As we grow older, a lot of women naturally shut their bodies down. We stop moving and grooving. Caring for others more than we care for ourselves has worn us out. I remind women to take pleasure in swaying and swinging their hips again. In class we pose like goddesses and move our arms and legs with rhythm and passion. Sexy becomes our sacred work and our mission. There is a sleeping goddess inside every woman and I’m on a mission to wake her Up,” reveals Makeda.
