Smidge Isgrig is a Creative Movement Instructor from Tulsa, OK with an emphasis on Emotional Repair through Physical Exploration by Alignment, Breath Focus, and Mental Engagement. With a life-long background in a myriad of styles, Smidge has compiled her training in to an easily digestible format, fit for any level of student. At age 19, Smidge met her kindred mentor, Star Hachem, and began training in the ancient form of Raqs Sharki, or, Oriental Dance. Through this training, she acquired the knowledge of root connection, pelvic posture, and application of energy flow through the body, by turning on the mind. After applying this practice to her everyday life, the endless benefits made themselves very clear. Suddenly, the daunting lack of self-security diminished and replaced itself with the powerful, confident woman that was there all along, waiting to be discovered. After discovering her power, Smidge made a commitment to humanity to pass this information along to all who would listen in hopes to share the many powerful benefits of self love and respect. Her objective as an instructor is to introduce her students to their own power and creative voice through expressive movement

Connie Hansen’s metaphysical training includes remedies and strategies for active visualization and personal empowerment, Raja Yoga with Guruchandra 2 years plus 35 years of practical yoga, Degree in Social Work, Pagan Studies, and leadership classes with Ardantane and practical experience with personal and group rituals. This experience can be used as personal ritual work for individuals to shed unwanted negative energy and accumulations from past difficult lessons. The goal of ritual work is to help a person reflect their gifts to “leave this world with a heart as light as a feather”. Rituals suggestions will be something the person will do for themselves with guided suggestions. The cost of such ritual plans will vary with what is needed to be done. Some people work better with altars so I can offer specific Vastu Shastra Vedic Altar constructions for long term creation of what you want to manifest.
