About Mariposa Movement

Mariposa Movement exists to expand the paradigm of what's possible. To remind you that you are here to thrive. 

Dance is our medium + method.
The pathway home to what we know in our bones,
beyond any of the stories we've been told.

The butterfly is our blueprint
As we learn to let the old ways die
and remember that like the caterpillar,
we are here to FLY.

Mariposa Movement is

a path
there's a map to metamorphosis. knowing this helps us navigate the territory of our transformation. dying is not always easy or pretty, but it's how we learn about flying.
a practice
the daily dance matters. when we show up for ourselves & our movement practice, we show up for our lives.  dancing regularly raises our vibration, expands our minds + keeps us centered in our truest intentions & desires.
a paradigm
this is about so much more than dance. this is a paradigm shift. this is about rebirthing ourselves for the good of all. when one of us butterflies, we all win.  this is about inhabiting our bodies fully, activating our magic + choosing to thrive. 

Our Story

MelissaRobin-9505.jpg

Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish. Mariposa Movement is a natural outgrowth of my own healing journey. Out of the many deaths, rebirths & personal initiations that have led to this Mariposa moment. Out of years spent living in the Costa Rican jungle, expanding my consciousness, surrounded by actual butterflies and their constant reminders of the beauty and transformation possible in our lives. 

Mariposa Movement is a celebration of nature & the organic wisdom coursing through our veins.  In times where an ever-accelerating technocracy threatens our humanity, Mariposa Movement is a stand for the most essential & empathic parts of our nature. ​

 

It is the mission of Mariposa Movement to connect you to your intuition + power through dance. To remind you that you are here to thrive & that everything else is a myth. Our work is reclamation. It is revolution. It is bravery. And in these times, it is more important than ever. Join us.

Yesterday during my morning meditation I tuned into our Mariposa Movement class from Tuesday and I felt such joy spread throughout my body! It was so lovely. I can’t wait for the next class!
