Why do you love Divine Movement?
So many reasons. The best reason for me is ultimately, the acceptance here. Being a plus-size lady, for me it has been be hard to feel accepted in places of movement. I never felt that way at Divine. I have always felt encouraged and never left out. The environment at the studio is so supportive of everyone. It’s like a drug and I’m addicted!
