Let me move you! I offer classes, workshops, retreats and custom experiences with Somos LucerosArcanaDance™, Embodied Movement Explorations for Body Wisdom and Wellness, and Somatic Dance-Yoga. I also guide transformative somatic education experiences as a somatic movement therapist.

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 therapist and educator, and I love to say that 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™, Embodied Movement Explorations for Body Wisdom and Wellness, or Somatic Dance-Yoga, I am a masterful embodied movement 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.

Embodied Movement Explorations for Body Wisdom and Wellness  – A fusion of somatic movement practices that includes dance (including Shake Your Soul & Nia), yoga, QiGong, archetypal expression (mainly tarot), and other modalities that emphasize mindfulness and that guide self-knowing. In this class we center the experience of living, feeling, sensing and moving in our bodies. We learn practices to know ourselves more deeply, cultivate joy, restore from stress, explore creative self-expression, and ways to nourish the various systems (fluid, muscular, skeletal, organ, nervous, and cellular) of our body. Move your body, develop a deeper appreciation for the intelligence and wisdom of your body, and to learn practices to be well in mind, body, heart and soul.

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.

Somatic Interludes – A somatic interlude is a pause from your day to tend to yourself. We meet once a week, for one hour via Zoom, to take a break in community. During this hour there is no expectation or pressure to be anything or anyone other than who you are in the moment. This is a no pressure container to get to know yourself, and the voice of your body, more deeply. Together, we explore introductory somatic therapeutic practices designed to offer space for self-reflection, revelations, resourcing, and respite for our mind, heart, body and spirit. Practices include journaling, simple drawing, guided movement, mindfulness practices, and nervous system supporting breath and body sequences.

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.

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.

Join us for Dancing the Mother: An Embodied Exploration of Consistent Inner, Outer & Communal Love & Care

I am back from Tuscany and my mother’s birthday 82nd birthday is this weekend. Naturally, I want to celebrate her in dance 🙂

Mother is a big word that takes many forms. Let’s leave it undefined. Mothering has affected us in different ways. Let’s refrain from judging it. Mothering is an immense responsibility with big expectations. Let’s embrace the sacred responsibility and toss the expectations out the window. Mothering should be a choice, not a forced existence. Let’s honor that right to choose.

Mother is a sacred role that can be related or unrelated to biology and lineage. At the heart of mothering is the energy of care. Let’s honor the archetype of mother in whatever form resonates with us. For the internal mother, the external mother, and the community of mothers.

This dance invites us to embody various expressions that extends from the heart-center out to our fingertips. We reach, extend, stir up, set boundaries, gather, and hold close. Our thread is to be consistent in our attention and awareness of ourself…to be present and unrushed within the energy of care.

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.

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.

Yoga Dance: A Joyful Journey of Embodied Creative Self-Expression (In person in Carrboro, NC!)

Date: Saturday, June 1, 2024

Class Time: 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM (EDT)

Payment: $40

Yoga and dance have many embodied qualities in common, including unity, liberation, embodiment, nervous system regulation, and authentic self-expression. Yoga provides profound tools for self-transformation that are ancient and timeless. Dance brings forth longstanding ancestral alchemical sparks of creative expression, joy, playfulness, celebration, storytelling, and connection to self, spirit, music, movement and community.

During this yoga dance experience you will move to simple embodied movement prompts that are accessible to all because dance is a universal language that doesn’t require fancy moves or special skills. Sometimes we will move together in community and other times you will be invited to go deep into your own experience. This is about you tuning in to what lights you up and allows you to express a fuller range of your unique spirit.

Your guide is Jennifer Lucero-Earle, a trauma-informed registered Somatic Movement Therapist and Educator who has been teaching dance as healing classes for over 20 years. She is looking forward to dancing with you!

Wear comfortable clothes to move in. No shoes required. Feel free to bring a yoga mat for floor-based practices.
