Fusion Fit: Part 1

4 Weeks | 3 Sessions per week | 22 Videos | Int/Adv


This program was made for two types of people:

1) Dancers - Keeping your body in tip top shape with yoga, Pilates, and more traditional fitness routines will support all aspects of your dance! The classes in this program were developed with a dancer's body in mind.

2) Fitness buffs - You actually don't have to be a belly dancer to benefit from Datura Online classes. Anyone can benefit from a good work out!

Made with tight schedules in mind, we'll give you everything you need in an hour or less per session, for just three days a week. This program will delve into our full collection of yoga, Pilates, strength training, and cardio classes to keep you strong and flexible, no matter what your ultimate fitness goals may be! We've created these three day practices as our personal recommendation for just one example of a healthy lifestyle practice, but feel free to use the shorter sessions on their own if you only have time for one short tune up per week. It's designed to be repeated, so if you love how you feel after four weeks, keep on trucking. We'll be here for ya!

During the week the program switches between full classes with one instructor and our special mix and match sessions where we've combined segments of classes from different teachers that compliment each other well to achieve the specific theme of each session.

Please note: This program is designed for people with previous yoga and Pilates experience. Want a test to see if the level of the program is right for you? We highly recommend taking Ashley Lopez's Basic Yoga and Beginning Pilates workshops. If you are comfortable with the level of those classes then full steam ahead. If you find them a bit challenging at this time, no worries. Just stick with these workshops for a few weeks before trying this intermediate program.

And remember, check with your healthcare professional if you have any questions regarding your health before starting any fitness routine.

Now let's get strong!
