I not only learned the skills and gained the confidence to teach this powerful method, but I also went on a journey of personal transformation. The course is dynamic and packed full of theoretical knowledge and practical exercises. It teaches you how to create a safe and encouraging space for others to take a journey of self-exploration and self-expression through the power of movement, breath and meditation. There is so much that can be said about the benefits of the method, but what touched me most was its invitation to me to be free to dance my own dance, to feel liberated from the constraints of rules and to instead embrace the possibility of moving freely and boldly. Rebecca is a brilliant teacher. She is honest, passionate and deeply committed to the growth of her students. I felt very supported by her and by her amazing assistant, Zoë, throughout the whole training. It was wonderful to connect with other brilliant women on the course and to form loving and nurturing relationships with them. I returned home feeling more grounded, empowered, and sensually awakened. I can’t recommend the Ecstatic Awakening Dance teacher training enough. Thank you so much!” Graces Dares 2015
