“Over the five weeks that we spent discussing the class concepts such as the root, the core, the heart, and the crown, as a teacher, I got to dive deeper and explore a part of myself that I rarely looked into before. It was such an insightful opportunity and I carry what I've learned from it everywhere I go.”
“The Mindfulness for Dancers class was inspiring and very beneficial! In my everyday life I suffer with anxiety and have received a bunch of generic tools to deal with anxiety in therapy, but a lot of my issues are comparison and perfectionism issues toward ballet. That is why this class was amazing. I have my journal full of so many new tools and sayings that are truly fantastic and that are very helpful to look at if I need a boost of energy!
“The Mindfulness for Dancers Book and Syllabus resonated so much with a few students that they even organized their own self care class for the younger students in the school- all inspired by MFD! I am grateful to be involved in this shift within the dance community. ”
“Ahh your introduction video was so lovely! The students were so engaged with the class, the first one went so well. “
"Our well-being matters and seeing the next generation of dancers embrace this is a true gift. Especially during this time, I have already been witnessing students advocate for themselves and their needs in a new way. This alone has absolutely made our work together so much more enriched and nourishing. I can’t recommend teaching or bringing Mindfulness for Dancers to your community enough."
