I help women move....

Our ancestors believed in the capacity of dance to heal and transform. They danced with equal passion in the winter and sunshine days of their lives. They danced to honor, celebrate, mourn, instruct, and live life more richly. I help women move so they can start listening to their bodies. When you are attuned to the body, self-trust builds, relationships strengthen and confidence grows.

Hi, I'm Lily

Something about me

For me, movement has been the key towards self love and supreme acceptance of myself. In 2015, I moved to Austin and used my 20 years of experience as both an entertainer and an instructor to start Lily Shepard Moves. I am in a constant state of gratitude for being able to share my love of using dance, introspection,and community as a means to empower.

How can I help you?

We are built for love, success, pleasure, and pure magic yet so many of us walk around feeling undeserving… of love, of success, of excellence.  Your sense of self-worth should come from the knowledge that your inner wisdom is adequate to serve you, no matter what the situation. The body holds that wisdom. I help women access that wisdom in their bodies through movement.

"Lily is amazing and she really helped me unlock things that were holding me back from living my best life. In addition to the internal work, the dance and movement has helped me to feel more comfortable and in tune with my body than I ever have."

Between the end of my long term relationship and my move to Austin I began talking to a guy. Let’s call him Mr N.  I wasn’t really interested in a relationship, more just peeking my head out a little bit. He was in a Facebook group that I was active in that discussed issues facing…

Releasing the Idealistic Version and Confronting the Real

It’s not easy to part with the version of something you created in your head. I would argue that it’s even harder to acknowledge that you have created a scenario that your current reality is not quite living up to. This has been the hardest lesson for me to accept in my marriage. I married…
