'Awakening the Womb in the Dreamtime’
An Invitation for a Transformational Journey into Your Bellydance Power….
Awakened Bellydance™ is a 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, yoga and conscious communication. We naturally raise our vibration as we dance into our divine self.
Bellydance is a captivatingly beautiful dance filled with mystery and sensuality. Like Yoga it has been around for thousands of years, it has the capability to integrate feminine and masculine energies into the body bringing a woman into wholeness and out of the bondage imposed by the self and society. Kundalini energy is activated through hip and belly based movements as we align with the geometric spirals of the universe. This creates a womb filled with power which if nurtured can lead to infinite potential and manifestation. However, in modern times as the origins and secrets of Bellydance have faded into ‘his-story’ dancers can also experience the shadow dancer as energy can stagnate and become trapped within the lower chakras manifesting in control, judgment, competition, structure, conditioning and ego.
Dancing through our own perceived blockages within individual and collective journeys we move in soul resonance. Observing what we need to heal, learn and dream we will explore and experience our innate power. Jenny will guide and share her extensive knowledge instilling a gentle confidence inspiring you to continue on your transformational path of ‘dancenlightenment’. This deep knowing is a powerful tool for self-empowerment, propelling you forward on your visionary soul path.
As we connect authentically to the self we embody and activate the womb; the heart of Bellydance and a sacred vessel for your Kundalini energy. Each woman’s womb contains all of creation since time began - past relationships, old patterns, traumatic births, wounds, problem periods and sexual abuse. That’s yours and every woman that we hold as a collective.
When we bring awareness, compassion, integration and light to the shadow self we give our bodies permission for expression, freedom and joy. Connecting womb to heart to de-program, restructure, unlearn and activate our bodies’ energetic pathways. As we acknowledge and surrender our conditioning, control, the ego and trauma; life can also be fulfilling, self-healing and filled with love!
This is an invitation to experience You – to embrace your Awakened Bellydancer! She who moves through the veil and removes it with heart and soul! Perfect for all those who wish to integrate and rejoice in their absolute and deepest divine femininity whilst unashamedly claiming the absolutely fantastic dancer they were born to be!
For teachers, performers and all women who would like to go beyond the mind into deep surrender and trust within the heart. Awakened Bellydance expands your existence to transcend into endless possibilities! Creating a greater level of authenticity and connection to all aspects of your life!

Attending workshops with Jenny has been life changing for me. I have learnt to reconnect with myself in a safe and controlled environment. Jenny explains and connects it all together in a magical way. Thenk you Jenny. Can't wait for the next worshops and working with you again.
Awakened Bellydance is a deeply empowering experience that deeply roots you in your body and allows you to clear and activate your chakras to begin to be fully who you are. It made clear to me that so much of our conditioning and core beliefs about ourselves and the world is inherited from our society. Who am I underneath these layers? What am I naturally drawn to? What do I want to explore? How can I relate to people in a healthy way in community? It awakens and begins to answer these questions whist building a beautiful sisterhood with your fellow dancers.
Jenny was born to do this work. I have immense gratitude for the course and my fellow dancers who I now feel are sisters. It works very deeply and months after the course had finished I am setting boundaries, changing relationships and asking myself important questions. I cannot be the old me, a journey has begun with a single step; well movement of the hips.
