The Studio

Lighthouse Dance & Yoga is a non-competitive yet motivating environment for both adults and children to celebrate creativity and movement

          When we list our studio as non-competitive, we mean that we encourage self motivation and progress for anyone who wants to refine their personal dance technique and skills.  In every class, we strive to give equal attention between developing proper technique with correct alignment and having fun!

            Whether you are a new or experienced yogi, our classes offer a chance for everyone to grow.
By teaching variations of yoga postures within a class, you have the choice to decide on the degree of difficulty to endeavor. This allows you to focus on your personal goal and create a non-intimidating environment where all levels can feel welcome and  practice together.

Director  - Tikiri Shapiro serves as the full time yoga and dance instructor for the studio. With a BFA in Dance from George Mason University and a 200 RYT Yoga certification from the Yava Yoga School in Fairfax, VA,  she has experience teaching in both fields.  In dance, she has performed works by Martha Graham, Stephen Petronio, Bill T. Jones, and Ohad Naharin as well as The  Nutcracker with the Oak Ridge Civic Ballet Association.  As for yoga, she offers a variety of class styles to focus on those who are taking yoga for the first time as well as advanced levels.  Her mission is to motivate students to set and accomplish their goals and gain confidence in their learning environment.
