Workshop Leader – Danceformation ™
“Dancing has always been my passion. I began choregraphing, competing and performing in shows as a young child. It was a beautiful way for me to go inward when life outside was difficult, chaotic or confusing.
Dance has allowed me to feel present, to learn to really love my female body, to feel my emotions in a safe space and to fully express myself. When I dance I feel my true essence and connect to the divine in the most joyful way!
Dancing has been my meditation and a resource for personal healing and transformation. Through my own journey and studying various healing modalities over the past 20 years, including clinical hypnotherapy, NLP, inner child work, psychotherapy, bio dynamics, somatics, breathwork, bodywork and yoga, it is now my divine path to share this unique mind body movement medicine with other women around the world.
I believe that our wounds are our mission in life. Everything that happens to us is happening for us. Our personal story and life experiences can inspire and help others.
I look forward to guiding and supporting you on your unique Danceformation”!

Workshop Leader – Healing Masculine & Feminine
My name is Magda. I am a sensuality & relationships coach. I work with women, men and couples helping them feel more sensual, bringing back the art of seduction, deeper connection and wider intimacy.
My lack of self-acceptance has caused me a lot. I stayed away from men, love and relationships until my late 20s. I was simply to scared that someone could see the “real me”, and then they would leave. The fear of being rejected, because I wasn’t embodying the real essence of femininity, has also caused me to battle depression by the time I was 27. I was fighting suicidal thoughts and attempts to hurt myself physically more than once. I was disconnected from my body, sensations and most of pleasure.
My own journey of healing has brought me to discover Tantra, Theta healing, sacred sexuality and reprogramming of subconscious programs. I finally started releasing layers of social conditioning around what it means to be a woman, and how to relate to others, allowing my true, wild and passionate self to come out.
