Silk veils changed my life!!
Marta's bellydance classes are absolutely the highlights of my week! Her teaching inspires us all to be the strong, sensual, sassy, and fabulous ladies who we have the potential to be. Belly dancing creates an amazing new mindset, where every single woman is beautiful - whether she is large, petite, tall, short, etc. and it is finally OK to love your body just the way it is!
Belly dancing gives me a renewed sense of self after each class. It is invigorating, fun, expressive, and athletic. And, for the first time in my life, I have an appreciation for my body -- how it looks, what it can do, and how feminine it makes me feel.
I never knew that belly dancing would have such a positive impact on my neck and back muscles. I used to have chronic pain from all the driving and computer work that I do but since I began learning to belly dance I have had no pain! And, my posture has improved!
At age 54 I never knew it would be so much fun learning a new dance form. Marta makes everyone feel welcome, despite their abilities or experience, and helps each student advance at their own speed.
Marta, your welcoming manner and teaching style make belly dance accessible to everyone. You make room for each student's individual expression. You are an artist and an inspiration with your elegance, poise and skill. When I surrender to the movement and music, I feel my heart energy move through my hips, arms and fingers. You are a fabulous instructor!
I have been taking Marta's classes for over a year now. She is such a beautiful woman, amazing dancer, gentle teacher... I have been more than inspired by her....I always leave the classes excited and challenged to experience my own feminine mysteries deeper and deeper...
