Rire is an established working DJ rising 15 years, and many years behind the scenes as a music industry professional, RIA knows music! Kiwi born and bred the choice to pursue a career in yoga as a teacher changed everything. She has worked with internationally recognised teachers such as Kara-Leah Grant and Sarah-Jane Perman. Combined with the launch of her Yoga-Dance collaboration YogaRhythmsTribe.com the focus was shifted to utilise her musical know-how to facilitate ecstatic dance and conscious movement journeys –with the odd party set thrown in for good measure! "I call on all elements of mind, body and spirit to create a set. It's a conscious intention to design an emotive journey that travels through peaks and troughs. Each journey aims to inspire healing and activate unity and connection. I strive to source and mix music you can not only hear, but feel.”–RIA
