I am Mike Skilbeck, also known as Niraj, born in 1963 in London, but brought up in York from the age of four. I was introduced to Biodanza in the summer of 1997 and completed the International Biocentric Foundation training programme, Tutor Training and Didactic Tutor Training over the course of the following 8 years.
In 2008 I started the Dorset School of Biodanza, located at Osho Leela in Gillingham, Dorset, where I also had the pleasure to live for seven years from 2005-12. We are now in the fourth cycle of the teacher training. Graduates have gone on to seed Biodanza in Czech Republic and Thailand.
I teach regularly in England and all over the world. I am bringing Biodanza to the attention of the world of tantra and have been successful with this integration by offering vivencias at many events for this community in the UK and abroad.
I also have specialisation certificates to teach Biodanza and the Four Elements, Biodanza in Nature, Biodanza and Shamanism, AquaBiodanza, Biodanza for Children, Biodanza and Massage, Contact Education, The Heart of Transformation, the Minotaur Project and the Argonaut Mission. I worked with Rolando Toro directly on many occasions and have been involved in Biodanza in England, Scotland, France, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Portugal, Greece, Slovenia, Thailand, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Norway, India, Israel, the Canary Islands and Brazil.
I was treasurer of The Association of Biodanza Teachers UK (ABTUK) until 2012, and was part of the organising committee for the First NW European Encounter of Biodanza held in Canterbury in June 2005. I have since organised and led ten highly acclaimed Festivals of Biodanza which are held at Osho Leela in Dorset. New festivals in Ibiza and Delhi, India began under my leadership in 2015.
