|My brain is concerned with getting things right all the time,
afraid to make mistakes, eager to please. It makes it very difficult to
be creative at times for fear of being judged.
Maria's creative dance class opened my head and spiritual body to
the beauty of being carefree and vulnerable. This class allowed me
to get out of my head and just move the way my body was telling
me it wanted to move. I smiled, I cried, I felt peace.
Do your body a favor, stop listening to that little voice in your head
and take this class.
-Regina Sayles (singer-songwriter, performer)

A special note from Maria about "Dance Your Spirit":
I'm so happy to offer this beautiful dance experience to you, "Dance your Spirit".
I looked within myself to see what it is that I share that really supports and
inspires the people I teach and this is IT!
Dance your Spirit is about...
Healing. Joy. Peace. Love. Flow. Happiness. Opening. Release. Support.
Guidance. Inspiration. Awareness. Honesty. Acceptance. Compassion.
Sharing. Growth. Expansion. Living your Spirit.
Dance your Spirit is for dancers and non-dancers ~ those who love to move and
those who know they need to move.
Dance your Spirit will get you grounded and connected to your body.
It will help you to open and process emotions (e-motion: energy in motion),
which flows and expands your energy in all areas of your life.
It will teach you how to love, care, respect and support yourself.
