“I loved the Awakened Body weekend! It was cozy, heartfelt, glorious and gracefully led by Lalita (and Melissa) – a weekend of exploring the feminine creative capacity. All with mindful presence to relax into what is our natural state of being… being love and a movement of love. I ended the weekend feeling love and loved, more whole and more freedom to just be Me.”Sat Nam Khalsa

Meet Your Facilitators
Lalita Shree Dasi
Melissa’s story is simple – she has always loved to dance. After some very uninteresting college years, she surrendered to the inevitable and moved to New York City to dance professionally. In those years she met, studied and performed with one Postmodern legend after another – her relationship to theater, dance and creativity were blown wide open.
Alexander technique, somatic therapy, meditation and dance are the 4 pillars of her work – whether she is teaching in universities, at international dance festivals or in her home studio in Evanston, IL.
