The Summer of YogaRhythms

10 Mar

I sometimes have to stop and pinch myself.. It’s been a wicked summer and now we’re GOING ON TOUR!

It all started with myself and the lovely Sarah Jane Perman brain-storming about how we could co-lab, and since we were both making our dusty pilgrimage to the Playa we thought we might as well aim high and kicked off the YogaRhythms thing at Burning Man 2013 (bit of a make shift one I might add! No microphone, and little direction).  Then we thought it would be a great idea to play at Wanderlust One day teaser events, so we created a facebook page, whacked up some artwork and put it out there.  Two Wanderlust events, A mini Auckland tour, a killer halloween show, and 5 festivals later we’ve got some crazy momentum going.

I’m not going to lie. I’m excited about this project. It kneads together my favourite things –  Yoga and music – in a kind-of holy matrimony.

SJ is now a global goddess sharing her art, yoga and spiritual work all over the world. YogaRhythms has morphed into a collective bringing together magical yoga teachers and me, R.I.A on the decks creating and designing, and holding the vibe with the playlist – mixed live of course. I’ve been blessed to be working closely with Kara-Leah Grant (The Yoga LunchBox) & more recently Shian Love (Live Bright Yoga) for Sundaise Festival in recent months.

It’s becoming apparent as to what possible the culture of yoga and dance. Yoga and music is not a new thing, but by doing it with intention and thoughtful collaboration we can bring people into a state of ecstasy, oneness and connection using movement and music as our vehicle, without the drugs of traditional dance culture.  We can get to a place where people can let go and free-dance, move and create a space for transformation. I feel this is all part of our universal healing and coming back to our natural state of humanness, letting go of constraints. No judgements. Just Move.

Movement IS Medicine

YogaRhythms is not just about yoga + dance, it’s a metaphor for those of us who dare to be different. To stand tall and not shy away, to dress bright to match the rays of light that shine from our heart, to experience true love and joy because this is our true nature – to be wild and free.

With this comes a love for the Earth, because as we stand there feeling the vibration of mother nature beneath our dirty festival feet we know she needs us to stand strong for her, to honour her, to treat her with care and to connect into her divine energy.

Mother Earth is the sentience or soul of our planet. A sentience is that which is conscious or aware of itself and its purpose.

This is why we’re so bloooooooooooown away to work with teeki to help share their vision here in NZ and help them reach more hearts, minds and souls with an experience that connects us to nature with movement and high vibration.

The TEEKI story is one that starts when a young woman had visions of a beautiful earth and a conscious community of lovers that care for the land, our oceans, and each other. What manifested from this vision was Teeki.

So yes.. Did I mention myself and Kara-Leah Grant are going on tour? Yes, that’s right folks. It might just be a mini one, but for us, to be on the road, heading to sunny summer towns in our home-land, doing what we love, is just freaking awesome.

A talk with Ellie Lawler on Sacred Sexuality & Eden Festival

4 Mar

Thank you to Ellie for approaching me at Prana to help promote the Eden Festival of Conscious Sexuality Self Realization and Embodiment. Was a delight to connect and create this audio.

In this 15 Min Interview you will learn a little about Ellie’s back ground and a small insight into conscious sexuality AKA neo-tantra. But for the real deal, you’ll have to head along to the festival to get all the juicy bits and meet Baba Dez – the man behind the movement.

Eden Festival is;

(5th Annual ISTA Conference of Sexuality and Consciousness)
March 12-15th 2015, Auckland NZ

ELLIE LAWLER BIO
I am a Sacred Sexuality Priestess, Somatic Sex Educator, and member of the SSEAA (Somatic ,Sex, Educators, Association of Australasia.) Shamanic Healer, Sexological Body worker and International Facilitator.

I began my journey through this work 17 years ago in the UK when I started exploring the field of personal development and questioning what had meaning in my life. My values shifted and changed around what was important to me. I gave up my secure job and home in London to travel the world and finally put down roots in New Zealand.
