Awakening Heartfelt Connections:
A Journey into Dyadic Dialogues

The Movement: Journey Within

This potent experience isn’t just a session--it’s an adventure into the heart of your own being and a doorway to self-discovery… an exploration of your own rhythm and resonance.

Under the enchanting orchestration of Suzanne Summers' captivating DJ beats and the compassionate guidance of Trauma-Informed Yoga Instructor Angie Clark, we invite you to a space like no other. It's not about the mastery of yoga poses or perfect dance moves; it's about the synergy of music and movement as instruments of healing, transformation, and self-discovery.

We invite you to engage with the rhythm of somatic movement, to explore the unfamiliar, and to courageously embrace the wonder of what's within you. As the music flows and your body responds, a deeper connection with your own self begins to spark.

Whether you've never set foot on a dance floor or yoga mat or whether you're an experienced mover, this experience is for you. All you need is an open heart, an open mind, and a willingness to discover the depths of your being.

It’s time to ignite your journey, one beat at a time. Are you ready to dive into the depths of your being?
