Raised on an island in South Carolina, singer/songwriter Trevor Hall realized at a young age that music was more than just a passion – it was, rather, his life’s art. At sixteen, he recorded his first album, soon after which he left South Carolina for Idyllwild Arts Academy in California. There he studied classical guitar and was also introduced to the practices of yoga and meditation, which would greatly influence his life and his music. Hall’s music, a blend of roots and folk music with hints of inspiration from India, has led him to a series of sold-out tours and collaborations with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, Xavier Rudd and Nahko & Medicine for the People.
Hall’s most recent full-length album releases, Chapter of the Forest (2014) and KALA (2015), debuted at #3 and #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart respectively. He is currently touring around the US and Australia. While on tour, Hall collects donations to support children’s education in India.
The Polish Ambassador
Revolutionary music may seem hard to come by in these days and times. Long gone is the era of artists like Bob Marley, The Clash, Stevie Wonder and Patti Smith getting airplay and bringing their messages to the masses. But that doesn’t mean that the revolution isn’t still brewing in the hearts and minds of many people around the globe.
Meet Mike Love. One of reggae music’s rising stars. Born and raised in Oahu, Hawaii to a musical family that spans generations, Mike Love brings a multitude of influences to the table, all tied together by the common goal of making the world a better place. Through the grassroots method of releasing his albums independently, on his own Love Not War Records label, and performing 250 plus shows a year, Love has built an ever growing following for his unique and inspiring music. He has toured with many artists in the circles of conscious, roots music, including Trevor Hall, Xavier Rudd, Nahko and many more. Over the past few years he performed to enthusiastic audiences at the California Roots Festival, Wakarusa, Wanderlust and the Montreal Jazz Fest, just to name a few. He has also enjoyed great success and exposure through the web on outlets like YouTube, with one of his videos just recently hitting 9 million views!
On his award winning debut album, The Change I’m Seeking, Love harkens the legends of roots reggae in both his lyrics and his sound, but never relies on any one genre to hold him down. Coming from a wealth of influences, Love fuses the simple rhythms of classic reggae with the complex changes of the classical and rock music he was first trained on to come up with a style wholly unique to him. On his follow up album, Love Will Find A Way, released September 1st, 2015, Love further refines his sound and message, with grand and striking arrangements and deep heartfelt emotions, he takes you on a journey which many describe as “life changing”. He calls for immediate and drastic change in environmental impact on “Step Lightly”, affirms his connection with fans on “I Love You, and shows a vulnerable and touching insight into his personal life on “Advaya’s Song” and “No Regrets”. Following up with his most eclectic blend of styles, “Love Overflowing” perfectly compliments the previous release, with a downplayed mood of depth and reflection in the music.
But it’s his message, his passion, the wisdom behind his words that truly resonate with his fans. “It’s always been about the healing,” Mike Love explains, “I’ve never been into music that was shallow. I’m still learning about where I’m going and where I want to be. All the music is a learning tool for me too. I just make myself open to it and the messages come through. It’s just as teaching and healing for me as it is for anyone.”
His songs take you on a journey, one of healing and inspiration. One designed to help you on your path to knowledge, wisdom and understanding. On “Permanent Holiday” he takes you on a lyrical quest for freedom, both his and yours. He laments the ills of the world but also discusses solutions and ideas to change them. On “Earthlings” he sings about being vegan, about animal cruelty and about holding yourself accountable for your actions. These are songs with messages designed to affect change in a time when it is so desperately necessary.
Love and his band have already toured in the U.S., Canada, Central America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and East Asia. Mike Love has shared the stage with artists like Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Nahko & Medicine For The People, Xavier Rudd, Rebelution, John Butler Trio, Groundation, Steel Pulse, Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson. 2017 is shaping up to be a big year of even more growth for Love and his musical family with plenty of touring and work on a brand new record!
Wildlight is the space between the notes, the earth’s undulating pulse, the modern echoes of ancient rhythms. It is a sound that will spark your body into motion and swing your soul into flight. An unlikely pairing of a folk songwriter and an electronic music composer has yielded a new sound; music that gracefully traverses human emotions, but can also jumpstart a party into a syncopated bounce.
While vocalist Ayla Nereo delicately crafts songs that climb and tumble through a landscape of crescendos and harmonies, seasoned composer David Sugalski (aka The Polish Ambassador) keeps the beats and bass rooted deep in the subatomic layers of the earth.

