"A beautiful journey"

Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to Vanessa and Stephanie for such a beautiful journey! It was an eye-opening experience! I remember leaving each session with serenity! The dances helped me to embrace my feminine side to a larger extent while angel cards helped me to deepen my understanding of both the inner and outer world! I wish I could describe it more, but I feel words are not capable of explaining the emotions, feelings, and wisdom I have been blessed with due to our guided journey with these two beautiful souls! Heartfelt thanks! 🙏🏻 ✨ – Lyila

"A focus on self-expression"

“The workshop is a special time to focus on inner self-expression and awareness supported by two inspirational ladies who are a guiding light to all who dance with them.” – Vienna, Austria 2022
