I feel so blessed to have met Kitara and get the opportunity to take two of her workshops last weekend. Her practice helped me develop in an area of my growth that has been stunted: dance. Partner dance is an area of fear for me due to the trauma of forced dance in elementary and middle school. I spent years avoiding any kind of partner dance due to self-consciousness and shame. In the past few years, more than a few people have tried to teach me to dance, but it never worked. When Kitara explained and demonstrated dance to me, I could feel synapses lighting up in my brain. She explained it with simple physics in a way that made sense, and she spent extra time with me one-on-one. Her grace and ease as a teacher helped melt some of my self-consciousness and get me out of my head, even though people were watching us. She was so sweet to spend extra time teaching partner dance to me and her joy teaching came through strongly. I recommend Kitara to anyone looking to imrpove their body-awareness and grace. Her knowledge and skill-base are impressive but what really makes her stand out is her sense of presence, empathy and ability to connect with her students. Thanks Kitara! <3
Kitara Rain Amore is a gifted spiritual practitioner who transmutes light into love infusing with her fingers into the flesh and into the soul. As a recipient of her healing services, she left me with a feeling of joy and peace beyond what I had previously known. Her love does not arouse but rather awakens a sense of newness from transformation. I had been carrying a longtime problem and she helped me over the hump. I highly recommend her services to those longing to remember the wisdom of youthful purity. Kitara is certainly one of these new generation of young people meant to guide the world into a better path.
My experience with Kitara has been unique and transformational. She has the ability to tune into the structural and energetic framework of the body and assess what needs to move. A recent session was a dream come true. Due to much computering and other repetitive motions my arms had become "twisted". That's how I viewed it and had been looking for someone to help for a long time. Without verbally communicating this, Kitara came to the same conclusion, and proceeded with the untwisting process. This has allowed much freedom in my movement that I had not experienced in some time. The effects continue to unfold. I highly recommend working with her to facilitate your body's healing process. Thank you Kitara!

At the age of 6, I started learning Tae Kwon Do which evolved to include Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, and Qi Gong along with many other styles over the years. At the age of 8, I started assisting in classes and teaching the belts lower than myself, including adults. At the age of 10, my parents were going through financial hardship and could no longer afford our lessons, so I started teaching regularly and assisting with the front desk and overall care of the studio in exchange for my lessons. This was one of the most valuable life lessons I could have experienced.
All students from 2 1/2 years old to over 90! Many with mental and physical handicaps. The current demographic I'm working with are individuals who are ready to do the work and become fuller more embodied versions of their truest selves. Through my support, training, practical tools, and life-hacks, I hope to inspire others to be the best they can be and more!
