Join Smita Khatri for a 1-hour movement experience combining dance and yoga. During the first half of the 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). During the 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. Please also bring a mask to wear throughout the class. Most importantly, bring yourself, as you are! This class is also offered virtually if you cannot attend in person. Please register here for the link.

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.
