What we're about

This is a non-religious meetup that welcomes people of all faiths, orientations and beliefs. Classes are lead by a certified wellness coach and meditation instructor with over 30 years of experience.

In our group, we practice simple stress reduction techniques, mindfulness, meditation and mindful communication, all of which can help improve your daily life and possibly avoid some health and personal problems.

We will also run practices for couples, where partners will be able to release stress, restore and deepen the emotional, mental and spiritual connection. You will learn simple couple's meditations and ways to dissipate tension, conflict and emotional strain. These tools help to prevent and resolve arguments in a mindful, respectful way and build a more harmonious relationship.

Accessible to most, it can be as mild or as strenuous as you choose, but it’s always equally beautiful and feminine. It never gets old or boring, because it’s a constant creative process. It keeps challenging you physically, and yes, mentally as well! Bellydance is also an amazing form of therapy, a wonderful release of stress and tension. It empowers and encourages a positive body image. It fulfills your emotional need for feeling confident and beautiful, both inside and out. As a relatively “young” style, Tribal Fusion Bellydance is dogma-free and allows for a possibility of exploring uncharted territories through creating your personal, unique style. Overall, Bellydance is one of the most perfect ways to invest your time that will reward you richly on all levels of your being: physical, emotional, mental. In our hectic and disconnected life Bellydance gives you a chance to explore the realm of your deeper self, and maybe find your inner goddess, waiting to be awakened. *Make sure you allow 1 - 1.5 hours AFTER a large meal before you come to class* WHAT TO BRING/WEAR (http://www.meetup.com/Belly-Dance-Fitness/pages/What_to_bring_to_the_class%3F/)
