Chakradancer is a Nia Routine that is danced to beautiful music, but with no verbal cues from the teacher. The silence that surrounds the space allows you to go deep into your body as we move together.  It is a wonderful gift to give to your self.

Dancing the chakras is a beautiful way to align your energy and get your body, mind and spirit into a state of equilibrium. When these energy points in our bodies are in balance, we are better able to function.  No previous dance experience is necessary.

A Doodle Playdate can light the spark and get you inspired and motivated.  It is also a great way to relax and de-stress.  You will learn new ways to create doodling streams, explore different marks that make doodles more interesting, and have a bit of fun, laughter and lightness along the way.


Doodling elevates focus and concentration
Doodling allows for deeper learning
Doodling isn’t just for artists or “creative types” ... Powerful people doodle.
Everyone is welcome.  This is not an art class. No artistic talent or experience is needed.
It's a "creativity-ignition experience".
