SHAKTI DANCE The Yoga of Dance Inspire Your SOUL!

"Shakti Dance™ is the most profound and powerful practice I have EVER experienced!" -Carole Fontaine

Shakti Dance™, the Yoga of Dance, is the perfect fusion between the Wisdom of Yoga, the peacefulness of Meditation and the Freedom of Dance. It is inspired by Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and was created by Sara Avtar from England. I learned Shakti Dance™ under the guidance of Dharma Devi who is the USA Lead Trainer, and Shakti Dance™ School Director and founder in the U.S.

Shakti Dance™ is at the same time an amazing and unique technique, which gradually guides you into a new dimension of well-being and awareness, infusing grace, elegance and a new level of consciousness. Profoundly healing and enriching, Shakti Dance™ brings sacredness into your lives. ​It will AWAKEN your CREATIVE POWER and INSPIRE YOUR SOUL.

Shakti Dance™ classes are 1-1/2 hours, and consists of restorative yoga stretches, guided dance movements, breath work and meditation. Beginners are welcome and NO yoga or dance experience is necessary. The practice is gentle and adapts to one's needs. 


The Yoga of Dance will shape up your body, raise your energy levels and focus your mind. After a class you will feel energized, centered, inspired and blissful! It is the most comprehensive all inclusive practice I have found for physical and emotional health.

Listen to an amazing testimonial from Barbara Verchot, a Kundalini yoga teacher at the Kundalini Yoga Center of Altamonte, FL (Orlando). Barbara highly recommends the practice!

​​​​​​​​"Carole - what an absolute thrill to experience your Shakti class this morning with you! I love the blending of meditation, stretching, yoga, dance, chant, chakra care - it had it all! It is exactly what I most need right now and I can't imagine a better teacher of this beautiful process than you. Thank you for following your bliss and then bringing it to Deland!" -Linda

"Just experienced Carole's Class and it was an awakening of the senses and transported me to a higher vibration of Shakti energy, which I am still experiencing and enjoying! Don't miss this class, it is transformational!" - Pat

​" Basking in the afterglow of my first ever Shakti class taught by Sea-Goddess Carole Dion Fontaine! I must admit I was super resistant and nervous... & am so glad I showed up and danced like a fool anyway!" -Paige
