Revital is the perfect teacher for students looking for a mind-body-spirit connection in their exercise experience. I took Odissi Dance and yoga classes with her for about 2 years and loved the balance of flexibility, strength training, endurance, discipline, graceful movement, self-awareness, and spiritual centeredness woven into her sessions. Class with Revital is sure to make you look, and feel like a goddess.

Performance Highlights

Odissi Dance is as disciplined and difficult as mastering a violin concerto; and yet when I watched Revital dance, the moment was the only thing there was–timeless, spacious–it was everything, everything.
