ABOUT
:
Kiret Singh's Bio : Kiret Singh is a KRI certified Kundalini Instructor and has been a practitioner for the past 7 years.
In 2011 I began studying under the tutelage of the Sat Jivans of NYC, eventually graduating from their studio Kundalini Yoga East in 2014. I haven't stopped once to look back. Since my early childhood I've had a innate "knowing" that there are deeper layers to reality then what we where being told. This urge to know lead me down the rabbit hole into humanities ancient past, Hermetic Wisdom, quantum physics, geopolitics and it wasn't until I came across this God Send of a technology, Kundalini Yoga, that I finally got the experience of what I was only reading about before. An experience of deeper layers within myself, Ek Ong Kar, where creator and creation are one. This lit a flame inside of me and my aim is to use that fire to light the wic that is already inside of you. It is my hopes and dreams that you stay woke and stay lit.

Womxn Rejuvenation Circle

Womxn Rejuvenation Circle is a co-created experience of women supporting women in reclaiming our bodies, beings, and sexualities as our own. We draw power from the archetype of the triple goddess: the Maiden, Mother, and and ever-wise Crone that lies within each of us, and in gathering together, we are able to tap into our deep reserves of wisdom, and healing potential.

We believe that the healing and empowerment of women is vital for the healing and empowerment of the world. Through our structure of forming a sacred circle, guided meditation, emotional check-in, ritual, and honoring our bodies' sacred sensuality, we create a healthier, juicier means of being, healing the earth and inviting a more kind and conscious society, one empowered woman at a time.


*This class involves a self breast massage technique. Participants will be guided through a series of Taoist massage techniques that work out tissues in the breast and stimulate energetic flow and connection to the body. Students have the option to participate topless, underneath a shirt, or to opt out of this portion of class.

All decisions are respected!

Tarantella Dance at Daya

::Join us for a two day intensive Tarantella Dance at Daya::

A mystical and sensual music and dance production, about the history of the dance TARANTELLA, a wild erotic Most specifically, the performance harkens back to the historic Dance of the Tarantula, a healing trance dance for women from the Greek rites of the "Baccantes." Women involved in these rites, called Tarantate, danced the "Pizzica Tarantata" ("the bite of the spider tarantula," also called "the bite of love"). 

A bite of love supposedly drove them to dance in a wild frenzy in order to free themselves of repressed sexual desires. The dominant music was percussion, with large tambourines playing non-stop to a 12/8 beat, with loud accents. By spinning and stomping their feet, participants symbolically expelled the "poison" of the mythical bite of the tarantula from their bodies. A double row of jingles on the instruments accentuated the madness as dancers, traditionally clad in white with red scarves and ribbons, moved on their backs like spiders. All participants customarily experienced a trance-like state induced by the combination of music and dancing.
Instrumentation in "Tarantella: Spider Dance" combines the traditional and the modern. Traditional percussion will include tambourines, frame drums, dumbeck, riqq and castanets. Modern instrumentation will include drum set, electric violin, techno beats and electronic music.

::ABOUT OUR HEALER::
Ashley Gwyneth grew up in York, Maine as a very athletic and school-oriented child. She was a gymnast, on sports teams, an honors student, and served on an HIV/AIDS awareness education team for New England. After a severe back injury, she began a downward spiral for years of physical "dis-ease" with partial paralysis of the digestive system, endocrine system imbalance, among many other side effects and ailments. Having to trade out sports, school, extracurriculars, and a regular kid life for constant testing/treatment in hospitals and excessive prescription medications, her emotional/spiritual strength and courage began to wain as well. After feeling largely failed by western medicine's approach to her, she sought help from a Chinese Acupuncturist that changed her life. She has since been guided and mentored by her Shaman/MD, her Reiki masters, and many gurus along the way that have provided traditional medicines and methods for her own health and the teachings for the health and well being of others.

The ocean and surfing has been her meditation and respite since her childhood accident, leading to a life of teaching surfing to all walks of life in USA, Canada, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. The transition from teaching surfing to providing healing with Reiki happened organically over the years as she began to see her students needing not only surfing technique instruction but also life guidance, support, love, acceptance, and release.

She completed her Reiki training in Puerto Rico and New York and started her first practice in Manhattan, NY in conjunction with Rolfers, Pilates Instructors, and Physical Therapists. She continued her private practice in St Augustine, Florida and became a professor in the continuing education department at Flagler College in 2017 teaching Eastern energy medicine philosophies. She currently practices in Montreal, Canada.

