OMA's Mission

 Organic Movement Atelier by Aliyah Monea' explores the physical activities of dance, yoga, group fitness, and sports. Through the variety of movement programs, OMA merges the aesthetics of artistic expression with the natural  healing qualities of recreational and kinesthetic movement.   

About Aliyah Monea'

image5

After years of teaching for different studios, camps, and a variety of public and private schools throughout Baltimore, Aliyah Monea' has initiated a program of her own.  

Through her own poetic affirmations and choreographed fluidity of movement, both Aliyah Monea’s dance and yoga classes seamlessly interconnect artistic expression and exploration of the body, mind, and spirit. You might find that her choreography is aesthetically designed to foster a mode of self introspection and expression as she aims to connect the sensations of the physical body with the spiritual. 

Aliyah first began to explore dance ministry at age nine and is currently,  a minister of dance with 1346 Dance Ensemble. Aliyah graduated from Bucknell University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Health and Dance. There she founded Bucknell University’s very own Bisonettes Dance Team in 2010. In 2013 Aliyah spent 5 months in London, Paris, and Amsterdam where she studied art history, British architecture, and dance. Later in 2015, Aliyah was trained by Kim Manfredi through Charm City Yoga’s 200-hour teacher training program. She is now a certified and registered yoga instructor. 

As a public health advocate and future doctor of physical therapy, she fervently believes in physical activity, artistic expression,and the body’s natural abilities to heal itself.  In 2012 she sustained a knee injury which jeopardized her college dance career. By the grace of God, she attributes her dance and yoga practice as the major contributor to her physical and emotional recovery. You will find that her classes coordinate strength building and awareness. Since 2014,  Aliyah has artistically directed and coordinated dance programs for performing arts schools, childcare programs, and  classes and physical education programs around Baltimore city.
