A.M. – Let’s Build a Home for Embodied Fitness! | Awaken. Activate. Embody. Raising funds for new wellness space.
A Word From Gabrielle
At A.M., we believe everyone has their own internal wisdom and that the combination of awareness and movement can provide access to that knowledge.
I was lucky enough to begin my teaching odyssey when I was thirteen, working with the littlest of movers. In the almost three decades since then I have been a professional dancer, choreographer and dance educator working with movers of all ages and abilities locally, nationally and abroad. This studio is the culmination of years of learning from my students. They taught me that behind the desire for people to move is most often the desire to know themselves and to be known.
This type of knowing, this wisdom that I’ve heard so many of us seeking comes when we are able to listen to, learn from and validate what our bodies know. In my experience, moving integrates the mind and body allowing for the messages that reside below the neck to be experienced. This puts us in conversation with ourselves while also challenging and sculpting our bodies.
I need your help to create a safe and welcoming space so this unique approach to wellness can succeed. By giving to this campaign you can help build a home for this new approach to mind-body integration and help people improve their lives and their communities.
What A.M. Needs & What You Get
I’m raising $5,000 to help cover the costs of floors, mirrors, new lights, matts and other start up costs.
We’ve got some great perks that range from merch to movement and even a chance to be featured in our first Mandala Dance Project!
The Ripple Effect
This will be my third business to help launch! I have successfully helped open a thriving dance studio in East Nashville and Co-Founded a burlesque school, Nashville’s own Delinquent Debutantes. Recently, I helped my husband open his own business, Third Coast Comedy Club.
In each instance I’ve witnessed the community that has sprung up around these businesses and how it has transformed the people that join them. I know A.M. can have a huge impact on our community and eventually go beyond Nashville to benefit even more people. It will be another great place for people to come and discover themselves and each other. The world is a better place when we’re all present and with your help A.M. can do it’s part to get us closer to living in harmony.
