What is Dance Yoga?

Dance yoga is a style of practice that combines dance movement with yoga postures. Traditional yoga asanas are performed along with music using fluid, expressive movement. Paired with world music, chanting, or drums, dance yoga offers a fun way to explore yoga with movement and creativity.


A typical dance yoga class may include some type of rhythmic music, chanting, affirmations, and freedom of physical expression. Dance yoga usually involves gentle, beginner-friendly yoga poses, and it can be an accessible way of experiencing yoga for the first time, or an effective method for adding creativity to your practice. Here are a few things you should know about dance yoga.
