Line-Up

Yaima

Through a process of gradual, peaceful, progressive change Yaima’s second album “OvO” offers audiences a state-of-the-art conceptual experience. “OvO” immediately captivates the listener with an over-arching and enchanting story line that portrays the simple life cycle of a seed. The prominent motif of the Seasons weaves the album into perceived chapters, each section reflecting themes, lessons and impressions opportune to it’s season. “OvO”means “seed” or “egg” and stands for the point in time or space at which something starts- the next evolution. The Owl appears on the cover art as well as in the title “OvO” and represents the elemental energy of the Wind. Owl stands for the truth and the ability to navigate through the darkest night by finding and listening to the wisdom and light from within ourselves. OvO’s overarching theme of the cyclical nature of life creates a sense of deep connection to the music that listeners around the world have been keen to rediscover each time they listen to the album.

Finding their niche within the Transformational Festival and Yoga Community, Yaima’s music has gained great acclaim throughout North America with concerts and festival appearances in Quebec, Vancouver, Washington, Oregon, California, North Carolina, West Virginia, Vermont, Colorado, and New Mexico. They have been continually supported and sustained through their community of backers, Kickstarter Campaigns and Online music sales. Their first album “Pellucidity” was released in 2014 through The Polish Ambassador’s label- “Jumpsuit Records” and quickly became well known and loved throughout the Sacred Music Community along the West Coast.

Yaima’s music was designed to weave heartfelt storytelling and rich organic instrumentation with finely produced compelling beats

 as a collaboration between Producer & Sonic Architect Masaru Higasa and Folk Lyricist & Storyteller Pepper Proud. Their live performances have grown to include multi-instrumentalist Jeff Kimes, Bassist Mark Dalton and many other talented musicians. Yaima’s performances have been remarked to “lead the listeners on a Journey” and whenever possible the music is accompanied by Visual Projections by Kaizen (Everett Keithcart) as well as interwoven Dance performances & Poetry (supported in the past by Kirra Lien, Jamilia Honeybear, Chrysef Honeybear, Aleah Robbins and Zepto Space).

That seems to be the pervasive important question. Well, I can tell you this, I am singing in my heart and paying attention to the world around me.  I have the response ability to be amazing with my life.  Shining gratitude on all the wonderful blessings bestowed upon me: the inclination toward music, my loving and patient family, my relationships, friends, collaborators, teachers, my health and happiness and my ability to create and nurture those things every moment, is a practice every day.”

Cacao Ceremony Co-Creation

Our experience begins with a meditative and intentional cacao ceremony for attuning our group field, next we will open our voices together to unify the space in group toning and song, and then the container will open, for those who feel called to share, for 1-3 minutes each (depending on the number of people attending), to offer personal expressive “medicine” with the group (a medicine song, an improv dance, a free-flow song, a poem, a story, etc.). We will close with an integrative Shivasana experience.

The Cacao you will enjoy is pure medicine from Guatemala (pure Mayan heirloom ceremonial seed)– a powerful plant ally for opening the heart and scrubbing clean the auric/emotional body.

About Cory bradley

Hi, My name is Cory Bradley, I was born in the woods of Mount Shasta CA on December 11th 1992. Naturally, I am an Earth lover and I cherish the trees, and everything green, though the extent of my love for the earth hadn’t been fully realized until I discovered permaculture in 2015. This lead me to symbiosis gathering where i took a 55 hour intensive permaculture course and learned far more than i ever expected. It opened my eyes to a whole new world and i saw the potential for growth and greatness that we as humans on this planet have, and I learned that the amount of good and love in the world far exceeds our need for greed and drive for power. I learned that the problem isn’t over-population, its improper distribution, we’ve just been blinded by a “conditioned” education system that perpetuates this absurd abuse of the planet that we live on and its resources that it gives so freely. Its time we take the reigns and become the change which we wish to see in the world.

After that I began studying and soon earned my PDC through Oregon State University in 2017. Since then i have been planning and preparing for a new future for generations ahead. A permaculture friend of mine decided to create a non profit organization called Gaianomics, our goal with gaianomics is to redirect the human fate of consumerist driven destruction, to an empowered community of flourishing diversity, which will then create resiliency. In order to achieve this goal, cooperation and collaboration is the defining key, not one of us knows everything, but together we can achieve anything.

May we all acheive our greatest dreams and aspirations!

