Last Friday we had Tene doing belly dancing with our girls support group here at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen. It was exactly what we were looking for. I myself felt so powerful just in the fact that I’m a woman--after being reminded that we possess endless creative energy.

"I started taking classes at House of Bastet in September of 2011. Now, almost eight months later, I have nothing but positive remarks to leave about my experience there. The instructors make sure that every single class is fun, but there also immediate benefits to be seen and felt. I have lost almost thirty pounds in eight months, without making any significant changes to my diet and other exercise regimens. I feel stronger and more flexible, and I see muscle tone forming that I haven’t had in years. I have NEVER been the girl who everyone comes to for workout advice, and suddenly all of my girlfriends want to know how I’ve made such a drastic transformation in such a short period of time. The benefits have been more than physical, however – my confidence is improved, and I now experience on an almost daily basis an overall sense of happiness that stems from my new body and attitude. The classes are super affordable, and the class sizes are small enough that I have ended up with amazing one-on-one instruction and coaching on multiple occasions. I live approximately a half hour away from the studio, and I have never once regretting making the commute. I highly recommend House of Bastet to anyone who asks me about it – it’s a fabulous investment in both your body and your happiness."
