Teachers, Friends and Fish!
 
www.jumanah.org – Jumanah is my belly dance teacher in Calgary, and founder of the Little Fish Belly Dance Company, a troupe I perform with.  She was the reason I wanted to take lessons once I saw her dance!
 
www.fusiondanceyoga.com- Jumanah's new site for her Fusion Studios!  She will offer both belly dance classes and yoga classes.  She recently obtained her yoga teacher training through Yoga Passage of Calgary. Yoga has become a huge part of her life in the last few years, helping her to become more centered and aware of the connection between body and mind. Given her love of teaching, becoming an instructor in this ancient practice seemed like a natural progression.