A trained herbalist and acupuncturist, he is “livicated” to proliferating consciousness through proper living “standing up to do the right thingJAH LEVI AND THE HIGHER REASONING, are world class musicians who are versatile enough to spontaneously perform all genres of music.

They perform a unique blend of Reggae-Rastafarian music that is spiritually uplifting and fun to dance to. JAH LEVI founded THEOCRATIC RECORDS, one of the first independent reggae record labels in america, and JAH WORKS STUDIOS, the first solar powered digital (24-bit) recording studio in the world.

Lead singer and songwriter Drew McManus creates music for his soul, fueled by the ever present task of personal growth and the beautiful life that he found in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana. Commenting on his difficult upbringing in Des Moines and residency in Chicago, McManus says, “I grew up in an environment where aggression, violence, abuse, and addiction were always present. It made me a lot of things; angry, sad, and ashamed. I hated my story and I was a slave to addiction. I tried for so long to hide from the reality of my story and the reality of how beautiful life could be.” It wasn’t until an intense spiritual experience lead Drew to break his cycle of addiction. “I had changed my entire outlook on everything” say McManus, “I began to realize that had everything not happened to me exactly like it did, I would not be exactly who/where/what I am right now.” In an effort to share his revelation with others who may be in the same predicament, Drew began to write every day. “I was flooded with the urge to write down the lessons that kept revealing themselves in this surrender. And the connections I began making with other people by making this music vulnerable and open, began to change everything.” These songs are a statement of lessons learned and a further understanding of self. “The whole story is what makes it beautiful, not just the good bits.”
On March 20th, 2017 the band released their sophomore full length album Pyramid(s) on the Rootfire Cooperative Label, featuring guest appearances by Nahko Bear and Tim Snider of Medicine For The People, Wookiefoot, Tubby Love, and Grammy Award winner Chris Berry.

Bana Kuma Orchestra (with Chris Berry)
Bana Kuma is a wisdom tradition and a word that sees our creative power as a sacred gift. Our ability to make ethereal thoughts manifest in the physical is Bana Kuma and each person possesses this power.
Chris Berry’s Bana Kuma is based on the ancient concept that music and dance is a form of prayer that includes the community erasing the lines between performer and observer.
Through a series of workshops participants are taught 4 pieces that represent the 4 elements. The Bana Kuma likens these 4 elements to the creative process: Air is thought, Fire transformation and water is the feeling or emotion that gives brith to the final manifestation which is seen as the element of earth.
These pieces are inclusive in that they cater to profesional musicians and dancers as well as total novices. Chris Berrys masterful compositions include challenges for the most seasoned musicans as well as simpler parts for the total beginner. As Chris was taught in Zimbabwe, “If you can walk you can dance if you can talk you can sing.
Several days of workshops are held to learn the material. These workshops culminate in a prayer-formance that can be done as a private ceremony or on stage for thousands. The Bana Kuma orchestra includes drums, marimbas, dance, song and all varieties of western instruments. Chris Berrys Bana Kuma is heavily african inspired but there are many other influences intertwined making it a truly eclectic experience.
A group intention or prayer is decided upon before beginning the Bana Kuma journey. Also each individual is encouraged to use the music and dance as a personal prayer. The effects of these prayers has been documented in thousands of people being healed or experiencing massive changes in their day to day lives.
Participating and or witnessing a Bana Kuma is said to have profound inspirational effect. In the tradition of Bana Kuma there are no teachers or teachings, priests or sermons, leaders and followers. Instead one is encouraged to example their own Bana kuma or creation. As an initiate of the Bana Kuma tradition Chris Berry’s exampleship of his Bana Kuma has inspired countless people to follow their dreams around the world.
We have all felt the power of music and dance but have we truly explored its full potential. We invite you to experience music that uses sacred geometry and symatics as its base and strong intention as its guide. Experience a dance and music whose very essence welcomes and is supported by the unseen realms.

