Class Descriptions

Afrobeats

Africa: the Motherland. The African continent is rich in history, culture and knowledge with an incredible musical and dance heritage that has been inspiring and influencing countless artists around the world.

Afrobeats have swept the African continent and extended their influence across the globe. This dance style leaves room for self-expression and enables each individual to follow the beat of their own drum by using their unique ”body language” through spontaneous personal variations.

The essence of real, traditional African dance is indeed continual creation, and solo improvisations are a big part of the dance, enabling each member of the community to express his own life story or feelings through movement.

Everyone can dance to African music – just feel the music, express yourself and let yourself go. It’s also an incredibly fun way to get that full body workout!

Mindful Meditation

The constant chaos and noise in our daily lives makes it harder and harder for us to “unplug” and focus. In this class, you will have the opportunity to disconnect from it all and truly be in the present moment, non judgementally, by paying attention in a particular way.  

Through the use of controlled breathing, stretching, concentration and essential oils, we create a safe environment of tranquillity, peace and trust in which you will not only focus on the present moment with intent but also attain a higher state of mind.
