Hip Hop & Vulnerability with GeNie Baffoe

Genie Baffoe Awesome

In this episode, I sit down with Winnipeg Hip Hop Dance Instructor (and legend) Genie Baffoe. I've taken a few of his classes with Dance With Genie and he is the most charismatic, upbeat, make-you-feel-good-even-when-you-are-tripping-over-two-left-feet instructor I've ever had. So naturally, I had to interview him and find out what his secret was to being himself, 100% of the time, loud and proud. 

If you want to see more of GeNie and learn about the history of Hip Hop in Winnipeg, his premier documentary, Our Scene, premieres July 28th at the WAG. Tickets are on Eventbrite or at the door.

#11 - Becoming a Visionary with Powerful Visualization

#11 - Becoming a Visionary with Powerful Visualization

We can't create the life of our dreams if we don't have a clear picture of what that looks like! People who are considered visionaries are able to paint a vivid dream with exact details, share it with others, and keep it in sight while they continue to take action until it becomes a reality. It's a skill that anyone can learn.

In this episode, I'll walk you through why visualizations are so powerful and how to create one for your own dreams. There is a guided visualization to create your ideal day.

#02 - Sheena Grobb: Music, Healing and Emotional Expression

I met Sheena this summer at the I AM Festival and immediately fell in love with her voice, authenticity and loveliness. 

Sheena Grobb is a self-described song bird. She is a singer-songwriter, speaker and health coach with a background teaching in high schools. Her voice has been compared to greats like Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones, with a delicacy which is almost a whisper at times that creates a sound so sweet and unique that is unmistakably hers. 

Sheena was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when she was 16-years-old and has learned to overcome some of her symptoms and struggles by listening to her body, learning how to express and feel her emotions and taking care of herself.
