Would you love to inspire your dance practice, tap into your inner dancing muse OR learn this ancient art form in the privacy in your own sacred space?
Would you love to immerse yourself in a holistic ongoing resource that expands not only your dance practice but your entire life?
Hey I'm Acushla, thanks for stopping by to check out my Online Temple Space membership!
I've created this ongoing and ever expanding membership for women (or men) who are wanting to tap into the creative power of their body through bellydance, harnessing the 'superhuman' qualities of flow states and activate more passion and purpose in their life.
The Temple Space is where all of my bellydance courses that I have created over the years (PLUS new work) will be all in one spot! YAY!
The bellydance blueprint Body Temple Space inspires women who would love to learn tribal fusion bellydance (beginners welcome!) and also for teachers who want a guaranteed formula to craft choreography and prepare you for improvisation. I have a passion for teaching all about trance and flow states (I'm a qualified acupuncturist and hypnotherapist), and help dancers unlock their creative flow and fall in love with the "process" which develops mastery fast!
The bellydance blueprint is a course within the Temple Space (there are several courses in there!) that provides a step by step process to diversify your movement vocabulary and harness the healing power of trance states through strategies, lessons and ancient exercises.
Unlike other courses that only focus on mainly teaching specific styles and combos, i teach a blueprint that guides you to feel confident in not only developing technique but also creating your own authentic movement alchemy (while learning plenty of combos also!) and I have been on this mission of empowering dancers for over 15 years.
To feel satisfied as dancers (and people) it is vital to feel PASSION with what we are doing, to feel completely in alignment with our PURPOSE and able to harness the FLOW state (which is how our artistic expression feels effortless and magical).
This membership platform will have two components, firstly the fusion bellydance lessons PLUS The Passion, purpose & Flow videos and audios

- Releasing resistance so you can step into flow more easily and become more present in the creative process.
I have found that my dance life is not separate from other areas of my life, and every aspect of our being influences our expression, our blocks, creative flow, emotions, ability to focus and discipline as dancers. By working not only on technique (or choreo) but also our "inner" selves, we can unlock a wellspring of inspiration, passion and joy!
This intensive program will transform your perception as a creative belly dancer!
The Bellydance Blueprint aims to provide a thorough understanding of good body mechanics and muscular understanding and how it directly relates to the core of Middle Eastern Dance movement and Tribal Fusion Belly Dance.
I started creating this format back in 2012/13. My aim is to empower dancers to find their own style and to tap into the joy of creating their own work that feels alive! I believe that the process of creating your own work that feels authentic and aligned with who you are, is the key to feeling empowered, fulfilled and consistently inspired, which is the key to maintaining regular practice.
The teaching methodology has been developed as a result of 12 years experience in American Tribal Style Belly Dance (certified ATS teacher), Tribal Fusion as well as incorporating key concepts from Classical belly dance and Classical Indian Dance (Bharatanatyam).
What level dancer are the lessons designed for?
There are a range of levels in the Online Temple Space, so dancers of any level will find value in the trainings. More videos are uploaded all the time!
Can i teach the Bellydance Blueprint format/formula
I am happy for you to teach ‘some’ concepts from the formula (with credit given), however if you would like to teach the entire BluePrint, teacher training is the next step for you. You will need to have completed Level One prior to teacher training. Send me a message if you are interested!
Is the Temple Space designed for only tribal fusion dancers?
The style is mostly influenced by tribal fusion, however you can easily apply the concepts to oriental style. A previous oriental student mentioned that she incorporated elements from the bellydance blueprint course to her own oriental style and applied the process, and she found it to be a fantastic approach.
How long will it take for me to complete the Bellydance blueprint
If you choose to subscribe to the membership option, 2-3 lessons will be uploaded per month. If you are a more advanced dancer and would like to finish the process quickly, i suggest purchasing the entire course in full. You can later subscribe to the membership platform as new work is uploaded as well as the new component: Passion, purpose and flow lessons.
How do i access the course?
Once payment has been processed you will be emailed information on username and password to access the course. After logging in, you will be in a private ‘membership’ site where all videos are available in an easy format.
Can i unsubscribe any time?

It's very helpful and I feel I am already beginning to get inspiration as to how I can structure my own personal practice in terms of developing my own dance vocabulary.
