Always Be Dancing: Move With Eve: I bring accessible yoga, dance and mindfulness programs to school communities, fitness professionals, Pt's/OT's, yoga studios and every(body) in between through classes, workshops, professional development seminars, public speaking, and guest blogging. I can create a program specific to your needs. My self designed ¡Ole Namaste! infuses the movements, breathwork and meditation of yoga with the music and dance of flamenco. Come have a body stretching, breath enhancing, mind relaxing, hand clapping good time! In this fun, upbeat mindful movement class, that is infused with the music and dance of flamenco, students will absorb the dramatic postures and colorful flavor of flamenco while exploring yoga poses, flamenco technique, breathwork and meditation. Each class will include a demonstration of flamenco by the instructor.

  1. Thanks for entering the giveaway on my blog, which led me to yours. What a beautiful blog you have! This is a great list of resources as well. So happy to find another dancer who loves books!!


  2. Thank you so much Kerry! I adore the Lola book and am so inspired by it. I have been writing a Children's Guide to Flamenco for the past few years and hope one day to actually get it into print. Have a wonderful day!


  3. HI Kerry, I just thought you might find it fun to know that I will be working with Barefoot Books in Concord MA for their release of Lola's fandango. The illustrator will be there and she will read the book to the children (yeah I can get a signed copy!) and then do a craft with them. I will be leading them in a flamenco class! So much fun!
