Dance Your Bliss is a system of personal transformation using music, movement, sacred expression, poetry, art-making, and dance.  Come experience your body’s inherent wisdom.

We have a need to feel joyful, creative, and intimate. We're all born with oodles of awesomeness, but somewhere along the way we forget. Dance helps us remember. It clears out lies that we tell ourselves about our unworthiness. 

Dance cuts right through the bulls--t and shows us who we are and who we are becoming. 

When you attend a Dance Your Bliss workshop, you will:  

  • Improve energy and vitality
  • Inspire a happier, more joyful outlook
  • Build confidence
  • Improve body image
  • Help battle depression
  • Ease pain
  • Improve sleep
  • Develop mindful awareness
  • Lower blood pressure

Every now and then I’ll hear about a teacher from students whose work seems particularly moving and powerful. Rachel Fleischman is one of those teachers.

It all started when…

Dance Your Bliss was developed in 1999 during Rachel’s tenure as a social worker at a psychiatric hospital in Philadelphia.

“One we would start moving,  would see patients who were severally depressed, or mute even, start to come alive,” says Rachel.

“I worked with women and girls with severe eating disorders and depression. They hated themselves and were literally trying to disappear. I drew from my yoga training, expressive psychology, guided imagery, and relaxation techniques. I would see my my patients transform and touch a glimmer of hope and joy. 

Almost 20 years later, I see that when we move with permission, safety, and compassion, we enter a place of relaxation, trust, and self-love. I see this in every class I teach."

In addition to Dance Your Bliss workshops, Rachel offers one-on-one Bliss Coaching sessions. Learn more about Bliss Coaching or contact Rachel to book time. 


While amazingly skilled and deeply grounded in many techniques and therapeutic modalities — it is Rachel's authentic presence that gives her work such power. She shines her light in all areas of her work — whether she is teaching or in one-on-one counseling. She literally and virtually moves individuals into expanded creativity, new possibilities, and greater fulfillment.
