Description

*WOMEN ONLY No excuses for missing a workout or having "Achy Travel Body" when you stay with a Certified Fitness & Massage Professional! Book a workout and a massage with me during your stay to help you keep up with those resolutions you just made!

Earthy Crunchy, Yet Refined (lol)!

Lots of color, culture and positive, healing vibes to be found in the home of a Holistic Health Professional.

You will be staying in a small cozy serene quiet room.

You share a bathroom .

If you need more room for your party there is a rather lovely New Ikea Daybed available to sleep on but its in the living room so whoever sleeps there gives up privacy/a door that closes.

For a reduced additional fee you may book a one-on-one-yoga, TRX, kettlebell or massage therapy/reflexology session with me.

I'm a Naturopathic Doctor/Massage professional/Fitness Instructor with 25+ years experience

Imagine coming back after a long day in the city to a personalized stretch or interval workout, a steam and a massage therapy session! Patchouli oil included (just kidding) there's even sage if you want to smudge.

All of the musical instruments in the home are very fragile and therefore PRIVATE. We ask that guests not touch them. Thank you.

The kitchen pots/pans/dishes, books, washer & dryer & DVD's are available for your enjoyment as long as everything is immediately and respectfully restored to it's original condition/placement when you are done.

Abuse of this privilege will result in the loss of said privileges for the remainder of your stay as well as repair or replacement of the item damaged.

If you do not completely agree with this policy please refrain from using anything not in your room.

Namaste'

My schedule can be quite full however If I'm around I'll interact to YOUR comfort level.

I'm available via phone or text if you have questions or need something unless I'm giving a service in which case I'll get back to you ASAP.

You'll have access to our Guest Book which will provide you with maps, directions to the various shopping and dining options, bus and rail schedules & menus for our nearby places to eat etc.

"Hi & Bye" or engaging in pleasant longer conversations are both perfectly acceptable if I'm available.

This is a very conveniently located Home.

You'll be 2 blocks from the Subway/Train/West Lake Marta station which gets you to Phillips Arena/CNN Center/Downtown Atlanta, Martin Luther King Jr Center or Downtown Decatur in 5-15 minutes for $2.50.

This is awesome news, especially during rush hour!

No car necessary

The bus which takes you to the heart of Downtown/5 Points stops at the front door taking you in minutes to Atlanta's hub of shopping and dining! Again for $2.50

The following are 1 mile away...

Walmart, Family Dollar, The Pizza Bistro, The Mardi Gras Cajun/Creole cafe, The Blue Sea Restaurant (halal food , best.bean.pie.ever.) & The famous line-out-the-door-all-night Mr. Everything (please don't worry I have antacids!) barber shops, nail salons, the copy center, etc.

You'll also be 1 block from a very large lovely park with a running track, tennis courts(I have rackets & balls you may borrow), a public pool (open spring & summer) and basketball courts. Or just grab a bench and watch the children play.

Getting around is easy! You'll be 1 block from the train, 3 blocks to major freeway (I-20 & MLK) 1 mile to shopping and restaurants. (Whole Foods & several restaurants will deliver to my address)

*We use scents, incense & aromatherapy here. Please take that into consideration if you have sensitivities/allergies to fragrances or smudge. It's possible you will be most comfortable elsewhere*

Special note to lady travelers about this neighborhood.

Myself and several women co-workers have resided in this area trouble free for years

In the interest of full disclosure I do have to tell you about the time last week when the police were here.

The 2 elder gentleman next door got into an argument over who was cheating at checkers.

His blood pressure shot up and we had to call the paramedics. The police came too.
No arrests were made.

So if you cheat at checkers then yes, the police may come but other than that I wouldn't worry too much.

That said this is an area with a lot of students and culture.

If you dislike either, please stay elsewhere

We request that all guests have fully verified profiles with photos etc. before requesting a stay/room.


House Rules

*Women Only* No pets, No Shoes on in the house (I provide a basket of new black socks for wearing in the house if you have no slippers ), No Cigarette or Cigar smoking in the house. Please use the wireless headphones provided for TV/Movie viewing if anyone else is on the premises. I do work from home so if people and laughter is troublesome to you may be more comfortable elsewhere.

Basic hygiene, respect and responsible righteous adult Homo Sapien conduct please. Thank you.

The experience at DancingLion's house was amazing! She is a kind and down to earth woman who made sure that I felt comfortable, knew where everything was and how to contact her. I was so grateful for the warm and welcoming surroundings. I enjoyed the treasure of her house. Every pillow, book and piece of art invited me to sit for a moment and relax. I enjoyed it so much, it was like walking into a painting. Thank you DancingLion for the conversation and the workout! I am sure I'll be back.

I stayed with DancingLion for a month while I got back to work after a long illness. She has a warm, nurturing energy which is exactly what I needed. Her home is colorful, cozy and full of love. She asked many times if there was anything else she could do to make my stay more wonderful. Her massages are awesome! Make sure you take advantage of her discount offering! There's easy access to Interstate 20 which gets you quickly to 75/85 and all of the Atlanta gems. A short 15 minute walk gets you to the beautiful, historic Westview Cemetary (don't miss the mausoleum!). A wonderful, quiet place for a walk.
