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.
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.
Nia, co-created by Debbie and Carlos Rosas, is a cardio-dance practice that combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts. Nia puts pleasure and joy at the center of your movement experience. I am licensed Black Belt Nia teacher and have additional training in the Nia 5 Stages of Self-Healing, MOVE IT and Moving to Heal. See Nia in action.
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.

After teaching Nia in Seattle for the past 7+ years I bid farewell to my beloved NiaSeattle community on Sunday, October 8, 2017. I plan to teach special classes in Seattle during my visits in the coming months and years. Until then, check this space for information about special upcoming Seattle classes and a new schedule in Southern California. Thank you, Seattle community, for truly some of the best years of my life.

“A woman is a shapeshifter, flowing from one life stage to another, just as each season gradually becomes the next.” – Joanna Powell Colbert
From birth to our preparation for death, women experience distinct phases of maturation and becoming. Each phase corresponds to the Moon and her various lunar cycles, reminding us that we are intertwined with the power of nature.
When we embody the beauty of these phases, we can flow more easily with change, reclaim our natural rhythm, draw deeper wisdom from our history and apply these energies to shape our legacy.
This ArcanaDance workshop invites you to:
- Experience the dance of each phase
- Learn how each phase corresponds to lunar cycles
- Explore the phase you most desire to embody
No tarot or dance experience is required. Tarot decks will be provided for use during the workshop.
ArcanaDance is a fusion of tarot and movement that feels like dance therapy! Using imagery, music and guided movement prompts, ArcanaDance makes personal growth fun, empowering, multidimensional and transformative.
