Calling the perfect dance studio!!!

I am calling out to the universe to help me attract the most beautiful dance studio space to hold my Santa Barbara class. A space that has great energy and light, and where we can introduce the live drums at some point in the future. This space will be home for my dance class and […]

Dance Class Update!

After another amazing dance class at Golden Tree Yoga in SB last night, I found out that they are giving up their lease and moving on. So, I need to find a new space to hold the class asap. This is probably a good thing, as we need a space that can accommodate live drumming […]

You ARE what you eat!

Yesterday was an amazing day. I had a great yogalates class, and Budhi and I got a lot of work done for our business. We are making contact with a lot of people and organizations who are very interested in what we do. I taught a voice lesson to my student and she did so […]

Dance to Health

I had another inspiring dance class in Ventura last night and am so blown away by my students! I love that they love to dance with me – and to the incredible live drumming! They come from different backgrounds and circumstances – all different shapes, sizes, ages and abilities – yet they are all flushed […]

Halloween Pick-Me-Up!

This morning I felt very blah…you know that blah feeling where you desperately need something to help get you started on a better note…something to help turn you around so that the rest of your day is uplifting – instead of depressing! Yesterday I was on cloud nine and feeling so blessed and grateful, and […]

Water – Part II

In my Yogalates class today I had visions. It was at the end when I was laying in savasana (after an incredible workout). First I had sensations of warmth and tingling all around my heart center and head. I felt so vibrant and happy all of a sudden. I had a vision (one I have […]

Grateful for Teachers

Yesterday we took back to back djembe drumming workshops with Dibo Camara and our friend Dramane Kone. The workshops were full of challenging rhythms and solo parts. They were both advanced classes and pushed everyone beyond their comfort zone. I had an interesting time participating in and simultaneously observing myself and others – specifically our […]

Water is LIFE!

Living in Southern California has so many amazing benefits – ocean, mountains, warm weather, healthy lifestyle, great food, art, culture…I could go on and on. But we are also prone to floods, earthquakes, and FIRE. The Zaca fire this summer, and now the fires in San Diego and surrounding areas have really put things into […]

Ventura Dance Class

Last night was my first Tuesday dance class at Pulse Drumming. It was so fun! We started out with the very aerobic and lively “Soli” and everyone was hot and sweaty after about 10 minutes of dance. We ended with “Djole” and the drummers were on fire! Everyone clapped and cheered at the end and […]
