Practice to the rhythm of music and breath. Allow inner wisdom to rise up from within! The Yang Dragon Dance is a hybrid of East Indian + Daoist Yoga. Through mindful awareness of breath, movement and intention, it stimulates the flow of energy (prana or chi). The Intention: Create a deep connection within + better serve our community. The Practice: An invigorating and energizing flow that works every muscle, while increasing flexibility of the mind and body. Jenelle instructs and builds the Yang Dragon Dance in cycles and stages until we come face to face with the Fire Breathing Dragon. This leads into a more introspective, “Taming of the Dragon,” a YIN sequence, which involves a series of long, deep hip openers and the most well deserved savasana ever. Amy will create a live underscore for the class by layering mantras with rhythmic guitar and vocals. This hypnotic blend of sound elevates a quiet internal consciousness releasing the mind and allowing the body and breath to move freely. Amy calls it “Ancient Trip-Hop.” Music for Practice. Music for Prayer. Music for the Spirit. Join the rhythm and rise, Friday March 17th, for this magical evening with Amy and Jenelle. *The Dragon Dance is inspired by the teachings of Paul and Suzee Grilley. Jenelle first experienced this practice in 2013 with her Yin Teacher, Bernie Clark in Vancouver, BC. A few months later he announced a class taking place, set to the music of Pink Floyd. Jenelle’s love for classic rock and the practice lead her to comment on how she wished she was in Vancouver to experience it. Bernie encouraged her to connect with and share the practice herself. This is the sign of a truly amazing teacher. Thus a new passion project was born…one which unites the Yang Dragon Dance and Yin Yoga to different vinyl soundscapes, themes and now…LIVE MUSIC. Amy & Jenelle have been collaborating on yoga workshops, trainings and retreats since 2013.
