DAN - 248
Yoga for Dancers

(varied course cr.) - Session(s): Varies, Contact Department Head | Course Offered

This course provides a thorough foundation in the physical, breathing and mindfulness practices of yoga as a means to augment and enrich dance training. Utilizing yoga postures and vinyasa flow, dancers will train their bodies in a balanced way, thus gaining muscular strength and flexibility in areas of the body under-addressed in conventional dance training. This enables fully integrated movement, increases range of motion and helps prevent injury. Through mindfulness practices, the dancer develops mental concentration needed for class, rehearsal and stage performance. Prerequisite: Dance experience required.
