    Facilitator:  Freya

    Prerequisite: Either one Intro to Belly Dance course or previous training in another belly dance class. 

    Belly dancing is incredibly empowering. You will have fun while building confidence, strength & grace. In this intermediate class, we will build upon the foundational moves learned in the Intro class. Short combinations & choreography will be incorporated into technique and drills making it a great workout for your muscles and your mind. Choreography will become more complex as we begin to layer multiple moves into the dance or incorporate props such as veils, fan veils, canes, or finger cymbals. Props will be available to borrow in class.  For those who want their own, a limited number of props & hip scarves are available for purchase from the instructor. 

    Come in yoga pants, leggings or other attire that allows full range of motion. No baggy shirts, baggy pants or long skirts as it’s important for you and the instructor to see your body positions. Also, a scarf or shawl to tie around your hips is helpful to see your hip movements in the mirror.

    Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Tai Chi involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. This 8-week class has both physical and mental benefits. If done regularly, it improves muscle tone, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Many older people find that it boosts their energy, stamina, agility, sharpens their reflexes, and gives an overall sense of well-being.

    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/ stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Instructor:  Beth Campisi

    Due to Covid-19 social distancing recommendations, class size is limited to 10 and face masks are required.

    No drumming experience needed. All levels welcome…can even be done sitting down! 

    Cardio Drumming combines movement with the beat and rhythm of drums for a fun, high energy workout. It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, an exercise ball stand and rhythmic moves to create one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever do — you won’t want to stop.

    Cardio drumming will raise your heart rate to help burn those calories, improve your coordination and ability to focus, and help strengthen many muscle groups, including your core. Studies have shown that when people find workouts they enjoy and have fun with, they’re more likely to stick with their routine.

    Equipment needed: 65 cm exercise ball (limited supply available for purchase $15), a 5 gallon bucket to set ball on (limited supply available for purchase $5), and 5A basic drum sticks. 

    Please register at least two days prior to the session you would like to attend.
