Dance your way into the Mardi Gras, Brazilian Carnaval spirit in genuine Samba style. Samba is a lively, rhythmical dance authentic to Afro-Brazilian people.
Samba actually comprises a set of dances - rather than a single dance - that define the Samba dancing scene in Brazil. No one dance can be claimed with certainty as the "original" Samba style. Deeply steeped in the tradition, Natalina introduces you to an authentic Brazilian Samba in its shimmering variety. Price: $25. View Full Details »

Apart from creams, infusions and costly cosmetic procedures, there is a much deeper, more effective way to enhance your face and your smile. With small precise movements that include your eyes and jaw, we will not only relax facial muscles, smooth out wrinkles but also soften the jaw, eyes and neck. This will widen your face and improve your entire appearance as the spine elongates. Then you can walk queen-like or king-like to your Valentine’s event - or wherever you want to go - feeling fantastic inside, looking great outside. Price: $59. View Full Details »
This month’s theme: The Cosmic Dance. “If you don’t do your dance, who will?” – Gabrielle Roth. This Cosmic Dance Red Tent gathering welcomes women of all ages and lineages to celebrate the full spectrum of life together. The Kumu Lipo is the Hawaiian chant of creation. It tells of the emergence of existence in the midst of swirling life: ponahakeola. Shiva Nataraj – lord of the dance in Hindu mythology – represents endless dissolution and re-creation in the beautifully balanced dance of the Cosmos. Let’s explore the different parts we each play in the ongoing dance of creation. Price $15. View Full Details »

Many of our basic life functions require a healthy pelvic floor: digestion, elimination, reproduction and breathing. If you want to improve the function of the pelvic floor, you have to learn how to contract and relax all of it, in a balanced and more equal manner. This is what makes your pelvic floor healthier and stronger, using all parts, coordinated with your whole body. This workshop will help you to discover how to sense and contract the pelvic floor in all directions combined with easy movements of the whole body. Price: $59. View Full Details »
We all want love! Yet the word love can be so elusive, so changeable. In this Valentine month session, we invoke the love that lies in the depth of our being. Through breath, sound and movement, we coax it to fill us and the field around us, so that love never has to leave us. What does it feel like to deeply love yourself? Through movement, breath, drawing and automatic writing we explore self-love until “love fills everything” and “will overflow its banks”! Price: $33. View Full Details »
