I thought embodied bellydance intensive was just another bellydance only focused workshop. but after three days of the intensive I have experienced an amazing emotional growth through movement and meditation exercises lead by Maria and I have extended my own body awareness that I Now apply to my folk dance practise. At the end of my journey with Maria I felt clear, rich and energised both as a woman and a dancer!
