Meet your host Katie ~ sacred dance and inner empowerment facilitator...
Following an innate fascination for movement and the profound self empowerment and healing it can give; Katie has been dancing from the age of three, with over 20 years experience in Arabic Dance. Katie has also studied Ballet, Tap, Modern, African, Samba, Bollywood, Sacred Nepalese Buddhist dances, Sufi Whirling, Tai Chi, Qi Gung, Osho Dynamic meditation, Gurdjieff Sacred dances and is currently studying Bharatnatyam, Tantra and Balinese dance.
Through dance, dynamic movement, a vegan yogic lifestyle, exploration and conscious intention Katie has deepened her own personal level of Self-observation, understanding, psychic awareness, teaching and holding sacred space. This has also gave her a deep connection to the natural world and access to previously unknown knowledge and strengths within that she has then happily been able to share with others.
After 12 years of development, Katie created Awakened Bellydance, a multi-faceted, transformative, self-awakening process which travels far beyond the realms of the usual Bellydancer. See link above:
