BIOGRAPHY OF ZAFIRA SASHA
Once upon a time there was a white light that from heaven descended to stay in the heart of a girl who, through it, gradually takes over her whole being, her mind and her body, filling her with life, beauty and a consolidated purpose, discovery of talent and will, pushing her to express herself with the harmonious movement of her dance, creating and projecting her magical essence, which, we can see and appreciate in her various performances and in her classes as a teacher, transmitting a school itself, in the service of health and integrity aesthetic / cultural environment and community.
All this has formed her as a teacher of Belly Dance and Yoga instructor, currently in Marbella and throughout the Costa del Sol. We highlight the education of Zafira Sasha, as a Pilates monitor, technique in hypopressives and bodybalance.

Her curiosity for these disciplines arises precisely in that city, where the Andalusian and Mozarabic atmosphere is breathed in every corner. Zafira Sasha, born in Cádiz, has gone through different disciplines, aligned with her passion for dance since childhood.

The racial character that distinguishes her, typical of its origins, brings extraordinary strength and a unique sensuality that fascinates the viewer. Play and flow of poetic subtlety, between movement and gaze (of incredibly beautiful and expressive eyes), the power of intention and hypnosis of an excellently worked body that snakes, within this millenary mystical practice, as if floating in a sea full of eroticism and mystery.
Her masterful command of the sword, the silk fans, the candle-lit candleholder, the wings of Isis, crótalos, fire fans, veil etc ... in perfect conjunction with her physical and contortionist qualities of her belly, are the fundamental axis of her work. Spectacular climax of all her performances and immense talented versatility. Showing her art as a soloist or group in the oriental dance company "Egyptian Eyes", with musicians and singers who form it. Zafira Sasha bathes gifts, elegance, talent, grace and beauty. We are talking about a truly "Queen Bellydance Aristocrat."
