Belly Dance Fitness

Bellydance Fitness with Kayla Mondays at 6pm at Studio Sway-2.jpg

This belly dancing class is unlike others you may have tried (and if you’ve never tried it, now’s the time!). Both a workout and instruction, we take time to review fundamental belly dance movements and foundations and use what we’ve learned in dance fitness routines that will leave you sweaty. We use an eclectic playlist including popular, world, electronic, and classical Egyptian music. Beginners and advanced dancers are welcome!

Please call or text Kayla at 505-550-2635 with questions, or email


Ecstatic Dance ABQ

with Elizabeth Cervantes.jpg

Ecstatic dance is a spontaneous, expressive, and meditative movement practice. It occurs in a safe and non-judgmental environment where creative possibilities are infinite, and freedom and joy preside. Dancers move barefooted and without verbal interaction. The facilitator holds sacred space by setting a focus, offering a poem, or other suggestions, and with sophisticated music sequences crafted to evoke spiritual connection in personal movement. No experience is needed—just a willingness to move and be moved. The eclectic music gradually builds to a high energy level then winds down to a meditative, relaxing finish. Be prepared to sweat. The ecstatic dance community is a tribe that enjoys dancing and growing together. Dance the way your body wants to—without choreography or judgement, and discover the innate body wisdom you possess. All are welcome. For more information, contact Elizabeth Cervantes, founder (2009) and facilitator of Ecstatic Dance Albuquerque at or visit the Ecstatic Dance ABQ Facebook page.

The Nia Technique™ draws inspiration from dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts for a workout that is challenging and stimulating, yet easy to follow. Nia students improve strength, balance, cardiovascular stamina, flexibility, and joint mobility. Students are encouraged to pay attention to their sensations; experience the joy of movement; and fall in love with being in their bodies.

A typical Nia class includes some elements of free dance in which students are encouraged to move however they please. Nia offers us the opportunity to explore, play, and get sweaty. The hour spent in class is our time to recharge, connect, let loose, and get fit.

We dance in bare feet to build strength and awareness from the ground up.

Each Nia teacher sets their own pricing for drop ins and class cards. 

Please contact teachers individually for their rates.


Spiral Path Breathwork

Breathwork 8_edited_edited.jpg


Think of yourself as a beautiful and brightly lit room. You are naturally filled with Light and Love. Sometimes when we shut the curtains, consciously or unconsciously, we feel like we are full of darkness and heaviness.

Breathwork can help support you in opening those curtains to let the Light back in. The Light that is ALWAYS there. The Light that you ALWAYS ARE.

Breathwork is a conscious, circular, mouth to belly breathing technique that gently yet powerfully stimulates the sympathetic nervous system. In doing this, the breath can help you access and release repressed and suppressed feelings and emotions including powerlessness, unworthiness, fear, anger, grief, resentment, jealousy, self-loathing, insecurity, and even repressed joy, that are being held in the body. The dense feelings and emotions that cause you to feel like your curtains are tightly shut!


When you begin to feel and release heavy and stagnant energy, more flow naturally occurs:

More Flow of Self Love

More Flow of Abundance

More Flow of Inspiration

More Flow of Physical, Mental, and Emotional Health and Wellbeing

More Flow of Authenticity

More Flow of Awareness to your Never Ending Connection to Source
