Greeting from Raylá
I'm Raylá. I am an educator and dance instructor that uses sensual movement as a mode of healing. I am a non-binary femme artist who uses they/them pronouns. I host workshops and classes centering feminine healing.
After 5 years in a physically abusive relationship, I found my power through burlesque dance and creating my own group of performers. I am an advocate for survivors of sexual violence and an ally to sex workers! I am not a "peace, love, and light" healer. I deal with the duality of reality and the need for balance in all things. I am very passionate about feminine leadership and black mental health. I hope we remain in alignment and conjure up some "gud stuff" together!!
