Awakened Belly Dance
A candlelit dance meditation
Awakened Bellydance is multi-faceted, transformative, self-awakening process which travels far beyond the realms of the usual Bellydancer. It is perfect for all women who have an interest in movement for healing. An intuitive remembrance and reclaiming of your sovereign dancer transports you into intuitive flow and surrender through a heightened awareness of the body, mind and emotions as energy when you move with intention.
Creating a respectful, supportive sisterhood is paramount whilst gently and organically leading you on an authentic path to self-discovery. Using traditional Middle Eastern dance techniques, Sacred dances from around the world, breath and energy work, meditation, sound healing and conscious communication. We naturally raise our vibration as we dance into our divine self.

The Inner Dance Meditation
‘Inner Dance’ is a shamanic form of meditation intended to allow participants to Trust, Surrender and Flow. Depending on the participants ability to let go, they enter a deep meditative trance enabling a profound sense of expanded awareness from which:
- deep healing (mental, emotional, physical, spiritual) can occur
- People’s own energies being to flow, which sometimes can manifest as unconscious movement (hence the term inner dance)
When you are “being” the Inner Dance, you are living in flow and living a life of manifestation and synchronicity. In Inner Dance there are no rules, no boundaries, no levels, no matters, no students, no ego’s, no attachments . . . we are all just being. The Inner Dance experience creates a state of consciousness to yourself and the universe. It allows you to be and live your authentic self, without judgement and connect deeply with others. For many people Inner Dance is a life changing experience.

Awakened Belly Dance Course review
‘I attended Rachel’s chakra belly dance course and found it one of the most profound and healing courses i have ever had the pleasure of taking. Everyone there shared their experience and we became a supportive sisterhood – i felt i could say what i needed to say without judgement or fear, knowing i had the encouragement of the other women in the group, we laughed, cried and shared our lifes journey, helping us move forward each week. i threw myself into the experience and gave it my all to heal and open each chakra, feeling the energy of each chakra, actually physically and move the things that need to be healed, “letting it go” and making each wheel spin and become brighter. the freedom and creativity you experience is beautiful. Rachel is such an amazing facilitator who knows when to say and do what is needed at the right time, knowing its all about YOUR journey, YOUR healing and YOUR experience. By the end of the course i was both exhausted and revitalised – a true rebirth, like i had “refound” a part of me that was lost. my new found courage, confidence and creativity has come through in every aspect of my life, everyone has noticed and complemented on how happier, bright and secure i am, i recommend this for everyone’- Ruth May

Awakened Belly Dance Course Review
Thank you so much Rachel and all who danced with me. I really enjoyed the course which helped me through a massive change – giving up a job I’ve done more or less all my life to work doing something similar but less hours, less paperwork & hopefully less stress – yeah! – A Tyrell
Awakened Belly Dance Course Review
Hi Rachel, I wanted to thank you for leading a wonderful Awakened Belly Dance course, I really enjoyed the journey and gained some valuable insights from attending particularly around protecting boundaries which is very helpful for me at present…I loved the opportunity to focus fully on the movement of my body with wonderful women in the safe and nurturing environment you created. I think I shall be coming along again to repeat at some point in the future! – A Pearce
