Join Yoga of Bass founder Claire Thompson for an Ecstatic Bass session with Claire’s yoga asana, free movement, deep stretch sequence. Infused with inspiration and humour, Yoga of Bass brings the full-frequency sound of a festival main stage sound system to your yoga practice, impacting all the chakras and immersing you in music.
Claire is joined by world-renowned producers Desert Dwellers. Participants can expect to start with connecting to their bodies and breath, as well as the earth and sky that is our yoga studio here on the festival grounds. In a sequence that moves up the chakras, we will loosen and empower physical areas with stretch and free movement. Yoga flow leads to free dance, and then we ground all those wild energies with a Bass Healing. The end of the class is meditative and heart opening, encouraging people to recognise their goodness and connection with this beautiful community. Also, there's a lot of laughing. :-)
Suitable for: adults only
Duration: 90 minutes
Presenters: Claire Thompson and Desert Dwellers
