~Tribal Yoga Dance~

~Tribal Yoga Dance~
with Amanda Porter and Leslie McLaughlin

Explore the connection between Hatha yoga and Tribal Style
Bellydance, through breathwork, asanas(postures) and dance
movement. Designed to develop mind-body awareness with emphasis on
the belly in a fun and comfortable setting. We will utilize yoga
postures to release the lower back and hip joints, build core
strength, and strengthen the upper back, which facilitates the
practice of basic tribal bellydance movement.

Tribal Style bellydance is a modern descendant of traditional
Oriental dance. Originating in San Francisco, it can be thought of
as a modern improvisational folk dance typically danced as a
group, using a subtle system of cues and core strength oriented

The fusion of Hatha yoga practice and Tribal Style movement is
beneficial for development of a strong posture, core strength, and
learning how to communicate in a group dance setting. If you liked
women's yoga, you'll love this workshop!
