A sattvic retreat experience in Yoga, Meditation and Odissi Classical Indian Dance, located within an ashram and Shakti Temple of North Italy.

Immerse completely in Colleena’s approach to Odissi Classical dance as taught at her school ‘Shakti School of Dance’ (Rajasthan).  Her teachings are steeped in theoretical discussion and yogic wisdom to support a strong entry into this dance form rooted in ancient Vedic culture.

This retreat will be held at a very special Shakti ashram / temple to offer students a Sattvic, yogic experience.

Beginning & Intermediate students welcomed.

New students will learn foundation techniques and details, students who already train with Colleena or similar lineage of Odissi will learn one new item based on their competence and training background.
