Hatha Yoga meets African Dance

With Daphne and Teona/Bhuvanesvari in the greek village Paleros

From 14/9 to 21/9 2018


Dance is a natural expression coming from the innermost being. The same place we experience in Yoga and Meditation. This is an energetic meeting of Yoga and African Dance by a teacher who knows and loves it. Dance is worship with the body. When we allow ourselves to move from the inside out we dance our prayers and we move naturally into healing and harmony with ourselves and our world.

Traditionally in Africa dance, it comes along with a story, song, and ritual and was part of the seamless fabric of life. Traditional dance movements and sequences were often drawn from observations of the external world, the elements of nature and the everyday movements of people


Teona Devi


Teona/Bhuvanesvari was brought up in a medical family. She learned electro-acupuncture next to her dearest teacher and grandmother Eteri, so in an early age she had understandings about energy healing and self study.
She was involved with shamanic practices and ancestral rituals that gave her deep experiences of Life. During an intense travel to Mexico, while meditating, she realised that yoga was her way to live the truth she had seen. In 2013 she began her yoga and tantric sadhana (spiritual practice) and after a year she took a hatha yoga teachers training course in Sivananda Yoga.
She lived, served and practiced at the Sivananda Yoga and Vedanta Centre in Berlin for about a year where she engaged deeply into Karma Yoga and learned how to cook by the principles of Auyrveda.
In 2016 she was initiated into Kriya Yoga by Swami Shankarananda Giri and into Tantra by Guruji Raj Kumar Baswar.
Daphne is a dancer, dance teacher, choreographer and musician. She holds a Bachelor (BA) degree in Music (classical piano) and Dance (Bryn Mawr College, USA, 1994) and a Master (MA) degree in Dance Studies and Choreography (Laban Center for Movement and Dance, London, UK,1997). Her passion for West African dance and music inspired her to travel to many places (Guinea, Mali, USA, France, UK, Germany, Italy) to learn from experienced teachers and talented artists in the field. She has studied African dance, song and percussion (doundoun and balafon) with members of Ballets Africains
