GROUP LESSONS AND VIDEOS
Roula Said’s Seven waves is a moving experience. It is moving through space in a delicious way; moving energy through the entire body; spiritually moving , moving body and mind in a relaxed harmony which creates a grace of movement and a feeling of grace. One is moved by music that is beautiful, joyful and sometimes almost trance-inducing. It includes the smallest and subtlest of movements that bring remarkable comfort and release. It is moving to strength. The seven waves strengthen core muscles. My back problems have diminished. Without my even noticing, my abs are stronger than any time in my entire life. Wow. It’s an extra.
For me the Seven waves is also about moving forward into the future. In my 60’s, when I might expect to be shutting down and accepting the limitations of my aging body, accustoming myself to all the minor aches and pains, I am delighted instead to find myself opening up and finding that my body and I are happier together than we have ever been.
In her classes Roula speaks of allowing, inviting, opening, listening. Her approach is gentle – one never fears injury or strain. It is the polar opposite of boot camp. She has an uncanny intelligence about the body and a very sensitive intuition. Often when she initiates a subtle change to movement, it is exactly what my body wants, and I wonder: how did she know that?
Oh, and it’s not all airy-fairy cosmic either. Earthy is a better description and with Roula, laughter is always part of the process. A seven waves session feels like a total body massage and produces feelings of joy and contentment. Really. It is that good. I love it.

Thank you again for arranging all to bring your insights, movement and song to Wyldwood Sojourn.
I think you stirred something ancient in us…something to re-member (that was dis-membered) This work stirred our souls’ ancient memories and awakened the potential to re-develop the power to heal ourselves, with the deep nurturing wisdom of the feminine path, that is at the same time, lighthearted, sensuous and playful..
…Your retreat was so much loved and you are certainly wanted back. Jesse is integrating it into her life and her husband wants to learn the Seven Waves too. I have 2 other men who may also come.
The music aspect was cherished as well. So thank you for squeezing us in to your schedule!

Roula has a way of cutting through the facades and seeing the essence of things, of people. She uses this magic ability to help those around her find their own way, their authentic voice. She enables, nurtures, and embraces darkness and light with the same grace and courage. She is a natural healer, and a friend.
