Feminine Sacred Dance

Holistic Healing & Embodiment Arts


My Story

I have studied Languages and Pedagogy at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with focus on Psycholinguistics.


Working with kids and young adults has been very rewarding. Yet, my dream has been to become a flamenco dancer and to explore different tribal cultures. In 2012 I moved to Spain, to study this powerful dance which inspired the primal longings of my Soul. A couple of years later and amidst a personal breakdown, I decided to embark on what has turned out to be a deeply healing journey. I backpacked from the southernmost point of Latin America all the way to Peru, where I have stayed with indigenous tribes and have immersed myself in shamanism and natural healing.


My personal quest for meaning along with many dark nights of the Soul have led me to study different healing modalities.


I have studied holistic arts and foot Reflexology at renowned schools of Buenos Aires, Hatha (200hrs Yoga Alliance), Kundalini Yoga according to Yogi Bhajan (300 hours) and Feeling Color, a powerful method of re-alignment with the Colors of the Soul.


I have had the chance to work with diverse groups of people; young adults with addiction issues in rehabilitation centers, women who have suffered domestic violence and children. Dancing reappeared into my Life in a very organic way along with the Feminine path of Awakening. Mainly Flamenco, Tribal Bellydance, Gypsy and Mystical Dance. I have studied with many internationally renowned dancers and have explored various modalities of dance and dance therapy.


What has always fascinated me has been the healing aspect of Dance, beyond the mere aesthetics. The way Dance can help us connect to our emotions and access the sacred elements of Creation. Since 2014 I have started holding my own healing circles. Since 2016 I have been collaborating with Lalita Devi, organizing Sacred Dance Retreats for Women in Greece. I am certified Women´s Circle Facilitator from Feminine Soul Awakening Institute. I have developed Intuitive Reflexology and Emotional Liberation Dance. Wild, earth-based Spirituality and high vibrational practices are part of the systems I faciltate, Shaktiflow Yoga and Gypsy Soul Dance. I offer personal sessions, Workshops and Retreats of Feminine Empowerment through dance in different parts of the world. I am devoted to serving the Feminine in each person.​​​
