This may be the only place you will ever find this collection of information delivered in a concise and cohesive display. I welcome you into the sacred, and what has thus far been, secret sanctum of my heart and devotion, along with polished jewels of my research, study, and practice from the past 20+ years.

This is a journey of profound Feminine Awakening and related disciplines. It’s a compilation of what was previously 2 related courses in a 4 week, introductory experience. Now we have the opportunity to deepen in practice, sharing, and personal exploration in this updated program. Everyone attending this 6 week TAI (Temple Arts Immersion™) gets access to class videos from the original 4 week program.

By dancing, doing yoga, lifting our vibration, stilling the mind, we are holding the torch of faith and wellbeing for others. The world needs us more than ever to shine and inspire others to do the same.

Part 1 – Inner Realms of the Yogini Temple Dancer

This course is meticulously designed to provide you a strong foundation of understanding and internal development to optimize your experience and practice in the Odissi Indian Classical Dance Choreography included here.

I am using the term “Yogini Temple Dancer” due to my theory and practice that the fully embodied and accomplished Temple Dancer must first embody and excel as Yogini.

Learn for yourself what this means and how these rare insights, disciplines, and tools cultivate your being into your authentic beauty, power, wisdom, and service.

Part 2 – Odissi Indian Classical Dance ~ Choreography

Merging Sacred Feminine Traditions from India & Tibet

I have constructed a choreography that symbolizes and merges the Yogini Tradition from India and the Dakini Tradition from Tibet. These ancient Feminine Archetypes are amongst the most powerful, expressive, and sensual Goddesses. Their duties are similar: dissolving illusions, representing our fully awakened state, and offering boundless compassion for all beings.

Odissi originated in one of India’s epicenters for Yoginis and Temple Dance, so Odissi is deeply rooted in Yogic Tradition. Classes focus on these principles of physical and energetic alignment, breath, sharpening our mental capacity, and other elements at the foundation of this dance.

Each class includes yoga, dance conditioning, and introductory Odissi practices including mudra (hand gestures) and padha (language of the feet). When appropriate, there will be discussion on the Herstory of Temple Dance and Yoginis.

Classes give you the dynamic and diverse foundational elements to enable you to blossom through your being with this demanding discipline of body-mind-energy synergy.
