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 ArcanaDanceNia, 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.