Having grown up in a family of musicians in Southern California, David Kai was raised with both song and ocean in his heart and spirit. As a kid, David found his first musical love when he began playing the drums. He spent many years thereafter playing drums in punk rock bands, skateboarding on the streets, and surfing in the ocean. After high school, David followed the path of music which led him inevitably to the expansive universe of the Grateful Dead and those who followed. At this point, David had been playing the guitar for a while and was writing his own songs. Fully equipped with a free spirit and his guitar, David began traveling and hitchhiking all over the US, writing songs, meeting people, and paving his path. He finally landed in Hawaii, where he stayed for many years.
Through his journeys, David was blessed to connect with Native Tribal elders from both North and South America. These elders continue to share with him their teachings and songs through ceremonial ways and have taught him a way of life. These teachings have had a profound influence on David and his music.
David now lives in Southern Oregon and spends much of his time traveling, seeking the ocean, and sharing the spirit of his music.
His newest album, “AWAKE,” was released in January 2014.

As facilitators we will take participants through a journey of body centered awareness practices including transformational theater, embodied movement, guided music creation, vinyasa yoga flow, and guided visualization meditations activating the 5 senses and permaculture. We will engage in interactive games and exercises for each of the 5 senses. We will also facilitate a Solutionary discussion counsel where the participants will have the opportunity to share their vision of being a co-creative change-maker in a thriving sustainable community. When we are fully in alignment with our true selves as multidimensional beings, we develop a strong connection to ourselves, our community and our environment.
Eco-Poetics and Song-weaving:
Through this transformational co-creative process, we guide participants through a journey of free-flow writing and song sharing.
Generation Waking Up
The Generation Waking Up “Wake Up Experience” is a four phase journey that lays out the context of our current planetary situation and dives into a council of generating solution. These four phases are: 1) Who are we? (As individuals, as a generation, and as an inter-generational community) 2) Where Are We? (In regards to the ideal thriving, just and sustainable world wish wish to live in) 3) What’s going on? (Global Challenges) & 4) What has to change? (Solutions)
Through interactive exercises, discussions and activities, participants will gain an expanded awareness of our planet’s great story, and our part in it as active changemakers and solution generators.

Exploration of Psychedelics / Entheogens with Martin Ball
Join Author Martin Ball as he facilitates a forum on psychedelics and entheogens.
About Martin Ball
Martin W. Ball, Ph.D., is a writer, independent publisher, energy worker, visionary artist, and musician currently living in Ashland Oregon. In the spring of 2009 Martin underwent a profound energetic opening and transformation – the result of intensive work with entheogenic medicines and a year of profound self-exploration. The result is Martin’s articulation of what he calls the “Entheological Paradigm,” a Grand Unified Theory of all of reality from God to the direct experience of each human being, which he characterizes as an articulation of his view on “radical nonduality.” His approach is unique in that he sees the tension between duality and nonduality not as a spiritual or religious issue, but as an energetic issue that can best be addressed through the intentional use of powerful entheogens, such as 5-MeO-DMT. As such, his approach is thoroughly practical, straight-forward, and free of metaphysics, speculation, and attachment to spiritual or religious ideologies and mythologies. The result is a view of the nature of reality and the self that is challenging, liberating, and powerfully transformative, pointing to the true nature of being and personal responsibility as an energetic being.

1. Fundamentals of Contact Improvisation 2. Kundalini Yoga and Alchemy 3. Mystic Rising Mudra Therapy 4.BreathPlay for Tantric Alchemy
1. Fundamentals of Contact Improvisation:
Zero Point Yoga:
Weight-sharing, points of contact, falling, rolling, spiraling and embodied listening are all integrated into a seamless flow within CI. Come and explore these skills and build confidence, coordination, communication and compassion. The class will end with a 30-45min dance/jam (or possibly round-robin) where we will apply these super fun and relevant skills in a 100% natural and organic, free-flowing, completely improvisational dance.
Contact Improvisation (CI) is similar to Nature in that it’s artistic qualities are often considered to be primal, physical, and interconnected. Dance unites physical bodies in motion with abstract qualities such as space, time, gravity and other unseen forces such as emotion, intention, and awareness. CI often lends its artistic weight primarily to the exploration of these naturally occurring physical and energetic interactions in lieu of favoring more conceptual or emotional inquiries that other art and dance forms may choose to regard instead.

