More on Azul Conscious Movement: Denise teaches a modality of conscious dance called "Azul Conscious Movement", that was founded 10 years ago by the previous 5 Rhythms teacher of over 20 years, Amara Pagano. She developed a beautiful spiral map, that when embodied can awaken consciousness and connect us to our hearts to awaken love.
In each class, the facilitator uses elements of the spiral in which to explore as well as it follows what she coined the "4 orientations" of "Listening, Allowing, Opening and Moving Towards".
During each Azul class, we call on the intelligence of our body which contains all the information needed in order to complete our healing journey and access our full power.
Through music and movement we can often get into our bodies to actually feel what is going on, then through the process of dance and the "journey" that the facilitator takes us on, it can help liberate the stuck energy and move into more wholeness and connection with what our bodies are trying to tell us.

About the Facilitators
Ruby, founder of Inspire Studio has been teaching yoga in Bellingham since 2009. She offers a variety of classes including various forms of Vinyasa Flow, Gentle Flow, Yin, Restorative, and Kundalini Yoga. Her intention is always to teach from her heart, with an emphasis on accommodating you wherever you're at. Ruby’s aim is to cultivate a sense of community and she loves working with the divine feminine as well as the medium of sound healing. She has crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, a Chau and a Moon Gong. In addition to her Kundalini Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga 200 hr. certifications, she has completed a level 1 & advanced gong training and is now a 500 hour RYT.
Denise, a long time student and lover of dance and body focused work. She is a former Nia instructor, but wanted something more from a spiritual and personal growth standpoint combined with movement and dance, which she found so perfectly in Azul. She longed to teach through this method combining everything she has learned.
She joined the long journey to become an Azul teacher. She finished the online training and apprenticeship over the last 2 years and the final in person training for the Azul Conscious Movement Teacher Training in Italy this last July.
Denise is also a NeuroMovement Practitioner (similar to Feldenkrais) and has taught here at Inspire Studio back before the pandemic. Then needed to take a break to finish her new love, the Azul training as well as balance work, family etc .
The NeuroMovement work she found in 2016 has been a wonderful prelude to further her embodiment journey and she uses elements of what the NeuroMovement training provided her to help people listen deeply to their body and connect to the wealth of wisdom and power it has for us.
Denise's Aim is exactly that to help us EMBODY and FEEL and INTEGRATE all parts of us, our physical, spiritual, emotional and mental bodies.
