Greetings and Love

 

Welcome..

 

I've been a mover all my life and I am very grateful to dance & yoga. 

 

When I was growing up, my family had spontaneous dance sessions and that was my favorite time of the day. I got to dance and sing in ecstasy and did not depend on words to express myself. I remember having a lot of fun moving around. I was 6 years old when I took my first ballet class. I  knew something important was happening to me. After years of classical ballet training and graduating from Istanbul Bilgi University's Management of Performing Arts Department; I became a professional dancer/performer.

I have worked with great artists and have been exploring in different dance styles. I love what I do. It has always been fun, beyond my imagination.

 

I am constantly amazed by the abilities and beauty of human body. 

I respect the body as a vessel, temple, playground. I feel blessed to have cross paths with all my teachers, dancers, students & friends. They inspire me to unlock different aspects of my nature such as rhythm, silence, movement, stillness, ritual, play, 5 elements, mythology, aromatherapy and LOVE.

 

In 2011, I finished my first yoga teachers training, in Istanbul with Zeynep Aksoy. Since then, I keep traveling further. I love traveling because I believe it is the most humbling experience. I study yoga & dance, perform and share my understanding of the nature of movement. 

I experiment in contemporary dance techniques  and offer yoga classes & trance dance sessions; spontaneous flow of freeform movement as taught by my teacher, global yogini & fire keeper Shiva Rea. 

Earth, water, fire, air, space and DANCE.

 

I love the circus and I'm a break dance fan.  I have a thing for books and sunsets. 

 

Enjoying the beats of this wild journey,

see you in the circle.. 

 

Peace!

 

O.
