Welcome to The Dance

Group yoga classes and private sessions in Matthews and Charlotte

Debi"The philosophy that supports my practice, as well as my teaching, is one that serves and enhances the beauty that is inherent in each of us. It is my intention to offer the gift of yoga in a nurturing, non-competitive environment.

Yoga is for every body. Whether you are 8 months or 80 years, tall and thin or short and more amply built, yoga has extended an open invitation to all."

- Debi Hawkins-McLendon, E-RYT®

Why does Shiva dance?  For the sheer delight of it!

Shiva Nataraja
The image of The Lord of the Dance (Nataraja) invites us to the ananda-tandava, the dance of bliss. He reminds us that joy is our true nature, concealed for us through his play.
The practice of yoga is a celebration of embodied existence. So everybody dance now!
