When we move, we heal. When we heal, we transform.
I have found a way, and I am here to share it with you.
Live Love Move is about moving your body to connect more deeply to your life. Hello, I am Teresa D'Angelo. I am a dancer, teacher and healer, and I am so grateful you are here.
Like you, perhaps, I started off life as a vibrant soul with fantastic dreams and a creative imagination. I wanted to be a professional dancer but that shifted into a focus on television and radio broadcasting. I then switched to a business career that paid very well, yet demanded much more of me. Over time, the REAL ME, the passionate and lively ME, started to become quiet. My voice was shutting down and my body would soon follow.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) caused excruciating inflammation in my joints. It left me on the couch, sleeping away the days and not being able to stand up or turn a doorknob without severe pain. Through this "gift of illness" that lasted years, I was led to a healing movement practice called Nia. I was overjoyed! Dance always made me feel alive and now I got to move in a way that my body loved.
At my first Nia class the instructor showed us a simple step and suggested I “move in MY way.” I will always remember that moment. I felt a wave of relief in my body and I knew I had to learn and offer this amazing dance to others who were also in pain.
Movement heals and transforms us and it helps us feel better about ourselves. We hold “issues in our tissues” from past traumas that healing movement can help release.
Through the private sessions, group classes and workshops that Live Love Move offers, you will learn to connect with your body in a new way, to discover the YOU that’s been waiting to be seen and heard. It doesn’t matter if you have never danced in your life, if you are a professional dancer or athlete, or if you are an older adult. Classes are adaptable to all body types and ages.
Together we can transform ourselves through movement. I work with women and men of all ages and professions -- teachers, CEOs, scientists, therapists, and the list goes on, from people experiencing chronic pain to those who feel healthy. I hope you’ll join me!
