Katerina Sokolova
Qualified Yoga & Dance Teacher
Many years ago, as a result of a strong inner impulse, I walked out of a promising sales career & stepped into complete uncertainty; & from that emerged my new incarnation. The impulse told me to give up my home in Russia & move to the West Coast of India. I obeyed that impulse, although I didn't know the reason for it & in India I discovered Yoga & Meditation. I decided to dedicate my life to their practice & after many years of studying & travelling I knew that I should share my knowledge with those around me. I now work freelance & teach people here in the Charente region of France.

Timetable

All of my classes are drop in & my regulars are of various backgrounds, nationalities, ages & skill levels. Don't be afraid to come and give it try. We are all friendly and welcoming. The classes are taught in both French & English.

Tribal Fusion

Our regular Tribal Fusion Belly Dance class is open to all levels of experience. We are friendly and welcoming to all new dancers, come & be part of an amazing tribe. Dancing will allow you to be strong, confident & self aware.

Tribal Fusion


Belly Dance


Lesson Plan

During the lesson we will connect with our feminine power & open the door to our natural beauty. In the beginning of the lesson we'll do some warming up using Vinyasa flow yoga to prepare the body for dance. We then move onto hand movements as this is the key to becoming a great tribal dancer, we do this whilst trying to connect the movement with soft steps. Along the way I will give detailed explanations of each main tribal posture.

Now it's time to have some real fun & practice actual tribal techniques & dance chords. Towards the end of the lesson its shimmy time (hips shaking), eventually we'll connect the shimmy with the head, then the hands, followed by the other parts of the body. We then finish off with some nice stretching yoga asanas to warm down.

Yoga Nidra

Have you ever wanted to be completely relaxed? Yoga Nidra allows you to become increasingly aware of the inner world through guided meditation. Our goal is to reach a state called samadhi, let's try it together, the benefits are incredible.

Yoga Nidra


Deep Meditation


Lesson Plan

Yoga Nidra is practised in the yogic pose called shavasana, this means you get to lay down on your back on your yoga mat or blanket. I will then adjust your position to make it the most comfortable it can be, using small pillows for the head & cosy blanket to cover your body, this will reduce sensory stimulation as much as possible. You will stay in shavasana during entire practice which will last around 40-45 minutes.

The aim of Yoga Nidra is to reach a state of consciousness between waking & sleeping, a state called samadhi. To achieve this you will follow my voice as it takes you on an inner journey of complete relaxation, you will become systematically & increasingly aware of the inner world.
