Hip Hop Yoga (YogiDance with Char)

Ever found yourself getting deep into your yoga practice... flowing through the poses, connecting movement with breath, losing yourself in your rhythm and heard a song that made you want to get up and start grooving?

That is YogiDance

Dance is a universal expression of human experience, and Yoga, an ancient rooted path of spiritual enlightenment. Dreamt up by local Yoga teacher and Performer, Charlene Smith (a.k.a. Queen C), YogiDance is an experience that pulls you out of your head and into your heart where your body is free to let go of negative patterns and embody self-love.

YogiDance with Char uses the power of your healing yoga practice with guidance for expressive dance to hip hop/ R&B/ soulful contemporary and dance music!

This class is for you if...

* You desire to create balance in your nervous system (relieve depression and/or anxiety

* Are ready to open up the deepest tissue of your body for enhanced mobility

*You desire to create a level of self awareness (Mind/body/soul) that makes things like learning choreography a breeze!

Focused on activating your creative kundalini energy and tapping into your divine nature, you leave feeling energized and lifted... It's like a party on your mat (No alcohol required)!
Prerequisites: Have a body and a desire to love it

No dance or yoga experience necessary. Open to all levels

Twerkshop Ceremony

Experience liberation through the magically mesmerizing African rooted dance style known as Twerking! In this tribal based dance workshop, Queen C (Char) from InnerVerse Connect warms you up with body awareness exercises and sensual movement to experience twerking as a celebration of your body and soul!

You learn the basics of booty work to liven up your Kundalini energy while utilizing tribal dance moves in a purposeful, non-appropriative setting. We return to the true nature of the dance in a ceremonial celebration of our bodies!

This class is for you if...

*You want to feel FREE in your body

*You desire to tune into your body's messages and sensations

*You have always wanted to learn how to move your booty in a way that is sexy and with confidence!

*Feeling sexy and creating the body of your dreams effortlessly is your kind of thing ;)

*Being supported by sisters on the journey to self love and acceptance is what you crave

You will learn to question, with your mind and body, how you can navigate this Africanist movement in body-affirming ways outside of the standard Euro-centric dance studio choreography context. Queen C invites you to build your pelvic strength while exploring the capacity of your anatomy and celebrating your booty!

High Vibe Goddess Diet Method 

Being a Goddess is a journey that starts from the inside. As a woman, there is so much more to losing weight than calories in vs. calories out. It's about the cycles we go through both mentally and physically and the wisdom we hold true to our hearts. The hormonal changes and life shifts that challenge you and leave you feeling victim to your own life are not just your own struggles... we all go through it! As a High Vibe Goddess, we take back the power not by force, but through support, mindfulness and awareness. 

The High Vibe Goddess Sisterhood is a community that supports you in the High Fat Low Carb lifestyle. The journey begins with a 12 week online eating education and integration program led by creator and head Goddess, Charlene Smith. You are supported not only by weekly coaching videos, meal plans and lesson guides, but through the Facebook community and weekly Facebook live events. 

What happens when you sign up?

First you'll receive your welcome email! You’ll download your guidebook and start with my program that sets that stage for a smooth transition into fat burning heaven.

Stage 2 is all about flipping that metabolic switch from using sugar  to using fat as a steady source of fuel.  You'll receive everything you need to do so you literally cannot fail.  I'll give you meal plans, foods lists, snack ideas, supplement guides and more so everything is a no brainer and all you have to do is follow the plug and play instructions.

You’ll get all of the tools so you know how to eat in any situation. I’ll teach you how to eat out, what to order at your favourite restaurants (yes-even fast food). I'll also give you my top strategies to blast through fat loss plateaus so you can keep going long after these 12 weeks are over.

Testimonials 

Charlene Smith's client Chris had just completed one of her breathwork and yoga classes. She speaks about her experience and has since worked with Charlene one on one to learn more.

I've had the pleasure of joining Charlene Smith at the gym for some intense work outs paired with intense laughter, fun, and endless encouragement ! I've also spent mornings in yoga classes with her sharing energy, essential oil aromas, and the polite wink when we have hit a new goal. Her energy and positive outlook radiates from her inner self right to her joyous smile. It's easy to pause my daily routine and take a " me break " when this girls involved. Cheers to many more adventures and accomplishments ahead !

~ Chelsea Brown, July 14, 2016

Your class has done so much for me, and I don't quite know how to thank you appropriately. Your warm, welcoming, and accepting personality instantly put me at ease. I have very little support in my daily life and when I was in your class, I felt like I was a part of something bigger...something beautiful. I have gone through hell over the past few years and have finally decided that it is time to put myself first. You broke everything down into manageable pieces that challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and tackle some of the issues that have been holding me back from finding my true happiness. Most of the time I walk around and go about my day feeling lost, but after spending even this short amount of time with you, I feel like there is hope. And hope is a beautiful thing.

 

I do not want this series to be over; I feel like we have only just begun. Please, if you have intentions of carrying forward with a phase two, let me know. As I mentioned before, my circle is very small and this class made me feel like part of a community. I now carry a lot of new knowledge and appreciation ...I am so incredibly grateful for all that you have given me.
