WAIHEKE: 1st of NOVEMBER, Palm Beach Hall – TICKETS

-Dress To Express-

 

We’re kicking off summer with a Halloween style yoga experience that will have you spooked with pleasure. After a big start to 2014 performing festivals such as Splore and Wanderlust, YogaRhythms is pleased to announce a transformation from a dynamic duo to cultural collective utilizing prolific teachers, musicians and performing artists to join DJ R.I.A at the musical helm.

 

Original counterpart Sarah Jane Perman AKA ‘Yoga With SJ’ is taking on the world with her desirable yoga retreats and wellness work, so YogaRhythms has opened up it’s arms to join forces with new teachers to keep the love, light and music alive down under. (keep in touch with SJ at http://www.sarahjaneperman.com)

 

YogaRhythms is thrilled to be working with respected teacher, writer, and speaker, Kara-Leah Grant from theyogalunchbox.co.nz, who will guide the experience through two events of mind, body and soul stimulation. Not only is she an inspiring teacher, she has also trained with world-renowned global yoga goddess Shiva Rea in the art of Trance Dance. She is also one of the local talents teaching and speaking at next years Wanderlust Festival at Great Lake Taupo.
“I spent most of my 20s dancing – in nightclubs, at raves & outdoor parties and at sporting events and experienced firsthand the powerful transformative energies of the dance. When I practiced yoga at home, it often spun out into dance – something I was afraid wasn’t “real yoga”, and even felt guilty doing. Then I discovered Shiva’s teaching of Prana Flow & Yoga Trance Dance™.”
– Kara Leah Grant, Yoga Lunchbox

 

YogaRhythms 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. Yoga and dance are one and the same – breath-led movement designed to free our souls.

 

YogaRhythms will also be playing Splore & Sundaize Festival this Summer.

 

This is going to be 2 x nights to remember. Space is strictly limited, so don’t miss out. Grab your tickets and reserve you mat space. Special thanks to WE’AR, Zrii, Subtropica & YogaLunchbox

A couple of ‘Must haves’ for the playlist..

About (ME) R.I.A (aka rireinaction.com) She’s a fun-loving, genre jumping DJ whose infectious energy, musical knowledge and Dj pedigree unfailingly shines through in her sets.  An established working DJ, industry professional and radio announcer rising 12 years, her diverse range of musical flavor has seen her grace many cultures and circles right across the globe.   Her natural ability to amplify or soften a mood as a DJ is charismatic. Not shy to stick her fingers in pies, she works under multiple guises such at The Play DJS, YogaRhythms and Future Movement www.rireinaction.com

About Kara-Leah Grant: Kara-Leah was the most inflexible person in the class when she started yoga – she couldn’t touch her knees, let alone her toes. Consistent and regular practice helped her heal chronic back issues and now she is both bendy and pain-free. When she experienced two episodes of psychosis in 2004, it was her yoga practice that helped her put the fragmented parts of her psyche back together. These experiences taught her how to claim her own power, connect to her internal wisdom and step into spontaneous flow. Now, this is what she teaches on the mat, writes about in her books and on her website. Kara-Leah is the publisher and editor of The Yoga Lunchbox, New Zealand’s most popular yoga website. She has been invited to teach and speak at Wanderlust Great Lake Taupo in 2015, New Zealand’s biggest mindful, yoga and music festival. Already a successful published author, this is Kara-Leah’s second book. Her first, Forty Days of Yoga, was published last year and has just gone into its third print run. http://www.theyogalunchbox.co.nz

Big weekend of music in my favorite South Island City. It’s not that glamorous these days, but that’s what gives it edge.  No matter what people say about it, Christchurch rocks. It’s got heart, and the people there no how to party. I love the venues and the attitude of the people down there. There’s no boundaries for creativity at events there’s stylish bars have popped up everywhere flanking the quake torn city center.

I’ll be teaming back up with my bass-girl C:SHE for our first Play DJS gig for the season! Check out our mix from Rhythms and Alps last year… And guess what, we’re booked again for this year.. WHOOP!

If your down that way come and see me, or listen out on the radio!

Friday 10-1am – R.I.A The Monday Room

Saturday 4-6Pm – R.I.A & C: SHE The Green Room on RDU Radio with Nacoa

The Colours of Bali

30 Jun

Bali is such a wonderful, inspiring, magical place and I was lucky enough to capture some of it’s beauty with our new Canon G16 camera. Enjoy the colours of Bali through the eyes of this lovely little lens.

Reflection at the Departure Gates

25 Jun

Wild mane, no-make up selfie at Denpasar Airport. (I hope the image has stuck as I’m blogging on iPhone)

Have not worn make up, bras or shoes for 15 days. I have lived in sarongs and yoga clothes and have eaten mostly clean organic foods, as well as little or no alcohol. I’ve had chronic diarrhoea and spewing bugs, done copious amounts of yoga and explored the rich and diverse culture Bali has to offer.

I’m about to fly home to NZ and reflecting on my time with feelings of lightness, openness and inspiration.

Yoga has taught me I have very small importance and significance in the earths greater function, yet I have the biggest opportunity to touch, move and inspire my communities, simply by being inspired. For me, to be a living example of LOVE is success. Can, this be achieved? I know so.

Despite the ups and downs, highs and lows of life, it’s all part of being human. Through yoga I’ve learned it’s ok to feel stuff, to be with my pain, my awkwardness, my insecurities and accept it.

Now I can look at all those things without judgement. I’ve learnt so much more about my truths, my triggers and those things that have the tendency to zap me from my bliss.

