A Movement Workshop by Vicki Igbokwe-Ozoagu
Saturday 3 June 2023, 14:00-15:30
The Empowerment session is delivered through movement, conversation and head wrapping. Celebrating women and girls, creating a safe space for self-discovery and the opportunity to tap into your authentic self. We embrace the importance of headwraps to women, including religion, a bad hair day, fashion, protective styling and loss of hair. This session encourages participants to think Fierce, be Fabulous and live Free… building self-confidence, counteracting the trend of young girls and women developing self-esteem issues-allowing women to celebrate who they are, to see themselves positively and feel uplifted. We engage in a universal discussion, as hair and beauty affect women of all ages, races, hair types and religious backgrounds.
Vicki will take you on a journey of fun, laughter, and self-discovery. She doesn’t just ‘teach’, she mentors and coaches her learners. Empowering them to be ambitious with their future, transforming their limiting beliefs about their own ability and enabling them to push themselves further than what they think is capable.

Vicki wants you to know…
It’s not about how many times you ‘fail’ and all about the LEARNING YOU DISCOVER to support you in going AGAIN.
There are some things in life worth having, that will require you to believe in your abilities even when you can’t see or feel them for yourself.
Active surrender, trust and some joy will get you moving in the right direction.
