I believe that aside from the amazing workout benefits of belly dance, women revive their feminine spirit and empower themselves and others through celebration of our gifts and talents.  I teach The Goddess Workout bellydance classes at a  Women Center owned by one of the princesses here and love it. This is my only chance to get in touch with Saudi women. So, it's nice to get Saudi perspective because in compounds there are no Saudis allowed. I will be here for a total of 4 years, then return to Portland. That's where I will open the Goddess Center in the Northwest.  The goal of this center will be to bring women together in a non-competitive environment that celebrates community and sisterhood. Licensed 04/09 onabrtr@yahoo.com

I personally started bellydancing 10 years ago therapeutically, as a way of getting in touch with my feminine side, which I had shut down following childhood sexual abuse. It was a point of no return for me, as I completely embraced the Goddess Att-itt-ude with a Capital A!! One of the companies I currently manage is focused on supporting women through pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond through various empowering activities. Bellydancing is one of the favourites because it helps the pregnant and new mums feel GREAT about their changing body, celebrate their life-giving Goddess force, and get back into shape at their own rhythm... and their babies are welcome in our classes! Licensed 04/09 www.mamaknows.eu

I have a vision of helping women to reconnect with their inner beauty, sexiness and strength. I am particularly interested helping others to reconnect with their feminine energies because a lot women these days have been out of balance, relying too heavily on my masculine energies. So this has meant pushing, doing, striving, strategically thinking, more and more whilst getting out of touch with their Goddess within. So many women these days are doing more and more yet feeling empty, like something is missing. And on top of this, experiencing adrenal fatigue, stress and depression. I would like to combine dance with my knowledge of the conscious and subconscious minds, intuitive eating, beliefs and manifesting to ultimately create more balance in myself and other women. johleen37@gmail.com Licensed 04/13

I have had a highly successful business in dance, however I missed the magic of it due to the size of my business. This time it will be a very different creation, more holistic and a true reflection/expression of myself and my dreams. I retired two years ago or so I thought, but it would seem after time for myself and away from the lime light at 43 I am really only just getting started - it feels as though my previous business although full time and successful was the dress rehearsal for what I am about to launch. Although I have to admit due to the competitiveness and other less than positive elements found within the bellydance community I am in no way looking to step back in to that world. For me it is about each woman moving and just being our beautiful selves - So that is why I am drawn to this particular training as it uses a dance style I adore and that allows us to melt in to our femininity yet it is clearly a workout for all Goddess and not advertised as a bellydance class of any particular style or era etc. It's more about using the moves to get in touch with our bodies and staying fit, healthy and beautiful.

 About 6 years ago, I decided that if I were to ever win my battle with weight, I'd need to find something that was exercise and fun.  My search ultimately lead me to Dolphina and I love how she explains Belly Dance as a dance for women by women, as a celebration of the Goddess.  It's also about enjoying your body right now, as it is.  I decided if I was going to defeat the loathing I held for my own body, I had to do two things.  I needed to learn to love it right now, regardless of it's shape and size-and I had to find things that I enjoyed that got it moving. So, I changed my perspective and decided to simply learn how to Belly Dance.  I wasn't exercising anymore, I was learning, and it has made all the difference in the world.

I'm proud of my age (62) and current healthMy second stage of life started at the age of 41after a 20 year marriage had ended - I took my first class of bellydancing and loved it! I later discovered that while I was exploring the new movements physically, I was also exploring myself emotionally. After taking classes , I was given an opportunity to teach with our local continuing education in Stamford, CT 2 times per year in the fall and spring. I taught just the basics of bellydance, but over time became what I believed was movement for body and soul...empowering from within. Fast forward to present, I began taking better care of myself and remembering the love I had for the dance. I recently came across a plaque I bought a few years ago "make your own kind of beautiful" and has inspired me once again.

