Janie Crick, Empowered Movement

janie Edit3 W

Join Janie Crick for an Empower Movement Playshop. This movement class is for movers and shakers of all ages, sizes, and movement backgrounds. Step into your most empowered self! And then Step onto the Dance Floor!

“Our physical bodies are the sacred vessels where the Divinity of our Spirit resides. Our greatest goals as both highly enlightened and physical beings is to honor, nourish and replenish our physical bodies. This allows us to release any energies or limiting beliefs that may be blocking us from complete alignment. Through movement, spacial awareness, and partner exploration, we tune into the subtle energies of the body. This allows us to act from a place of elevated authenticity, reminding us what it means to be truly free. Free from the external influences of societal shame. Free from the internal stories of self-doubt, unworthiness, and guilt. Free to be whoever YOU want to be.

Shake your body! Stomp your feet! Move the energy to shift your perspective on how you embody your temple! Give yourself permission to energetically release anything that no longer serves your highest good! Then fill that newly made space with Love, Light, Truth, and Joy!”
