Tapping Your Inner Super Terrier

Superterrier-A

I know you’re out there. I’ve even had conversations with some of you. Strong, beautiful, courageous women. Doing amazing things in the world. Travelling to places I wouldn’t attempt to go. Maybe even climbing mountains and sky diving and…

Yet for some, the idea of showing up at WDT to dance freestyle in a group ranks right up there with being naked in the middle of a baseball diamond at a packed stadium.

I get it. Vulnerability is not fun. Doesn’t feel good. Messy.

Bad things happen to good people all the time. Also not fun. Doesn’t feel good. Messy.

So why would you ever invite or go so far as to embrace vulnerability when you can avoid it? Not go there at all.

Here’s what I think. Brene Brown is right. There is strength in vulnerability. Read more…

Women’s Dance Tribe Coming to Mahone Bay and Dartmouth

Women Dancing

Women’s Dance Tribe is a free-flowing, self-paced opportunity to move unself-consciously among other joyous women, in a beautiful, airy space with wooden floors. Simultaneously energetic and relaxing, this rhythmic class ignites a connection to self-expression, creativity and deep relaxation.”   - Colleen

At the Mahone Bay Centre (45 School St.) every Tuesday in June from 7 – 8 pm.

At the North Woodside Recreation Centre (230 Pleasant St., Dartmouth) on Sunday afternoon, June 12 from 2 – 3 pm.

No need to register. Just drop in. Cost is $15 per session.

Women’s Dance Tribe is something new and different. Like just about everything I offer, it’s intended for strong, beautiful, courageous women with a curiosity that’s peaked by the idea of exploring new frontiers. I’m the perfect guide for such an exploration. People, mostly women, have been moving to the beat of my drum in many ways for a long time.

After just one session in the inaugural six week series that started in April, the women who came said how much they enjoyed the chance to get out of their heads, and just move freely, with wild abandon. That was the real treat for them. So we scrapped the idea of “working” on any choreographed pieces. Too much thinking!

Now we just dance! At our own pace. Fast. Slow. However we feel like moving in the moment. Any fitness level is perfect. Welcome to Women’s Dance TribeRead more…

The Beat of My Drum

Be in this very first group of pioneering women over 40! I’m offering a totally new and unique six week series at the Mahone Bay Centre, starting on April 26th.

Spring is busting out all over! Time to stir it up with this combination of fitness class, drumming, and spontaneous and synchronized movement … to the beat of my drum! Have some fun while being active with other like-minded women.

Drums are provided. No experience is needed. Each session flows like a wave, ending in deep relaxation.

Heart Rhythms for Women is April 16

How’s your heart doing these days?

Beautiful spring days. More daylight hours. Birds and wildlife coming alive. New growth beginning everywhere. Perhaps you can feel your own heart opening as well???

I am so pleased to be offering my Heart Rhythms workshop again this spring at The Healing Space. As those of you who attended the workshop last spring know, the studio is on an island in St. Margaret’s Bay overlooking the water. The energy there is ideal for exploring matters of the heart.

Watch this interview to find out how Heart Rhythms helped Therese:

Therese_Interview-1

Therese attended the first Heart Rhythms workshop on Todd’s Island in April, 2015. She found it so helpful, she went to the second workshop in Lantz in September, 2015. In this 9 minute interview, Therese talks about what she gained from the workshop, and what “exploring matters of the heart” means to her.

If you’re on the fence about whether or not to register for this workshop, hearing what Therese has to say about it may help you determine whether or not this workshop is a good fit for you.