Kundalini Yoga, the Yoga of Awareness, was brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan in 1968. Through the practice of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation your glandular and nervous systems are stimulated into balance, and your capacity for creativity and connection is heightened. You gain inner vitality to compensate for the adverse effects of stress so you can excel in life. Kundalini Yoga is practiced to give you an experience of your own infinity. Through Kundalini Yoga and Meditation you begin to harness the universal energy, prana, in order to direct the mind towards the reality of the soul.
3. Mystic Rising Mudra Therapy Workshop:
Mudras and Mantras for Planetary Power.
In this workshop we will literally learn to dance with planetary energies that are available to us in our daily lives. We will explore the relationship between the seven planetary energies and our daily, weekly, monthly and yearly cycles. Most significantly you will experience seven “planetary” meditations to harness the seven potent energies and protect yourself from negative planetary influences, as well as lear a variety of mantras and mudras to activate your creativity, prosperity and innate healing powers.

4. BreathPlay for Tantric Alchemy
The practice of conscious breathing is the single most essential component of the alchemical corpus. This workshop will focus on Tantric BreathPlay for connection, alchemy and self-cultivation. Drawing from Kundalini Yoga and other wisdom praxis we will uncover our own unique relationship to the breath of life and explore the multiple pathways (nadis), vayus (winds), and elements that lead to a fulfilling breathing practice.
As Anna Halpern profoundly states, “Dance (or yoga/movement) is the breath made visible.” Come experience how reality manifest from the unseen to the manifest with every breath we take both in our own space and with others. Breathwork, yoga/ movement, mudra, mantra, and contact improvisation are all possible components to this class. Come with an open heart and ready to dive deep into your being.

Reggae Ashae is a completely new practice born out of my love for yoga, capoeira and high-vibe reggae music. There are elements of African dance in the warm-up, with strong core transitions worked into a flow that strengthens the body so that capoeira movements can flow from the body like waves on the tide.

Also, I incorporate a 1 hour yoga class with 30 min Thai massage in the end.

Taught by: Joshua “Jai” Masters
I am certified in AcroYoga (easily accessible partner acrobatics with a yoga consciousness) and certified in Slackline Yoga (yoga poses on a dynamic 1 inch wide piece of flat rope, [think yoga on a stretchy tightrope].
AcroYoga is a partner yoga practice that combines dynamic and therapeutic acrobatics with a yogic concentration. AcroYoga is accessible to everyone and does not require any previous yoga experience. Included in my workshops are partner trust building exercises, playful games that increase body awareness and connection to others, and therapeutic elements of massage and passive stretching.
Slackline Yoga is the art of practicing yoga poses on a dynamic (slightly stretchy) 1-inch wide piece of flat rope. It will bring your yoga practice to a whole new level, literally hovering just above the ground. Beginners will find that slackasana (slackline yoga) demands a greater yogic focus of breath, body awareness, and drishti (focus point) than is required on a normal 4ft by 6ft yoga mat. Slackline Yoga is a fun and playful way to introduce yogic concepts to beginners as well as challenge advanced practitioners alike.
Taught by: Terence “Link” Zampino
Vinyasa Flow, Dance Yoga, Dance Expression, Modern Dance, and other dance styles.
I have been a dancer since I was 3 years old, and went on to study dance performance and choreography in college. I love to use the traditional asanas and give them my dance-like twist. I focus a lot on the transition between each movement to accentuate the fact that yoga is a dance to my students. I give a lot of variations to allow my students to feel the freedom of expression in their bodies. I have the gift of seeing the world through my body and I try to help my students shift into that perspective.
Taught by: Hanna Winters

Taught by: Jai
Acroyoga is a partner acrobatic yoga practice with two or more people, two people being more simple. The roles in acroyoga consist of a base, the anchor of the asanas, the support. The base is usually on his back with his legs straight up supporting the flyer atop his feet in an “L” position. The flyer is the role that is performing much of the asana, being moved from one pose to another by the base through various transitions.
Taught by: Thomas Moore
I am certified in Hatha, but I draw inspiration from years of practicing kundalini, ashtanga, anusata, sivanada and Bhakti yoga. I have also studied acro/partner yoga and Thai massage.

