Charmed by the soulful music and Toni’s inspired musings during class, she safely allows each student to find their inner Light and connection to Source.

Toni’s personal journey began as a high school English teacher in 1993. Even then, she taught life lessons in her classroom, using creative methods to encourage students to find their inner voice and direction. She continued this focus as a co-creator of DramaWorks, an interactive theater company working with businesses and corporations to break down the barriers for more effective communication. In her earliest workshops with live drumming and journeying, she led students to deeper connection and personal healing. Then she merged her Kripalu DansKinetics® training & shamanic practice, fused it with her studies in energy work, chakras, yoga, and visualization, and founded JourneyDance™.
Toni teaches regularly at Kripalu, Omega, Esalen, Samadhi Yoga, and many more locations internationally. Her recent collaborations include Wah!, Johnny Kest, Sierra Bender, and Aviva Gold. Toni has led JourneyDance™s at numerous conferences including Toronto Yoga Conference, Natural Health Conference, World Fitness, and Coca Cola Womens Leadership Conference.
