Tannoura | Whirling

Learn the mystic art of Tannoura/ Whirling.

We explore deep centering and core activation practice with  exercises to stabilize balance. Then learn turning techniques and foot patterns to access  this ancient method of moving meditation.

It is believed and practiced in many cultures, from the famous poet Rumi and Whirling Dervishes, to Tibetan Monks to different Wiccan/Pagan sects that Whirling or turning can bring the body in to harmonious balance with our swirling universe. Find a moment of stillness in the chaos.  It is studied that practitioners experience good balance, healing and a spiritual Oneness. 

Nawal has studied and practiced Tanoura for 15 years with teachers from Egypt. Join her for an upcoming workshop February 4th ONLINE:

"I did many dancing classes before but didn't experience how friendly & cozy Nawal is. 
I took her private classes and I enjoyed every minute with her; she helped me indirectly with my breath technique, she explains every single move or technique. She's very talented & has her own styling. I definitely recommend her for everyone who needs to explore more about dancing."
