A word from your teachers 


🦋 ZaRa


Raks Kheperu / Tribal Bellydance is the dance of the feminine - a sacred dance of the hips, belly, heart and emotion. Women have gathered for many 1000s of years to dance this ritual. Tribal bellydance has elements of Egyptian Bellydance and Indian Fusion with the classical Dances of Kathak and Odissi. Let me guide and teach you to rejuvenate your womb and female power. To find shining beauty and grace. The reward is the light you will illuminate to the world 💫


with love ❤️ ZaRa (light of sunrise)

As an Odissi dancer, there is nothing more fulfilling than bringing a story to life through my dance.

Through the beautiful expressions, intricate mudras, and impeccable footwork, I hope to take you on a journey of divine love, beauty, and grace. Odissi dance is not just a form of art but a way of life for me, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share my passion with the world.

I hope this Temple Goddess Retreat inspires you to explore the beauty of Indian classical dance and its rich cultural heritage. Join me in celebrating the magic of Odissi and its timeless beauty.

With love and gratitude,

Tejaswini Gautam
