Movement Classes

Om Namo is one of the few studios that offer movement classes in the traditions of dance, martial arts and yoga. Our instructors are masters in their respective fields, often coming from long lineages of training and experience. These classes perfectly complement a regular yoga practice. The best way to understand these classes is to experience them for yourself. Join us to explore and have fun!
