Dhyana

Since I was 8 years old I have practiced many types of dance, but the belly dance that came my way in 1999 really stole my heart.

I learned the basics at Yamina and further deepening at Lady Moonlight, Ahlem, Naima, the Tarab training (lady Moonlight & Sena) and by following many workshops at Saboushka, Faruq, Nazir, Dina, Yazila, Osama and Shaheen, among others.

Experiencing and further curiosity about the healing effect of dance and movement led me to the Dance and movement expression training in group work at the Fontys dance academy in Tilburg in 1999 and in 2011 to the Medical Qi-gong course at the OTCG in Antwerp. Since the summer of 2017 I have been giving Belly-Qi-Dance workshops at various locations.
