Shakti School of Dance opened for me a door to real art, to the experience of the Mystery though the dance. Deep, sensitive, beauty. Thank you!

With a great respect for the oral tradition and in-person methods of teaching and training, I have to say that the online SSS experience was so deeply cherished. It brought more illumination to my practice and path, and was huge a gift to feel such connection with both Colleena and the community of students around the globe. The training felt both rich and thorough, and really wonderful value. A heart felt recommendation to all to invest in this online training if you can.

Shakti School of Dance is a wholistic training ground for the serious artist looking to immerse themselves in the spiritual, physical, philosophical and cultural roots of these precious Indian art forms. Colleena Shakti is an exceptional teacher who provides a fully immersive and highly supportive experience that is rarely experienced virtually. I cannot recommend this enough!

Shakti School of Dance is an extraordinary experience. It is being taken through a rich and elaborated training for the deep understanding, performance and preservation of Odissi Classical Dance. SSD is pervaded with deep values, hard work, fun, kindness, beauty and genuine artistry. It is not an ordinary school but a path of growth and transformation. Colleena is a master on this field and conducts her school with grace, warmth and clear direction. On her side there is a team of amazing people: Lisa, Matthew and Sudhabai whose collaboration and beautiful qualities make this experience possible.

Summer school online experience was great. Amazingly, there was both an atmosphere of participating in actual class and enough attention from teachers to online participants. great way to practice together and get valuable feedback which is so important in order to progress towards more beauty!!  We all love (and live) beauty. Thank you!  – Aija Devi, Latvia

I feel so honored to have taken Colleena’s theory classes as well as her Indian Fusion Bellydance classes since I am not able to travel outside my country due to regulations and money. For me, it was a dream come true and a reason for getting up early in the morning for enjoying her wisdom and dance with her. Colleena helped me a lot to overcome depression and anxiety, and gave me peace throughout the teachings. I’m forever grateful and I cross my fingers to meet her in “real life” someday. Thank you SO much, with love and respect. – Cele Acuña from Argentina.

My experience of Shakti Summer School online far exceeded my expectations! The teaching transmission was tangible and effective, even through virtual class! For me personally, it was a great boon to be able to study from my life, without having to disrupt everything to fly halfway around the world and be gone for 3-4weeks! Although I love travel and adventure, with the state of the world it was amazing to be here for my family, friends, yoga students and plants while still receiving this intimate and powerful teaching from Colleena!💖💖💖 The extra effort to make the online classes clear and well executed encouraged me to put in the extra effort necessary to make this practice a priority! And it was transformative! I am a new me, stronger than ever, more aware, more awake and pulsing with gratitude and love. Thank you Colleena Shakti for your dedication and thank you Shakti Team (espically Lisa Beck!) For your beautiful execution of a new learning platform! Jai Jagannath!

It was a wonderful experience! Although it was online this time, I noticed that there was a deeper understanding (in so many levels) of a lot of the things I was practicing on my own. It was the boost I needed to keep up my practice!

I appreciate how you gave your attention into everyone and every detail. Everything was very well organized and professionally done! Thank you so much!

I am so happy to be able to join again Odissi study with Colleena! As a mother and with my 3 different jobs, it wasn’t easy for me to go study to Pushkar and Crete. Shakti school online was perfect, I felt that I improved as much as if i was studying live. Thanks!!
