This is a special class!  We dance outdoors enjoying fresh air, the delightful fragrances and beauty of the setting.  If you have ever wanted to dance among the trees, express your appreciation for nature in movement or let the souls of your feet connect to the rhythm of the earth, this is your time!

Please bring water bottle and a hat is advised.  Also a picnic blanket/towel/yoga mat for our Floorplay.  I find the larger the better!

We meet in the parkland between Ferncroft Avenue and Malvern Road. Easy free parking available on both streets. Or Darling Train Station just 10 minutes walk away.

This class precedes a 11.00am T’ai Chi class. Why not give this slow flowing class a go as well?  Becomes a totally energising and nourishing morning of self-awareness, sensation and flow!

From May to December, this class moves indoors.  This allows us to continue benefitting from our practice all year round.
