Join this uplifting, heart-opening, community building class that will ignite deep healing through laughter, eye contact, touch, yoga, dance & blissology. Join us in this ultimate experience to top off your long holiday weekend and to ground you in peace & love.
Do you have enough LOVE in your life? Connection? Breath? Joy?
Spend the first 45-minutes gathering in a tribal circle exploring group activities that involve eye contact, greetings from various cultures that include touch, laughter, creativity, games, voice, healing & bliss. Spend the last hour enjoying guided movement through stress-releasing and uplifting expression of allowing your limbs, torso, hair, heels and palms to flow in yoga, flow movement, dance, Tai Chi, Pilates, Kundalini Yogic Kriyas, or whatever else our individual or group energy is calling for. A partner or group pose may be intertwined. If you “don’t dance,” don’t think you do “partner poses” or are new to yoga practice, you will continue to feel nurtured, supported, safe & uplifted throughout this workshop.

A partner or group pose will be intertwined.

LIVE MUSICAL PERFORMANCE & KIRTAN with JOSS JAFFE & DUB MANTRA
I was blessed to recently meet Joss while he was playing live on tabla & vocals with Jaya Lakshmi & Ananda during a Kirtan at a home in Oakland. Joss is a totally bright light! He’s talented and deeply knowledgable about this healing music he delivers with a smile & love.
Often in our busy lives, we have to run out of the yoga studio after class. After spending our Friday evening laughing, meditating and getting to know each other on a deeper level, let’s take it slow gathering our things and giving our goodbyes. Savoring the vibration and taking it with us when we depart. Good music. Good people. Good feelings in our hearts & souls.
*Kid’s 13-17: $5 with accompanying adult
*Kid’s 12 and under: Free
No one turned away due to lack of funds. A bag will be near the entrance to contribute if you can. All proceeds go toward renting the yoga studio and/or future live musical guests.
*The 7:30-9:00pm class will not be a “traditional” kids or family yoga class, but kids 2-yrs & up are welcome with your discretion and supervision. Feel free to bring the family. I’ll be leaving the 2 studio doors open during class so any partners with babies can hang out in the “living room” with babies or older kids who want to be present but don’t want to be in the “class.”
Please call Rebecca with any questions.