Taught by: Cassandra Davis
Thai massage workshops accompanied by a quartz crystal bowl sound bath, we are so excited to travel with a full 7 piece XL quartz crystal bowl set, that can also be played during the restorative, Hatha, and Vinyasa flow yoga classes I am able to offer
The yoga that I teach stems from my love of connecting mind, body and spirit. The healing that I have witnessed as a result of deeper connection with the self is incredible, and I enjoy helping people open up to that connection through laughter, elements of dance and unrestricted movement woven in with Vinyasa flow and Hatha techniques and poses. I like to have a balance in my classes where we do a fair amount of energy release followed by slower poses that help with reflection and re-centering. I love props, and enjoy helping students find comfort and strength in each pose, I am able to manuver around the class to help with hands on adjustments and cues while teaching.
Taught by: Nickelle Dirrett
I teach Hatha, Vinyasa, Power Vinyasa, Yin, Slow Flow, Kundalini Yoga and medicine wheel yoga.
I can teach in many different styles and adapt well to the general level of the students.

I focus on good alignment, but also like to talk about the science, energetics and philosophy of yoga.
Taught by: Ram Rai
I like to encorporate howling, shaking, laughing and screaming into some of my larger outdoor classes. Other than that, the asanas are all very traditional.
Taught by: Shawn “Drew” Wall
Hatha/Vinyasa – Mindful flow beginner through advanced
I teach a mixture of hatha/vinyasa yoga, containing meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), and asanas (poses), mindfully sculpted into a sequence that will leave you feeling present and at peace with yourself and your surroundings.
Taught by: Adam Vaughn
My offering as a teacher is focused on healing. While I believe that all yogic modalities are “healing”, my approach is focused specifically on how to utilize pranayama and asana for stress relief. Stress relief could range from minor day-to-day or in easing the extremes of PTSD.
While I am able to teach a range of “styles” I would say my technique and modality is unique. As I have a direct focus of therapeutic work in mind as I teach; my approach is to create a strengthening yet supportive class that truly is accessible to all. I work with physical ailments as well as psychological, therefor I am comfortable with making classes truly available to all as I teach to finding the individual’s space in a place or a breath as opposed to having the student adapt to me. I adapt to the individual and I confidently can do this in a group setting by watching, and listening to each of my students.
As a woman who has suffered trauma, depression, eating disorders and just recently survived third stage cancer while pregnant with my third daughter; my priorities are to use my wounds to heal others.

Hatha Vinyassa Flow with Anna Combi
I am dedicated to opening the heart and cultivating deep connection to ones physical, spiritual and emotional bodies in my yoga classes. My classes are designed to empower, inspire and creating a healing flow that enables participants to drop in deep with their true nature embodying their connection to source, oneness with nature and liberation from trauma stored in the body.

Hatha Yoga – Alignment focused, Therapeutic Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Subtle Body workshops, and Thai Yoga Bodywork
I teach yoga through the lens of contemplation and insight, with meditation as a core principle. My passion is to make each asana accessible for each individual, challenging the more advanced students with deeper alignment detail and working with beginners to meet them where they are at. I specialize in deep therapeutic yogic experiences and injury recovery. What makes my classes unique is my capacity to guide the students into a deeper, somatic body experience while using the template of yoga postures to access stored memories and trauma that need released. I use anatomy and alignment verbal cues and hands on adjustments to facilitate this process.

Yin/restorative, therapeutic, Gentle, slow flow, all accompanied by live sacred music & chant provided by Johanna Beekman Music and her band.
My modality incorporates Nad Yoga, the yoga of sound into Asana practice to provide deep release.
I have toured national yoga studios & festivals (Pranafest, Bhakti Fest, Shakti Fest, One Love Experience, Beloved Sacred Art and Music Festival, Unify, and more) with my special restorative yoga with sound healing class called Lullaby Yoga (restorative yoga with live heart opening music).
Johanna Beekman’s Lullaby Yoga is a unique blend of restorative and yin yoga with heart-opening live music. Her class focuses on deep relaxation and healing, using principles from therapeutic yoga, yoga nidra, and nada yoga (yoga of sound). In Lullaby Yoga, Johanna gently guides participants through a series of deeply relaxing poses while singing to them. The music—a soothing blend of original and traditional pieces from a variety of global cultures—facilitates the healing process by providing a luxurious, peaceful space for the mind to rest while the body relaxes, rebalances, and restores itself. Johanna has taught Lullaby Yoga classes at yoga studios, spas, and festivals across the US. She occasionally leads a heart-opening kirtan followed immediately by an extended Lullaby Yoga cool-down.

