A Programme to activate your
EMBODIED SACRED FEMININE LEADERSHIP
We are offering a special blend of Online Learning with an In Person Training Retreat for Kundalini Dance Certification
Offering you the best combination of in-depth online learning with the activation of in person sweaty, raw and real LIVE retreats. Led by Leyolah and other advanced Kundalini Dance Priestesses Globally.
This is a professional development training for those wishing to offer powerful and life changing Kundalini Alchemical Dance workshops. This work will suit both those looking for a template to begin facilitating and for those who are already practitioners and therapists who desire to upgrade your ability to guide others through embodied transformation and facilitate spiritual awakening through the lens of the divine feminine.
This is a professional training that is also a personal journey of REBIRTH of the Soul
In my experience of leading countless in person training retreats over the past 16 years I have witnessed that, anyone who undertakes this journey will very likely experience a depth of rebirth and alignment to their soul essence and divine design.
This work is not for the faint-hearted and is for those who are ready and willing to do the real work, the great work that involves activating kundalini shakti and purifying that which no longer serves them so that they may step up as a sacred leader and voice for the divine.
The Kundalini Alchemical Dance practice is a profound practice and can take people into some really deep transpersonal and multidimensional spaces. It is so important that those of you who are facilitating this work, which is in essence sacred inner union in each chakra, has a depth of experience of the art of transformation, and is well versed in the terrain of the inner realms as well as is able to hold space for the depth of emotional clearing that can come up too.
We are heading towards a mass collective spiritual awakening and earth kundalini activation that will awaken many souls on the planet and there will be an unprecedented need for guides who understand the alchemical healing process of safely navigating kundalini energy in a way that will lead to integrated transformation and higher consciousness.
This is a career for the future.
We are going to need more and more transformational guides as the changes continue.
We are going to need more and more midwives for the soul.
This is a dance training, yet it is so much more.
It is an entry point into a mystery school that specializes in the alchemical art form of sacred inner union. That is a potent and profound method for midwifing ecstatic spiritual awakening in a safe and integrated way.
If this is what you feel you are born to do, then join us for our

FOUNDER AND LEAD FACILITATOR
New South Wales, Australia
Just over 33 years ago, I fell in love with my first soul mate, the first time we made love I had a Kundalini activation that changed the course of my life forever. I was in art school at the time and had been pursuing a career in ceramics, I had just came out of a two year apprenticeship in Japan with Takuo Bizen a ceramisist who came from a famous family lineage of traditional ceramisists, the Bizen Family.
After my Kundalini awakening, I became obsessed with wanting to serve others in their awakening and began to pray consistantly asking, what is my purpose. One day, my then husband and I sat in ceremony together in the Australian Desert at a very sacred site, called Palm Valley, a place where the aboriginal shamans would go to receive their guiding vision.
When I asked what my work was, I was specifically guided that I was to educate people how to work with “her” (Kundalini Shakti) to clear their chakras, through dance–movement, breath, energy work and sacred sexuality to prepare their bodies for a vibrational shift that was beginning and would accelerate to a point of intensity in the near future. Humanity and all life would be involved in that rebirth and if we chose to open our body/mind/spirits to “her” love, she would prepare us to deal with the earth shifts and harmoniously rebirth ourselves as the new enlightened humanity.
So that is how my journey began and my embodiment and devotion for the Divine Feminine, Shakti began to grow. I had no idea I was embarking on a journey in the exploration of transformational alchemy. The science of awakening consciousness, I was to become a techni- cian of ecstasy, a mapmaker and guide to the realms of the soul. I was to be my first experiment. The road to the top of the moun- tain was long, and I had already been on it for lifetimes.
My devotion to the Divine Feminine deepened. I surrendered to her to show me the way, and the more I surrendered the more she showed me.
My quest for soul-level liberation continued and I began to deepen my exploration of the chakras, both as energy centers that carry emotional energy and also as holographic memory banks that retained blueprints of the soul’s journey.
I came to see working with the chakras as integral to supporting the journey of awakening. I have found that working with the chakras provides an integral journey map, that gives the “ initiate “ an opportunity to truly embody the transformational process.
I have spent the last 33 years teaching and developing this tantric shamanic dance practice that we have come to call Kundalini Dance.
I am in awe of the power and depth of this work. It touches my heart so deeply to witness the authentic, raw human expression of pure emotion that brings so much vitality and power back into the body and soul.
I am on a mission to inspire women to be fearless creators of their sacred work. I have found that the best way to re connect a woman back to her power and her passion is to resurrect the power of Shakti within her womb, to teach her how to turn on her inner light and in that spark the her inner genius.
For over 15 years I have been training facilitators and initiating priestesses and it is my greatest joy to support a women to shine brighter to unleash her from whatever is dimming down her light, keep her small, shut down and lead her to her source of power, where she can connect to her authentic voice, her deeper desires and create a life that she was born to live.
I am constantly humbled to receive the count- less testaments to how the Kundalini Dance work has changed lives. This work is dance — and it is so much more than dance. It is from my deepest heart and soul that I unconditionally offer this gift to you. May you help awaken many souls through this process.

