TUESDAYS 8:10pm – 9:30pm

   *OPEN LEVEL* Tribal Fusion Belly Dance: Salt City Studio  1321 East 3300 South SLC, UT 84106 

$15 DROP IN’S ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS SERIES. For this series I am excited to focus on dancing to the vibrant, colorful, intoxicating rhythms of Balkan music. Get ready to have a full blown fast paced, sweaty dance party … every Tuesday night 8:10-9:30pm

 
There will be theory, technique, choreography and combinations to learn in this series. Yet the real focus is breaking out of the belly dance box, and your own self made cage. This series is about learning the full range of wing span and working with it. Rewrite your wild side. Expect to get your yoga warm up and cool down in a highly tantric format. Designed to wake the sleeping SHAKTI – prana that may be dormant in your body. It is almost spring. Consider this your temple body spring cleaning.
 
This series is going to be as bold as brass, just like the horns in the music. The image of letting the leopard off the leash comes to mind. One of my favorite genres of music to belly dance to, is Balkan. It’s a raw, powerful grounding style of music. I don’t know about you, but I sure can always use a practice that helps me cultivate my personal power though movement medicine. CD’s available upon request for $5.

unnamed-11SUNDAYS 11:45 AM  -1PM *Core & Restore

21st Yoga 2065 E. 2100 S. SLC UT. 

A fine tuning class for body, mind and spirit.  This class  begins on the floor, grounding and connecting to earth.  Slowing the internal dialog and  connecting to center.  Clearing the mind for mental clarity is the key to this practice.  We then move into a slow meditative flow still grounding physical and mental energetics.  Next, we move into the heat of our center.  Stoking the fires of the core through breath and asana to deeply burn off impurities and toxins. Experiencing the true heat of our center and opening up to the next level of self.  At this point we experience apex poses that will challenge you and move you forward mentally and physically.  It is after this point, the body in now ready to slip into a deep restorative  process.  Coming out of the transformative fires, we slowly slip into the cool pools of  restore. The body can now deeply repair after being heated up to a level of opening ing.  The muscle and fascia can now releases around the structures we create with the bolsters, blocks, blankets and straps.  These  specific yoga props are essential to this format (feel free to bring a towel to this class).  Taking  “the back pack of stress” off the body,  the mind and muscle can now let go of what it is holding.   It is in the surrender to the self, where we find the deepest repair for mind, body and spirit.  I hope you will enjoy this format as much as I have enjoyed creating it.

unnamedSUNDAYS 4pm – 5:15pm Aroma * Restore

21st Yoga 2065 E. 2100 S. SLC UT. 

Rebuild, reboot, restore, revitalize. The main philosophy of Restorative Yoga is that by relaxing in poses, with the aid of props, without strain or pain, we can achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation.  Adding aroma therapy to the mix takes us to a whole new level or restoration and relaxation.  Trisha uses only the best of organic  blends that she creates herself for this class.

Our parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated when we relax into poses, which promotes a relaxation response and reduces stress in our bodies. The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for slowing your heart rate and breath and increasing blood flow to your vital organs, among other things.

The goal is to combat the physical and mental effects of everyday stress and ease common ailments such as headaches, backaches, anxiety, and insomnia with the use of restful poses and deep breathing techniques. EVERYONE benefits greatly form a restorative practice.
