The Goddess Groove: Belly Dance Inspired Workshop

Fall In Love with Your Body!

Your tummy is your powerhouse AND intuition center. It’s quite ironic that this very area of our body is what we tend to judge the most. In this workshop we will learn how to love your belly and your body. We will:

1. Practice graceful moves that activate and strengthen your “secret weapon” (a.k.a. your pelvic floor), soften your hands and overall appearance, magnetize and enchant the audience.

2. Learn a choreography that is based on the practiced moves.

3. Become more sensual in dancing and life in general.

4. Tone your body

I work your body from head to toe effectively and intensively with joy and ease. You will see immediate results in your energy levels, posture, and overall flexibility.

5. Surround yourself with like-minded, positive sister goddesses who will uplift your spirit and might become life-long friends.

6. Walk away with a cheat sheet so you can practice after the workshop

The awesome benefits don’t stop there, but there’s only one way to find out… It’s time to awaken that beautiful inner powerhouse and intuition center! Bring out the goddess within by signing up for a class. Your tummy will thank you. ?

ALL OF THIS FOR A PRICE OF A LUNCH! Stop with your excuses that there is no time, money, energy, etc. True goddesses invest in themselves

So, darlings get your groove on! ($20 per person)
