News from Leslie & Shakti Fusion
After experiencing a rewarding eight year relationship with Makin' Moves Studio, I'm deeply saddened to announce that we will be parting ways. Sharply increasing costs of rent in this neighbourhood generally have made it impossible for any independent instructor to afford the space (let alone, for the owner to rent it to us at a loss), and thus a transition will emerge.
We are grateful to both the previous owner, Erin, and the current owner, Michelle, for accommodating Shakti fusion and supporting Tribal fusion belly dance through its establishment in Ottawa, for being wonderful to work with, and for creating a welcoming community space, and we encourage dancers to support this unique studio space and its ongoing courses.
For the moment, I'll be focusing on completing my graduate studies and running a few workshops, before searching for a new long term home in the downtown Ottawa area. In the meantime, I encourage all our past and present students to keep up your practice and keep an eye on this list for information on our upcoming events :)

OTHER ONLINE POSTING:
For those who use Shira.net:
From a local former teacher:
"I noticed that I was still listed as a dancer/teacher in the Ottawa/ON/Canada area on Shira's site and asked her to remove me. She told me to use the "update" form at www.shira.net/directory.htm
Perhaps you could post it to your Dancer's Newsletter for a) new dancers/teachers who want to be added and b) old dancers who want to update their contact info."

Hypnosis for women
Judy White MacDonald...Nursing Consultant, Professional Coach, Clinical Hypnotist
All aspects of our lives add to the definition of who we are as women, but the person ‘at the core' is the most important one. Connection with this ‘real' self identity is necessary for us to answer all the important questions in our lives and to find that often elusive joy, happiness, success, peace and contentment.
As women, so many of us have been trained to put the needs of others first. We so often don't even understand what our needs are, or what to do about them. Hypnosis allows us to relax and allow the subconscious mind to reveal truths and strengths which might never have come to light otherwise. There are many ways in which hypnosis can be helpful to women. Please connect to: http://www.timeforachange.ca/womenspage.htm and learn what hypnosis can do for you!
