disciplines we transmit

Egyptian Yoga

Egyptian yoga focuses on verticality. Breathe through simple and dynamic postures, to reprogram body and spirit. These postures are among the oldest in the world and well documented in temples. 


Caroline Chevat

Sufi Meditation

Sufi meditation focuses on breath and sound vibration. The vibration of the words have a strong impact on all chakras especially the heart chakra.

Claudia Heinle

Sufi Dance 

Egyptian Sufi dance stands for the ancient tradition to induce trance and to unite with the divine. A way to purify the whole system and to strengthen the body through holistic movements.

Claudia Heinle

Zar Dance

Egyptian zar dance stands for the ancient tradition to heal body and soul through dance and rhythm. A way to transform and integrate difficult emotional states - to become whole again.

Claudia Heinle

Combat Dance

In Egyptian combat dance we use a stick. This martial art is still practiced and has links to Ancient Egypt. Develop the male principle inside you, feel the power and learn to play with it.

Caroline Chevat

Rhythm on Daff

The daff is a round frame drum traditionally used in rituals and sacred contexts. The vibrations, sounds and rhythms emerging from the drum skin of this instrument are transformative in nature.
