This is an intermediate yoga and Pilates flow class designed for students who have some prior experience with yoga and Pilates. This well-balanced practice was designed with the dancer in mind, so you’ll be getting a full-body stretch and strengthen class which also focuses on backward bending and balance, as well as several twists and side bends to improve your figure 8’s, chest circles, and sidewinder. Grab a yoga block, a mat, a towel, and some water.
Belly Dance Flow Drills have been created for the dedicated dancer as a means to drill almost all dance movements for a well-rounded daily practice. In this workshop Zoe will encourage a balance of strength, flexibility, and Fusion technique, utilizing sun salutations, Pilates, and good old fashioned belly dance. This practice will make you sweat, so drink lots of water, and you'll need a yoga mat and a towel.
Get ready to get your heart rate up and have some fun in this challenging cardio belly dance class. Class is divided into two parts, beginning to intermediate dance drills with mini Fusion combos, sandwiched between short bursts of more traditional fitness conditioning.
This is a short lecture highlighting some of the basic information and history behind Pilates, the creator, the form itself, and why its an excellent practice to compliment belly dance. This spotlight is from Ashley's "Basic Full Body Pilates Workout" class.
This belly dance workshop is designed to get you moving & sweating with three Fusion combinations that contain a variety of belly dance moves fused with steps from other styles of dance, including hula and jazz. Do all three combinations for a complete workout or use one at a time to get your heart rate up before a dance class.
This belly dance workshop is a 3-part workout focusing on the upper body. Class will begin with a 20-minute segment focusing on upper body strengthening, followed by a 20-minute dance drill segment using upper body isolations and Fusion movements, and ending with a 20-minute upper body flexibility stretching segment.
This workshop is a 3-part workout focusing on the torso. Class will begin with a Pilates and fitness routine designed to strengthen the major muscles of the trunk of the body: the upper and lower back, abdominals, and pectorals. Part two of this class is a 20-minute drill sequence focusing on belly dance movements of the torso. Part three focuses on spinal flexibility, side bends, and twists to increase flexibility and range of motion in the torso.
Get your daily dose! The daily dose is a short, efficient practice that has what you need to keep your belly dance technique strong, even if you have a crazy schedule: yoga, drills, a short phrase combination, a focus, and a cool down. This daily dose is part of the Rachel's Fusion "Arabic Shimmy" Series.
This belly dance warm up emphasizes oppositional movement to increase muscular control and core stabilization. The body is prepared to move with quick aerobic steps then transitions into exercises that target the abdominal muscles, challenging endurance and increasing strength. This sequence is great for developing core strength, useful for all types of belly dance movement, and results in abdominal awareness and definition. This spotlight is from Colette's "Beginning ATS®: Class #6".
This challenging yoga practice focuses on developing strength and flexibility in the muscles on either side of the spine, and will, over time, contribute to a healthier standing backward bend, known as the Layback. This spotlight is from Rachel's Tribal Fusion Belly Dance workshop: "Laybacks, Drops, Zippers & Floorwork".
This yoga cool down will bring you from a sweaty, heart-pounding state to a relaxed, loose, open and focused presence. You can practice this after a dance practice, or a long day of work. This belly dance spotlight is from Rachel's Tribal Fusion workshop: "Sinuous and Smoky Phrases".
Collapsable Sigil is a yoga based sport flow warm up to get your heart rate up and keep flexibility in your practice. This belly dance spotlight is from Amy's "Full Lesson 3, Unmata's Level 1 Slow ITS: Floreo Turn, Rib Circles, and Arm Dip" class.
