Instructor Ilene Marks, Certified Heal Your Life Workshop Leader:
"I have been an educator, public speaker, children’s business owner for the past decade. I now believe one of the most important subjects to teach is how to train your mind to be feel happier. Yes, you can become happier just by changing your thoughts. People need to have the tools to be aware of their thoughts, change them and reinforce positive ones. This takes practice. We think 60-90K thoughts a day and studies believe approximately 80% of our thoughts are negative. I have been trained through the Louise Hay Foundation, to teach this subject in a simple, clear, step by step workshop with music and relaxation techniques. Louise Hay techniques involve positive affirmation, mirror work, and changing your thoughts to achieve a better life. It is really easy to incorporate in your daily life if you are aware. I offer an introduction to this thought process. Join a workshop and see for yourself. Please tell friends. The results are amazing and life changing. I feel so blessed to use these thought patterns and feel much more joy."
Perfect holiday gift. Please bring an open heart and smile!

Flirt4Play: Burlesque Workshop with Rodney James
Burlesque dance is a unique and entertaining form of fitness where sweat meets deep self discovery. As Rodney James, creator of RAWR says, "Being sexy ain't easy!" Apart from the physical benefits, this class will help you find your inner sass whilst having fun in a friendly positive atmosphere.
This workshop will be a Valentine's Day theme called Flirt4Play. Flirtation is the game where everybody wins! The invitation to romance, the prelude to seduction... or just for the fun of it. The art of flirtation has been too long suppressed -- it's time to set your Flirt free! Let Rodney help you get reacquainted with your inner Flirt, to master flirtation with energy, style, and flair... to use your smoldering eyes, sultry lips, and sassy hips to lure and tease your audience whilst knowing it's all about you! Learn the art of seduction and be more empowered.
