— ☯ YOGA TRANCE DANCE® with ARIANA BATES
Get ready to move the way love moves! Yoga Trance Dance®, created by Shiva Rea, is a contemporary exploration of the spirit of dance within yoga. Beginning with prana vinyasa yoga, yoga trance dance flows into an exploration of free-form, breath driven movement to liberate one’s creative life force and cultivate embodied freedom. Join us for a fun community ritual celebration of dance!
Whether you love to dance or loath to dance, you will enjoy the universal rhythmic beat of Yoga Trance Dance. The sound scape is a blend of epic world dance music that connects to the natural rhythms of the earth, water, fire and air. Ariana Bates is an energetic leader that loves to spark the dance fire!
Ariana shares Yoga Trance Dance® at Festivals, like the Oregon Eclipse Festival, Sedona Yoga Festival, San Fran Green Fest, Mantra Mela, Love Long Beach Fest and more! A so-cal native with a global vision, Ariana is a resident teacher at Ecstatic Dance LA, Agape and at Yogalution. Service work includes being the Co-Founder of Free Yoga On The Beach in 2012.
— We open with a special warmup yoga or movement class facilitated by a skilled practitioner. The opening class blends seamlessly into the the two hour freeform dance journey facilitated by our guest DJ. At the end of the DJ set we close with a sound bath or group exercise to ground and complete the experience.
— What to expect:
Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering for people who want to express themselves freely, to connect, and to expand together.
