Life is movement. We need to move, stretch, breathe and relax in order to thrive in our bodies and our lives. Our thoughts and feelings are directly connected to how our bodies are moving, or not. Conscious movement and exercise is the foundation of well-being.
Yoga and Bellydance are my favorite movement arts. Yoga helps to relieve stress, build strength & flexibility, and create peace of mind. Bellydance is an ancient art of feminine expression. It can serve as a workout, a meditation, a healing practice or just an outlet for creativity. Learn the basics of bellydance and discover how nourishing and rejuvenating this dance can be.

"I had tried many modalities to heal excruciating nerve pain in my shoulder, arm and neck. For six weeks I went from an orthopedic doctor to chiropractors, tried acupuncture, cranial sacral therapy and had several deep tissue massages, looking for relief. Some treatments made it slightly better and some made it much worse. Unbearable!
Within one week after my online session with Dawn, the healing I was looking for began to happen. Her ability to guide me through my emotions, to be present with me, and the pain and trauma from the injury, turned everything around. Within a few days I found my pain was reduced by 90%. I am continuing to work with her at a distance (Skype and zoom) to do further healing on this physical issue. So grateful for Dawn!"

"My biggest challenge before coming to Dawn was this feeling of being overburdened and lost, by so many thoughts and certain pressures in my life, that I couldn't function. After talking to Dawn, I realized that what I needed was emotional and spiritual healing. She was an angel there at the right time. Working through rough days with Dawn helped me understand my pain and my own strength to heal it. On good days, she really helped me refine my thoughts, asking me questions that helped to focus my creative inspiration.
Since working with Dawn, I really do see how my life has shifted. Using her techniques during challenging moments helped me to cope and move past them powerfully. In the beginning, Dawn gave me a grounding exercise to use when I had a hard time or felt anxiety attacks start to happen. It always helps me re-center and discover my inner strength and my connection to the world. I can weather any anxiety or outward stressor with that."
