"This practice has helped me peel the layers and find a new me"
Move The Earth
A sensual ecstatic dance for women
This class is about repossessing our our wild feminine,
reclaiming our sexuality,
and freeing our creativity.
It’s only when we allow this that we begin cultivate our limitless power…
As Women we hold immense power in our creative centers
(aka: our second chakra or our womb space), but we are often in conflicting relationship with this place due to the immense cultural programming and collective trauma we all carry in and around our sexuality. We can feel hopeless, detached, numb, or like we are “too much.” This keeps us from having the lives we want and the kinds of relationships and sex we want. It keeps us from pursuing our dreams and embracing our talents. It holds us back from being the powerful women we are in our lives.
Reclaiming our sexuality is imperative if we wish to find any sense of freedom, or power within ourselves.
The emphasis of this class is on developing a healthy
and loving relationship with Self. Each class is a journey diving into, and deeply exploring, our sensual expression through dance. We will practice listening to our body, to what it desires, and to how it most authentically wishes to express that. In doing so, we will begin to reprogram our limiting thought and action patterns into more empowered ways of being.

More About Move the Earth...
In order to eliminate the confusion, fear, frustration, and distraction that can sometimes occur in other mixed-gendered, conscious-dance practices, this class is offered to women identified people only.
The goal is to create a safe container where we get to play with this energy and express our sensuality freely. It is not about performing, looking good or pleasing anyone but YOURSELF.
What to expect …
A large portion of the class will be our movement practice where you will be supported and encouraged to invite your sexual energy out on to the dance floor.
we will practice simple guided meditations and movement exercises that will connect us with our womb space and with the energy of the earth.
At times we will have the opportunity to share and reflect our experience with others and with the group.
While this class will be focused on developing deeper self-love, that will include pushing ourselves a little outside our comfort zones.
It doesn’t always have to feel like drudgery! We will have loads of fun in this class!
The 7 phases of Move The Earth…
Like 5-Rhythms, the music will create a “wave,” meaning, there will be a variety of music intended to evoke different flavors of our creativity, and authentic expression. However, in this class they are specifically designed to evoke our sensual and sexual energies, sometimes referred to as Kundalini, Shakti or orgasmic energy. Our playlists use a variety of music including pop, hip-hop, electronic, vintage, blues, jazz, powerful female artists and much more...
The 7 phases are:
Wild and Fierce
Grind and Grit
What to Bring and Wear…
Please dress comfortably… AND you are also encouraged to dress in a way that feels sexy! What ever that means to you. This class is not about looking good, it’s about feeling good. But it is also about pushing your comfort zone in order to discover how your sensuality would like to express itself. It is an opportunity to turn a regular dance class into a living art experience! Have fun with it!
