You will learn to move your body through shapes that appear in nature such as circles, figure 8’s, undulations and spirals.
INNOVATIVE VEIL WORKSHOP
Bored with using the same old veil moves? Then come to Kaeshi’s veil workshop to be inspired with lots of new ideas.

There will be a couple of extras to borrow.
