Lasya Attar

THE ESSENCE OF FEMININE GRACE

Join us for our 7th annual Indian Fusion Bellydance Retreat with renowned international performer and beloved teacher, Colleena Shakti.

1st - 7th December 2019 in Bali!

LASYA ATTAR

The Essence of

feminine grace

LASYA is a Sanskrit word meaning feminine gracefulness, 
ATTAR - a concentrated essence.

Just as in the distillation process of fine perfume oils, a dancer must find purification through concentrated efforts in the training process, distilling both her intentions and technique. 

In Indian performance art theory, the goal of all art is to produce a delectable atmosphere, an air or essence that can be savored by the audience, known as Rasa. With the theory of Rasa being the starting point of all Indian art, it only seems fitting that the analogy of making attar (the most refined essential oil) be the parallel to the process of “making a dancer”.  

We offer you, as a dancer, reflective time to ask yourself what kind of dancer do you want to be, and we begin the journey to reach your goals. 

The curriculum will focus on
THE PROCESS.

 

THE TEACHER

Colleena Shakti

Colleena's own elegant version of Indian Fusion Belly Dance is unmistakeable, embellished with Indian aesthetics and delicate motifs from her years of dedicated research, study and practice while living in India.


Colleena is a dancer of great subtlety and depth. 

Drawing from her in-depth study of Indian artistic traditions, Vedic philosophies, classical Odissi and Kathak, Rajasthani folk and tribal dance forms, her strong background in belly dance and the rigor of her practice as a dedicated dancer, yogini, teacher and performer, Colleena offers students a rich and holistic workshop curriculum.

"As a mature dancer I found Colleena Shakti's Bali dance retreat to be one of the most inspiring, challenging and fulfilling dance experiences. The organization by Alison Mulroy went without a glitch, and the venue was sublime. The memories from this retreat and the friendships I have made will surely bring me back to beautiful Bali next year for more hard work and fun."
