WARRRIOR WOMEN LIKE ME ™
My name is Ariane Barnes.
I'm a performer and teacher of Advanced Performance and Yoga- Psychology.
I'm passionate about helping women stand tall and strong in their chosen field through the use of performance, psychology and diversity as a pedagogy for leadership.
WWLM™ was born out of the need to bring different women from different walks of life together, to benefit from expert coaching in the performance and wellness areas and enhance their experience of belonging, purpose and wellbeing in life.
At its core, the program focuses on developing and nurturing each woman's unique gifts and helping her breakthrough any behaviour that no longer serves in her life with an enhanced focus on body-mind connection and self-mastery.
True to our values as a company, we only use qualified, experienced, BIPOC & LGBTQ practitioners.
It's a direct pathway to kickstarting and maintaining diversity & equity in the workplace and holding space for everyone, making it an inclusive and transformative experience for all involved.
I can't wait to see the results- because you will make breakthroughs!

Considering getting in touch ?
Here are some things you might want to know...
We pride ourselves in embodying social justice, decolonisation & creating active change.
Here's some information to help you understand what that means in practice:
We prioritise long term relationships
Most of our artists work freelance and we rotate our practitioners regularly to promote access & equity in our ranks and keep our content fresh - when you commit to working with us over a longer period of time, we consider this an investment for everyone involved and automatically prioritise your wish to work with us. This also means we don't do any work that involves less than half a day's delivery.
We incorporate anti-racist training and anti-discrimination ethics into our class material
As an all WOC &/or LGBTQ team, we know what it's like to walk through the world and feel different and we are committed to making this journey easier for our community. We work in a trauma- informed capacity and all of our instructors embody our values of Truth, Compassion, Communication and Education. Our client relationships uphold and sustain these values.
This also ensures we can provide and hold safe space to the best of our ability at any given time.
We work collaboratively
We put a great deal of effort into making our experiences inclusive and responsive to your needs, to this end we get on really well with people that make it easy for us to get our message out there, making the transition from passive to active support. Working with us in an organised and collaborative way, means you actively promote equity and visibility for WOC in a way that works for everyone !
