"The movements that are quintessential to Belly Dance are universal; they belong to the innate, intuitive parts of ourselves. They open us up to a deeper knowing, to a healing dance that is multidimensional and profound..." Maria Sangiorgi
The styles of Belly Dance that inspire Helia take origin in the Mediterranean, North African and Middle Eastern dances, Raks Sharki and Beledy; her two most influential teachers were Egyptian and Lebanese. Although she is very attached to the beauty of the moves, Helia's classes aim at personal growth and global health. Therefore, she deeply cares about her students and respects them equally, regardless to their dancing abilities.
Helia applies her Master knowledge and experience of a new holistic field, called Somatic Education, to the teaching of Belly Dance, an ancient holistic wisdom. The result is an extraordinary empowerment for her students.
Helia's students are regularly offered possibilities of public performances as one more way of empowerment... and for the Joy of it! but nobody is expected to perform; it has to come from the heart!
What is Empowerment?
Empowerment is a personal and social process that helps one gain control over her own life. In what area of your life, do you need change? Do you want to lose weight? Do you want to free yourself from addictions or bad habits? Do you need to find a way to get or stay in shape that also engages your heart and soul?
