Let me move you! I offer classes, workshops, retreats and custom experiences with ArcanaDance™, Nia and Stretch and Fly.

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 create and facilitate 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 ArcanaDance™, Nia, or Stretch and Fly, 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.

Nia in Dana Point – Fridays October 12, 19, 26 & November 2, 2018 

October in Dana PointThe Body Literacy Series

Join me for this introductory series focused on exploring body literacy and how to become more attuned to your body’s signs signals.

To be literate means to read. To be body literate means to read the body and it’s signs and signals. Essentially, body literacy is to know yourself fully and deeply.

In Nia, there are four languages we learn to become literate in our four bodies: the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms. We live our lives in all four realms and we always have the opportunity to become better attuned to the messages these realms have for us about how to live healthier and more fulfilling lives.

The physical realm is where we tune in to the messages of our physical body – from the skeletal and neuromuscular systems to the muscles, bones, joints, and connective tissue. The mental realm is where we tune in to our thinking mind – from our memory, beliefs, habits, creativity and consciousness. The emotional realm is where we tune into feeling – exploring our emotional depth and range and what information our feelings give us about how we move or can move through the world. The spiritual realm is where we tune in to the what makes us unique – from our connection with the divine/source/God to our values and what holds meaning for us.

In this series we will devote a class to learning how to embody deeper literacy with each of these realms – all through the practice of Nia routines that invite us into these explorations.

This series is excellent if you are new to Nia or want to deepen your practice.

ArcanaDance™ – The Dance of Intuition: Exploring Inner Knowing through Tarot & Movement

Priestess ArcanaDance CA“Once you awaken your intuition and get in the habit of listening to and acting on it, every decision in your life will become reflective of your inner truth. The trick is not to try to work out all the answers in your head. Rather, take whatever information you need into your body, trust your gut, then dance or meditate or walk or do whatever you need to enter a relaxed state of being and you’ll know what to do. You always have and you always will.” – Gabrielle Roth

In the tarot, the High Priestess card represents the archetype of inner knowing, our intuition.

Intuition is not about seeing into the future, it’s about hearing and honoring your inner truth. This archetype provides a loving framework for us to access, listen to and trust our inner knowing.

Coming to this ArcanaDance™ workshop will allow you to:

  • Discover how your inner knowing speaks to you through your body.
  • Deepen your intuition.
  • Develop a practice that honors your inner truth.

ArcanaDance™, created by Jennifer Lucero-Earle, is a therapeutic practice designed to facilitate self-discovery, empowerment, transformation & healing through a fusion of tarot, guided movement & music.

No tarot or dance experience required. All are welcome. Tarot decks will be provided for use during the workshop.
