" When your body, mind and soul are healthy and harmonious, you will bring health and harmony to those around you and health and harmony to the world - not by withdrawing from the world but by being a healthy living organ of the body of humanity." - B.K.S. Iyengar
Who we are...
The Yoga Garden Dancers are a group of 10 dancers and 3-5 musicians who practice yoga and dance and create original choreography. We have been performing together since 1993. Our presentation is energetic, humorous and acrobatic while remaining true to the spirit of Yoga. Our dance/theater pieces are based on the ancient art of Hatha yoga and expose audiences to a creative and unique dance form that draws upon varying disciplines such as Tai Chi, and modern dance as well as yoga. The theatrical productions have received critical acclaim both for the focus and strength of the dancers, and the sculptural elegance and lighthearted humor of the choreography.
