Life is constant movement; without it, what would we be?
When I was about 18, I started practicing yoga as a need for a symmetric exercise. I didn't know much about it then, but slowly with practice. Like many practitioners, I started noticing little changes in my day-to-day life.
Awareness of my poster
Awareness of my thoughts
Awareness of my soul's deep urging for spiritual wisdom and inspiration.
My teacher used to say that we start our journey from the physical and slowly grow into the spiritual; the highest wisdom of it all is to combine the two, spiritualize matter and materialize the spirit, finding the balance between them.
The more I connected my spirit and soul to my body as a vessel, the more I stepped away from my femininity, sensuality, and passion.
As an integrated woman, I aspire to have all my parts living in harmony, so when I started dancing tribal fusion belly dance, it was a revelation! A celebration of womanhood, snaky moves without the will to amuse the outside viewer, a force coming from within. It was a pure delight of feminine movement, regardless of size or shape. My passion for creation started bubbling from within. I received great inspiration from folk dance to create my timeless dance collection, either in the mermaid Bellydance skirt from Ethnic Dance or the Asymmetric gypsy skirt from flamenco dance.
Dance has opened a new world of connecting to my body and feminine movement. The more I accept, the more I move freely.
