BELLY DANCE INSTRUCTION WITH SEDONA
For thousands of years women have experienced the healing and transformative powers of Belly Dance. In my weekly PDX classes we work to build a strong technical foundation while also connecting to the sacred and ancient roots of this magnificent art. These wonderful classes provide a vitalizing holistic workout and offer you the chance to develop a creative outlet, embrace your sensuality, increase your embodied confidence and connect with other women in your community. Belly Dance provides a safe, organic and fun way to build supple strength and flexibility in both body and mind. While opening to the vast energetic benefits of the practice, we will also hold a strong emphasis on proper technique and alignment.
Through, repetition and drilling we will anchor the beautiful movements into our organic muscle memory. You are sure to leave each and every class a better dancer than you were when you walked in the door.
I strive to create a safe and positive learning environment where everyone feels comfortable. Whether you are just coming to class to get out of the house and into your body, or you have aspirations of being a professional Belly Dancer, I am dedicated and committed to being a positive and helpful guide on your personal BellyDance journey.
