8-ukers kurs starter med gratis prøvetime under våre gratisuker (om det er din første gang). Ellers mulig å ta drop in når som helst.


Designed for dancers & useful for everyone. Expect an amazing playlist that will take you to blissful realms!
Bring your friends & meet new friends! Welcome!

10-15 minutes of warm up + core & frame workout.
The remaining time we do thorough stretches (pain-free). During the stretches, Karina guides you explanations about them, and sometimes with efficient body-mind relaxation techniques (mini-meditations).

Flexibility and muscle mass/strength tends to diminish as we get older, but you can regain and maintain it. It’s much easier to do it in a group, with motivating teachings and music!

We are starting with a SPECIAL OFFER where everyone can pay student price!! More info further down.

Our program is designed to:

  • 1. Increase flexibility and joint range of motion, improving your dance and daily performance in tasks such as lifting children or packages or weight at the gym, bending to tie your shoes, maintaining balance on an icy sidewalk, zipping up a dress, reaching for something on the top shelf, hurrying to catch an appointment, etc.
  • 2. Enhance coordination and muscle control, as maintaining the full range-of-motion through your joints keeps you in better balance. This will help keep you mobile and less prone to injury from falls, especially as you get older.
  • 3. Improve circulation, bringing nourishment to tissues, getting rid of waste byproducts in the muscle tissue and reducing inflammation. Improved circulation can help shorten your recovery time in muscle injuries and can increase energy levels.
  • 4. Better your posture, keep your muscles from getting tight and minimize discomfort.
  • 5. Relieve stress, as stretching relaxes tense muscles that often accompany stress. Meditative stretching as taught in this class can help calm the mind, providing a mental break and giving your body a chance to recharge. It offers a greater sense of well-being and a more restful sleep.
  • 6. Avoid muscle soreness.
  • 7. Improve breathing.


«Many people think the core consists only of the Abdominals, but the core also includes your pelvic muscles, mid and lower back muscles, and even your hip muscles. All of these muscles work together to support your spine and skull. How Does Core Strength Benefit Your Body? Think of your core as a muscular corset that stabilizes your entire body, helping to give you a center of gravity whether you’re at rest or moving your limbs: Just as a ballerina uses her center of gravity to keep her balance as she spins across the floor, you draw upon your core strength whenever you walk, sit, exercise or perform pretty much any activity.» (Read more at


People who have suffered recently from an acute muscle strain, fractured bones or joint sprains should not join this class. Consult your doctor if you are not sure if it’s good for you.

Be kind to your muscles and they will be kind to you!
