Ashtanga Yoga

Time: 10:30 am    Location: Wellness tent   Equipment: Bring your own mat

Natalie Correa Ashtanga YogaAshtanga yoga is a beautiful and highly therapeutic yoga practice if done regularly. It welcomes complete beginners to advanced practitioners. Students will be introduced to the foundations of the vinyasa method: the link between free breathing and movement. Traditionally the Ashtanga series is learned posture by posture, making it easy to memorize and allowing each individual to practice at their own rhythm. On this occasion the session will be a led class, counted in Sanskrit, to flow with the breath through a primary series.

Teachers: Natalia Correa (Certified KPJAYI) (video) / Britanny Morgan (Certified KPJAYI)

Tai Chi

Time: 11:30 am    Location: Wellness tent

Tai ChiThe Taoist Tai Chi® arts are very practical, as is the Taoist tradition from which they spring. Although they are founded on the principles of internal alchemy, which has always been central to the Taoist monastic tradition, the arts taught by Master Moy are designed to facilitate Taoist internal training in an era in which people are no longer living in the monasteries but are devoting their time to social and family obligations.

The demo will consist of an introduction, Tai Chi set (108 moves) and conclusion and will last a total of 20 minute.

Sound Healing and Meditation

Time: 12:00 noon    Location: Wellness tent

Klara Milada will speak, tone and chant, accompanying herself on various instruments including singing bowls, steel drums, ocarina, and shakers, as she leads participants through a visualization meditation where they will connect deeper with nature and themselves. The vibrations from sound have a profound effect on the body and spirit and can heal, ground, and connect us more strongly to our intuition and the world around us.