Vinyasa Flow with Steven Lewis (Rama Deva)

I offer a wide variety of modalities including: Ashtanga Primary Series & Intro classes, Vinyasa Flow All levels, Arm Balance Flow, Restorative, Moving Meditations, Yoga Nidra, Pranyama, Meditation, Chakra Flow, Kids Yoga. I can customize class to the environmoment. {I also applied through the other workshop app for some hybrid yoga/dance/movement offerings} My yoga is a result of my struggles and successes both in my life and on the mat. I really resonated with Ashtanga Yoga and building strength in body, mind, and spirit. I am also a practitioner of Capoeira, which has brought my core awareness and alignment to a new level, infusing my yoga practice with dynamic stability and ease. This creates a unique vinyasa opportunity to open new pathways of expression and exploration which adds a playful aspect to the practice which I feel is important for a holistic approach. I am inspired by the Yoga Principles of earnest effort without attachment to outcome and I share in my classes that “the practice of Yoga Asana is a journey of self understanding, unique for each body and to each day. Where then is the destination you seek? Mastery of Asanas is not a pre-requisite for enlightenment. Find your power through honest expression.”

Vinyasa Yin with Taylor Anderson

“Shake Your Asana is about as far away from traditional yoga as we can possibly get. It is a heart opening and liberating practice for free spirits, rebels, and rule breakers alike. Yes, it is definitely a power vinyasa class that will include oms, intentional breathing, flow, and all the other things you would expect from yoga. AND, there will be bumping EDM that compels you to become your own teacher as you dance your way through the practice in your own authentic way. Playfulness and exploration are the guiding forces. Tension and release will be built and timed with sick bass drops. We will grind our abs to deep house. And most certainly yes, you will be encouraged to Shake Your Asana in any way you see fit. Above all else, this practice will be fun, and I hope that each and every student leaves feeling safe, sexy, free, and maybe even a little bit enlightened.”

That is the short description I wrote to help promote my class, and I’d like to go a little deeper here. I practice, teach, and was trained at Namaspa, a Baptiste Affiliate Studio, and at that studio we teach a somewhat standard sequence known as the “Journey Into Power”. This involves a warm up, sun As and Bs, some sun B variations and spinal twist, a standing series, more sun B variations, a floor series of back bends in both prone and supine, abs, hips, inversions, spinal twist, and finally a shavasana. In Baptiste yoga the teacher rarely demos, and instead walks around the class and offers hands on assist.

As a seasoned teacher at the studio, I am allowed to change up my classes as much as I see fit while staying somewhat inside the Baptiste box. I tend to incorporate some things that are slightly more acrobatic than most instructors do, and use a lot of simple things to bring conditioning for hand stands and other challenging poses into my all levels classes.

As a teacher I am mainly known for my assist. I offer LOTS of deep and juicy assist to students who opt in at various levels of consent, and combine my background in acro yoga, thai massage therapy, and traditional body work to offer completely original yoga assist. Honestly, sometimes I make them up on the spot. Truth, this happened in my yin class that I taught this evening, and the student loved it. Anyway, those whom opt in at the highest level of consent (I give options at the start of class) and whom I know and trust, receive nontraditional assist that I get RAVE reviews on every time I teach. I routinely sit on or stand on my students, pick them up off the floor, or smoothly wrap my body around theirs to aid in a wide array of poses while flowing through the practice. I push, press, pull, lift, extend, wrap, twist, and stretch my students from pose to pose the entire class. It’s like a dance, and I absolutely love it. Suzie Newcome, The owner of Namaspa, is a senior teacher in Baptiste Yoga and travels the world leading weekend long workshops for teachers. She recently taught “Advanced Art of Assisting” in New Mexico, and personally reached out to me to help her prepare. Namaspa does two 200h YTTs each year, and I often aid in the teacher trainings, especially when it comes to consent and in-class assist. In addition, Suzie also personally reaches out to me when she needs her classes subbed while shes traveling. There are lots of highly certified and experienced teachers at our studio, most far more experienced than I am, but she reaches out to me, largely I think, because of my talent with assist, and ability to connect with students.

Okay, enough bragging about my assist. I am also known for having a really light hearted approach to yoga. My classes are super playful, and often the whole studio erupts into laughter. Although I have a profound amount of respect for the practice, I don’t take myself to seriously. It is, after all, just yoga dude. I feel like this attitude creates space for the real magic of yoga, which does not need to be forced or facilitated, but just allowed to occur.

My classes tend to be on the more challenging side as well, but I tone that down for music festivals or retreats. However, because I focus so much on alignment and form and precisely explain where to push and how to squeeze and all that jazz, students often find themselves floating into poses they’ve never done before.

Shake Your Asana on the other hand is quite different. This is a class that I’ve been teaching on Friday evening for three years now. There’s a disco ball, dance lights, black lights, and loud EDM. I spend countless hours perfecting my playlist and memorizing every beat drop before I teach to it so that I can use the music as a prop, rather than a distraction. Because its supposed to be the bad boy of Baptiste yoga classes, I tend to stay away from focusing heavily on alignment. I run through the absolute fundamentals, but from there I encourage my students to get outside of the box they have put themselves in with their personal practice. We dance. Sometimes it is guided dancing from me, other times students are encouraged to move any way they want to in a given pose. Break the rules, point your toes if you want to, bend in some weird way, do what feels good and right. At least once a class we shake it all off and have a full on un-guided dance party.

