WITCHY WOMAN PROGRAM

Witchy Woman Program is a system of practices developed by Tanya Lee for the Body Art Motion school of transformation. Her system is rooted in 25 years of study, practice and integration of ancient knowledge into modern life for the purpose of cultivating inner strength, intuition, self-awareness and creativity.

Through Tanya’s courses, she shares and explores with you, personal rituals for living in alignment with natural cycles and universal concepts. Modalities explored include astrology, moon cycles, chakra energy centers, meditation and breathwork, elemental work (fire, water, air, earth), ceremonial magick, Tarot, Qabala, and western mysticism.

We are currently offering Witchy Woman Neophyte level courses in various topics.  The word Neophyte comes from the Latin ‘neo’ meaning ‘new’ and ‘phytos’ meaning ‘planted’, aka a person who is new to a subject, skill, or belief. You may not be new to these concepts, this just means that you are new to the Witchy Woman format. You can arrive with experience in the witchy things, or with none at all.  A beginner’s mind is a beautiful thing to behold. 

While concepts of spirituality, manifestation and etheric awareness are explored – we aim to stay clear of dogmatic authority or right/wrong, good/bad impositions.  The hope is that you feel free to honor and create your own personal beliefs with the context of this system. After all, the most powerful transformations happen when you feel empowered to walk your own unique path. 

Please Note: Results are not guaranteed. There are no refunds after the first hour of presentation has completed. In no way are these practices intended to replace nor act in place of your professional health care providers (mental, physical or emotional).

Inclusivity Policy:  Even though the course name infers a gender exclusion, this is not the case.  The author and program originator is female presenting, thus the name Witchy Woman since the perspective is through their lens. If you have a desire to experience these practices and connect with a witchy community, all genders, bodies, minds and hearts are welcomed. While there are too many factors to be able to guarantee a safe space for all, we are continually seeking more knowledge on how to increase our awareness of safety in group work.  Everyone will need to sign the Body Art Motion legal waiver prior to attending your first class with us. Please read our full inclusivity policy for our current boundaries and protocol.  


TANYA LEE
WITCHY WOMAN PROGRAM CREATOR

Hello, I am the founder and director of Body Art Motion. For the last 25 years I’ve been studying, implementing and sharing transformational mind-body practices. I have studied a wide range of disciplines, but continue to be drawn to the challenge and simplicity of integrating ancient knowledge into functional modern-day practices.

Witchy Woman was conceived circa 2005/06 while I was completing my professional astrology certificate with the late Kelly Lee Phipps. Since then, it has been forged in the alchemical fires many times over.  The program style and identity has evolved over time.  For the first few years, I was apprehensive about presenting my secret passions to the public. This stuff is not as scary, unscientific or imaginary as we might believe – but hard truth exposes the fact that innocent people were burned alive for doing a lot less than astrology and moon rituals.  To my surprise I started to notice how many people, from all walks of life, loved learning about the functionality of moon phases and chakras.  Eventually I just accepted that this is, what it is: “witchy work”.

In those 15 years of exploration I created, practiced and taught multiple applications of the format: corporate productivity and life balance, professional athlete development, dance programs, women’s transformation circles, and a yoga teacher training program.  This new 2022 version feels like home and what a trip it’s been getting here!  I aim to do all that I can to harvest lessons from my mistakes, build on the successes, and serve this work and the people drawn to it, to the best of my ability.

In true Aquarian fashion, I live life in constant experimentation.  I have always had this unquenching passion for study and practice – and the sharing of it with my friends.  I am obsessed with the mysteries of life, the wisdom of nature and the cosmos, what lies beneath the surface, and the untapped power potential of the human mind and heart. I am beyond excited to share in this journey with you through the Witchy Woman program.  xoT
