Treat yourself to one and a half hours of stretching and relaxation for your body and mind. Classes begin with a half hour of movement in which we work up our heart rate and stretch our body so it is ready to relax. Then enjoy a number of restorative yoga postures that help your mind and body relax. Various postures can relieve headaches, aid digestion, deepen your breathing, renew your feet and legs, etc. So come for some R & R to rest and renew!

Calling all dancers! Join us at Hip Circle Studio for the return of Malik's Improv Hafla! $10 to spectate supportively, $5 if you dance. Here's the thing - dancers won't know what they're performing to until it's their turn to dance! Yep - total luck of the draw/luck of the shuffle! The musical genres will be varied, so you really could be dancing to almost anything!
This awesome experience is open to ALL bellydancers & spectators, of all genders, with the only requirement being that you come with the intention of supporting ALL the performers.
Come explore with us!
