WU TAO SUCCESS STORIES
- Mary Ann Williams
Thank you for a soul connecting workshop of music and dance. The retreat venue for the retreat was excellent and the food just delicious. Michelle’s gentleness, good explanation of the movements and philosophy created a great learning environment. I look forward to joining future retreats and workshops!
- Cath Wagner
I really had no idea what I would experience at the retreat, but was more than happy with how it all turned out. I’ve never felt that I could dance. I’m usually so stiff being an ex-sportswoman, but after the wonderful meditation, stretches, and relaxing chats with new friends, I found that dancing came very naturally to me!
This week has been such a transformation, bringing back lots of joy and creativity into my soul. The kind and soft teaching of Michelle has opened a large door into my soul.
