Trusting the process is the foundation for release and healing. Utilizing embodied expression takes us on a journey that allows us to dig deeper into ourselves and reveal the essence of where we came from, who we are presently, and how we want to move forward. It is with this awareness, I’ve become passionate about helping communities find freedom, faith, and empowerment within their bodies and inspiring them to constantly look to movement as a source of knowledge and support. Change is power, acceptance is grace, expression is release, and dancing through the struggle will continue to motivate us as we navigate the complexities of life.
