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.
Bellydance is a captivatingly beautiful dance filled with mystery and sensuality. Like Yoga it has been around for thousands of years, it has the capability to integrate feminine and masculine energies into the body bringing a person into wholeness and out of the bondage imposed by the self and society.
Kundalini energy is activated through hip and belly based movements as we align with the geometric spirals of the universe. This creates a womb filled with power which if nurtured can lead to infinite potential and manifestation. However, in modern times as the origins and secrets of Bellydance have faded into ‘his-story’ dancers can also experience the shadow dancer as energy can stagnate and become trapped within the lower chakras manifesting in control, judgment, competition, structure, conditioning and ego.
Dancing through our own perceived blockages within individual and collective journeys we move in soul resonance. Observing what we need to heal, learn and dream we will explore and experience our innate power. Katie will guide and share her extensive knowledge instilling a gentle confidence inspiring you to continue on your transformational path of ‘dancenlightenment’. This deep knowing is a powerful tool for self-empowerment, propelling you forward on your visionary soul path which you can then share with others in your own Awakened Bellydance classes.
As we connect authentically to the self we embody and activate the womb; the heart of Bellydance and a sacred vessel for your Kundalini energy. Each woman’s womb contains all of creation since time began - past relationships, old patterns, traumatic births, wounds, problem periods and sexual abuse. That’s yours and every woman that we hold as a collective.
When we bring awareness, compassion, integration and light to the shadow self we give our bodies permission for expression, freedom and joy. Connecting womb to heart to de-program, restructure, unlearn and activate our bodies’ energetic pathways. As we acknowledge and surrender our conditioning, control, the ego and trauma; life can also be fulfilling, self-healing and filled with love!
