What Makes Me Feel Strong: What makes me feel strong: The studio. It’s my happy place. When I’m in a room full of badasses, full sweat, with the music and the lights, I forget about all the bullshit. I’m like, “bring it on world...I got this!”

Favorite Quote: "It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique. It's not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound re-invention."
What Makes Me Feel Strong: Love makes me feel strong. The love I receive from all the teachers and clients at Barre Belle, the love I receive from my boyfriend, David, and my family, and lastly the love I give myself. I can truly feel love's power work its magic at our studio. Love really does lead the work we do at Barre Belle, and to be a part of that makes me feel stronger than I have ever felt before!
Favorite Song: Song: “Cosmic Love” Florence and the Machine
Favorite Quote: “A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed color. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to. And there were no limits to anything. And the people of the world were good and handsome. And I was not afraid any more.” - John Steinbeck, East of Eden
What Makes Me Feel Strong: I feel strong when I choose ME. When I intuitively listen to what my heart and gut simultaneously tell me to do, I feel like I have stepped in to my power. It’s as simple as being as feminine as I can in my self care routines: using only candles in my house at night, dancing alone in my living room, listening to vinyl, taking long rose baths, wearing textures that makes me feel like magic, journaling poems, staring at the moon. Choosing MYSELF and all my femininity and romanticism feels the strongest for me.
Favorite Song: Wild Things by Jade Novah

Favorite Quote: “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.” -Martha Graham
What Makes Me Feel Strong: What makes me feel strong is pushing myself in a certain part of class to the point where I shake or collapse with exhaustion. I normally follow that up with a Hershey bar and a hot shower!