I teach alignment based vinyasa, “yoga with weights”, and “athlete’s yoga”.
My classes typically involve several flows of long holds in each pose, with lots of cuing and alignment instruction. I then repeat the flows, linking each pose to breath. Intermixed is deep stretching. Instead of limiting stretching to the beginning and end of class, I’ve found that it allows for an active recovery period to regain breath and reconnect the mind and body when throwing out some intense stretching right after a challenging flow. I like to stress the amazing power of the mind, the wonder of the body’s capability, and how we are all stronger than we think we are. I want every student to leave each class with a yoga high; knowing that they can master anything.
I offer modifications and variations throughout so each class is available to all levels.
I am very big on recognizing ego and reaching a pose that is correctly aligned and appropriate for the student’s body–really feeling what the body needs in that moment. I find myself moving toward a vinyasa-yin fusion class lately.
My athletic class focuses on stretching of the hamstrings, back, arms, and torso. I incorporate props, such as a basketball, in poses and in stretching. This class is for the athlete that is new to yoga. A 60 minute class would be about 30 minutes of stretching with 30 minutes of flow–longer holds and a lot of alignment cues. I like to stress isometric holds in this class to target muscle groups. I am currently training to add in a foam rolling component.
I teach a class on “yoga with weights”, using 1 and 2 pound free weights. This series is currently on hold while the space is being used.

Here is a description of this art. What I do is a very beautiful internal journey.

Three Harmony Qigong is a blend of Taoist and Buddhist tantric energy practices that enhance ones awareness and integration of the physical, energetic, and spiritual natures of our Being. It is an art that utilizes the intent, the breath, and relaxed fluid movement to create a calm, natural, balanced flow of energy that can improve one’s health and spiritual journey. Qigong is a way to listen, enhance, and understand the flow of your internal, or intrinsic, energy (qi/prana) and cultivate your spiritual energy (shen).
It is a blend of Taoist and Buddhist yoga, which is called qigong in those sects, which really focus on the intrinsic energy in one body and is a flowing moving art where the breath is married to the movements and the mind focuses on visually seeing the energy moving in the body and we use “Ting Jing” (a form of deep listening) to guide the chi/prana. So more internal than most forms of yoga.

Hatha/Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative
I teach a Hatha/Vinyasa flow, often incorporating Yin or Restorative into the second half of the class. While the yoga flow is typical for Vinyasa, I add unique themes to the classes to encourage full union through the class. I also try to use live musicians to help with the flow of the class.
Taught by: Cassandra Galbier
I offer Tantra yoga as well as Partner Tantra Yoga.
I see it as definitely different, as it is a slower, more internal practice, that, instead of being focused on perfect alignment, is focused on how each body feels in each pose, attempting to find relaxation within the pose, not pushing to go as far as possible. The tantra practice itself can be as long as 4 hours! (but of course as short as 1 as well). The partner practice takes it all a step further, as it is more of an external version of the practice, where you are supporting and being supported by your partner. We create a connection with an opening ritual and movement to music, then throughout the practice finding ourselves diving deeply not only into the postures and ourselves, but another person as well. It creates a really beautiful connection. It’s like acroygoa but without the acrobatics.

I teach vinyasa yoga and am very deeply into my own meditation and yoga practices, my sadhana. I teach meditation to people in a drug abuse recovery program, I have taught kid’s yoga, but mostly I teach adults. Yoga and meditation are my entire life! I also study esoteric subject matter obsessively, these subjects are my passion! 🙂 My website is JayneForest.com
When I teach yoga I always express that yoga is a breathing exercise, a moving meditation. With that as the focus, I do have a passion for physical intensity that I balance with ease. I have a sense of humor in my classes, I connect with everyone through physical touch, eye contact and smiles, and I make the intention to empower and uplift all of the people who practice with me.
Taught by: Jayne Forest
My style of teaching is definitely unique and eclectic. I borrow from different styles and modalities and each class is different. What I do best is to help facilitate feeling more love and presence, and less worry, stress and negative self-talk. People leave feeling better, and that’s what I’m here for.

