What people are saying...

I’ve been facilitating corporate groups for over 20 years, and Hands Heart and Feet have provided me totally brilliant team experiences for that whole time. Yes, they are totally professional, their music, dancing and percussion are amazing, and they are SO MUCH MORE. The depth of their experience, their ability to create fast rapport with any group, and their gentle and inspired facilitation has never failed to touch the groups I have entrusted to them. They are the best.

Hands Heart and Feet have been part of the Ellison School Family for over 10 years and are highly regarded and adored by students, families and the wider school community. Emily creates inclusive, energetic and diverse lessons and presents them in a nurturing and fun environment. The focus is not only outward expression but also inner focus and connection to fellow students. Our dance performances with Emily are dynamic, uplifting and refreshingly unique!

Emily has been a guest facilitator at my Empowered Woman Retreat for the past 3 years. I keep inviting Emily back because she helps women reconnect with their bodies and wisdom in a safe, sacred and fun way. The women at the retreats love and respect Emily. Somehow, she touches on the big breakthroughs they go through, then supports them to integrate more deeply. When you attend one of Emily's workshops, you come out feeling more empowered and embodied. Thank you Emily. You truly are remarkable and gifted in what you do.
