What does dance do for you?
As a dancer, coach, and writer, one of the things I love most is hearing you, my students and clients, express yourself from deep within, to get that connection, to take the time to listen to yourself and feel what is deep within waiting to unfold. It has always been one of my biggest joys in helping you find the words, to feel that explosion of feeling and being able to say it, write it, articulate it. To find the way to say what you mean, to find the way you want to feel, and to find the ‘thing’ that brings you joy, self-connection, and connection with others. To love yourself. To open up. To find your own beauty and body and acknowledge it too. With pride and strength. And meaning.
That is what brought about my whole concept of Dance and Desire: From the Body to the Page. (this course is now available to you!—see below), or as an in person workshop and retreat! (See our annual retreat on our Events page–coming up in April, 2017).

Here is a poem I wrote I wanted to share too…
The Sacred Temple
Of my soul
Housing the beauty
Engaging the opening, enraging the fire
Fully, to reach the wholeness
Spreading the story of grace
The devadesi within dances on the flames
Feeling the wildness
Ecstatic union with myself
Finding the ripeness
Lusciousness of the rainstorm
As it feeds the soil
I feel it seeping into my pores
Awakening that sleeping queen turning nymph
In the garden of delight
Running wild and rampant
Retreating in and stirring those embers
Oozes its juiciness nonstop
Eyes rolling with the continuous
Birthing of vision
Eye candy, gorgeousness
Rampant, exquisite orgasmic life
Unleashing the wild and