Vinyasa Bhakti Yoga, Yin Yoga, Beginners Yoga…meditation/pranayama
All I can say is that I teach yoga from the heart, and from what I know and have learned from great teachers. I have studied beginners yoga & Bhakti Yoga. Bhakti, is devotional yoga, the more “spiritually” minded practice, that involves kirtan, meditation & pranayama, ((heart centered)) The modality is different because no yoga teacher will have the same practice to share, I teach from my truth…
Taught by: Tara Clark
Hatha Yoga & Meditation, Intro to Acro Yoga, Plant Medicine Yoga
In my classes, I teach students to move and breath form the heart, to stand in their strength and to step into their authentic being. I have been often told that my classes are incredibly informative, as though they are a workshop. In addition to asana, I always offer mantra, mudra, pranayama and meditation so that I am honoring the full spectrum wisdom within this sacred scientific system. I often offer mythical stories, philosophical insight or reference to sacred texts. I lead with love and provide a life affirming gathering!
Taught by: Meggan Riley
Mainly Vinyasa yoga for all-levels. I also enjoy teaching Hatha yoga and Budokon yoga (imagine yoga and martial arts had a baby).
I teach a creative flow class with a blend of alignment cues and space for self-reflection and guidance. Usually I will start class with some authentic story about my life that leads to a teaching for us to consider while we move. I might share a poem or short piece of writing that relates and then I’ll weave the concept throughout class. Music playlists are super important to me- they must be good.
We may do a pranayama breath practice first and then we’ll warm up and start to build from the ground up to a series of poses that eventually expands into a highlighted pose or genre of poses (i.e. backbends, hip-openers, etc.). I’ve been told my sequencing and classes are subtly challenging but still sweet and fun.
I like for students to be free, to take up space, make noise, breath loudly and modify anything that they need to without worrying about me. I read each person as we go to make sure we’re all on the same page and I like for my language to be fresh and present- not rehearsed.
I give time for lunar poses and savasana so there can be rest and healing and possibly more magical inner wisdom to witness. I like to keep it light-hearted and to practice with purpose.
Taught by: Alysa Romano
I offer a wide variety of experiences, all of which incorporate elements of flow, rhythm, and play. My favorite classes to teach are Shake Your Asana (“Where Yoga and Dance meet up to play), YinYasa, Morning Movement, Rock N Roll Vinyasa, Reggae Flow, Yoga Nidra, Candlelight Yin/Restorative and Prenatal/Mamas Yoga. You can read more about these offerings at yogawithcarinanow.com.
My style is warm, light and refreshing. My intention with each class is to help people peel back the layers of stress, anxiety and fear which block the natural state of joy. I provide equal focus on breath, alignment, connection to spirit and play. I aim for each student to have an experience that is physically dynamic, introspective, connected to their highest self, and for them to leave feeling deeply relaxed, lighter, and happy in body, mind and heart.
Taught by: Carina O’Toole
I primarily teach therapeutic Hatha yoga. I incorporate pranayama, mantras, sound with movement, contemplative practices and mindfulness meditations.
The yoga I offer is a combination of primarily Hatha, flow, Kundalini, and other movement modalities such as Qigong. The style I enjoy teaching is slow, steady and very strengthening. I take time in each posture to focus on breath and alignment. Asana integrity is very important to me. I include a gentle warm-up, an invigorating “climax” and soothing cool down. Thank you!

JOURNEYOGA & SHAMANIC SHAVASANA
JourneYoga is a ritual of body, mind and spirit. Weaving together the ancients rivers of yoga and shamanism, JourneYoga creates a sacred container for surrender by honoring the Soul of the Earth and Adventure by Connecting with the Great Spirit within all of Life while diving into an Enchanted World where balance arises. It is at once an intensely physical and internally focused practice and also joyful, playful and energetic.
I blend yoga and shamanism:
Power is not found by forcing ourselves, but rather by finding our Self. If you want to improve the state of your being, and the state of the world, you’ve got to go on a Journey. A pilgrimage to the center of your soul, where awaits your total empowerment and joyful enlightenment. JourneYoga is designed to help you take this journey, one sacred movement at a time.
– MOVEMENT teaches how to love the skin you live in, calling your spirit home again with joy and strength of expression.
– MEDITATION brings you into connection with your higher self, your inner guru who knows best how to guide you.
– MEANING facilitates personal breakthroughs to open the heart and let your spirit come through, as you.
JourneYoga ends with a seductive, sweet shamanic shavasana to live drumming and medicinal chanting.
Taught by: Holly Baade
The style of yoga I am certified to teach is called Radiant Health Yoga, which focuses on using yoga as a holistic health modality. I can teach both fast paced vinyasa classes, as well as relaxing/restorative/yin style classes, and I often combine both energies into one class to create a well balanced practice.
The style of yoga I teach is different in that I am very focused on using yoga to improve overall health and wellbeing, there is a big emphasis on injury prevention, breathwork and meditation. I also love to incorporate sound healing into my classes, both with tuning forks and singing bowls, guided meditation, chanting and self acupressure for wellness.

