Belly Dance is a form of movement that is ancient in origin & diverse in cultural influences. The dance has remained popular throughout time because of its benefits. These include the physical
aspects of strengthening, toning & tightening muscle groups, while
also developing flexibility & range of motion throughout the body.

The dance teaches graceful movement, improved posture & imparts empowerment as dancers work on body awareness & isolation of muscle groups. The dance focuses on specific elements of body movement corresponding to energy centers, chakras, encouraging
free flow of chi throughout the body.

To dance comfortably, wear yoga or dance appropriate clothes, soft slippers, socks or barefoot. Hip scarves & veils are provided by Teri.

Dance steps are simple, easy to follow, no dance background needed.

Expect to have much fun, get a serious workout & know that you are
following in your ancestors’ steps by celebrating the joy of movement!

108 Sun Salutations is most often practiced at the start of a new season to help your brain and body refocus and reset for what the universe has coming up for you. It's a way to exhaust your body so your divine energy can connect with its source. The repetition of the sun salutation 108 times constitutes a moving meditation unlike any other. You will find that the repetitive rhythm of this practice facilitates a deep dive into the powerful, unwavering connection between mind, body, and breath. Why 108 you ask

108 is the number of “Upanishads” comprising Indian philosophy’s “Vedic texts”.

108 letters: 54 honoring Shiva, the masculine energy, and 54 for Shakti, the feminine energy.

108 is the number of names for Shiva (a Hindu god).

108 is the number of names for Buddha.

108 is the Chinese number representing “man”.

108 is the number of beads on a Catholic rosary.

108 is the number of beads on a Tibetan “mala” (prayer beads, analogous to a rosary).

108 is twice the number “54”, which is the number of sounds in Sanskrit (sacred Indian language). 108 is six times the number “18”, which is a Jewish good luck number.

108 is twelve times the number 9, which is the number of movements linked to breath in a Sun Salutation.

108 is the number of Sutras in the Yoga Sutras.

The distance between the Earth and the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the sun.

The distance between the Earth and the Moon is 108 times the diameter of the moon.

According to traditional Chinese medicine there are 108 pressure points on the body, and the Tantric system believes 108 energy channels converge at the heart chakra.

In Vedic astrology there are 12 houses and 9 planets which multiply to equal 108.

The numbers themselves are considered to have meaning: 1 represents universal consciousness or higher truth, 0 represents emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice, and 8 represents infinity.
