Kàartik means "Son of the Pleiades” a spiritual name received in India as a certified Yoga teacher at the International Center for Yoga Education and Research by Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri. Born in Trieste as Denny Fiorino to big-hearted parents, a polish mother and an italo-croatian father, I grew up in the circus life of performing arts and clubs before studying contemporary dance in New York and theater in Italy. I've danced extensively BharataNatyam classical indian dance with Ujwal Bhole and practiced Moving Breath, a creative method by Sheela Raj combining Yoga, dance and voice. She introduced me to Kalani in Hawaii where I’ve been initiated to the rituals of Hula sacred hawaiian dance, Huna the ancient shamanic healing and to Ecstatic Dance music and movement community. I’ve founded Indiemotion Art a project / platform producing performance art, developing creative methods of art therapy and promoting regenerative culture.

K.Y.D.S. stay for Kriya Yoga Dance Shakti, a creative method designed by Indiemotion Art for the body-mind-spirit integration. A playful sound and movement journey through conscious actions (Kriya Yoga) to free inner potential and expand the creativity (Dance Shakti). K.Y.D.S. is a poetic ritualization of life movements that allows us to perceive the vitality of our body harmonizing the emotions into a meditative state of mind. Following the symbolic principles of Shiva Nataraj, the hindu cosmic dancer and master yogi, K.Y.D.S. is a transcendental experience through five stages: evolve, maintain, break, imagine and be. Facilitated by a storytelling and music selection we explore the evolution from animal moves to human patterns maintaining till the beat deepens as an electronic tapestry of world rhythms and we break free opening the imagination for self healing gestures and present moment embodiment.
