it & each time it lifts me higher & deepens the learning. Each session is strong, healing & I thoroughly recommend Katie to anyone who is looking for less stress and more balance in their life.
Awakened Bellydance brings so many beautiful strands together. For me, it continues to provide a very deep physical and spiritual re-boot whenever I need. And enables me to go deeper into both micro and microcosm. I've never gone so deep into chakra work like this before, and have felt so much benefit, magic and connection. I hope more and more people learn about and practise Awakened Bellydance so we can join forces and continue to strengthen our bodies, minds, spirits and soul force! Especially during these deep changing times. And Katie is a Kundalini queen who I am so so grateful to have in my life.
Can't recommend the 121 sessions enough! One of the most profound, potent, powerful, experiences of my life! Did them nearly a year ago, and still go back to them to source strength, compassion, and wisdom. It's an ever unfolding process that's ancient and fresh at the same time. I've gone through the same 7 x 121 sessions 4 times now and it gets deeper and more expansive each time. Working with Katie Holland is divine and absolutely incredible. She's the real deal and holds a safe, sacred space. Gifting myself the 121 sessions is a gift that keeps on giving, still providing nourishment to my soul. And through this work, so many other beautiful things have opened up for me.
I encountered Katie ‘by chance’ as I was in great pain with an old hip issue. In our session I experienced her quiet gentle presence, her focused effectiveness in working Access Consciousness to help me release old programs and contracts etc., followed by her guidance in some subtle hip movements which activated strength and a feeling of stability in my impaired left hip. Her final hands-on my head enabled me to reach a sweet state of deep inner peace. I definitely recommend Katie as a wonderful gift as a skilled professional healer! Thank you dear Katie!
I've been doing it (Inner Dance training) all weekend and although I'm not an unhappy person I have my stresses, issues, baggage and pain just like everyone else does but I can't remember the last time I felt SO amazingly happy, content and at deep peace and a real sense of knowing and confidence in some choices and questions. The sessions themselves are powerful. The training is life changing for me and I don't say that lightly. Whatever I ‘do’ with it...I know many things will change significantly as a result of it. I was really really ready for this!
I have recently taken the AbunDance course. Katies way of story sharing combined with the journal prompts and dance movements has given me a different insight and perspective on my relationship with abundance and money in particular. It has transformed my mindset.
I no longer see that my investment money is trickling away, instead I see that I am using this time to invest in myself and my wellbeing. Giving me far more abundance in everyday life as well as a great understanding in bringing in more abundance for my future!'
