Alchemical Belly Dance - Online

Annya Ishtara Belly Dance

Body bliss, energy flow, and healing meet in this magical blend of belly dance, qigong, and the elements of nature.

Alchemical Belly Dance connects you with the healing energy of your own body, as well as the healing energies of the earth and the cosmos around you.

As you intentionally activate your energy channels through beautiful belly dance moves, you connect more completely with the movements, sensuality, and strength of your body, while increasing your health and immune system through principles of qigong and Chinese medicine.

Not only will you feel great while dancing with your own energy, you’ll be potentizing and magnifying the positive impact of your dance both for yourself and for any potential viewers. This is because you will be connecting deeply with your own intention and your inner source of personal power, as well as with the elements of nature for a magical dance experience that radiates through you and beyond.

In this class you will:

  • Sink more deeply into the lusciousness of flowing belly dance moves
  • Experience more ease and joy in dancing
  • Become more comfortable with belly dance improvisation to create your own unique belly dance expression
  • Discover deep spiritual and energetic meaning and purpose in your dance moves
  • Connect with the life force energy within you to enhance your sensuality and health
  • Feel more empowered as you learn to connect with your center
  • Experience more trust and acceptance of your body

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.

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. Thank you, Annya, for bringing your classes online!!
