#Affirmovements Workshop Debuts In NYC!
oh what a feeling,
I'M FEELING LIFE
After over a year of conversation, visualization, and lessons on befriending fear, #Affirmovements was officially birthed on Sunday, November 5th 2017, by two proud mamas -- myself and my bestest, Guerdley Cajus.
Our goal was to remix self-care with an immersive experience crafted for everybody and every body of team estrogen craving to take affirmations a bit deeper. And with zero hyperbole, I can also with my full heart that the mission was felt.
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE WARM AND WELCOMING, CURIOUS AND COURAGEOUS WOMEN WHO JOINED US!
For those who couldn't make it for this 1st installment: in essence Affirmovements is all about turning self-talk into body language. Because think of it this way -- our bodies have the power to determine our thoughts, feelings and actions, so why not invite them to unite with our words?
Beneath Beyonce lights and candlelight over at the gorgeous Athleta Studio in Flatiron, NYC we practiced movement + writing exercises based on the audio vision board Bloomsville: for when we're fed up with the journey.
Peep the playlist we danced to:
1. "Weary" - Solange
2. "Confidently Lost" - Sabrina Claudio
3. "Broken Clocks" - SZA
4. "Lost In The World" - Kanye West
5. "Grown Woman" - Beyonce
6. "God's Whisper" - Raury
7. "Bloomsville" - Tracy G.
And aaaaaaaah!! Here's an especially beautiful email I received from one of our guests:
Thank you so much, Michelle. *hand on heart*
Guerdley and I are hella excited to grow Affirmovements and take it beyond NYC, so please stay tuned!
