A dance + yoga class for all adults either in person or online.

Join Smita Khatri for a 1-hour movement experience combining dance and yoga. First half of class: feel your spirits lift as we dance (simple steps, low impact) to joyful, inspiring, and soothing music selections from around the world. Each class will include some interaction and connection with one another through music and dance (while maintaining appropriate distance). Second half of class: tune in more deeply to the body and breath with slow and gentle somatic-based yoga sequences. This class is suitable for all levels, and includes standing as well as getting up and down from the floor. Please bring a yoga mat, a towel or small blanket, and 2 blocks if you have them. Most importantly, bring yourself, as you are!

Smita Khatri has taught dance since 2007, and yoga since 2016, for various populations and settings — schools and senior centers, jails and hospitals, festivals and community events, as well as fitness centers and retreat centers in the U.S. and abroad. Smita’s teaching is influenced by a mixture of modalities, ranging from Indian folk dance and Nia dance, to Yin Yoga and gentle somatic-based Yoga. Currently, she is taking graduate-level courses in dance/movement therapy.

The in-person class is limited to 15 participants. All participants attending in person, regardless of vaccine status, must wear masks throughout the program.
