My Skills

Weight Loss for Women

Category: Motivation / Inspiration
Description
Just $25 per session!

My main goal is to empower people to take health into their own hands and start fully living their lives. The healthier we are, the more we can do in this world. Weight loss, in a sense, brings about a sense of freedom, and a sense of 'I can' to the person undergoing the transformation.

I am a personal trainer and a nutrition and wellness consultant, as well as a raw vegan chef and reiki master. Whatever it is that will help you get there, I probably have something in my versatile background that can be on your side.

I've seen people do amazing things, and I believe you can, too.

Belly Dance

Category: Dance
Description
www.shaktidance.bravehost.com
Bellydance is a word I use to encompass all forms of dance designed specifically for the feminine form, stylistically generally having as a key component the isolation of certain body parts from other body parts. One could say bellydance relies on optical illusion as well as muscle control, creating shapes and forms that mimic snakes, water, fire and other things.
Bellydancing is basically a collection of the forementioned moves that create a sort of physical vocabulary; this vocabulary is of the same language as that of drums, making the dancer's body become the visual voice of the drum. Certainly, not all dancing is percussive, as not all music is percussive, and there are a whole slew of 'words' in this 'vocabulary' that speak the language of string instruments and melodies.

Relevant Education / Credentials
I started studying bellydance a little more deeply; among others, I've studied with Amaya, Isis, Roxanne, Chellcy, and all of Women of the Well. I've performed at the College of Dupage's International Festival, the Fox Valley Mall, the Woodridge Cultural Festival, various Kimari events, coffeeshoppes, and high schools, just to name a few. I danced with a gypsies in Italy, and got to spend the evening with some expert gypsy flamenco dancers in Andalucia, Spain. Most recently, I danced at Pazzo's in the NBC Tower in Downtown Chicago. Of all my pursuits, bellydance has been with me the longest and is the one I consider to be a part of the base of who I am.

I currently work as a chef and waitress at Borrowed Earth Cafe, a raw vegan Cafe in Downers Grove.
I specialize in pastries and desserts, and I have been able to translate my dessert chef experience to raw vegan food, creating desserts that are healthy, naturally sugar free and great for those who are sensitive to sweets!
I can teach you how to incorporate this wonderfully healthy way of eating into your life. Visit my website for more information:

Henna is crushed plant leaves that, when mixed with liquids containing tannins, creates a paste that is hypo-allergenic and can be applied to the skin to create beautiful designs that fade in 30 days. Beautiful, temporary tattoos. Great tradition for weddings and other life milestones.
A great addition or even center attraction for your event or party.