I’m humbled by these teachings and the enormity of what there is to learn and absorb, and how little I actually know.

I know inspiration comes and goes, but now I have the tools to reflect and understand what’s going on for me in those moments of sadness or frustration.

The best thing about it all is that; I feel like I’m finally starting to live my truth and found my ‘dharma’ – it only took 35 years!

Massive amounts of love and respect to my incredible 200 hour yoga classmates. Your love and friendship has been unreal, and I know we will know each other for life.

Power living Australia – I had no idea what I was getting myself into and my expectations were well and truly blown out of the water… You guys are total pros and I Love you for creating such an incredible community and challenging program to share your vast knowledge and wisdom.

And again my mum and my man – couldn’t have done this without you believing in me and being there for me.

Thank you! Love you all!! Namaste xxx

‘THOUGHTS ON SERENITY’ (from the little book of knowledge at Soma cafe, Ubud)

‘In truly knowing love, you have set all things free, for love does not judge or condemn or control.

Love extends to all things without reservation, attachment exclusivity and limit.

Love is one. It looks on all as one.

Strive only to break free from limitations, and recline in the peace of knowing your wholeness exists in the power holding LOVE eternally as one.’

My farther has been banging on about this love thing since I was small, and I think I’m only beginning to understand what it really means…

Ubud Expression Session – Day One

15 Jun

I am blogging more than ever on this trip. Don’t know why. Just feel like it. Writing for me is like a natural occurrence when the words build up so much the have to spill out like a fountain. It’s also like chocolate. The more you blog the more you seem to want to do it. This is also one of the most exciting times of my life going into a transformational phase of life that is going to change the course of my life forever.

It’s 7AM. I have wandered up the road in my sarong and jandels to find wifi. I have my laptop, which seems like a dinosaur in today’s travel culture. Everyone else has Ipads, I like my laptop, but it’s a drag to lug around – I need it for music. Can’t be without music, and of course, handy for skypeing.

Just as well because the bank froze all my cards, so I’ve been without cashflow for 2 days. Funny how the animal instinct in me goes into hustle mode weaving around what would usually cost to either delay spending or borrow some money.  You’ll be pleased to know I didn’t die and the world kept turning, and lucky for me I pre-paid a bunch of yoga sessions at The Yoga Barn. I have linked up with a pair of beautiful kiwi gals who have been my posse for the last 24 hours, and Nikki graciously lent me some cash.  Nikki from Wanaka and Kathleen from Wellington, both on the 500 hour teacher training which is happening the same time as our 200 hour TT with Power Living.   We met at the Yoga Barn where all mindful yoga aspirants seem to gather, making that our base. So much incredible stuff going on there, it’s over-whelming.

So I wanted to tell you about my day yesterday to paint a picture on this incredible location.

I arrived at 8.10am and unfortunately missed the morning flow class, but that was ok, because I manged to slip into Tai Chi with an English man named Dave West. He promptly said when we entered the room, forget everything you want your body to feel if you practice yoga and RELAX. Wow. I went to a new dimension in relaxation. I learned about how to harness the chi flow and gently move with intuitive motion. The great thing is (with my martial arts background) is that each move ie; ‘Parting the horses mane’ and ‘White crane spreads wings’ is actually a radical self defense move in slow motion.   I want more of this! So great. If anyone is coming to Bali you can check him out here http://taichibali.com/ Dave West.

Then I bumped into my kiwi girls and spend a few hours catching up on line, having an admin session on bank admin which failed to succeed, then found some accommodation which has a pool and is like a temple on the inside. My room has a view of the pool out the front, and the rice paddies behind, all for approx $30 NZD per night.

Ubud is incredible, every second place is built like a temple. The culture up here is mostly Hindu and everywhere you go is the smell of insense, the roar of scooters, the crowing of roosters, and tiny bamboo plates of ‘offerings’.  Ubud is haven for artistic talent. there are galleries on every corner offering vibrant paintings, carving and crafts. The people are so friendly and helpful too.

Ok, so the yoga. Yes – Went to a vinyasa flow class with ‘Bex’ last night at 4PM. A shiny smiley Scottish girl who took us through a dynamic 90 mins of expression, opening, grounding and uplifting flow. I was trying things I had never done before and was presently surprised to feel my body awaken, soften and hold the space in new postures.   I loved her energy, she smiled and danced through the class and gave some cool talks about alignment, not only in our bodies, but in our lives and what happens on the mat transfers into our worlds.

She started the class with the call to ‘turn to the person beside you and have a chat’ this was a cool way to break the ice and put everyone in a bubbly mood. She also did something else that was cool. She played the most beautiful emotive music during savasa that made your heart melt, then after it finished she read this poem. <3

 

The Invitation

THE INVITATION
by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain! I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty even when it’s not pretty, every day, and if you can source your own life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children. It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

the-yoga-barn-studio, I grabbed this image off the internet to show you what an incredible studio that blows your mind looks like.

I now have a whole day of UBud and Can’t wait to indulge in more love at the Yoga Barn.  Might have to also check out the Monkey Forest!

Cool blog here about what to do in Ubud – the Yogi’s mecca.

Disco Sunsets

14 Jun

last night i witnessed a beautiful sunset followed the rise of the full moon at Ku De Ta in Seminyak, Bali.

On the decks was LATE NIGHT TOUGH GUY, a well respected disco and funk Dj. I am pretty blown away at the calibre of DJs visiting Bali!

While i was sitting there in the sun with my girlfriend Alison, I was feeling pretty stoked that a good chunk of my music collection is disco. And I love disco.

Here’s a couple of disco tracks off the cuff.
