Banafsheh’s art is that she is able to reveal our best selves, our talents and unique capabilities. I have studied with her for more than 10 years. It has been a never ending desire to come back, to return into her embrace and experience bliss, activation and aliveness all over again! I always get in touch with my best self in her presence, not speaking of what has been brought into my creative life as a result of her magical work. I have earned freedom in my stage dance performances. I’ve incorporated movements from her classes into my daily exercise routines. I am mindful of my presence in my work interactions, and that I am responsible for making a difference in well being of people around me and especially of my patients.

Banafsheh embodies the One so well – she walks the talk as they say – really filling the room with light. As a teacher, I learned a lot from watching how Banafsheh creates a culture in the classroom, and she extends her heart to each student. It was lovely to watch a “master teacher.” Sometimes I find the spiritual “teachers” to be less able to teach their path, but Banafsheh does both so well. I take away the gift of seeing, hearing and being with Banafsheh, a great leader in the path of Love.

Erin McCall


Dance of Oneness® is the dance I had been waiting to do all my life. From a young age I had danced, read watched and followed Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Joffery Ballet, Margie Gillis, Gabriel Roth and many more than I can name that moved in a way that spoke to me. Dance of Oneness® is the culmination of all that I had been drawn to in the other dance forms which seemed to be missing the main ingredient. Banafsheh has found the missing thread which is the opening to the Beloved, to truly give yourself in movement to the Divine energy that resides and moves through all of us from the Earth and the Heavens. I felt that for the first time in our dancing. It also reintroduced me to my own body, allowed me to accept my imperfections and for the first time in years swim naked in the ocean. All of this and more.

Janet Sawatsky


Transformative! Banafsheh skillfully takes us step by step to an experience of dance that brings me deeper into my body, to peace, feeling grounded and open to beauty and to love. Most importantly for me, the process brought me to experience a lovingness toward myself. I appreciate her presence of gentleness and fierce passion, and I’m inspired to bring my best self into my world.
