You will have the opportunity to enjoy a power point presentation and discussion that honors individual values and spiritual beliefs.

What people globally are saying about
Nia Workshops with Susan
The workshop affected my mind, body and spirit in a truly positive way. I am now more conscious about my internal 'flame' and will use it in a harmonious way to protect others and myself . . . Thank you, Susan, for reminding us in a peaceful way who we are!
~Josiane, Brussels, Belgium
Susan's unique approach topleasure and nurturance is exactly what I needed since I do have ongoing issues with "nurturing" my body, soul, and heart.
~S.R., Seattle, WA
The igniting workshop was powerful for me on multiple levels. I enjoyed the dancing so much--it has been a long, long time since I felt so free. Honoring the seat of my power, the ember that gives rise to the flame. I know that something has shifted, and that I am standing on earth with both feet on the ground and more me than I was before.
~Ellyce, New York City, NY
The workshop was amazing and incredibly powerful for me personally. I am so grateful for the experience, the community of women brought together . . . and the dancing with them after the "talk" was incredible.
~Nancy, Rockville, MD
This workshop works and keeps on working! Igniting the Power of Pelvis helped me to settle more deeply into my personal power and strength through increased body awareness and body appreciation. I have not been the same. This is one workshop I highly recommend!
~Sandra, Tacoma, WA
If you are searching for deeper meaning in your mind body spirit workout, I would highly recommend Susan 's Igniting The Power of the Pelvis.
~Gail, Niagara-On-The Lake, Ontario, Canada
I can't yet even articulate what has been happening for me since the Igniting workshop, but here are some pearls:
- release of fear and stress
- renewed gratitude and wonder
- more awareness of connection and love
~Katrina, Seattle, WA
In just a few hours, Susan taught us to open up an area of our body, which can be a bit scary to many. With a combination of reflection and dance, she guided us to experience a new freedom in movement and thinking when we allowed our pelvis to be---to let it free.
~Marianne, Antwerp, Belgium
The combination of angelic Susan Tate and this pelvis power workshop is an experience I had three years ago. It fired and re-centered my inner power as I blissfully moved and danced with the intention of Love!
~Sommer Joy, Whidbey Island, WA
I forced myself to come to this workshop with the belief that it might nourish my soul. I'm not really sure what it is that I experienced, except to know that I want more of it :)
~Stephanie, Charlottesville, VA
With great skill and sensitivity, Susan guided us on a magical journey into our bodies and beyond. Enlightening, profound, and fun!
~Barbara, Washington, DC
