Fusion Fit: Part 2

4 Weeks | 3 Sessions per week | 28 Videos | Int/Adv


Welcome to part 2 of your Fusion Fit Program! It's time to turn up the heat!

This program was made for two types of people:

1) 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!

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

The continuation of the Fusion Fit 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! 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. 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're 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, it's always best to check with your healthcare professional if you have any questions regarding your health before starting any fitness routine.

Now let's get strong!

Intermediate Pilates for Belly Dancers

This is a challenging beyond-beginner Pilates class designed just for bellydancers. In this workshop, we will practice exercises that target key muscle groups that are essential for bellydance technique as well as offer variations that help to balance the avid bellydancer’s body—addressing healthy spinal movement, range of motion, and offering pointers for injury prevention.

Cool Down for Length and Balance

This cool down will work on focus and awareness. It stabilizes the low back and lengthens the spine with some gentle forward bending and centers you to prepare for practice with some yoga inspired balance-oriented poses. This practice can also be used for a warm up. This spotlight is from Rachel's "Serpentine Scales: Pinball + Sugar Workshop".

Condition and Release

This 30 minute Conditioning and Releasing routine can be used to warm up the body before dancing or as a regular fitness routine. Each of the five exercises build strength, flexibility, and understanding in specific parts of the body that are directly applicable to your dance practice. By repeating these exercises a few times per week, you will become a stronger dancer quickly.
