Helpful Tips for Newcomers & Etiquette

Please understand embodiment is a practice.We recommend at least 4 classes before you will have an inkling of what might be happening. We have been practicing embodiment for over 25 years and are still in the landscape of discovery. Each class is uniquely different, some days we may fly blissfully into trance states on others we may wade through the molasses of our human condition. The offering is to embody all of our 360 degree humanity.

• Each person is responsible for their own well-being and body during the entire class - pace yourself. There is nothing to prove or push.
• Please follow the instructions of the teachers as you might do with a yoga or salsa teacher.
• If you are new to this class it is natural to feel nervous. When we ask you to take a partner please do and know that we are here to develop boundary skills as much as freedom skills. Take your own authority as to what feels appropriate with each partner.

"She’s mad but she’s magic. There’s no lie in her fire." Charles Bukowski.
Kate Shela reminds me of the strength it takes to embody vulnerability and truthful expression. Kate’s dance classes are my gold. Kate guides her dancers beneath the layers, she wakes us from the inertia, from the numbness. She reminds us- to feel it is to heal it. She asks us: Do you have the discipline to be free?”
