Why Sensual Belly Dance and Sacred Yoga?

Drawing on ancient Taoist yoga principles and exotic Middle Eastern dance, reach into your soul and awaken the Goddess within.
"Welcome" in Turkish!
I am the creative director of Oryantal, feminine embodiment practitioner. I have a family origin of Turkish and French heritage. I grew up in Cyprus as a young girl and from the early age of 8, discovered a love for the middle eastern music and dance as I immersed myself in the cultural traditions with my aunties, cousins and friends. I have been performing, teaching and making a huge difference to women’s well being over the last 15 years by being a mentor, a leader, a sister and a source of empowerment for women.

A Magical Gift of Being Woman
The gathering of women is an integral part of life. Women know other women and deeply learn to connect intimately.
It’s a bond that forms on openness, love and trust. Women come together to be vulnerable, to explore their femininity and support each other in the full knowledge that the divine feminine that resides inside them is the same divinity in the other. Together, we strip back the layers of our different societal conditioning to lay our souls bare for the other women to nurture.
