Hi there! I'm Samantha!
I get it.
Sometimes you struggle to move your body.
Rolling out of bed. Getting out of the car. Sitting at work all day…
The tightness in your hips and stiff body are a reminder that you should stretch and move more but still don’t have the time to do it.
And of course, thinking how you need to do more only adds more stress to your day…and that sucks.
I know how it feels to have body goals and to have a hard time going after them because of being busy, having obligations, and not knowing exactly where to start.
I’m a 40-year old business owner and the primary caregiver of my children.
I had to accommodate my changing body during and after both pregnancies.
I gained waaaay more weight during pregnancy than planned, which meant a lot more weight for me to lose after giving birth…I didn’t feel pretty at all.
I didn’t feel like I had the time to figure out how to fix my body and feel better about myself without adding more to my plate.
I know you know what it means to be super busy. You’re busy literally every minute of the day.
You know you gotta do something about your body and the stress but how are you going to find the time to do anything?
You look at your belly and think…ugh.
Eventually, the impact of how you feel in and about your body and weighs on you.
Sluggish, sloth-like movement that makes you feel older than you are.
Increased stress, burn out.
No way to move your body that fits your schedule, is fun and actually works.
Sometimes, you don’t even want to look in the mirror.
I struggled for years with those things too.
And when you’re used to not moving or feeling stiff, moving your body feels awkward.
Like when your leg falls asleep and you try to walk afterwards. 🤣
How can it not affect you mentally?
You tell yourself you’re lazy.
That you’ll never be pretty or graceful like ‘her’.
You think you’ll have a big belly forever.
Your stress level is making you nuts.
Damn, that is mentally exhausting to carry around all. damn. day. ❤️
All that struggling can change.
I want to show you how.
You can learn how to shift your daily struggle with stress, tight hips, your belly...
to a place where you can say nice things to and about your body no matter what it looks like,
belly dance for fun or exercise 4-5 times a week,
and feel absolutely beautiful, graceful, and confident in your skin EVERY DAY.
Alongside the belly dancing lessons, you’ll also learn how to talk to yourself more kindly…like a friend,
so when you’re feeling down about yourself and your life, it won’t stop you from continuing your day.
No one has taught you how to do this before.
It’s a skill you can learn.
I make it simple.
Learning these skills will change your life.
You start moving again and strengthen your body without it feeling like doom and gloom all the time.
If you’ve got pain or body concerns, no problem. I teach you to move your body by working with your concerns.
Just a few minutes a day of belly dancing will change the way you feel in your body in just 1 week.
In a month, you’ll look in the mirror and say less mean shit to yourself.
Your pants will fit differently.
When someone says you look pretty or nice, you will start believing it.
Dancing through your day and having fun is something you do and have time for.
Stress will keep happening, but now you have a way to deal with it.
5 minutes of belly dancing can equal hours of relief…and a lot of fun.
Belly Dancing while you brush your teeth.
While you walk down the hallway.
While you cook dinner.
All these 5 -minute moments add up! Yes, it all counts!
You keep moving like this.
Your body loosens up, you have more flexibility, and you tone your belly more quickly.
You’re also less awkward because you’re more comfortable with the way your body moves.
After all, you’ve been moving way more and have more practice now.
You meet yourself where you are and appreciate who you are, immediately showing yourself love.
Because you’re so proud of yourself and your progress.
You feel more confident when you get dressed, less stressed, and you embrace your femininity.
Before you know it, a habit is built around you moving your body and feeling amazing in it.
You can have all of this.
Here’s how I’m going to help you get there…
