Lasya The virtual dance studio

Lasya in Sanskrit means ‘grace’. The term Lasya, in the context of Hindu mythology, describes the dance performed by Goddess Parvati as it expresses happiness and is filled with grace and beauty. She is believed to have danced the Lasya in response to the male energy of the cosmic dance of Tandava performed by Lord Shiva. In a literal sense, Lasya means beauty, happiness and grace. 

Vision of Lasya is to spread happiness through dance across the world through online Odissi classes. It’s a platform to develop grace, strength, flexibility, focus, discipline & will power through this beautiful art form.
