We have been told from early in life how to be and now not to be. When you dance what is there, you can allow the suffering of these voices to be burned away as you dance, revealing the essential life energy within each feeling – that is our birthright. Then we can celebrate, and relax into being ourselves. read more
You will receive tools to transform difficult moments, and to communicate in a constructive way. In these increasingly uncertain times, these tools are essential for resilience in the face of change. read more
Welcome to Dance Alchemy
Dance Alchemy is a powerful transformational process using dance, expression, self-acceptance and meditation. Energies and emotions are held in the body because of conditioning. When we express these through the body, we have the possibility instead to live our emotions and energies as they are, which in itself brings joy. In a climate of acceptance and non-judging presence, these emotions transform and reveal their essential qualities; deeper sensitivities, greater understanding, new strengths. We are no longer divided against ourselves. The resulting feeling of wholeness and happiness opens the door inside of us to connect with our authentic being.
This is the alchemy of transformation.

They will have full certification after the Teacher Training.

What Participants Say
Just wanted to reach out and express gratitude for the workshop. You gave me access to a life of feeling which is a priceless gift. There is a fear that I will lose this understanding but now I know I can dance through that also.
Maneesha was a tremendous guide throughout this entire process. She really threw her heart and soul into this journey! Through the parameters of intensity, emotion and awareness I was able to uncover deeply held beliefs and understand old patterns. This was an experience unlike any other I’ve had through meditation. I consider myself fortunate to have been part of this group. Can’t wait for the next adventure with her!
For me the groups “The Power of the Heart” and “The Body Remembers”, indispensable from each other, have represented the most true, clear and deep meaning of the Alchemy of Transformation, when the caterpillar becomes the butterfly.
It is clear that Maneesha has a wealth of practical wisdom that comes from years of her own experience in the field of dance and transformation. I learned a lot and look forward to continuing the journey with her! And I recommend this work to anyone who wants to get in touch with themselves.
I disappeared into the dance and enjoyed it fully. Thanks to her training of Dance Alchemy I have learned the precious gift to transform “negative” energies through dancing.
