RISE is a weekly ecstatic dance; a space where you can be in your body, be in your expression, and be in community. Each week, our experienced DJs take us on a journey to our hearts and give us the energy to expand the ways that we can move. The music of ecstatic dance combines electronic and world-music genres, mixing a variety of different emotions and tempos into the session. Each dance will begin with a 20 minute opening warm-up session (not mandatory to join) led by an experienced instructor in a related movement modality such as yoga, qigong, contact improv, capoeira, kung fu and more. The end of each session closes with a community circle - giving us the opportunity to acknowledge each other and the journey that we have been through. Sacred sound healing music and acoustic heart songs will close our container. What is Ecstatic Dance? Dance is a necessary human form of expression found in all cultures and its ancestors. Ecstatic dance is a practice where all movement is celebrated and there are no set routines, steps, or guidance. It is powerful to be in a space of pure expression; stepping onto the dance floor where others are feeling free allows us to loosen up and be comfortable in our body and personality. The music of ecstatic dance is performed by skilled DJs who combine electronic and world-music genres, mixing many different emotions and tempos into the session. Dancers explore new movements solo or while interacting with others, and often find ecstatic feelings of happiness from connection with their spirit, their emotions, and their community. This practice is not connected to any culture, religion, region, or ethnic background. It is a practice that unites us across all cultural boundaries. The music brings us together to witness how we are all beautiful in our uniqueness.

Are you struggling to nail down your arm balance and handstands? In vinyasa or flow classes, we're usually taught balances like crow, side crow and more - yet in order to be able to do these poses, we may need more specific indications, teachings and understandings that can't be explained in a regular class. This workshop will be a guided asana practice with four mini-workshops in between - one for each specific asana. Niko will help you: • Learn efficient alignment for Crow, Side Crow and Koundinyasana B Poses • Learn drills to improve your handstands. • Understand the basic skills for handstands.
What are we? How can we experience our true nature within the body? How can we develop a greater sense of presence, awareness and live a more liberated embodied life? Join Emma as she guides you to find your own answers, and simply be with the sensations without even needing it to mean anything, or perhaps discover new questions. She will be using the system of Embodied Flow, which is a continuum of movement and expression that draws from non-dual technology of tantra, hatha yoga, and somatic movement systems. This practice allows us to come back home into the body, to listen deeply, to give permission to anything to bubble up to the surface, so the unknown or hidden parts of ourselves find ways to be felt, seen and heard. By journeying both deep inside to our own experience and out through our perceptions to the world we live in, we can begin to see beyond conditioned self-images, mental constructs, labels, and habitual patterns of thinking, moving, and living. This workshop encourages all sensations, feelings, and emotions to emerge and allow them to transform, by enhancing curiosity, movement, and radical self agency. You will leave the workshop learning to trust the body and its intuitive knowledge, experience more alertness and clarity of mind, and experience greater openness and spontaneity of being and perceiving as the body becomes more balanced and integrated.

Kirtan - a sacred gathering to praise the Divine through song and mantras. When we surrender to the music and immerse ourselves in the chants, our hearts connect with the Higher Consciousness within. Feel the relaxation, openness, and emotional release as we journey from the mind to the heart. Diane's passion for Kirtan blossomed under the guidance of Ellen Arthur since March 2022. Months of practice led her to host her own soulful Kirtan circles, which have grown in numbers. Recently, she also embraced the wisdom of Sarasvati Dasi from Kirtaniyas/Hanuman Project, enriching her musical journey further. Mantras have been part of Diane's life since she was just 12 years old, influenced by her devoted mother, a follower of Sai Baba of India. Those early days at the Sai Baba centers nurtured her love for chanting and bhajans.
