IMG_8266Join Lisa for Classical Odissi Dance Practice, modeled after her teacher Colleena Shakti’s Shakti School of Dance curriculum.

Odissi is one of 8 classical dance forms of India, and our particular lineage comes from Padma Vibhushan Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra.

Our practice class consists of: conditioning and technique exercises, breath work, light yoga warm-up, strength training and stepping.

Qualities needed for this practice: dedication, consistency, inner strength and stamina, a deep desire to train the body and mind in a very technical but devotional art form.

Our Santa Barbara practice has completed for 2017. We will continue in Summer of 2018. I am available for private one-on-one Odissi lessons live and online via zoom
