The NewVo program is very professionally put together. It far exceeded my expectations. Sohaila goes above and beyond as a teacher and is excellent at everything she does. It is a very well balanced program to include overview, background, anatomy, demonstrations, participation and a chance to try our hand at teaching. Sohaila’s enthusiasm is infectious. NewVo is a long awaited and long needed multicultural methods f dance inspired fitness that draws from the poplar international music and dance scenes. the use of props and continually changing music allows the student to ‘dance around the world’ and often times it allows the student to return to or discover their cultural rhythms.

When I first started dancing 5 years ago with Sohaila I used to go home and teach my friends the moves for belly dancing and they told me I should teach later on in life. I looked at them like they were crazy. Look at me wanting to teach NewVo. I have back problems and I feel so much better when I come to class. I also come to class to help my weight issues. NewVo has helped keep the weight off. I love to dance and NewVo hlepf exercise with dance. Can’t wait to teach my first class!

NewVo fitness is a blessing to me. I have had dance training and fitness training, and NewVo has been the perfect blend for me to utilize both. I have always contemplated teaching, but never really got up the nerve to do it. Sohaila’s NewVo certification weekend is so valuable, because she generously equips us with her knowledge of not only correct belly dance technique, but also her insights into successfully teaching any BODY. After 30 years of professionally dancing and teaching, Sohaila has it down! It was fantastic to learn directly from her in an intimate class setting. After the process, I definitely felt more empowered to teach. It is intense, but is so worth it!  NewVo Certified Instructor since 2014 Mira Mesa, California

About The Instructor

I am the founder of Sohaila International, the umbrella for, The Sense-ual Woman retreats and programs, Belly dance courses and NewVo dance fitness classes. I am the author of two books on Middle Eastern dance, have created numerous signature dance DVDs, host Sohaila TV, and teach online and live dance and fitness classes. With my 35 years of dance I found a way to connect with women on a deeper level and how I do that is by teaching women to ReDiscover their own five senses and when I add the Middle Eastern authentic dance movements together they ReDiscover something more powerful within themselves this empowers all women of who they are have always wanted to be who they forgot they were and to ReDiscover their femininity again they will experience more joy more confidence and bless in their life, their confidence and their femininity will radiate from within.
