If you couldn’t make it along to the Wildings Halloween Event, here is the video and photo review. Video shot on the 31st of October in Grey Lynn, by Jen @ ClairObscur. We’re thrilled to be finally releasing this to the WORLD to show you what we do!
The YogaRhythms Experience is an all encompassing, interactive, fun fusion of yoga with world-driven beats, for a guided journey through connectedness, radical self-expression, movement and unity. YogaRhythms is a New Zealand Based Interactive Yoga Dance Collective. Yoga and dance are one and the same – breath-led movement designed to free our souls.

What the people had to say….
“It was such a divine experience. It was the perfect harmony of Yoga, Dance, Rhythm, Movement, Breath and Flow. The amazing Kara-Leah Grant took us on a journey where you were able to completely let go of the outside world and blissfully melt into the present moment – energy flowing through the body and upwards – connected to Self, connected to each other, connected to the Earth, on an all natural high, collectively pulsing and vibing to the raddest tribal beats and tunes by the music Goddess Le Rire . I loved every moment and left totally buzzing and filled with Prana ♡” – Rebecca White
“WOW what an incredibly freeing and wild experience we had Friday night at the Grey lynn community centre. Tribal bass , yoga and dancing are a few of my favourite things and to have them combined and facilitated by the beautiful powerhouse that is Karah-Leah Grant was just plain epic! Our energies were soaring afterward – full frothing! xxx” – Tara Cornelia
“What can I say apart from Wow!! It was just a great harmony between yoga, dance and flow!! It made me feel so alive, by the end of it I was buzzing naturally!! What I loved so much was how we were just practicing great yoga lead by Kara-Leah and then it just flowed into beautiful dance with epic music from RIA… ( really amazing tunes ). The transition of yoga to dance flowed so smoothly I didn’t know I was actually already dancing and really feeling the music!!
Thanks so much.,,, I really loved the vibe and can’t wait for more!! I’m totally hooked!!” – Laurie Flint
“I have to say – practicing yoga to music is a divine experience, especially when the selection has been made by someone who knows what they are doing. It was that much easier to let go of the outside world and melt into the breath, the moment, the body, the rhythm. As the energy spiralled up and up toward the peak of ecstatic movement, flinging ourselves around while maintaining connection to the earth and to each other, was a new kind of high that I haven’t experienced before. I am well-versed in losing myself to music, to my body – but Kara-Leah led us down a path that was entirely fresh – the key was in the connection. We danced while looking each other in the eyes. We moved outward and inward, and it felt beyond good to be so loose and wild while pulsing only to the inner fire – no other stimulants necessary (we-ell, except for the complementary glass of ayurvedic go-go juice handed out at the start).
My face hurt from grinning so hard. My body was sparked up with a healthy dose of prana. I left on a total high, and even thinking back on it gives me a buzz.
Thanks once again, you two sparkling beauties, for inviting us in and leading us along such a vivid journey.” Hannah Schenter

We were blessed to meet Ramin Krause, who is not only an exceptional photographer, but he’s also an entrepreneurial traveler currently moving around NZ, sleeping in a hammock and documenting his journey along the way. He was so keen on Wildlings, he hitched in from out west, and rocked up to the gig with a giant pack and camera in hand. He also joined us on our adventure to Waiheke. Ramin Krause, born 1994, is a photographer from Cologne, Germany that currently lives with Hippies in New Zealand.
Check out his incredible work HERE. Thank you Noodles!
