When a group of strangers gathered in a beautiful studio on a sunny winter afternoon, everybody had a vague idea about what this workshop was going to be about. The workshop started with a bold, beautiful and raw theatrical dance performance by instructor Shambhavee, the powerful emotions it evoked were very evident in the eyes of participants. The icebreaker, warm-up activities, zombie fun and very important, simple yet challenging dance choreography on Memba song were an exercise in gratitude, acceptance and showing love towards your body while enjoying and having fun dancing like nobody's watching.

What a workshop this was! Honestly we had no idea how 'Home Styling with Shivani' would flow as an event since it's such a different concept and our first event at someone else's living room. But when you have an instructor as thoughtful as Shivani a.k.a. @the_usual_blahs and lovely, engaged participants, there's scope for a lot of learning and enjoyment.
