Ecstatic Dance Journey

Ecstatic Dance, AKA Conscious Clubbing, is a consent based movement practice that encourages music to be your intoxicant. Whether you’re any good at dancing or not is irrelevant — this is simply about letting go, unleashing or releasing what’s inside and moving freely in any way you wish by being true to yourself. Some people dance, do yoga, meditate, and so much more, during these events. Our dance is about expression, not perfection. We set judgment aside, of ourselves, and others.
It’s not so much about what you look like, but what you feel like, when moving within your mind and body. Judgment usually requires punishment. Instead, we use Discernment in listening to what our minds and bodies need in each moment. Show up for yourself and others, close your eyes, take a deep breath and move with us through this enlivening and supportive journey.

Kirtan with Vishnu Blue

Kirtan is the art of ecstatic chant. At its fundamental level it is singing together as a group. The art of Kirtan is found in how we approach this type of spiritual practice. We must transcend our ordinary habits of thinking, releasing our self-consciousness and find our own unique voice, which is the center of our personal power and the expression of our soul.
No previous experience necessary. Come to sing, to dance or just to listen.
This is not a performance. This is sincere and real spiritual practice. Come find your voice!

Restorative Yoga Practice with Live Ambient Music

Rest & Refresh Restorative Yoga Practice which not only allows us to relax and release, but also to turn inward to know ourselves deeply. This class features live ambient music using guitar, synthesizers & drumming which all assists to create a sound journey experience.

Dayley May’s Family Friendly Sing-a-Long 

Dayle Extrell and her puppet friends will play and sing some family favorites, along with some original children’s songs and chants! Audience participation strongly encouraged!

Dayle Extrell

Dayle was introduced to yoga while earning a BFA in music and theatre at Central Michigan University. The physical practice helped with breath support and was a great way to ‘warm-up’ before a show. As an anxious actor in NYC, the yoga mat quickly became a place of refuge, while fostering self-love, compassion and providing a much needed community.  While her interest in the stage faded out, sharing the gifts of yoga moved into the spot light.  She is an E-RYT and YACEP with over 3,500 teaching hours that have spanned NYC, Colorado and now back home in the Great Lake State! for more, check out www.dayleextrell.com

PUPA
Vnesswolfchild and Saltbreaker come together to present PUPA, a time to rest into a nest of healing frequencies. Lush landscapes of sound will create a space for the body to open and soften while a guided meditation directs the energetic field to release and restore. Transformation and refreshment abound.
