IPDH and CDC guidelines about face masks will be observed.
Beginner–Intermediate. No previous dance experience required. Great for all fitness levels — even those with physical limitations. (Contact Freya prior to class to discuss specific situation.)
These short summer belly dance classes are perfect for beginners. Each session we will work on 2-3 combos that will introduce you to new moves and new props such as veil, finger cymbals & sword. These classes do not build upon each other so if you miss a class or a whole session, you won't fall behind. And, at the end of the summer, you can take your favorite combos and combine them to create your very own choreography.
Suggested equipment: yoga mat, close-fitting attire that allows full range of motion (for you and the instructor to see your body positions), a scarf or shawl to tie around your hips (to see your hip movements in the mirror). Hip scarves available for purchase on Amazon and other online vendors.
Register by 8/29 or 2 days before a single session.
Sign-up for the entire course or a single class.

All Levels. Adaptive Yoga is a particularly effective practice and can have therapeutic benefits for those recovering from, or living with injury, illness or disease. This specialty recorded yoga class blends chair yoga, restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, Pranayama (breath work), and guided meditation techniques combined in such a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle, yet effective.
