It was amazing to witness the beauty and power of using my body as a tool to heal itself through movement. Initially reluctant to make myself vulnerable, I truly feel grateful for the release and the shift I am experiencing in my body and spirit after opening up to the support and healing process of Tatiana's healing space.

Tatiana created a wonderful, OPEN space in her healing through movement workshop.
It was an environment that was easy to trust in. I felt uplifted and joyous! Being bathed in the positive vibration and mirthful energy had me feeling even more open to a creative flow. We all need sustainable sustenance to keep ourselves alive, like the air we breathe. Tatiana's workshop provided nourishment of spirit.

I had heard of healing through dance, healing through movement—but could never wrap my head around what that meant until I experienced it in Tatiana’s workshop. I remember being paralyzed with fear at the thought of “dancing” in a room full of strangers—but I trusted Tatiana and trusted the process. As we moved to the prompt, “tell your story”, I immediately realized how much pain was trapped in my body. I cried as I moved, with my eyes closed, and felt “my story” unfolding in ways I had never understood it. To physically move through pain, to reenact my heartache through movements—I realized how deep my wounds really were, and how much of them were trapped in my body. I had done a lot of other healing work, but I was blown away by the level of release and unique type of healing that took place in that short workshop. As Tatiana came around and put her hand on me, and whispered in my ear, I felt a huge wave of emotion—she felt like The Spirit comforting me—holding my hand while I finally let go of the pain. There is something magical about her—her words, her touch, her movements—and while I had no clue what I had signed up for when I walked in to that workshop that evening, I left a lot of pain on that dance floor and walked out a different person.
