Founder of Dance Alive®
“Movement is intelligence in motion.
We all require love and dedication to be vitally alive.”
"Through Dance Alive, I’ve become more connected to the inner experience of life - the life force that is moving through me. This
connection has organically allowed me to take every area of my life - relationships, business, and personal well-being - to the
next level, again and again. I practiced and studied yoga, movement meditation, and breathing for over 14 years, and nothing I’ve ever learned has come close to the effectiveness of the Dance Alive system. It just works. Period.”
~ Meghan M.
“Dance Alive consistently provides me with an exhilarating physical workout, a psychological cleansing and a spiritual teaching. It has supported a journey from divorce to happy marriage; a self image of ‘Sufferer’ to ‘Celebrator.’ I am forever grateful to Mariane Karou and her work.”
~ Fred S.
“Dance Alive is exceptional and extraordinary in what it offers and I haven't come across anything else like it: a safe space for birthing oneself, tools for thriving, endless room for growth and expansion, participants that are willing to be challenged and ride their growing edge and a guide who is perpetually going deeper in herself and who hasn't taught until the students have learned.”