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a deeply restful practice that involves systematically relaxing and withdrawing sense from the body, while maintaining a calm and alert state of mind. It can be practiced by itself to restore an overworked body and mind, or as a precursor to lucid dreaming or astral projection. How deep do you want to go?

Structure ::
1. check-ins / short discussion of Nidra
2. gentle 30-minute asana practice
3. Nidra meditation, lying down

::EXCHANGE $20::

::SIGN UP HERE::

Bio ::
Despite a strong & dedicated asana practice, four years into my yoga journey meditation remained a struggle for me. Yoga Nidra was the first style of meditation that I was able to practice on my own with minimal frustration. The body scanning and creative visualizations helped me to focus, connect with my body, regulate my emotions, and really let go in a way I never could before. My style of teaching is inspired by Sri Dharma Mittra's teachings, Swami Saraswati's book Yoga Nidra, and my own practice and experience.

My intention is to give you something useful. Something that not only changes your yoga practice on the mat, but changes the way you experience your existence. We are all doing our best to make our way in this world.

Following college I worked as a designer for several fashion brands in New York City only to soon return to my movement roots. I grounded myself in personal liberation and self expression. Yoga was the “aha” switch to all things transformative. I am an inspiration seeker, a leader and a student. The things we practice each day constantly shape the directions of our lives. I wish to see people practicing feeling free within their own body and mind. I wish to see people practicing connecting with and expressing themselves. I wish to see people practicing facing fears and allowing the courage within to surface. I aim to help others move free, be playful, lead inspiring lives and enjoy the ride.

to Jul 27

Dance Camp With Susannah

DANCE CAMP is a weeklong intensive for all ages and levels of movement experience providing a safe, sacred, and JOYFUL container in which to transcend our quotidian realities and routines and experience the magic of our bodies. We use Camp, a summertime portal offering an alternative experience of one's self and reality, as a structure for this rich work of unearthing and celebration.

Each day we will focus on a different set of exercises and techniques that offer tools to explore the endless range of possibilities and information located in our physical bodies, and use these spaces to play, make, and listen to the messages that arise.

We will work with meditation, guided improvisation, Butoh, Authentic Movement, the sensual intelligence, and multi-disciplinary approaches exploring the relationship between vocalization, writing, and embodied practice. In addition, we will use tarot, ancestral guides, and ritual to do the work of honoring our connections to Earth and lineage and channeling the gifts we receive from our own root networks to access greater reserves of nourishment and liberation, knowing that our own investigations and full body awakenings are intrinsic to the health of the whole cosmic web.

DANCE CAMP is a space to play and a collective spell. You will feel your body and whole being in new, curious, remarkable ways. Doing the work of knowing and loving ourselves, starting with the body-- inherently a natural phenomenon, being made of Earth-- is the true work of revolution, and integral to the path that makes such a reality available to all beings.

In the thick of July, we work with heat and all that it has to offer, fire being the element of Creation. You are worthy of burning bright, of knowing the remarkable nature of your own flames and sparks, of learning new parts of yourself and delighting in all that you may find. Reality is ours to create, please come join in the experience of dancing into being, one that that is radical, woke, and delicious.

BLESSED BE!

Sound Breath & Pranayama
Jul
21
6:00 PM18:00

Sound Breath & Pranayama

Breath is that which carries the universal life force, Prana. Sound is the first element of the universe created by that same force. Breath is an automatic function of the body whereby there is a pressure differentiation between that which is inside the lungs and outside. As we inhale the pressure outside the body is greater, thus the inflow of air. The exhale is when the pressure inside is greater, thus an expelling from the lungs. 

When we control this life force we gain greater clarity for our purpose in life. We become full of energy and refreshed. The sound bath will go deep to recenter your being with that very same force. Both sound and breath will bring you in touch with your own state of primordiality. Following roughly 30-40 minutes of breath, we will rest into the ocean of sound for over an hour. Multiple gongs, tuning forks, and a myriad of other tools will create a safe space to explore your consciousness.

