Program for Women Builds Confidence through Movement

Jan 06, 2019 12:19PM

For women whose poor self-esteem keeps them from reaching their goals, Celeste DeCamps offers simple advice: “If your body believes, your mind will follow.” A professional belly dancer of 25 years, DeCamps teaches women to use movement and postures to become more self-assured and successful. “If you want to change your attitude for the better, start with your body,” she says. “Our emotions are reflected by the way we sit, stand and walk. There are ways to look and feel confident even when our minds tell us the opposite. When we tap into our natural abilities, we can be financially as well as emotionally successful.” DeCamps helps women reshape their attitudes by engaging in a few simple body movements, such as a “power pose” to build their confidence before an important interview, and postures that will enable them to command a room. The movements she teaches are empowering yet convey women’s innate femininity, grace and creativity. She also shares breathing techniques for staying calm and overcoming anxiety. Her program is designed to be relatable and interactive, incorporating her personal stories along with interviews with other women who found their confidence through dancing. “We all get up and move,” she says. “It’s important to feel how our mindset changes when we put our body into different positions.” For more information, visit
