Teeki Weekend Retreat @ The Centre

26 Nov

Sup peeps,

Am excited to be teaching a juicy, funky, power vinyasa flow this Saturday 2PM @ The Centre In Kingsland above Little Bird UnBakery, thanks to TEEKI.

If you have not heard of TEEKI. You will. It’s the coolest eco-yoga wear brand with a cult-like following right across the world.

They make their tights from recycled plastic bottles, in the most radical prints and styles.

I’ll be teaching 2PM sharp for 1 hour. You have to book online. So don’t delay – Do it now!  http://www.the-centre.co.nz/timetable/

We’ll be cranking up the tunes and rocking the TEEKI Sale all day long with discounted yoga gear from and free Little bird organics cold-pressed juice shots and raw macaroons + Giveaways!

See ya there,

Love always, R.I.A

Unlock Your Raw Potential & Performance

It’s that time of the year when you realise – ‘Holy shit! It’s that time of the year!’  Yup… It’s that time when everything starts going full speed ahead to the new years eve countdown. It’s that time of year when we have more parties, more planning, more things to do than any other time of year. There’s presents to organise and trips to plan, and work to do, but hey – What about YOU? What do we do when everything just gets a bit hectic? What do we do to keen our mental, emotional and physical state in balance?

We get together with our community and engage in an afternoon of RAW FUSION FUN Sunday 30th of November 1 – 5pm at the brand spanking new Raw Yoga space in Milford.
Raw yoga in Milford  and Teeki have arranged a super cool interactive afternoon to discover what ‘Raw Yoga’ is all about.   Starting off with a Strength Yoga Experience lead by Nicole and Selva. (B.Y.O Stretchy pants or buy some Teeki to sweat in <3) .  The afternoon continues with a variety of speakers from the local community – introducing their work and what we are all about here at Raw Yoga. Starting of with Nicole from Raw talking about the ‘how to’ of Yoga, followed by Selva from GetFitFast who will be discussing the type of training he does and clean eating, Then John from Resilio Design talking ‘Food as Medicine’.

I’m excited, because not only will I be holding down the tunes,  I’ll also be giving a short and sweet presentation on ZRII (the amazing new business I am working with that has a 100% health commitment promoting balance, healing and transformation) – Not to mention a bit of good old fashioned wealth for those that want to get involved with the business side of things!   I will be speaking about three of my most favorite products in the Zrii range which have been carefully formulated for performance, mental focus and stress reduction for a those who live a full life.

The Original Amalaki.

How would you like one nutrition product to rejuvenate the mind and body? Yes. Zrii’s superfoods, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory herbs, and phytonutrients are scientifically formulated to enhance your natural ability to feel alert, energized and renewed.

  • Enhances cellular rejuvenation*
  • Promotes energy*
  • Helps fortify immune function*
  • Promotes healthy digestion*

‘Rising Naturally’ above the competition.
Wake up to healthy, radiant energy. Zrii Rise™ high performance coffee is infused with extra antioxidants and two unique, all-natural wellness ingredients to elevate your energy and transform your health.

Why Zrii Rise™ High Performance Coffee?
Most modern diets do not supply optimal amounts of antioxidants. Although coffee is a potentially rich source, roasting destroys about 90% of naturally occurring antioxidants in coffee beans. In contrast, Zrii Rise™ provides more beneficial antioxidants than most people consume daily from fruits and vegetables combined! Plus a host of total-body benefits including digestive, immune, and cellular health support.

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

-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

Ōtautahi This Weekend!

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 8-9pm – R.I.A PULSE FM with Will

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

Saturday 10 – fall-down in sweaty mess at Winnies with PLAY DJS (R.I.A and DJ C;SHE)
