In this class we will fuse Yoga Asana and Belly Dance! Both the art of Yoga and Belly Dance are extremely healing, empowering and freeing for women of all ages. Each week we will focus on a Divine Feminine aspect or Journey and weave that concept into our class. Mantra work may also be included from time to time. This class is for goddesses only (Sorry fellas). Ladies, please feel free to wear hip sashes/hip scarves, fun flowy clothes, or to just come as you are and SHAKE IT, Sister! Class is suitable for all levels to join together to have fun!
