What Women Are Saying

 

“The first thing I noticed was as I was heading home on Monday; the conversation in my head was that I don’t belong. I’m not a mom, I don’t even work full time, I have tons of time to do what I want. And what has shown up is that even with all the time and freedom, I still don’t take time to do things for me! This morning I decided to make myself a cup of good coffee and noticed that I wanted to skimp and not use too many beans (I like my coffee really strong). I stopped and told myself I deserve another scoop of beans and added it. 
I’m so glad I gave myself the gift of your course. This week I’ve had more energy, and in a week that typically I would hibernate, I found myself wanting to go out every day and had to force myself to stay home on the super crazy cold days! That’s never happened before!”

“(I) just wanted to share with you a woman empowerment course that has help me reconnect with my inner self through movement. I think it’s amazing. It’s changed me. Sophie is a pleasure and a source of light and inspiration to work with. She creates such a safe space to explore desires and pleasures. I haven’t felt this connected to myself in a few years. I haven’t felt like myself in a while and it feels SO good. Something inside is awake again. That ferocious, go get ‘em, sassy tiger. I Love it. I feel so blessed to have experienced the light and inspiration Sophie has brought into my life. Here’s to the Juicy Woman Revolution!”

“I’m having too much fun. I don’t want to stop! It feels amazing to move my body in your classes… I feel deeply relaxed and recharged afterwards. It’s delightful to spend a couple of hours on “receive” (versus the need to give/do things for others). I’m aware that I’m investing in myself and oh-so grateful for the opportunity. Thank you, Sophie!”

“It’s been such an exciting and stimulating experience taking classes with Sophie! She brings nothing but passion and a zest for self-expression to everything she offers her students – it becomes contagious. There is no expectation or destination, just a journey of creative exploration in the sacred space she creates calling to the deepest parts of our feminine. She is nothing but authentic in wanting to help more women feel empowered in their own sensual essence by creating a safe container to explore a more meaningful relationship with our bodies and celebrating it’s unique radiance.”

“After a debilitating injury which prevented me from walking for several months, it took a very long time to get back on track with my life, my body and myself.  I am strong now and have the ability to move but my confidence was shaken as I am still working through the after-effects of the injury. 

I started to follow Sophie’s posts about the Juicy Woman Revolution and immediately thought to myself that I wanted to feel that way again.  Sophie’s posts had helped me significantly and made me feel uplifted and positive.  When I learned that Sophie was going to be teaching an eight week course which incorporated both seminar and dance, I was ecstatic and signed up immediately. 

Each week I look forward to Sophie’s class; it’s invigorating, uplifting, sexy and relaxing.  I have learned so many great things about myself both spiritually and physically from the classes.  I’ve met other great women who are also inspiring and a pleasure to be with during class.  I can feel myself becoming more positive, confident, clear-headed and stronger with every class.  The dance that Sophie teaches makes you really feel present and pleasurable in your own body.  I also love Sophie’s day-after emails that summarize the class content and leave you feeling truly inspired.  The homework component is a great addition and is a personal journal of self-reflection. 

I have never in my life taken a course like this before that has had such a positive and lasting impact on me.  It is all-encompassing and I would do it again in a heartbeat !  It’s a must try for every woman!”

“The Juicy Woman’s Revolution course has offered me way more than I bargained for!  I joined the class expecting to learn some fun, sexy dance moves and have come away from the class with a deeper insight into myself, tools in my toolkit to get myself out of a desire-less, stagnant funk and a feeling of reconnecting with myself.  As someone who adores self-exploration and prides themselves self-examination from many angles, I was surprised by the power and perspective Sophie’s journaling exercises offered me.  Ever week, we got the absolute pleasure of hearing Sophie’s candid, relatable and poignant views on pleasure, desire and how to reawaken the women within.  From the first class onwards, I gained a new-found curiosity about myself and I have given myself more license to feel whatever it is I’m feeling and, most importantly, to start thinking about what *I*want, what *I* need and what *I* desire.   If you’re feeling like you’re just floating through life, feeling a sense of emptiness, or you just want to have fun, I strongly recommend taking Sophie’s class! I guarantee that you won’t regret it!”

“I’m not a dancer even though the idea of being one deeply attracts me.  If you feel that way, Sophie will help you find that inside you – she’s a really amazing teacher  (fun, funny, honest and supportive) who will show you how to really own the dance she teaches. She even went over those little technical questions that made me feel I really got the moves. Surprisingly, that wasn’t the whole magic of her course. I started the course feeling a little ‘dry’ in my heart, body and life.  My life looked good on paper but I didn’t feel that there was much sensual, expressive, dream potential left in it. This course really shifted those feelings and I found out that I still have a large number of dreams left to live.  Some of the classes left me tingling with transgression and a feeling of, ‘wow, some really cool things can still happen in my life’.  Learning the movement and letting myself go I got lost in the music and my own expression and found that strong, fearless and fun-loving core inside me that is a hell of a lot more joyful than my day-to-day self.  I’ll have what she’s having (laugh). l really appreciate and thank Sophie for helping me find her. Thank you Sophie!!

“I was encouraged to get further in touch with the sensual part of my body which I would not have otherwise done…I noticed how all the self-doubt or self-detrimental thoughts would disappear here, in terms of how I feel about my body or body parts. All were loved.”

“I feel so amazing. I almost feel like I could fly. I feel like I can achieve anything, accomplish anything, do anything. I feel full of love, for the women I shared tonight with and especially for myself.”

“I feel proud of myself…I feel tremendously satisfied for pushing my own boundaries…Feeling like a tired, overweigh mom is the least sexy I’ve felt, maybe ever. I feel like the course has helped me reclaim my sexuality, my power. LOVE this!”

“I feel more in tune with what brings me pleasure and what brings my husband pleasure – not necessarily in a sexual way but I see the pleasure in small sweet moments we share and I purposefully stay in those moments – I’m more present in those moments now, and he is too.”

“I’m much kinder in my assessment of my body now. (She does a lot for me!) Also, seeing all the beautiful and varied women in this class and realigning that everyone’s different but equally beautiful made me realize I can see myself as beautiful too.”

“This course is for any woman who wants to get back into her flow – to feel her body and her power more intimately. It’s for any woman longing to reconnect to herself physically and sensually who is ready to really wake up to the things she really wants and needs from her life. And it’s for any woman curious about exploring the grace and sensuality of freestyle dance in a supportive and fun environment. I feel more free. I feel more alive, with a more conscious connection to my body…I’m watching the movements of my body and noticing they’re more confident and more expressive. And I’m noticing that I’m using my body to move through emotions, letting my body express them for me to help me understand what I’m feeling – which is a revelation. The “vocabulary” of movements I learned in the course and the experience of being witnessed have also given me a boost of confidence around dancing. I’m walking away with a delicious hunger to continue exploring dance and to keep this emotional “channel” open.

“(Women would benefit from this course) if they are trying to find a way to truly reconnect with themselves. To find a way to dedicate time and give space to the voice that we all have inside of us. To nurture, to listen, to expand on the many parts of ourselves, to integrate, accept and align them. The women who take this class are ready to embark on a journey…they may not know how or why, but they know that there is more. I feel as though I’m so much stronger. I feel as thought I’m beginning to care a lot less about what “others” are doing and am paying more attention to what feels right for me. Listening to that. Honouring that. Right now, I feel this quiet intensity to me…like a capped electro-sized circuit that’s just abuzz with raw energy. I have been re-empowered. It has given me a tool with which to process, integrate and gain alignment with who I am at this particular moment, with which to listen without judgement or filter. Such a gift.”
