“Femme! is a class geared towards people who … want to explore expressive movement. These classes are one way of tasting the power in consciously moving emotions through your body and allowing them fuller expression than what is typically available to us in our day-to-day lives.”

– Alicia Munoz, LPC, Author of No More Fighting: The Relationship Book for Couples: 20 Minutes a Week to a Stronger Relationship

“Like most women, I was taught to conceal my deep-seated anger and grief. B[ernadette] has inspired me to liberate myself from feeling any shame for having a full range of emotions. In her Femme! class, we move out EVERRYTHANNG from sadness to FLIRTATIOUSNESS! Her one day experience ‘Emotion in Motion’ and her luscious retreat in Jamaica were the revolutionary medicine supporting me in moving out all of the loaded feelings I was carrying my first year of motherhood. Learning to accept and love the many gorgeous facets of myself has helped me remove the judgment and, instead set my body on fire!”

– Leora Edut, Author of Goddess on the Go: Rituals to Help You Slow Down and Slay
