Paula Foster discovered the healing power of
dance while at a retreat at Kripalu in 2011.
She was a long time student of Kripalu Yoga.
Paula discovered the noontime Yoga Dance class
at Kripalu. She was instantly hooked on the feeling that
resulted. She had never thought of herself as
a “dancer”. However she was very fond of dancing
around the house with fun and uplifting music.
Paula Foster decided to pursue her Let Your Yoga Dance
certification during that trip. Today she considers it
one of the most healing and transformational
things she has ever done.
While pursuing her teacher training, Paula Foster
was also becoming a certified Integrative Nutrition Coach. She was in the process of transforming
her life. She was transforming her work, too, after
a divorce. Her life was changing in the
most beautiful way across body, mind and spirit!
She began teaching Let-Your-Yoga-Dance classes
in Kittery and Eliot, Maine. She
found continous healing while leading each class.
“Seeing women really come into their bodies and explore
their chakras is joy. Watching them come into such a place
is a beautiful thing to witness in others,” states Paula.
Inspired by the happiness and healing Paula
launched a new type of free style dance
class last fall called “Dancing Without Rules“.
The best elements of Yoga Dance and
Ecstatic Dance were combined. The results:
this class, designed to take women on a journey
through the Chakras. It is set to fun, inspiring and
uplifting music. No rules, just a joyous journey
in a safe and sacred space.
Paula Foster received her
at Kripalu with Megha-Nancy Buttenheim.
She recieved her health coach training
at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
in New York City. She is a
member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and holds a B.A. in Communications
from the University of Southern Maine.
Paula Foster offers individual health coaching to adults in person and via phone. She leads workshops and
group coaching programs. She leads a dance class and a goddess group here at YbD. She also leads educational programs for Beautifully Empowered living.
