“I turned up to the Ecstatic Awakening Dance Teacher Training full of trepidation. Just getting there had been a mission and I was very excited and very, very nervous. The next 10 days took me, and my fellow course mates, on the journey of a lifetime. We had little idea of the challenges, the tears, the laughter, the sisterhood and the release of the furious dancing to come. Rebecca Hanscombe created mirrors for us to truly see our edges, our fears, our holdings and our resistant patterns and then held us as they broke apart. She let us dive in deep into it all. Rebecca then gave us the space and the support to rebuild and strengthen from a place of love. It wasn’t an easy time for any of us but goodness me it was liberating! The training to run a class was thorough and comprehensive, so much so, I felt confident enough to start my own weekly class just 3 weeks after completing the training. If you want to do something that will transform how you feel about yourself and others I can’t recommend this teacher training highly enough. If you have been hesitating as to whether to do this course or not, I would just urge you to take the plunge and go for it. I did and it was the best decision I could ever have made.”
