Let me move you! I offer classes, workshops, retreats and custom experiences with Somos LucerosArcanaDance™, and Somatic Dance-Yoga.

I believe my purpose in life is to serve as a conduit for others to awaken to the wisdom and joy of the body.

I am a somatic alchemist. I create and facilitate embodied movement experiences that support you in having a more loving, kind, pleasurable, respectful and empowered relationship with your body. I want you to feel vital, whole, strong, flexible, mobile, stable and in harmony with your unique body.

Whether it’s through Somos LucerosArcanaDance™,  or Somatic Dance-Yoga, I am a masterful somatic facilitator, bringing compassion, playfulness and joy to any experience. My guidance is simple, clear and will allow you to move your body in ways that honor and align with your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual capabilities and values.

My maiden name, Lucero, means “bright star.” I am excited to move, groove and share my light with you.

Movement Offerings

Somos Luceros – We are light, embodied. Somos Luceros is a somatic dance practice designed to illuminate the wisdom of your body and cultivate deep embodiment of archetypal qualities that offer lightness, depth and joy. The dance moves are simple and guided by the language of storytelling, opening new chapters in our bodies where we can see and feel our most luminous potential. Release the stories in your body that weigh you down and reclaim your light. In Spanish, Somos means “we are” and Luceros means “bringers of light” or “bright stars.” This name honors my father, my paternal indigenous ancestors in South America, my heritage, and our collective oldest ancestor, the stars. We are dancing bodies of light.

ArcanaDance
™ –
The tarot, embodied. If tarot cards could dance, this is what they’d look like!  Created by me, ArcanaDance™ is a fusion of tarot and movement that feels like dance therapy. Arcana is defined as a secret. Dance is defined as movement to music. When fused together, ArcanaDance™ is defined as a secret that is revealed through movement.

Coming Home to Ourselves Somatic Dance-Yoga Practice brings together movement as metaphor with the expanse of yoga with the intent to guide us to deeper embodiment beyond the yoga mat. These classes include simple yoga postures in dance form, mindfulness prompts, various meditation practices, the application of mantra (in English and Sanskrit), mudras, and the weaving in of the rich and deep yoga philosophy that guides us into deeper levels of self-knowing. I am a graduate of the 300-hour Honor Yoga’s Roots Yoga Teacher Training with Ignite Yoga and Wellness Institute.

Stretch and Fly, co-created by me and Liziah Richards (www.liziahtherapies.com) is a unique empowering movement practice that combines simple dance moves and yoga. Experience original choreography that blends flowing movement and dynamic stillness.

Beautiful World Jan 16 and 17 2021 (1)Join me for Dancing for a more Beautiful World: An Embodied Tribute to Justice & Sacred Activism

This body of work is an expression of my hopes and dreams for embodying a more humane presence on this sacred planet we call home. Inspired by the tarot card of Justice and one of its archetypal expressions as sacred activism, Beautiful World celebrates and invites us to embody the qualities of solidarity, activism, truth, ancestry, humanity, hope & unity.

Together we will explore and embody removing veils of division, offering our respect and reverence for the balance that earth and humanity provide, share in solidarity even as we struggle, to advocate for each other, to honor our ancestors and their struggles for justice, to listen deeply to one another, to experience joyful and passionate resistance as we dismantle the past and shape the future, and to offer our hopes and prayers for healing and unity.

I created this body of work after the US election in 2016. It was always my intention to share this routine again around the time of the 2021 inauguration. No politician or political body will save us, It is up to us to hold them accountable with our awareness, activism, and accountability. When we are civically engaged and move from a place of conscious collective and compassionate responsibility, we become the embodiment of justice. Let us deepen our embodiment of these qualities in our shared dance.

The dance moves are simple and guided by the language of storytelling. You are invited to receive the choreography, bring it into your body and make it your own.

Yoga Dance Jan 19 2021Coming Home to Ourselves Dance-Yoga Practice is a somatic dance yoga practice that brings together movement as metaphor and the expanse of yoga with the intent to guide us to deeper embodiment beyond the yoga mat. This practice is about befriending your body and reuniting with it as a sacred beloved and noticing how your mind and body work together to create harmony in your life.

The focus/theme of this Tuesday’s class is Cultivating Spaciousness to refresh and restore the body, mind, heart and spirit.

When we cultivate space and spaciousness in our body-mind, we are able to access depth, width, height and dimensions of energetic boundlessness. As we are still in the beginning of the new year, after a previous year of unprecedented stressors, we continue to cultivate openings of all kinds for stress to release and for a refreshing of our body, mind, heart and spirit. Join us for this practice that guides us on an opening and expansive somatic journey where we create inner and outer space for a fresh start.

This class includes simple yoga postures in dance form (alternating fluid movement and stillness), mindfulness prompts, various meditation practices, the application of mantra, mudras, and the weaving in of the rich and deep yoga philosophy that guides us into deeper levels of self-knowing and unity of mind and body.

Wear comfortable clothes to move in. Make sure you have a yoga mat or towel. Feel free to also have a blanket or pillow to sit on for the seated portion of class.

We do not do any weight bearing poses in these classes. This practice is truly gentle and I am working towards making yoga accessible. If you would like to see a sample class, simply email me and I will share the link and password with you.

If you are new to language I have used above to describe class, here are some simple guiding definitions:

  • What is movement? For this class it is body postures in motion. We will take simple yoga asanas (poses) and embody them through a dance that blends fluidity and stillness.
  • What is mindfulness? A quality of focused awareness to the present moment and of our sensations that includes our body, mind, and emotions.
  • What is meditation? Various experiential practices and techniques that support mindfulness and focusing our mind and body.
  • What is Mantra? A sound, word or group of words (such as affirmations) that aid in mindfulness, meditation and focusing the mind and body.
  • What is Mudra? Hand and body gestures that both ground and move energy in the body.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the class/meeting.

Class is 75 minutes long.

Some helpful tips:

  • If you are not familiar with Zoom, this webpage offers excellent instructions: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting
  • Log in to Zoom a few minutes (5-10) beforehand. If you arrive late, after I start teaching, I won’t be able to grant you access to the room. When you log in, you will virtually ushered into a “waiting room.” As soon as I see that you are there, I will grant you access to enter the Zoom room where we will be dancing together. This extra time also allows us to greet each other, check in and play with the sound together 😉
  • You may want to use a wireless headset – it appears to be a good way to hear the music more clearly. If not, feel free to hook up a speaker to your laptop, tablet or phone OR use the speaker in the device you are using. It’s all good!
  • Find a place where you have some room to move around freely.
  • When entering the Zoom meeting, put yourself on mute.
  • Make Sure Your Sound and Video are ON – there’s a way to test this on your screen.
  • Select “Speaker View” on the top right corner of your screen to have the image of me large and clear.
  • Enjoy the class and each other <3

There will be no in person classes in the near future. I will continue to heed the guidance of the CDC and local government professionals. Let’s all do our part to flatten the curve.

Feel free to share this invitation with others!

Looking forward to dancing with you online until we can resume dancing together in person.
