Workshop Description: Unification Yoga is a style of Yoga that focuses on the internal conversation that happens between your mind and your body, facilitated by the breath. It is based on Ashtanga style vinyasa, where there is more focus placed on the internal experience versus the external form. As the student’s body becomes still, so does the mind, which makes for a beautiful transition into sitting meditation. If you’ve ever tried to meditation and found that you cannot still your mind, this is for you!

Ecstatic Free Flow Dance
with Melluna

Biography: I surround myself with nature, music, and the Healing Arts
daily. I have been involved with the Electronic Music scene for the past
20 years, I have been to some amazing festivals around the world, and I
connect deeply to this culture and the creative people it attracts. I first
attended an Ecstatic dance workshop at Shambhala music fest in 2006
and was very moved by the experience. I later found a regular Sunday
morning Silent dance party in Hawaii and I came back to Winnipeg and wanted to share this concept. I
have since then guided a few Ecstatic dance workshops at places such as Winnipeg Folk Fest
Campground, The Goddess Fest, Prairies Edge Eco Village, and a few local community events.
Workshop Description: Let’s explore our dance on a deeper level, let’s allow our bodies to express our
inner truth through movement. We will journey through music with no communication with each
other, a 'silent dance party', blindfolded at times to really give us that 'dance like no ones watching'
experience. We will start with some moving breathwork meditation (Qi Gong) to find our center, shake
off the old stagnant energy, then we will dance our way up through the Chakras and activate these
energy centers. Now that we have the energy flowing up from our Root Chakra out through the Crown
we will allow our bodies to move openly and freely to the music, feeling no inhibitions, and expressing
the best version of ourselves.