This workshop in Beginning Acroyoga
will give you the tools you’ll need if you are looking to begin your practice, or continue your current practice, in a safe and effective way. By the end of this workshop you will understand the basics of counterbalance, bone-stacking, and safe flying/basing. Come with a partner or come alone. A lot of acroyoga is done with a partner, whether you know them, or not! Bring your mat, and a positive, friendly attitude, and you’ll leave with all the tools you’ll need to continue practicing Acroyoga.
About Sean Gerhardt: Sean & Paige began their acroyoga practice together in 2015 after meeting at a class in Ashland, OR. They started teaching shortly after, and eventually formed the performance duo ‘Duoflo Acro’. Since then, they have taught and performed in multiple locations around the U.S. Their style of acroyoga is unique because of their ability to connect deeper through non-verbal cues. Each participant will be given the opportunity to further understand their body and how they can connect to a partner.

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.

Ishka was born in 1982, and grew up in northern California. She loved to draw ever since she was a little girl, even if it meant getting carsick on long road trips with her family because she was so focused on her sketchpad. Her talent advanced as she got older, but she felt it was necessary to pursue a career that assured more financial stability. Society had taught her too much about the starving artist. And so, she sought study for a profession that was highly useful in society that would also require her artistic skill.
Six years later, she graduated from California Polytechnic State University with a professional bachelors degree in architecture.
During her fourth year in college, Ishka spent a year studying abroad in France, and traveled all over Western Europe. Her experience of life outside the U.S. transformed her entire perception of art, architecture, and community; and it was then that she became much more certain of her path, both as an artist and an architectural designer.
Everything came to a climax in this little town she visited on the southern coast of Portugal—one of the last trips she made before returning to the states. In the hostel she stayed in, twenty complete strangers from all over the world had somehow come together as one big family. For the first time, Ishka experienced the miracle of coming together with people she had never met as though they had somehow known each other for lifetimes. Miracles began happening everyday; or, maybe it was that Ishka was finally allowing them to happen, and be a witness to them.
A rose, long-awaited, bloomed in her heart, and Ishka began to recognize God in all beings. She awakened to a Great Love for herself and everyone around her. This shift in her awareness marked the inception of a life long spiritual journey!
When she returned to California, she dedicated her next year of college studying as much as she could about natural building techniques and eco-village design, and developed her thesis around it. The architecture program had included aspects of green building over the years, but Ishka’s hunger for it and her interest in intentional community living intensified exponentially after her trip overseas. Moreover, her passion for art was renewed with a vehemence and sense of freedom all too wild and magnificent to describe any other way than to draw it. She no longer felt inhibited by the stigmas society had put on her greatest gift.
After graduation, Ishka made a solid commitment to her practice as an artist, and architecture would be her mistress. Ishka has since embarked on many other travels in North America and abroad, exploring and expanding her participation as a true citizen of the world. She uses every opportunity available to absorb spiritual guidance and inspiration for her art, and foster her development and dedication to community building and lifestyle.

“Art has become a method for hacking my inner firewall, helping me to connect with my authentic self despite the schwirl of culturally induced delusions. Making my art has granted me gradual access to a more integrated and multidimensional reality.I think the most powerful thing we can accomplish with our work is to inspire each other to accept responsibility for the liberation of oneself from the social conditioning of previous generations and the prevailing ignorance of our cultural story; to dismantle who we were falsely taught that we are and find the unique creative identity within.My intention for my work, beyond personal healing, is to reflect a simple Truth — That the Universe is made of a profound Love beyond human categories, and that inter-collectively, we are One Being, One Consciousness.”
