>> Yoga for Belly Dance Walk-In & Workout Classes:

Did you know that many belly dancers are also yoga students? There are two main reasons for this.

Physically, the control over ones body gained from Yoga exercises helps belly dancers perform their moves. Isolation and stretching are common to both art forms, and consequently many belly dance teachers use Yoga for warm-up exercises.
Mentally, belly dancers benefit from the mental exercises that Yoga provides to improve ones focus when needed. (Source: Connections: Yoga and Belly Dance by Narah. www.gildedserpent. com/art46/narahyogabd.htm)

The Yoga for Belly Dancers class is designed for those new to yoga and/or belly dance.