For the past 15 years I have had the joy of guiding transformational journeys and retreats weaving Kundalini Dance, Feminine Leadership and Ecstatic Embodiment. Cultivating spaces for activation, connection and remembrance as a dance activator, astrological guide, alchemical priestess and sacred feminine mentor.
After discovering Kundalini Dance in 2006, everything in my life changed and I became dedicated to sharing this work. Certified in this transformational practice for the past 14 years, I have had the opportunity to work closely with Leyolah Antara, the founder of this work co-facilitating retreats and facilitator trainings in British Columbia, Bali and around the world.
It truly lights me up to guide and support other women stepping into their medicine and embodied feminine leadership. Holding a loving space for coming home to oneself, to remember their unique essence and shine that into the world. Walking the path of awakening and transformation, so that they can feel more empowered and inspired to fully embrace and share their gifts with the world.
As a facilitator, I love to uplift, inspire and hold space for transformation through deep journeys that bring a nurturing and playful spirit to inspire others to connect with their own joy, passion and authentic selves. Weaving in ceremony into all my offerings as my devotion to the divine and desire to create safe and sacred spaces for self-healing and presence.
As a Priestess of the Goddess and the Lineage of the Rose, I am guided deeply through the wisdom of the Divine Mother, Mary Magdalene, Venus and the Sophia Christ Consciousness, devoted to the path of beauty and the way of love. Deeply moved by the cycles of nature, of the cosmos and our innate inner rhythms that guide our lives. I feel so blessed to be able to share this path of ecstatic embodiment and joy and meet you here in the heart.

I discovered Kundalini Dance in 2009 and it flipped my world upside down, spun it around, and filled in all the spaces in-between with feminine frequency. It was exactly the medicine I needed at the time for my most loving liberation and soulful remembering.
With each chakra dance I would learn to embody these alchemical keys that set me on a 180° path of deep healing, transformation and soul remembrance of freedom and love. I danced as much as I could over the years but all the local facilitators moved away and I knew I needed these alchemical keys in my body and as a daily sacred practice in my life in a bigger, bolder way. I patiently and passionately waited for a few years until Leyolah hosted an international training and I made the decision in less than 30 days to follow the womb-call to fly to Australia in January 2013 to begin my next revolution of awakening and empowerment.
The KD training (and each dance since) is profoundly grounding and exquisitely expansive. I re-learned how to deeply trust my body, inner knowing, and womb wisdom. I re-patterned how to take up space, own my personal power, and express my authentic voice. And I cultivated a deep soul knowing of my own sacred wisdom and my creative purpose. I reclaimed my Priestess crown, sat on the throne of my womb and knew that I needed to share these healing keys with women in my community so they could feel this good too.
It’s been such a magnificently powerful journey over the past 13 years years of this sacred practice, and even to this day it is one of the biggest gifts in my personal and professional life to hold the sacred healing space for myself, and my heartfelt community, to continue to amplify feminine frequency, remember infinite worthiness, and re-claim our radiance.
I have such infinite gratitude and loving bows to Leyolah for being the Founder and fierce-loving guide of this revolutionary work. By dancing this practice we are activating light grids around the world as we dance our sacred selves and honour our remembering. Here’s to walking the beauty way together, dancing our divine design and letting love move through our medicine vessels.

