Dance Your Bliss is a system of personal transformation using music, movement, sacred expression, poetry, art-making, and dance. It is the study of the body’s inherent wisdom.
People have a need to feel joyful, creative, and intimate. We are born with all the healing we need, but somewhere along the way we forget. Dance helps us remember. It clears out the cobwebs and lies that we tell ourselves about our unworthiness.
Dance cuts right through the bullshit and shows us who we are and who we are becoming.
When you attend a Dance Your Bliss workshop, you will:
- Improve energy and vitality
- Inspire a happier, more joyful outlook
- Build confidence
- Improve body image
- Help battle depression
- Ease pain
- Improve sleep
- Develop mindful awareness
- Lower blood pressure
It all started when…
Dance Your Bliss was developed in 2000 during Rachel’s tenure as a clinician at a psychiatric hospital in Philadelphia.
“I would see patients who were severally depressed, or mute even, start to come alive,” says Rachel.
“I worked with women and girls with severe eating disorders. They hated their bodies and were literally trying to leave their bodies. I drew from hatha yoga, guided imagery, breath work, and relaxation techniques. I found that this mix gave my patients the glimmer of hope they needed — a way to reconnect with the good within.
Time and time again, I saw that when people move with permission, safety, and compassion, they go to a place of relaxation, trust, and self-love. I see this in every class I teach."
While amazingly skilled and deeply grounded in many techniques and therapeutic modalities — it is Rachel's authentic presence that gives her work such power. She shines her light in all areas of her work — whether she is teaching or in one-on-one counseling. She literally and virtually moves individuals into expanded creativity, new possibilities, and greater fulfillment.