Every Baptiste studio has this class, but I’ve taken it farther than anybody else that I know of and have gotten really good results. On Fridays at 5:30 PM I see 20-50 every week come sweat and dance themselves clean. It’s the highlight of my week. The class averaged 4-8 before I took it over three years ago.

Iyengar & Vinyasa Yoga with Astral Ayla

The yoga movement I teach has a structured form although it remains fluid in its ability to expand beyond the structured teachings to allow Self + the physical individual to branch off and explore movement candidly while maintaining supportive body alignment as to not injure ones self during fluid movement expression. Knowledge + Wild Expression.

Although my teaching style has expanded beyond that on a personal level and am drawn to teach and inspire within others the ability to learn YOUR body, how it moves, wishes to move, and to learn what ways we may work within our bodies to optimize our potential for maximum abundance on all levels existence. From subtle body to physical, emotional to psychological, our bodies hold every experience within the fascia network. The movement and yoga I teach allows one to tap into this network, identify and release what emotions have been stored within our body for often lifetimes.

My teachings are unique in that I share with others how to identify their self worth and potential, tap into their abilities which they may be unfamiliar with, and to learn to trust themselves when getting to know their subtle body, fascia network. I also share teachings on how to navigate through the trapped emotions within the physical and subtle body.

The emphasis of my teachings is to provide others with a safe space to get to know themselves through the body to get to a level they may not have realized existed before. Along with methods of how to understand what it is they’ve just tapped into, as well as how to carry that expression on and off mat.

Visionary Artists

Lindy Kehoe

Lindy Kehoe enjoys living a spacious and peaceful life, choosing to reflect that quality within her dream-like work. Contemplative and quiet, her paintings are portals into the sublte realms of rememberance, shape-shifting in care of the viewer.

Her mediums include oil paints on canvas, acrylic, earth pigments (stoneground), clay-based eco paints, water colors and ink on paper. The body of work on this sight reflects a decade of painting after her studies at Ohio University, where she received her Bachelors of Fine Art, focusing on Art Education. As a certified Art Educator for kindergarten through Highschool, she has taught in many fashions and ages. This journey brought her to Napa, California, where she taught as a Middle School Art teacher at River School in 2006-2007.

Called to the Northen Landscape and Rivers, she moved to the Rogue Valley of Oregon, where she fell in love, and illustrated Star Hawk’s “Last Wild Witch”, published by Mother Tongue Ink of We’Moon. She received a Silver “Nautilus Award” for her illustrations. Lindy’s work has been featured in “Spirituality in Health Magazine”. Her work has been internationally published since 2004 in the We’Moon Calendar books and Wall Calendars. Her work has been shown in galleries and festivals across the west coast, with Art Visionary Masters including Alex Grey, Martina Hoffman, and Mark Henson.

Lindy is currently weaving together her many images into a story book called “Urial and Arianna and the Transformation of the Worlds.” She considers this a book for all ages that reads like poetry and finds itself to be an interdimensional journey through time and space.

Eric Nez

Eric Nez is our featured artist for this event! He has graciously allowed us to use this painting for our poster art this year and some of his paintings will be on display at the event. Eric may attend and paint if his schedule permits but at least some of his art will be there!

Painting was a gift given to Eric Nez at an early age.  His parents (an artist and a Yogini, both lovers of life) ensured that he had plenty of tools to express his innermost realms.  A devoted artist-mystic, Nez is both a visionary and a cultivator of the soul.  Tending the garden of personal transformation… offering to the sacred self: nurturing environments, wholesome nutrients, divine light, and love in order to grow the fruit of the spirit and share it with the Universe.

The Muses of yoga, plant medicines, alchemy, and magic lay their offerings at the feet of Nez.  His creative process is deeply influenced by transpersonal psychology and the spiritual sciences, as well as intergalactic experiences.  The spirits of the mystics all gather around Eric’s studio to whisper in his ear and guide his hand as he paints.

The art of Eric Nez is both a stepping-stone and a chronicle of his evolution of consciousness.  Explorations of distinctly different worlds, powerful life experiences, and teachings from ascended masters… all of these find a home in the work of Nez.  His every painting is offered up to the universal collective as a catalyst for transformation.

Deeply influenced by the blissful, sacred experiences of life, Eric defines his work as the visual fruit of his own personal growth.  He considers himself a seeker- traversing many realms, translating and sharing the discoveries of his travels through the secret and ancient language of pictures.
