WildCore is a dance based practice that blends choreography, conscious dance, breath-work and belonging. In this one hour introductory we will ground, build heat, find our flow, breathe and open to a new way of moving in our bodies.

Every Body is Welcome!

A little bit about Brietta:

The combination of Brietta’s devotion to the dance, her gypsy spirit, family roots & passion to support herself and others into an embodied conscious awakening has birthed her own trademarked movement form called WildCore™. Her years of study as a conscious dance leader and mentor for Soul Motion® began to blend with 16 years as a Nia® Teacher, Massage Therapist, Shamanic student, devoted yogi, pranic healer, reiki practitioner, apprentice to mother-nature, energy enthusiast & performer. All of which contributed to WildCore’s development. Brietta loves to inspire self-healing through movement.

Developing Your Fluid Power in Troy, MT

WildCore™: Developing Your Fluid Power

Friday February 23, 2018
6:00-7:00 pm
Shakti Soul, Troy, Montana

Fluid Power wakes us up to the bio intelligence of the body. In this development we do not leave anything out, we invite in our thinking, feeling, perceiving and expressive selves. Being made up of over 75% water our body’s fluid is a great conduit for sharing information. As we dance we begin to understand the language that is felt rather than heard, creating currents of resiliency, expression and self healing.

Threads we will move with:

*fluid spine that links us to our ocean roots

*folding in and out of the mid line

*allowing the fluid power of water to inspire our everyday

Cost: pre-registered $20 or $25 at the Door

Soul Motion®: Lean Back

Soul Motion®: Lean Back

w. Brietta Leader & drummer Ali Thomas

Saturday February 10th

7:00-9:00 pm

My dance completely changed when my teacher, the creator of Soul Motion, Vinn Arjuna Marti invited us to dance with our back body. Instantly, my body relaxed, my curiosity was sparked and my relationship to the space I occupied shifted.

When we relax into our feet or sit bones and gently lean back, there is an opportunity for a broader view, a chance to experience life with a perspective that is less linear and more circular and creative. This practice of Soul Motion with our beloved Ali Thomas on the drum is a great opportunity to lean back, listen and gain insight through the movement of your body.

Open to Every Body!


Cost: Sliding Scale $12-20–no pre-registration necessary

This series is designed for men and women ready to learn new ways of moving within their body, ease pain and increase overall mobility and flow.

Key components we will explore:
*Psoas function and awareness, this is our deepest core muscle.

What is WildCore on the mat?
WildCore is a blend of choreography, conscious dance, breath-work and belonging. It is designed for all levels and when offered on the mat it is essentially a dancing asana class, which means we take simple yoga poses, synchronize our movements with music and allow our untapped expression to lead.
