I met Serafina about four years ago, and ever since then my life has been completely changed.
Of course I've become healthier and more active, but I think what is most unspoken about Serafina is the fact that she's such a down to earth instructor who CARES for her students and takes the time to break everything down for the individual until they get it right. She's very patient and understanding, and what surprised me most was the fact that I felt like I had truly become a part of something, not just a belly dance group-- but part of a family. I had gained confidence being surrounded by like-minded women who were more than happy to take the journey with me.
Serafina offers a place to relax, learn, and coexist peacefully-- all while shredding away at calories. I mean, you do work up quite a sweat and I've been doing this for almost four years now.
The studio is spacious and homey with plenty of wall length mirrors so that you can see what you're doing. It's always warm and welcoming and not to mention, clean. It also includes hard wood floors, which is nice compared to the other surfaces I've danced on.
This instructor, whom is not only well versed in her lessons but also well varied in her style, is certainly a person I would have gone to again and again, and it's easy to say that she's a diamond in the rough.
Seriously, go check her out-- I found her by mere mistake on google search-- but I'm so glad I did. I learned how to be comfortable in my skin, gained tons of new friends, was able to become less stiff, learned how to take what I hear and put it into motion, and have an amazing workout all for a very reasonable price-- And that's saying something as I live off a college-kid budget. Seriously. For what you get, you can't beat it!
