The CONSCIOUS DANCE FESTIVAL was created by Dhyana Vargas and Kabiro (Lara Ubago) – two big lovers of conscious movement. They met while traveling in India, discovered their common passion for dance, and meditation, and decided to collaborate in the creation of these festivals.
The first edition happened in Berlin in 2017.
Their intention is to share their joy and passion with the community and to bring more aliveness into this world by bringing together other dance and movement lovers and seekers.
This Retreat Edition is a collaboration between CONSCIOUS DANCE FESTIVAL and OSHO Afroz.
Also known as Dhyana Danceleg (born in Colombia, based in Berlin), she has been a big lover of music and dance since her early childhood. Soon she would discover the night life and the joy of dancing for long hours in the clubs, disappearing in the dance and loud beats. Already in Berlin she encountered the OSHO active meditations, which use dance as a way to stillness and silence. She discovered a totally new approach to movement: dance with totality and awareness as a doorway to herself, as the fastest path to her feelings, as a form of unity with the whole. Dance plays a main roll in her life as it fills her with joy and opens a space for her to relax.
Dance has always been very important in Kabiro´s life. Her father owned one of the very first discotheques in Spain and from an early age and through her own body she learned how free and total
dance can be of great benefit for the soul.
Later on in life she engaged deeply in other forms of dance, becoming an oriental dance teacher and a very keen practitioner of 5Rhythms, Authentic Movement, Rio Abierto System and Ecstatic Dance.
She is a certified breath worker, bodyworker and art therapist, as well as a producer for fashion films.
