Bernadette Pleasant has built an exciting career in women's personal growth, wellness, lifestyle, and fitness. Through her passion for personal self expression, she discovered dance, sensual movement and healing arts and parlayed those interests into teaching the Nia Technique (a Green Belt Instructor), Ageless Grace and Femme (a technique in sensuality that she originated). She is a certified Reiki healer and integrates sensation, pleasure and the wellbeing of the “whole person” into her students’ experience. Bernadette’s classes in NY & NJ create a supportive, nurturing environment that challenges women to connect with their authentic selves. Women move their hips and celebrate their beauty against a backdrop of sensual music and nurturing motivation from Bernadette. She formerly owned a couture bridal boutique and worked with famed designer Vera Wang. She resides in New Jersey with her husband Ron and is a proud mother and a grandmother of three.
