Yoga is far more than contorting your body into pretzel like poses or chanting with crystals. Yes, there are elements of both throughout Yoga. However at Momentum Dance we are bringing a practice of Yoga that benefits dancers and compliments our dance classes for overall wellbeing and enhanced physical performance. This is especially important for our performers, young and old! Yoga has helped people lose weight, overcome fears, conquer bad habits, and develop better concentration. Others feel improved self awareness, a deeper sense of wellbeing, greater self- acceptance, enhanced relationships, developed compassion, and an overall sensation of being at peace.
Dance can be brutal on the body at times, especially as we age. Many dancers over the age of 30 complain of achy joints and increased injuries from weekly dance practice. The best way to prevent injury and care for your body is to pair weekly dance with regular yoga practice. Your body is the vessel that allows you to express the art of dance on stage. You only get one, so take care of it! Practice a balanced healthy lifestyle and nourish your body with regular yoga practice. Momentum Dance Company currently offers three weekly classes to help you incorporate Yoga practice through your MDC membership.
