Intuitive Movemeant

Movement is the universal language and allows people to fully express themselves freely. Movement teaches us that art comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, and forms. In this workshop we will close our eyes and tune into our bodies and flow, meditate, dance! The workshop will begin with a meditation where we tune inwards and open the space for the body to receive the movement it truly needs/wants. We will then move through a yoga flow giving the opportunity to move freely in any poses that feels good in the body. The workshop ends with an intuitive dance where eyes are closed and I hold space for everyone to move however they wish in an open, judgement free space. Movement is my creative expression and it is my passion to be able to share this with everyone and hold space for for someone to tune in, tune out, let go, and M O V E.

This is such a beautiful workshop being able to watch people who aren't comfortable in their bodies-be completely vulnerable by opening up and moving into a space of confidence and self love. Movement inspires me more than anything, including dance, yoga, and flow arts. I love moving my body in nature, especially at the beach or surrounded by a canopy of trees deep in the woods. I also am deeply inspired by the Earth and all the herbs and plant medicine she provides.

LOVE THY OHM

I want to teach a 75 min Vinyasa class with some Yin at the end. In my yoga flow, we will connect to the divine through our hearts and allow our physical practice to awaken and transfer energy throughout the body.

Preferably saturday morning around 10 to 12. or anytime that works.Andre

I am originally from Brazil. I have been teaching yoga for little over a year now and I would never imagine It would be something I make a career of. Teaching yoga aligns with my goal in life to spread love and be love. After some time teaching I came to the realization I am here to help other heals and connect to the divine within.

Here is a link to my yoga FB page & IG:

Origami Workshop

Come learn to fold a figure.

Saturday NoonWestley

Born and raised in the hub of Seattle, Washington, Wesley Geometry has always
been fascinated in the matrix of nature. He innocently started folding paper airplanes at
6 years old, and it wasn’t long before airplanes evolved into dinosaurs. Then dinosaurs
evolved into flowers, which eventually evolved into what the viewer is seeing today.
Once Sacred Geometry came into play in 2011, his childhood hobby quickly turned into
a driving passion for expression, and the name Wesley Geometry was born.
2013 quickly came around and he was first featured in Art Basel at Moksha Art
Gallery (Miami, FL). After an amazing turnout, he followed with doing volunteer work for
The Spine Abifida Foundation in demonstrating origami and the art of paper folding to
kids with disability.
His work also continued through doing live demos nationwide at Zen Awakening
Festival (Orlando, FL), Gratifly Art Fest (South Carolina), Kinnection Campout Art Fest
(South Carolina), and Jade Buddha Art Fest (Miami, FL). He was also featured at Snap!
Gallery in Orlando, FL in 2014 and 2015.
Since his beginnings with paper, his vision has expanded to work with mediums that are
more versatile and useable. The formats in which these mediums are used, expand
onto sculpture, jewelry, interior design, and wearable art (high fashion).
His process has been as such where as any artist, would love to collaborate
more, on any medium one hasn’t played with yet. Performance Art has always been a
vision of his in working with dance in particular, and with theater as a high school love,
he would be more than thrilled to jump into the contemporary performance world. Like
any childhood dream, he loves what he does. The awe and wonderment he brings to
everyone, child and adult alike, is what drives him.

Please bring your folding fingers and a good attitude.