I have long been a devotee of the Goddess in all of her forms, but I am especially drawn to her lunar manifestation. When I discovered Dolphina and her GoddessLife website, it was like coming home, as Bellydance, celebrating the phases of the moon, and empowering women to be more confident and in tune with the Earth and the natural energies of the Universe are all matters of deep spiritual importance to me as well. Respect for animals and compassion for their lives, and also the VITAL importance of preserving this Earth are also subjects near and dear to my heart.

I started belly dancing several years ago as an effective cardiovascular exercise and for its superior abdominal toning benefits.  When I found Dolphina, she brought belly dancing to a new “spiritual” level for me and helped me to discover and embrace my inner goddess.  Belly dancing helps me to leave my stressful world of routine, expectations and schedules behind and sets me free to feel beautiful, sexy and confident.  There is an indescribable release and self-assurance that happens when I dance; the chakras are open and the inner goddess takes flight; inhibition is thrown to the wind and I feel renewed.  It is an extremely empowering transformation, and it has become my life’s passion to bring the gift of belly dance to other women!  I want all women to experience the power of belly dancing so they can celebrate their inner goddess, their bodies, and a long and happy life!

I was first runner up in a belly dance competition a few years ago! I also belong to 2 dance troups. A few years ago I danced Burlesque. I am also trained in Hawaiian Hula. I have found dance to be Very Empowering for me! I would like to share this empowerment with other women, and bring out the Goddess hidden inside them! I would like to teach at the Yoga Studio or here in my Home Studio. I feel it is very important to be certified/licensed to teach to be credible to the community.

Dancing is so freeing, so exciting, so sensual. I think it expresses what I often hide. That free, sensual, divine feminine self just leaping through the moves. Also, probably why I tend to only dance behind my closed door. I have goals of losing weight, getting in shape, gaining strength and flexibility.  I have a secret goal of performing solo at Rakassah. I told Dolphina I've imagined myself in a red outfit...yes baring my belly. My weight accumulates there but it's perfect for bellydance. I I also want to learn how to fully love and accept myself more. I definitely do, but I know nurturing the inner goddess/divine feminine is important.  Every woman deserves to know she is beautiful and divinely loved, cherished and held forever and ever.

I belly dance to share, encourage, express and EMPOWER. I am inspired and I inspire. My strength encourages other women to recognize their own strength and I am made more beautiful by being surrounded by others beauty. I dance to feel and I feel by dance. It is my pleasure to serve the being that is innate self esteem. I am also a Naturopath, Massage Therapist and Therapeutic Massage Therapy Instructor. I have been a practicing massage therapist for 9 years, an instructor for 4 years, and owned my own practice for 7 years. This year celebrates 25 years of me in dance (started when I was 3... you can do the math! hehehe). I really got into bellydancing 5 years ago when 4 months after my parents divorce, my boyfriend of 2 years wanted to get me a ring and instead... broke up with me. I decided that I had a choice, i could grieve in a detrimental fashion... or do EVERYTHING positive for myself. I enrolled immediately in a bellydance class at my local college.. and WOW! I had no IDEA that my body could do THAT!!! I was totally unleashed and expressive AND I got to dance without needing a partner! Licensed 2/12  christinatillia@ymail.com

The Goddess Life DVD's have been so inspiring to me! I love the movement and I feel it really brings out the best in me. I really want to share it with other people. I have been a dancer all my life. I finally started to bellydance after my son was born when I was 31. I've been a practitioner of yoga and Pilates for years and have made a living teaching both of those disciplines. I want to light my fire and get through my rut. I've been feeling really bored with bellydance! This makes me sad, because bellydance was always super exciting to me. I love burlesque, but it's hard to find burlesque workshops that aren't super basic dance. I'm sick of all the don'ts of bellydance. I am also done with caring about what anyone else thinks! At 44, I'm way too old for that! I"m so excited to share it with other people. Licensed 06/14 tapestrykinetics@gmail.com

I have been practicing the "3 T's" all along and I must say that my spirits have been lifted and others have noticed this also. The "3 T's" have helped me whenever my spirits are down, and just conquering some of life's obstacles that I have dealt with.  Becoming a part of the Goddess Life Community has renewed my commitment to honor women and help them feel absolutely wonderful about themselves not just in dance but in real life.

