Alchemical Belly Dance Class In-Person Series


Belly dance inherently starts at the deep inner core of your body. It naturally activates and strengthens pelvic and torso muscles (commonly called core muscles), as well as building overall strength, grace, and balance.

Experience the sensuous, flowing side of belly dance in this Alchemical Belly Dance Series as you:

  • activate your energy centers
  • create sacred geometry with your body
  • direct chi (life force energy) throughout your body for a more embodied experience
  • connect with your divine feminine nature

In this 3 week mini class series you will become acquainted with empowering belly dance movements, including an introduction to veil work, which happens to be an amazing arm workout!

I wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying your classes. Combining the qigong with the belly dancing is amazing. I have been taking dance classes off and on for almost 20 years, and this is the first one where I feel completely in my body. And I have developed more core strength in the last month than with any other exercise I’ve done. I am very grateful for all that you offer.

Your classes are WONDERFUL!  I really love your pacing, knowledge and attention to detail and how much you obviously care about making sure that people have the info they need to succeed.

I have been taking Annya’s wonderful online belly dancing classes for the last 8 weeks from all the way across the world in Singapore. The classes really make me happy, as I get to learn and practice belly dancing from the comfort of my home with Annya, who is a patient, talented, and just wonderful teacher.

Annya teaches belly dancing in easily digestible steps, and she is very encouraging for beginners like me. I also love the follow up videos that she sends after the class. They are a great recap and practice, if we like to do some additional belly dancing in between classes.

Annya is light hearted and also humorous in the way she teaches, and it is a joy to participate in her classes.
