This class will blend basic principles of contemporary modern dance technique with improvisation, emphasizing the capacity for ease, freedom and dynamic power within the human body.  Some of the concepts we will explore will include:  stability and mobility of the pelvis and joints; clarity of form, line and direction in the body and space, and; gravity, momentum, natural alignment and core activation for the integration of the body as a whole.  Breath work and imagery will heighten awareness and sensitivity.  Enjoy moving and being in a safe environment geared toward personal discovery and FUN!

Yoga and Beyond is a blend of yoga, contemplative dance, somatic movement and meditation designed to help us release unhealthy habits, feel more joy in the moment, and experience the gentle power of our innate life force. We will incorporate invigorating yet gentle yoga asanas (postures) with organic movement sequences geared toward creating ease of motion, core power, integration and balance. Mindfulness meditation will focus and soften the mind. Enjoy oving and being in a friendly and non-competitive environment. No experience is necessary.
