Imaginary Body

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
Kenny Speery / 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.

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.

ABOUT

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
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

Astrology is an ancient and vast science that acts as a modern day GPS for navigating our lives and relationships.

Our first class will cover the Sun and Moon.

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. So the dreams can become true, so the suffering can lead you to happiness, so the harmony of the senses, the elements can be found.

Tarantella Dance at Daya

5:00 PM17:00

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.

Prepare for a Vibrant Spring
Mar
25
2:00 PM14:00

Prepare for a Vibrant Spring

The Astrological New Year begins with the sign of Aries, the harbinger of Spring, a time when signs of life start to appear in seemly dormant trees and plants. Aries marks a time of commencement and the beginning of the creative process. It is connected to the vibratory activity of the soul and represents the birthplace of ideas.

.

During the winter we used this this time of quietude to regroup and regenerate, readying ourselves for renewal in the Spring. As plants and trees discarded old growth in order to make way for the new, we also discarded all that was of no use to us going forward.

.

In preparation for Spring we will work on our spiritual regeneration and rebirth into the year ahead. We will prepare ourselves to unfold the power of manifestation in the year of the master number Eleven, the most intuitive and transcendental of all numbers. This is the year to grow into our most radiant and influential transformation yet.
