Belly Dance was created thousands of years ago by women to help prepare for birth and all of the phases of a woman’s life. Open to all women, this class will cover how to heal ourselves by moving our vital life force energy as well as information specific to the birth journey. The benefits of Belly Dance practiced in this way are innumerable. Most often, women report positive shifts in their body image, self-awareness, self-love, healing past traumas and less physical pain. Mothers who belly dance in the birth journey often experience less lower back pain, more trust in the natural process of birth and gentler labors.
Michelle Dionne has been teaching Sacred and Healing Dance since 1998, blending specific movements from various world dances and spontaneous expression. Her teachings emphasize the importance of self-exploration, self-empowerment, self-love, dedication to an embodied spiritual practice and a large dose of good humor!
In the past few years, she has been focusing on healing Belly Dance and Birth Dancing, by the demand of her students. Michelle danced during both or her pregnancies and labors, enjoying blissful, gentle births. She is very enthusiastic to share the secrets of this ancient dance to help women and mothers feel trust in their bodies’ natural ability to give birth to babies or a new experience of themselves.
