**Mindful Movement: A Nourishing Approach to a Strong Practice**

We will approach our dance practice with awareness placed on our mind-body connection. Mindfulness will be our guide through our practice of meditation, moving meditation, conditioning exercises, technique and drills/combos. Alongside this physical practice; grounding techniques, mind body awareness exercises(mindfulness), a focused eye and more inward understanding, will be emphasized in order to approach your dance practice with more awareness, commitment and authenticity. Moving meditations, technique and drills will be used to offer a more grounding, spacious, effective class and practice. Join Ariellah in a class that offers much self-care, grounding, and tuning in to your body and mind, whilst effectively approaching and working on your conditioning and technique. This workshop is excellent for any dancer who wants to delve deeply into their dance practice with more of a full mind and body approach. Come out of this workshop feeling calm, reinvigorated, accomplished and nourished!

Ariellah studied classical ballet with the Royal Academy of Dance of London for twelve years, beginning at age three. After a four-year break from dance that included two years in the Peace Corps, living and working in Africa's Ivory Coast, she returned to the United States eager to learn the dance of her Moroccan ancestry.

Ariellah is an international performer and instructor of modern fusion belly dance. She has studied and performed belly dance since 2001. Ariellah began her belly dance training with Janine Ryle of Danse Mahgreb and as a founding member of The Indigo with Rachel Brice. In 2009, Ariellah began training in classical Indian Odissi dance, studying in India at the Shakti School of Dance. Her style infuses many genres of belly dance, all with a modern dark flavour that is uniquely her own. She is featured on many DVDs, including the first of its kind "Gothic BellyDance" DVD and her first instructional DVD, "Contemporary BellyDance and Yoga Conditioning" and she also won first place in Siren's Insanity belly dance competition in 2004. She is considered a pioneer in the innovative new genre of Fusion Belly Dance and is known for her strong technique, precision of movements and her artistry. Her dance manifests what is deep in her heart and expresses her own experience and perceptions of this wondrous, beautiful and tragic thing called life. www.ariellah.com
