RESTORATIVE YOGA NEW YEAR'S SERIES

We remind the body and mind how to fully relax into 2022 in this four-class restorative yoga series. As important as it is to be active, it is equally as important to rest and reset. This restorative class begins with journaling and offers downregulating sequencing in a cozy warm room to help our students balance out the business of the holidays. Props and optional hands-on assists are provided to help students feel safe and fully supported in this nurturing practice.
Each asana (posture) is held for 5-10 minutes, with 4-6 poses offered throughout each class. Unlike many active classes, restorative yoga focuses less on verbal instruction and places more emphasis on noticing sensations within the body. Students will "drop in" to their bodies as the parasympathetic nervous system allows for full relaxation. Like a conscious power nap for the soul!
Calm the agitations of the mind, elevate your mood, and mitigate the negative effects of stress on Sundays in January, starting 1/9.

 

BALLET 

These classes focus on barre work, proper technique and alignment, and cater to the ballerina in you! Expect explanations of French ballet terminology, demonstrations, and repetition of proper technique. Courses offered in multi-week series.

Intro to Ballet: For dancers with no or minimal experience. A great way to learn about the art of ballet.

Beginner/Early Intermediate Ballet: For the advanced beginner ready to be challenged.
Intermediate/Adv: Take your dancing up a notch with a broader movement vocabulary and more complex combinations, as well as ankle strengthening and pointe work, if applicable.

 

CONTEMPORARY/MODERN
An eclectic mix of contemporary, modern, and post-modern styles, students will experience some elements of ballet, jazz, countertechnique, flying low, and floor flow elements, depending on the series’ focus and the instructor’s personal training background. Expect a thorough warm up, technical exercises, traveling combinations, and emotive choreography aimed to help dancers move bigger, more fluidly and more spatially, and with strength and flexibility.


INTRO TO HIP HOP
Learn popular dance moves incorporated into original choreography. Class includes a guided warm up, isolations, hard-hitting exercises, and footwork. Build stamina while executing beginner-friendly choreography set to a wide range of hip hop & r&b music. A guaranteed good time with great combos you can feel confident dancing!
