Precisely placed limbs pervade Sangha Space's welcoming schedule of evening classes, featuring the flowing grace of group yoga practice and the staccato steps of dance sessions. Enlisting the stretching knowledge of two attentive instructors, yoga classes accommodate students of all skill levels and abilities. Teachers help attendees improve overall well-being as they pursue their own personal-fitness goals with a combination of individualized instruction and salient investment advice.
Elucidating the mysterious art of the tango, introductory Argentine tango courses empower feet with the confidence to master basic dance steps, tango's five principles of connection, and advanced Twister strategy. The course takes place at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings over 10 consecutive weeks, and no sessions require students to tote along a partner. With the aural backup of assorted musical stylings, West Coast swing courses covers fundamentals for beginners, experienced dancers, and spies for jealous East Coast swing studios. The 60-minute lessons meet at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings and also release students from the burden of bringing a partner and memorizing the studio's secret handshake.
The crew at Sangha Space connect students to each other and the community through the art of movement. As the instructors lead classes, lively rhythms, bluesy swing tunes, and the names of ancient yoga poses echo throughout the spacious dance hall, bouncing off the exposed beams on the vaulted ceilings and ricocheting into a welcoming fireplace. Visitors peering over the second-story balcony may spy Lori Coyle and her husband Eran Magen demonstrating the passionate steps of the Argentine tango that they've been perfecting since the night they met. Sangha's dance workshops and classes don’t require a partner, and regular social events let students practice new moves, make new friends, and wear down the dangerously sharp point of their new dancing heels. In addition to other dance and cultural classes led by visiting teachers, yoga instructors Pamela and Emily stop by several times a week to conduct yoga sessions focused on proper movement and form for beginner or advanced practitioners. They supplement their practical knowledge of body mechanics with spiritual advice shared through metaphors connected to each yoga technique.
