Morning Yoga Sessions

FREE Yoga Class - Please come to the Ballroom 10 minutes before class and find a spot.

The morning yoga sessions at ABDC will utilize Hatha Yoga to deepen the dancer's connection to the body and the breath and to gently stretch the muscles used in bellydance. Saturday we will explore alignment and heart opening stretches to open our hearts to the joy that is to follow in our dance class sessions. Sunday brings a focus on hip and shoulder opening~gently stretching the muscles that we have worked during the weekend.