In 2004 I found Dolphina's Goddess Life DVD's and purchased all of them. One day while trying to learn the moves my husband came home looked at me with a puzzled look on his face, looked at Dolphina on the TV, and said " Yea right, like you will be able to dance like that". A few months later he suffered a tragic motorcycle accident that left him in a coma for over a year.He is currently still in a nursing home and has been for eight years. Trying to care for my husband while raising and supporting my three young sons was very stressful. A friend had said to me "Michelle you need to find something you love and do it for yourself". I turned to Dolphina and I came back to life. I felt like a woman and I started to feel like a Goddess. In the following years I turned to Dolphina's DVD's to take me away to her peaceful and sensual world of Belly Dance. In 2010, I found a gym that offered a Belly Dance Class and within a few months of taking the class, the owner asked me if I would be interested in teaching it. I turned to Dolphina and signed up to be a Goddess Life Belly Dance and Burlesque Instructor and I have been teaching women how to be a Goddess through Belly Dance and Burlesque Dance ever since. So yeah, I can dance like that. Licensed 03/10 bneemagic@aol.com

About 5 years ago, I had a moment of clarity and decided that I needed to do something for myself. I needed to do something that makes me happy. I ended up finding my way into the belly dance community and learning the art of Egyptian Belly Dance.  Over the years, I've fallen in love with Burlesque and alternative dance forms. I found that a number of women find the same joy in dance that I do, but there are a lack of well educated teachers available. Some people love to perform and some prefer to teach. I found my skill tends to be in the learning, application and teaching of art. Although the stage calls, I love seeing other women embrace their bodies. I want to be able to teach other women fun, alternative ways to find themselves and relieve stress. Workouts are often boring or put so much pressure on women to achieve a body that may not necessarily be their natural state. A goddess workout brings out the unique positive light in each woman and I want to be able to share that.

I hope to share Dolphina's Goddess Workout, the GoddessLifestyle and Philosophy to inspire women to find their inner Goddess, find the joy of self expression and a healthy way to lose weight. It is a way for me to help others transform themselves by learning another way to dance, relieve stress, workout and to feel the music for accomplishment of self creativity, interpretation, confidence in the many ways this adventure has to offer. My goal is to teach Goddess Belly Dance and Burlesque classes! I live in a conservative area and would like to promote awareness to other women to step into their Goddess power.

Unfortunately there is a lot of domestic abuse in this town and I feel that a large part of it comes from the young women not really having any self esteem or place to go or someone to turn to. There aren't really any open programs for women to go to and it would give them something to do as well.  I really hope i can make a difference in even one persons life :My goal is to provide an environment where a woman can come and be a woman, be with other women, and feel safe, sexy, strong, and empowered. I want to help teach what Dolphina has taught me: EVERY woman is a goddess!!! Jasmine is excited for this opportunity to work with Dolphina and GoddessLife.

Over the years, I've fallen in love with Burlesque. I found that a number of women find the same joy in dance that I do, but there are a lack of well educated teachers available. Some people love to perform and some prefer to teach. I found my skill tends to be in the learning, application and teaching of art. Although the stage calls, I love seeing other women embrace their bodies. I want to be able to teach other women fun, alternative ways to find themselves and relieve stress. Workouts are often boring or put so much pressure on women to achieve a body that may not necessarily be their natural state. The Goddess Workout brings out the unique positive light in each woman and I want to be able to share that. Professionally, I'd love to be an instructor at my own studio, but I know that takes time to build. Licensed 02/10 miragebellydance@yahoo.com

