Founder, Teacher & Creative Director of Shiva Shakti Dance.
Holly Wodetzki thought she was destined for a life of science and academia… certainly not dance. As a passionate yogi, she enjoyed the rigours of disciplined training and esoteric philosophy for more than a decade. It wasn’t until 2011, in the privacy of her lounge room, that she discovered the wild-hearted transformative power of dance and the embrace of Shakti.
Sensing that she’d discovered the calling which would change her life, Holly threw herself into exploring as many forms of dance and eastern mysticism as possible.
Her main teacher is Guruji Raj Kumar Baswar of the Bhairavanand Tantric lineage. She is endlessly grateful for initiation in Kashmir Shaivism through the Siddha Yoga lineage, teacher training and ongoing inspiration from Michaela Boehm, the wisdom and meditation practices imparted by Sahajananda of Hridaya Yoga, Monika Nataraj’s inspiring mystical approach to dance and teacher training, and the sweetness of devotion transmitted by Guruji Saroj Dehury through Odissi dance. The synthesis of all these disciplines is Shiva Shakti Dance, which Holly founded and began teaching in 2012.
Now a full-time dance facilitator, writer, and sought-after speaker, Holly’s mission is to light a path for women to awaken their feminine essence through connecting deeply with their sexuality. She loves painting, performance art, gardening, singing along to songs in foreign languages, and dancing with and for her husband.
Shiva Shakti Dance
Shiva Shakti Dance is a unique devotional dance practice developed by Holly Wodetzki, to allow women to express and embody the two divine polarities that exist within them — their Shiva aspect (a.k.a. the masculine principle of consciousness, unwavering presence, and stillness) and their Shakti aspect (a.k.a. the feminine principle of universal energy, radiance, and love).
By fusing ancient spiritual philosophy with modern science (along with a keen awareness of the everyday stresses on the modern woman), Shiva Shakti Dance allows women to connect with the innate beauty, power and wisdom that lies within.
