Karla Rodriguez   email-icon-xs facebook-icon

The greatest discovery I have experienced is connecting with my heart and making it dance. I am a dance therapist in Dance of Life and facilitator of Awakened Bellydance, I love nature and animals, reiki, meditation, and music therapy. You can contact me here to dance together and discover our own internal movement. I offer online workshops (English & Spanish) and face-to-face workshops in Mexico.


“I feel privileged to be part of this AwBd process. I really don't find the words how I feel right now after holding space for root chakra dance. I just feel blessed to be a part of this kind of amazing process. Today I just listened to the ladies testimonies after dance and felt so wonderful to be a part of this circle.”
