3 Retreat Opportunities with Michelle in Maryland, Connecticut and California
SPRING & SUMMER 2019
an Interactive and Experiential Movement Day Retreat
"Dive into the Pleasure Principle"
3 Biodanza coaching retreats
A walk in the park
Cuddling with your furry animal
Eating good food
Buying yourself flowers
A bubble bath with candles
Tea with a good friend
Wearing clothes you love
Having you hair/make-up making your feel like a God/Goddess that you are
I could go on. But sometimes the way we FEEL about and SEE ourselves gets in the way of our experiencing pleasure.
We fear we are not enough.
However, when you love your body exactly as it is, you align yourself with the pleasure principle.
This movement/coaching retreat will allow you to unlock the pleasure principle that resides inside in your glorious body that is chained up
by the "monkey mind" that directs our thinking and blocks our expressing what we truly desire !
And I will be using the Biodanza system, an Internationally recognized from of healing dance that fuses science, art & love to create magic for YOU!
Our pleasure needs to be FELT and EXPRESSED.
Come unlock the body/mind protective armor and open to the possibilities that life has in store for you!
One lovely day
with love and laughter
what the people are saying about Biodanza movement!
Coming from a theater background, I have experienced many different movement and expressive modalities in my life, and thought nothing can surprise me. But Biodanza did! It is life giving, simple yet profound, and it has enriched my life. It is non threatening and so much fun!!! Recommended for anyone who wants to feel alive and connected to themselves and others!
Over the years, I have practiced yoga, 5 rhythms, contact improv and other modalities. Of all, the one that has resonated the most with me is Biodanza. While a bit structured, it is so organic. While gentle, it is so powerful. I have learned to connect with others and with the wisdom of my body in a safe space. The music moves me at so many levels. It is an oasis in the middle of a hectic week. Currently, I am learning about the importance of the regulation of the nervous system to heal emotionally and physically. A regular Biodanza practice supports this regulation.
I haven’t been this happy in 20 years. NM
Biodanza has truly changed my life. It has changed the way I live in my body. It has made it safer and kinder to express myself. It has expanded the avenues through which I connect to others. It has, above all, re-introduced me to JOY! That long-lost friend. 💓
My family and I recently moved to the US from Scotland and I can't believe how lucky I've been to "land" so close to Michelle and her wonderful group of biodanceros. It is such a blessing to be able to continue dancing down this path of self-discovery and self-love in the company of such a wonderful facilitator and such a welcoming community!
I had a completely amazing experience! I have been in a process of letting go and grieving some heartache and loss of a precious relationship, and I felt safe in that space to gradually let my heart begin to open up again. You are a powerful and healing presence to be around, and it meant so much to me that you gave us your time and energy in that way. I also have had issues with dance and movement, as I usually feel I cannot follow choreography and become intensely frustrated at trying to learn steps, start feeling like an idiot and have to quit. This form of dance was perfect for me because it was only what I wanted it to be and I didn't have to follow anyone else's steps but just dance my own heart dance. I felt supremely alive, beautiful, brave and graceful. ML

In the follow-up, we'll process your feelings and propose techniques that integrate your retreat experience with your daily life, using my experience as a Life Coach and awareness (as a Biodanza trainer) of your movement through the retreat.
