We had the good fortune of connecting with Sharieka Marie Hall and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sharieka Marie, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?

My absolute favorite quote comes from one of my favorite authors Dr. Maya Angelou:

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

I love it not only because it references butterflies, but it calls attention the the unseen battle that the caterpillar goes through.

No one is there with the caterpillar inside the cocoon. It might not look like there’s much going on but big changes are happening under the surface. Magic is happening.

This quote doesn’t gloss over the not so pretty parts that can accompany transformation. It speaks to the butterfly’s strengths & moments of perceived weakness. It recognizes both. It pulls inspiration and motivation from both.

For me it means we should celebrate ourselves throughout the highs & the lows because they combine to create great beauty. That’s how I look at my journey of entrepreneurship. 🦋

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?

My vision of Movement reaches all over because I have a lot of interests like dance gymnastics, art/crafts, group fitness, and weight training. It’s my mission to help others heals and reconnect with their bodies through Dance and other Somatic practices. I love to learn & then share what I find out.

Mental Health and Movement combine to form the core of my Inner Fitness company, Warrior Wellness Consulting.

We are an Empowerment & Support Service that helps you to accomplish all your Health, Wellness, and Fitness goals. We help you create balance between your work & home-life without losing sight of your self care through dance, yoga, & meditation.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

If my best friend were visiting for a week I would take them to a few of my favorite parks. Tom Bass being one of them for nature walks & nature photography. We would swing by these places for Dance, Step & Yoga classes. Some of the offer virtual options as well so we’re covered if we don’t want to leave the house.

Urban Souls – Monday nights with Myra & Guy where I learn so much! I’m going to make one of the Yoga in the 5th classes soon!

Inner Me – I love the mirrors in the studio!

Phat Body Sports Training & Nutrition for weight training with John.

Fenixx Fitness – the music played during classes is fire!

Houston Met – Modern dance class with Brittany was my favorite so far. Her playlist for warmups was everything!

Institute of Contemporary Dance: I’ve tried the Adult Ballet & Afro Dance classes

The Brown Girl Yoga Tribe

Veterans Yoga Project

Black Swan Yoga

Houston Texans YMCA

Group classes are apart of my love language & I always find the best classes to try! Most of my friends are instructors so that’s a plus!

We’d definitely be dancing at the best spot in Houston, the most exclusive….. where the Magic happens! My House in front of my Butterfly wall! LOL

They could expect most of the meals to be at my house because everyone who knows me knows that I love having people to cook for. All made with Love ❤️

If we chose to go out then it would be some place like Trendy Vegan. The food is really good for anyone looking to make that lifestyle change. The atmosphere is open and laid back.

Red Wagon because I’ve loved those slushees they makes since I was a child! Strawberry Cheesecake is my favorite. Extra Cream always lol.

Oh & the Creative Moms Connect group I’m apart of had lunch at Mo Better Brews!  I took so much extra food home because the menu selection was that appetizing.  The staff there is so personable and welcoming so there’s extra incentive for swinging  by.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?

To anyone who ever said a prayer for me, voted for me in a contest, came to any of my classes, or supported me in any way…

Thank You! Thank You! Thank you!