Tea is much deeper than Lipton lets on! It is an ancient tradition whose riches are just beginning to bubble to the surface in the west. It is said that “tea brings nature to society” and that it offers us a powerful way to connect with ourselves and with each other. Chinese and Japanese tea mystics have cultivated tea based methods of healing and sustenance for thousands of years. We seek to engage with this wisdom through tea leaves, literature and meditation to let our thoughts settle, clarify our intentions, and retain a receptive heart. We drink all types of teas ranging from young, spritely green teas to aged fermented pu-erh tea harvested from trees that are hundreds of years old! Each week will have its own theme experienced through ceremonial forms such as gongfu, Japanese tea ceremony, and bowl tea.

Patrick has been practicing Zen meditation for over ten years. In 2016, his friend infected him with the tea bug which has grown rapidly as a result of tea’s ability to intimately convey the meditative spirit.

He looks forward to silence and mind-blowing conversations over innumerable cups of tea!

A mother and a yogini, Ambika is constantly finding balance between a natural calling for self expression in the world and the pleasure of being a full time mom and wife. She is currently exploring ways to simplify her life, to create a life where she is able to give more and to nourish herself and others with greater energy.

Originally from Latvia, Ambika’s yoga journey started at age nine, when she traveled to India and lived with her parents at an ashram in the Himalayas, for a year and a half. She was introduced to the Indian culture and the seeds were planted for her future yoga practice. After practicing hatha yoga for over ten years, and after living and working in New York, in 2011 Ambika received her yoga teacher training and certificate at Ananda Ashram in Monroe, New York. Since then she has been sharing the healing power of yoga through her hatha vinyasa yoga classes, which include pranayama, Sanskrit chanting, yoga philosophy and elements of yoga nidra and meditation.

A few years ago, while pregnant with her daughter, she felt naturally drawn to teach prenatal yoga. She took Ma Yoga Prenatal Teacher Training in NYC, as well as an apprenticeship program with Mia Borgata. With the understanding that birth is a uniquely individual experience, in her prenatal classes Ambika creates a balance between building strength and relaxation.

ABOUT:
::Jes Allen::
I have a lifetime of experience in movement and the arts. I grew up dancing, drawing, and competing in gymnastics. I was unquestionably rebellious, seeking freedom in everything. Following college I worked as a designer for several fashion brands in New York City only to soon return to my movement roots. I grounded myself in personal liberation and self expression. Yoga was the “aha” switch to all things transformative. I am an inspiration seeker, a leader and a student. The things we practice each day constantly shape the directions of our lives. I wish to see people practicing feeling free within their own body and mind. I wish to see people practicing connecting with and expressing themselves. I wish to see people practicing facing fears and allowing the courage within to surface. I aim to help others move free, be playful, lead inspiring lives and enjoy the ride.

::Kevin Tobar::
I am a lover of life and seeker of wisdom. That search started in the body through movement and quickly began to include the philosophical and spiritual. As a teenager I practiced and performed Martial Arts and studied Buddhism at the Shaolin Temple. After an injury, I turned to yoga as a healing aid and fell in love with the physical practice. In 2010 I lived in India for a year and began studying various schools of Vedanta. The experiences I had there launched a life-long passion for Vedic knowledge. After a lot of traveling I came back to New York in 2015 and was introduced to the path of Bhakti Yoga, which completely changed my life and the way I teach. 

My intention is to make the Vedic teachings and Bhakti philosophy available to everyone. I endeavor to make this sacred ancient wisdom applicable to our everyday life. I teach to the body and spirit and create space for deep revelation. I lead monthly Kirtans at Daya and all over New York. Being fully engaged in the practice of mantra and chanting I often bring this element of yoga to my teachings. My hope is to bring light to the shadows of our existence. To remove the veils of ignorance and illusion so that we may connect to the soul. To create space and freedom in the heart so that we may move away from the things that hold us back, and embrace all that uplifts and connects us.

Fourth Of July Workshop

Fourth Of July Workshop

Freedom in Confinement: Exploring Freedom in our Bodies and Minds

What does it mean to be free ? What is freedom ? How can we find freedom in our bodies ? How we gain freedom from the chatter of the mind? How can our yoga practice help us live more freely ?

Come explore these questions with Rob McCormick on the Fourth of July at 12:30. The workshop will begin with a circle discussion about freedom, where we will explore what it means to be free, and how we can find freedom in our bodies through movement and breath. We will explore the concept of surrender, and the paradox of surrendering to our limitations as human beings, while seeking freedom and liberation. Discussion will be followed by a yoga practice where we will explore concepts brought up in our discussion. During the practice, we will explore binds and twists, which may in the moment feel limiting, but can actually help us to practice yoga (and live) more freely.

