Do you like your yoga served up with blissful beats?

19 Feb

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 19, 2014

YogaRhythms is a transformational experience of yoga, dance, radical self-expression and electronic music lovingly dished up by Australian yoga teacher and movement experimentalist, SJ (Sarah-Jane Perman) & talented local NZ DJ R.I.A (Rire Norman).

After a perfect connection at Burning Man in 2010, soul sisters SJ and Rire have collaborated to bring together their greatest loves – YOGA, DANCE and MUSIC – with the intention to create a space for participants get back in their flow and LET GO in a yoga rave, minus the hectic beats and strobes.

SJ feels that it is important for people to take time out to dance and move creatively – “we live such busy lives, filled with distractions and the endless pressure of technology so sometimes we lose our connection to each other and to ourselves. YogaRhythms provides a place for people to connect to their hearts, experience their bodies and get crazy on the dance floor.’  

DJ R.I.A. will be sure to keep everyone grooving – ‘The music will flow, just like the yoga, and there WILL BE DANCING INVOLVED. Guaranteed.’

YogaRhythms performed their first NZ gigs over the weekend at Splore Festival to packed audiences.  Emma Mildon (author and blogger) was front and centre – ‘The combo of yoga poses with soul pulsing beats and toe tapping tunes made for the most enlightening and uplifting yoga experiences I have ever experienced.  I rarely turn ‘groupie’ but I was so in blown away by the energy and talents of these ladies that I had to go up for a hug and to give thanks – SUPER talented chicks who have brought a whole new experience and meaning to holistic fitness.  Nourishing the body, mind, soul and spirit with vibrational healing, meditation, yoga, relaxation, dance and blissful beats!’

YogaRhythms is a ‘next-level’, alcohol free dance party in a yoga class. B.Y.0 yoga mats (good, but not essential), your dancing feet, and an open heart.

YogaRhythms – This is It

10 Feb

The YogaRhythms debut is coming to Splore this weekend, then carries on for a mini Auckland tour!

Sj and I have poured our hearts into creating something that is different, new and fresh for those that adore yoga, dance and mindful living.  Its kind of nerve racking considering we’ve done one show previous to this, and that was at Burning man, with no real equipment or direction.  This time it’s different.

What is YogaRhythms you say? well, it’s a yoga-rave of sorts without the strobes and a little less hectic on the beats. We like to say it’s all about ‘flow’ which is obviously a key word when it comes to practicing core-strength vinyassa flow (which is our favorite style of yoga!)

Both coming from a musical background, i can’t wait to present  a DJ set scored to a yoga/flow/dance session with SJ.  SJ will be mic’d up with a madonna head set, and I will be lacing the beats over SJ’s dynamic class.

The music will flow, just like the yoga, and there WILL BE DANCING INVOLVED. Guaranteed

Feb 22      SPECIAL WORKSHOP WITH SJ ‘ Awaken the power of your Courageous Heart’

2-4pm, Mairangi Bay Tickets The Yoga Sanctuary

“our heart is a very powerful space of strength, courage and Divine love. On the flip side it is also a space of vulnerability and softness that we like to close off when we feel afraid, shielding it with the armor of our back body in an act of protection. During this workshop you will tap into and awaken the fire of your courageous heart and channel your inner warrior god/goddess through a dynamic flow of standing poses, hip openers, arm balances and heart opening backbends to help you dissolve your fears, shed your armor and allow you to experience the pure power of your heart. Be brave and embrace your challenges, keep your heart open to your limitless potential and your courage will surely follow…!” – Yoga with SJ
