with our bodies.  Use the dance to create moving meditations as we experience the joyful expression and journey of self!

Fusion Dance For Fitness with Stefanie
These classes will focus on movement in dance to create personal workout routines.  Strength, balance and flexibility are
very important to a healthy body.  The dance helps to improve posture, release toxins from the body, strengthen and tone
large and small muscles in the body, raises self esteem levels, decreases stress levels, proper breath control is learned for
greater ease of movement, and also gives us a fun and creative outlet for fitness.

Belly Dancing through Pregnancy with Stefanie
Belly Dance has a therapeutic advantage for pregnant women in relieving pain, strengthening the internal muscles
involved in the birthing process, harmonizing the mother and child through prenatal interaction and instilling a sense of
joy and celebration throughout the prenatal and birthing process.  Dance through pregnancy enhances a sense of well
being, control and body image, increases stamina, reduces swelling and improves abdominal control and awareness.

Belly Dance: The Art of Movement with Stefanie
Focusing on Spiritual and Emotional Awareness through Dance
The dance allows us to open up to our most creative and beautiful spirit know as women.  DAY to day life challenges us
all and soon we begin to forget how powerful, strong, beautiful, intelligent, loved and sensuous we truly are.  The dance
will always bring us back to our hearts and put us into our bodies.  Learn how to connect spiritually in the dance, and
become more conscious daily.  In this class you will be introduced to continuous spinning or whirling.  Connect to spirit
on a deeper level and let go of control and the ego!  

Belly Dance - Healing through Movement and Breath
These are specialized classes to bring together a support system to help facilitate the healing process for women who
have been abused.  By creating a safe and loving environment we are able to become aware of our femininity and
sensuality as a women, learn how we are strong individuals with the power to go within ourselves to heal.  We are able to
create our own moving meditations to allow for optimal relaxation and healing.  The dance will take us on a journey  of
self-discovery through movement and breath.  Through movement we find restrictions in the body relating to the mind
and heart.  We gently begin to remove them with technique, posture, and breath.  Through this process we are able to
work through fear, anger and sadness so we can heal.

Pre-Natal Yoga Classes - Building Strength & Flexibility
Yoga helps to build strength and flexibility while maintaining a healthy emotional state as you go through the process of
pregnancy and childbirth.  Yoga is gentle and restorative and allows for movement throughout all trimesters of
pregnancy.  Yoga helps to alleviate many common complaints during pregnancy, and allows for a deeper connection to
your unborn child.

Yoga Classes - Individual Student Focus, Geared toward the Student
Classes are geared toward individual student goals.  Yoga helps build strength, flexibility, balance, emotional and mental
clarity.  Through these classes students will be guided gently through the process of understanding proper foundation and
alignment in poses and gain a clearer understanding of body awareness by using breath and proper technique.
