Happy transformative 2020!

I hope this beginning year has been bringing you many moments of ease, joy and magic 🙂

Please join me this February and March for the last two in-person workshops for a little while, before I take this bellycious offering on the road… and start delivering it in a digital form!

More on that soon…

In the meantime, if you’ve been meaning to come out to a workshop, but haven’t been able to – this is your chance!

In case you cannot make those dates, but would still like to experience one of my workshops before April, you can get in touch with me (either here or by messaging my FB page) to book an online private/small group class – no mirrors necessary!

Time to give thanks before taking a Summer break ❤

Thank you, Hillside Festival, so very much for your support and such a gracious, warm-hearted welcome!                                                                                                                            And to all those who got me there – you know who you are…

Boundless Love and Endless Gratitude to all my guides, teachers, mentors, early and enduring supporters, willing collaborators, curious first participants, fellow journeyers, forgiving friends, and so many more… for showing me the possibilities!

Deepest Appreciation for those who trusted and opened their spaces, event slots and retreats to my offering as Mindful Belly Moves started to take bolder steps into the world… may your own endeavours take flight!

This heart offering continues to grow, teaching me how to let it come through me with all the healing, magic and sheer Love & Light that it brings.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Summer magic!

Happy Spring/Summer!

In this changeable time of transition between seasons, I am excited to announce a special edition of Mindful Belly Moves at Bampot Bohemian House of Tea this month!

Run by a truly inspiring pair, Bampot is an enchanted, cozy and welcoming refuge of a teahouse, full of comfy nooks and beautiful art, that offers delicious treats and hand-blended tea elixirs to soothe the mind or invigorate the senses…

Price includes a lovely pot of tea, so whether you’ve been intrigued by this place or curious about my workshops, this is the perfect opportunity to explore both… take some time off your Wednesday afternoon and come over for tea and a shimmy or two!