ABOUT
Rob began doing yoga in college to help find balance amidst the rigor of university life. He immediately fell in love with the mental and physical benefits of yoga, and ever since his first class, has been on a mission to deepen his practice and gain a better understanding of self. Rob views yoga as a way of life, and not simply as a physical practice. Through yoga and meditation, Rob seeks to cultivate greater awareness, love, and compassion. Yoga continues to guide Rob through a process of self-reflection and self-transformation, and Rob believes yoga can be a powerful tool for self-empowerment and self-realization. Rob believes in the power of yoga to liberate ourselves from the endless chatter of the mind, so that we may live freely, authentically, and peacefully. 


Rob recently completed his 200-HR Vinyasa Teacher Training at Daya in 2018. His personal practice is inspired by the Hatha, Vinyasa, and Kundalini schools. He continues to draw inspiration from many of his fellow Daya teachers, and has devoted himself to being a student and teacher of yoga. Rob's classes focus extensively on alignment, breathwork, and intention to allow each student to gain greater awareness and mastery of self. He seeks to create a healing space for his students where they can explore the depths of body and mind through asana, pranayama, and meditation. Rob's intention is to serve as a guide for his students so they may experience peace, balance, and harmony on and off the mat.

Imaginary Body
Jul

2:00 PM14:00

Imaginary Body

We are taught that the imagination is a special gift from above that some of us have and some of us don’t. In truth, the imagination is free for everyone, and belongs to no one. It is a muscle group we can choose to develop. An environment we can choose to explore. A relationship we can choose to deepen.

In yoga class, we are constantly asked to use our imagination. Ground down through your feet. Send your heart forward. Create a straight line of energy from this foot to that hand. How do we do these things? We do them by going beyond Imagination As Secret Movie Theater Inside My Head. We come into imagination as an embodied experience. And, when our imagination wakes up, our body wakes up.

***Please wear clothes you are comfortable doing strange movements in! And a notebook if you like writing stuff down!***

ABOUT
Gabriel is a storyteller, theatermaker, teacher, and witch. They have always been obsessed with stories. Growing up, they immersed themselves in a neverending flood of books, comic books, tv shows, and video games. They grew into a young artist with a bright, vivid imagination — who was completely out of touch with their physical body.
Through yoga and meditation, Gabriel found a way back home. A practice for living a life full of both big, shiny ideas and grounded, earthly embodiment. All along this winding road, their constant guide is the awakened imagination. Whether consciously or not, when we practice yoga each of us tells a story with our bodies. It is up to each of us to choose the kind of story we tell. 
As a yoga teacher, Gabriel seeks to help people choose to tell stories that are wakeful, nourishing, and healing. You can visit them and learn more at gabrod.com

with our beautiful queer bodies we try to float
but maybe our strings are too long
because many of us seem to feel pulled down
or
tethered to the structures that were created to keep us from floating

we are beautiful
in all of our colors and shapes
we are here - a queer family

and we can create a space together
to flow and float
to cut the strings that ground us
.

.

This workshop is a continuation of classes offered from last summer and is open to anyone in the LGBTQIA+ community. The intention of this class is to create a courageous space centered around cultivating love and community through shared stories and movement.

Astrology for Yogis

2:00 PM14:00

Astrology for Yogis

Astrology is an ancient and vast science that acts as a modern day GPS for navigating our lives and relationships. Oftentimes when we sit down to study our charts the information remains at the intellectual level of our beings. As yogis and seekers its imperative to move these intellectual practices into our bodies and daily lives as a living meditation. Astrology for Yogis explores how to create a practical daily practice that is simple enough to do everyday of the week!

In this three hour workshop we will explore how to identify the major planets in our personal chart and how to develop a daily practice of tuning in to their meaning, frequency and teachings. We will also explore the ways in which a yoga asana practice can help to balance, heal and harmonize the energies of the planets within the various cycles of our lives.

Our first class will cover the Sun and Moon.

What to Expect:
-Discussion of the planets, signs and houses of astrology.
-Practices to invoke the energy of the planet including meditation, mantras and mudras.
-Discussion and practice of yoga postures and sequences to further align with the energies of the day.

Please bring a journal and colored pencils or pens.
All levels of yoga practitioner and astrology enthusiasts are welcome!

My goal is to provide an overall experience where one can enter a labor which will allow the unnecessary layers to be removed and the true self can be uncovered and recived. “ Self realization “ is one of the main goals of yoga.