As an Art Teacher, to me, Belly Dancing is another form of visual art and it is a dream to one day be able to open a dance studio to enable women of all ages to do self expression through this medium. I began my interest years ago when I believed I needed to explore my inner muse, lose weight and feel beautiful when I discovered Dolphina and the exercise videos on television. Immediately I was enthralled and it seemed my body began to move on its own and express my joy of following along with her instruction! I admire the GoddessLife Philosophy of empowering women in discovery of self and Dolphina's courage and stamina. Her expressive moves and pearls of wisdom of her words inspire many and I would like to be like her and share the confidence I have gained through her work. I feel beautiful, sensual and grateful for an exciting and different way to work out and be healthy. I hope to share Dolphina's Goddess Workout, the GoddessLifestyle and Philosophy to inspire women.

I've been following your classes and website for years...finally NOW is the time...my time to explore this sacred femininity with your help. I have been dancing since the age 3 right next to Michael Jackson on my tv screen. He inspired me to want to dance. Now at age 31, I inspire myself, my kids inspire me and my life has inspired me to dance and I've come to the realization I'm done taking it all "sooo" serious and want to play more. I'm enjoying embracing and unveiling my Shakti 'feminine' its been a wonderful practice in many aspects of my life. There are so many woman taking themselves so seriously and hence tense and insecure. I'd like to create a platform that is safe, intimate, playful, flirty and fun!

 My goal is to ultimately open my own studio and teach Goddess Life in the Greater Houston area. I love dancing! My love for dancing started when I took my first belly dancing class. I was hooked immediately. My body never felt more alive - improving my posture, toned my muscles and filled me with confidence. Soon I started social dancing: Country dancing, Salsa, Swing and even Jitterbug with acrobatics! My favorite was always Freestyle so that I could show off my shimmies, hips and pops! I started integrating my belly dancing moves anywhere I could. A decade or more later, here I am... I have recently added Zumba Instruction and looking forward to offering Goddess Life too! Excited about Burlesque as well... Licensed 02/12  zenevieva@live.com

Respect for animals and compassion for their lives, and also the VITAL importance of preserving this Earth are also subjects near and dear to my heart.

I created my own freestyle ecstatic dance class for women, called Danceroots.  I want to teach a more accessible class that empowers women, but allows those who are not comfortable with freestyle dance to learn to free their bodies. I think the Goddess Workout is perfect for this.  I have seen from dancing with women in my Danceroots class, what a transformation occurred for them while moving to world music in a non-judgemental space. Although my class was freestyle movement, it had a Goddess theme. We used scarves, danced to Goddess songs, honored each others' dance in the center of the circle, etc. The Goddess Workout is a way to reach more women who are used to learning moves, as in an exercise class, rather than creating all their own.  I look forward to facilitating a safe and joyful space with great music, where the women of my community can find their groove, and feel confident in their curvaceous beauty. I love Middle Eastern music and my mother was a belly dancer when I was growing up. I am so excited to begin! Licensed 10/14 maevelj@gmail.com

I began bellydancing as part of a major shift in my own life. My husband of less than 2 years had died of leukemia and I came to the realization that I had to really embrace every moment of my life as a precious gift. I decided to do many things that first year after his death and the most important: i discovered the Goddess path and spiritual practice of belly dance. I cannot possibly describe in this brief statement just what all this dance form has meant for me, but briefly, it is my way of celebrating, often of worshipping, and certainly of expressing gratitude for my life. My most important goal in teaching belly dance to other women is to help share this art form specifically as a spiritual practice. I currently teach at a health club, so much of this is in the form of undercurrents, but one of the aspects of Dolphina's format that literally gives me chills is the sense of personal empowerment that she instills in the exercises. I want to bring this to my own classes. I love teaching at the gym and in many cases being the first belly dance instructor many of these women have had. I love to see the giddiness and sometimes slightly embarrassed joy of these women as they learn to free their bodies to do these powerful, natural movements that have been restricted for too long.  I truly embrace Dolphina's goal of awakening every woman's inner Goddess!