In 2013 I was initiated into Kundalini Dance under the tuition of Leyolah Antara. At the time of my immersion into this powerful tantric shamanic practice, I had a kundalini awakening, which led me to dedicate fully to this work. After a couple of months deepening into the teachings, I spent one month training to become a priestess in Bali. Life has never been the same again – dormant codes in my DNA were switched on, and I was propelled towards my purpose.
For the last 7 years, I have been holding transformational dance journeys bringing a fresh edge to ecstatic awakening, guiding those who come to the temple with my experiential gifts. As a Ceremonialist, Kundalini dance priestess, Munay-ki teacher, Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator, Womb Awakener, and a former Mental Health Nurse, I have been sharing the magic of bridging heaven and earth, encouraging people to channel their soul’s truth, as they awaken their inner healer, reclaim their sovereignty and open up to the limitless potential within their lives. I love to create a safe sacred container that allows my tribe to awaken parts of self that they never knew existed through breathwork, dance, sound, and complete authentic expression of all that has been suppressed whilst journeying alongside them. I am passionate about sharing medicinal ceremony that supports people in deepening connections to Mother Earth, Father Sky, power animals, and spirit carers, therefore, empowering the journey further. All ceremonies I hold are a celebratory experience to realign your life and your sacred purpose. Designed to assist you in raising your Kundalini; the serpent energy that lays dormant, once arisen, will burst through your paradigm, and a new world will flow.

Gratitude From Women
What previous participants have to say:
‘Diving into the Kundalini Dance training was next level, I was completely open to the infinite so I could truly let go and surrender to all within myself. Guided through sacred prayer, intention, dance, breath, movement practices are like portals to go within and beyond your physical being. The guidance of this sacred practice is intense self healing and full power, it activated me on a cellular level. I have opened and deepened to what i am calling my activation of my super human powers. I was re-birthed by fire, kundalini serpent fire. Thank you Leyolah for being a divine channel, teacher and guide. I am eternally grateful.’
– Noeleen Melissa Joyce, Sydney Australia
‘When you train to become a facilitator of Kundalini Dance you are not only learning tools that will help you to guide others and inspire their transformation and evolution. You will also develop inner capacities that help you to navigate through the challenges of your daily life. As you dedicate to this practice, you become more heart centered and deeply anchored in your sacred feminine power and intuition. Previous trainees have likened the facilitator training journey to that of a priest/ priestess initiation into the sacred alchemical temple arts as you deepen in your service and prepare to become a guide for others to connect to the Divine within themselves and without.’
-Kaitlyn Field, USA
‘The Kundalini Dance facilitator training was a powerful initiation connecting me to the divine life force that dwells with in me. I learned new skills to shift old beliefs and patterns that were limiting my capacity to experience joy ecstasy and bliss. Moving the dense energy of fear, anger and shame from my body and dancing it into the light of love. As a facilitator I have witnessed the transformational power of this work change the lives of those who choose to open themselves to the creative abundant life force that flows through us. I am so grateful for this work and the gifts I have received from it.’
-Snow Marks, Alaska USA
“The Kundalini Dance Facilitator Training has transformed me in many ways on all levels of my Being. I have come into my Divine feminine essence which continues to evolve and grow in the practice and in my life. I now have the confidence with my vulnerabilities to hold space for others to unfold and flower with radiant love. I feel I am softer as a woman, more authentic, honest and open-hearted with myself and others. My gifts continue to reveal themselves in the practice. To share these alchemical keys is truly an honour and a blessing as I witness others transform. It has been the most powerful transformational pathway for me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Blessings Leyolah you are the true embodiment of Shakti. I am eternally grateful for the gifts you so open-heartedly share with the world.”
-Tara Fischer, Sydney Australia
“As I sit here editing photos from Kundalini Dance Training….I can’t stop laughing, cracking up… and crying…all at once. What a life changing, clearing, deep bonding, refreshing, challenging, rewarding, powerful, wild experience….with such amazing soul sisters!!! Feel truly blessed! I keep doing my Kundalini Dance keys and breaths every day…I’m addicted. This is the best natural high. It’s so empowering and revitalizing. Tingly vibrating hands is my new standard plus a beating, expansive heart chakra like I’ve never felt before! I reach these ‘no mind, complete ecstasy, oneness, flame bright’ states……. blending this masculine and feminine energy within….bursting inside…and feeling this sacred union. Everything is amazing peace. Any worry or fears are instantly transmuted. I’m so connected to my inner guidance and held by mother earth. And most of all…I’m just so content…I don’t need anything. I can’t wait to share this with the world. All happening. LOVING LIFE. Thanks so much to all the wonderful women on this training. You have touched me deeply.”
