Theoretical analysis of light beam propagation in twisted nematic liquid crystalline waveguides is presented. Due to the optical reorientation nonlinearity, the light beam changes the direction of propagation and optical spatial soliton is formed. Modeling of such behavior is presented by using (2+1)-dimensional vector beam propagation method as well as simplified (1+1)-dimensional method. Although both approaches give similar results, the differences are discussed in detail.
