TATIANA ZAMIR is a healing arts conductor, performance artist, and trauma-informed movement therapist who has been walking a path of evolution, transformation, and deep personal inquiry her whole life. In her dance classes, healing arts retreats, and performances, she employs her unique movement therapy method developed over a lifetime of training and exploration of the body as a vehicle for our highest destiny. Zamir studied and performed as a dancer and choreographer in the World Arts & Cultures Department at UCLA and developed her natural skills in the healing arts at IPSB Life Energy Institute. From her base in Los Angeles, her work has taken her to Bulgaria, Argentina, Namibia, Senegal, Cuba, and Bali. In 2020, she premieried her dance film Dreams of Waking at the LA Dance Shorts Film Festival and won the 2020 Audience Choice Award. Also in 2020, she received the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Grant from SoCal Grantmakers to support her ongoing choreographic project In My Skin created in 2018. As both a healer and an artist, Tatiana holds a uniquely compassionate space, which catalyzes transformation and aids people around the world to embody their joy and live unapologetic, creatively-fulfilled lives — whether in her Afro-Joy Dance classes, her performance art, or movement therapy-based healing arts workshops and retreats.
