There's an immense potential dwelling within you yearning to be fully expressed. 

You feel it don't you?

Do you dare to let your heart quiver with bliss?
Let your body dance wildly around sacred fires?

Dissolve your inhibitions in the soft caresses of rose petals? 

Are you ready for love to pervade your entire body?

"Holly's Shiva Shakti retreat has been life-changing for me on every level - I am so much more embodied & centred and in touch with my sexuality & sensuality at a much deeper level than ever before - in fact I don't believe I was even in touch with my sexuality prior to the workshop - and realised on day one that my sexuality & consequently my sensuality & joy in life's little pleasures had been shut down & lost to me.

Also at my mature age, I was still defending a deep childhood wound of not being seen & not being of any interest - so it was a complete revelation to me to be seen & held & encouraged to show myself & to share myself and my joy .... for me this experience was all about love & acceptance - of self & others and an honouring of the divine within us all - Soooooo nourishing on every level - AND you get to dance your sweet arse off for 4 days in glorious feminine company - so much FUN!"

"Everything about the retreat nourished my whole being and especially my nervous system.

The opportunity to switch off from technology and my everyday responsibilities, as well as immersing myself in the practices surrounded by pristine nature was enormously beneficial.

Having the time for integration and deep rest after dancing was a true gift.

Holly and her team held us in a peaceful, safe container where all expressions or versions of ourselves were welcomed and celebrated.

I felt a profound shift/release from doing some of the practices on this retreat that I have done before in a workshop but this container allowed me to go deeper.

The food was incredibly nourishing and delicious too.

Thank you!"

"I arrived anticipating a delicious dive into embodied expression and hoping that immersing myself in this way, would carry me deeper than I had gone before.

My expectations were far exceeded, and I have emerged with a new and enduring feeling of inner radiance and grounded happiness.

This experience was expertly facilitated, and truly transformative."

Frequently Asked Questions

Hear about other women's



"At first I was shy about dancing in general, not being aware of what my body could do and how I can control it. Shiva Shakti Dance has been the best dance practice I've ever had because it's sexy, alluring, challenging and beautiful. Being able to let go in a studio and learn about the feminine sacred energy is something I will take with me forever and consider a lot in the future when it comes to relationships, how I fit into the world and how femininity is connected to nature. Most of all I'm grateful because there is just nothing like this elsewhere and it is something that needs to be recognised, appreciated and practiced by all women to get in touch with fun, freedom and desire in the world. It is inspiring and taught me how to love parts of myself that I didn't know I could."

Hear from real women who’ve experienced the power of Shiva Shakti Dance...


"As a woman with many roles in life (mother, wife, business owner) I often find myself living from a place of 'force' ... stuck in the daily 'doing' and the masculine approach of achievement. I needed to remember the power, pleasure and ease that comes from being more balanced in the feminine and this workshop helped reconnect me to my sensuality and juiciness! Thanks Holly, it was fabulous!"

- Kim

"The devotional erotic dance workshop with Holly was a joyous blessing which opened my heart up like a flower blooming in response to the loving and supportive environment. I found it not only a pleasure to be there but also experienced it as a true need which I had not previously known existed. I left with great insights, a new love for myself and other women, a greater understanding of the masculine and feminine energies and the joy in their sacred union. Extremely intense, pleasurable, revolutionary. Truly needed in this world."

- Lidija

“Shiva Shakti Dance is a life changing work. I have seen multiple shifts in all areas of my life since starting this work. I continue to grow, heal and expand after every class and workshop and I am constantly surprised and how much deeper I can go every time.”

- Mae

I came to find my femininity again after having to shave my head for medical reasons and to find my womanly self expression, I was terrified and nervous to begin! The workshop held me and nurtured me to open up and blossom and the immense support and love I felt over that weekend has left me with a lingering key to the essence of what it is to be woman. Such a valuable experience for every woman. It was extraordinary and life altering. Thank you!”

- Bianca

“Honestly this is what I have been looking for! I'm astounded by the transformation of not only myself but all the women who do SSD! I have to say I tend to not gravitate towards workshops or courses, but that's only because I hadn't really experienced anything that provided so much value for money until I did this course. This is a transformational course and I'm so glad I took the jump and did it! Without really knowing what I was in for, I have absolutely no regrets I feel I am a better person for it and have gained something within myself that I wouldn't really have been able to grasp or fathom until I had done it. So I highly recommend it to all women! and I'm so amazed and grateful for what Holly has created. Its magical to see everyone transform by the power of their own thoughts and reconnect with their body and feminine side. It's like witnessing a flower bloom! and I say this with 100% conviction, I'm blown away!”

- Breanna

“Doing this course was the best thing I have done in a long time! As an incredible shy, awkward, homebody person, dancing with Holly has brought my desires and sensuality back from the dark and into my life again. I absolutely loved every minute of it and anyone sitting at home thinking, or wanting to know how to become an erotic and confident woman, HAS to do this course! I am so glad I took the leap.”

- Amanda

“The 2 day workshop provided a nurturing environment which encouraged personal growth through the exploration of sensual and sexual development. Holly is an amazing woman who inspires you to embrace your body and all its deliciousness; to work through your inhibitions. I learnt to embrace my femininity and swim in all the lusciousness that comes with being a woman. I took away a sense of freedom to enjoy my curves and all the joy that it brings within my relationship.”
