From the School of Mystery, Sacred Dance & Feminine Arts ~
Holistic Dance Language in person workshop with Zola Dubnikova in Tallinn, Estonia
26 - 28 May 2023
Dearest sister,
Welcome to join us!
During this weekend workshop in Tallinn we will learn specific physical practices and alignment tools drawn from temple dance lineages of India and beyond; we dive into Taoist Tantric practices to enhance our feminine lifeforce; we use the breath as inspired by Sufi practices, to open inner channels of ecstasy and devotion.
Movements are combined in a powerful series, designed as a devotional ritual, movement prayer and powerful way to strengthen and center. The practices guide us in developing serpentine grace, inner power, core strength and deep expressive grace. We practice isolations, “inner” movement technique, subtle expression through body language & eyes, “priestess” postures and ritual sequences.
Through our dance, we awaken the dormant powers of the ancient temple dancers, in a way that applies for women of today. We explore the evolution of contemporary sacred ritual & feminine practice.

Workshop includes:
• Earth practices (slow movements with focus on deep inner listening & release)
• Movement medicine & energetics, physical training & breath re-patterning
• Contemporary body science & sacred physical geometry
• Sacred feminine teachings
• Exploring the relationship of our sexual centers to all the energy portals and vital organs of the body

Practices to open the inner gates:
• Heal and empower the inner gates using ancient Taoist methods, Taoist tantric yoga, vocal meditation and holistic dance language practices
• release unhealthy physical patterns & tension
• cultivate a deep sense of humbleness, gratitude and surrender
• reconnect us to our divine source and the wisdom carried within
• open the doors of spiritual ecstasy & intuitive power
• work with archetypal energies to source deeper vitality & empowerment

About the Holistic Dance Language ~
Pleasurable embodiment, diverse physicality, subtle body language, ritual movement and inner alchemy are the main elements of the holistic dance language curriculum. Informed by ancient tradition, seeped in contemporary somatic/body science, infused with movement medicine and immersed in sacred dance inspired across time and worlds, the practices revive our hidden (forgotten) abilities, creating pathways of remembrance in the body. Through the practices, we have the power of complete metamorphosis and enhanced communication at our fingertips. The earth-based foundational work guides us to trust the ground beneath us more, deepen our roots and “fly” from a supported place. Connecting to our pelvis, to the earth and to our voice gives us deeper roots. Connecting to the heart, we open the sky. Through the work we access deep softness, grace and potent strength. We release blocked energy, and build inner power. We learn a unique vocabulary of movement, mudra and subtle energetic principles. Through a combination of slowed inner listening, breath/sound work, focused practice, and liberating trance-inducing movement, we bring our prayers to the physical world, planting the seeds of our dreams, our deepest missions, within every cell of our bodies.

Zola Dubnikova bridges sacred dance, movement medicine, contemporary body science, somatic awareness and ritual through her unique approach which she calls the “Holistic Dance Language.” Her extensive background fused with absolute devotion to the pursuit of dance as an ecstatic and spiritual experience, has given birth to a unique style of both teaching & performing – which truly embodies the marriage between form and spirit. Trained extensively in contemporary dance forms and healing arts as well as Odissi Temple Dance Tradition, Sufi tradition, Mevlana whirling practices, Dances of the Silk Road, the gypsy trails and beyond, her style brings forth the wisdom of ancient dance ritual through a holistic lens intended to guide more people in accessing their divine capabilities. Zola offers intensive immersions, training and retreat experiences, traveling often throughout the world to share her work, as well as guiding ongoing online courses.
