EVENTS

RAINBOW SPIRIT DANCE with DJ MEIKEN

“Meiken music, makin’ love, makin’ art, makin’ all the tingz! This cosmic starseed human has been makin’ waves since ’87 and doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon.

Opening for the likes of Deya Dova, Elijah Ray, Kasabian, Vaudeville Smash, Lisa Mitchell and MeloX, Meiken is no stranger to the big stage. Playing at festivals Rainbow Serpent, Maitreya, Subsonic, Seven Sisters, Ahimsa, Earth Frequency and Island Elements Festival, Meiken knows how to bring the vibe.

Having toured nationally with their music, with both their live soul funk hip hop project and DJ sets, Meiken just levelled up and only recently got back from a music and stand-up comedy tour in Paris.

Their first EP ‘Metanoia’ received radio play on both commercial and community radio stations across Australia and 2019 will see Meiken’s debut full length LP debut entering your earholes.

Having taken the stage with Mad Professor at Island Vibes, MC styling with Mista Savona for 420Sound, cyphering lines with Freestyle Mafia and Hugo Farrant and running a monthly cacao party called ’Get Rooted’ in Byron, Meiken is one of the Shire’s bright lights. Catch M while you can, as they won’t be around for long. Meiken’s live DJ sets are known for their uplifting, feel good sound, as they take you on a journey around the world, up to the stars, and back down to Earth again with some disco funk to bring you home.

Get ready to party, and bring a spare pair of underwear,

cause Meiken gone’get’you HOT!

NUDE YOGA 

Let go your inhibitions, fears, ego – and your clothes in a safe non judgemental Body-Positive mindset space with other women.

Exercise and stretch with an element of fun liberation and adventure. Nudity is natural, not only about ‘sexy’ poses but being in peace with yourself means accepting your body. Also being naked removes many social and economic barriers, and brings you to facing any vulnerabilities about self image. A new way to accept love and celebrate your body! Your boobs wont get in the way!

Classes are candlelit and start with pranayama and close eyed meditation, followed by a ritual of derobing and releasing as we move into appropriate asanas in the format of a circle- and end with a luscious shavasana.

Bring your own mat or towel (Clothing-optional)

Bookings required by April 22 to participate

MENS NUDE YOGA

This is a space where men can come together and connect both to themselves and the tribe…

Join us in these playful and fun non-sexual classes for men who want to bond in a unique way.There are a number of reasons to practice naked.

While our society often equates being naked with sex, other cultures have found that being naked removes many social and economic barriers. It is also very freeing to move the body without the restriction of clothing, and yoga provides a great way to deepen body acceptance.

Also, being naked can bring up many of our vulnerabilities. By facing these fears in the context of a safe and supportive community of men, we naturally become more grounded and comfortable with ourselves.

Men of all shapes, sizes, colours, ages and physical abilities are welcome to attend. All you need is yourself and a towel and a yoga mat.

Being Spacious 

May we embody the vitality and harmony that arises when we bring spaciousness into our life. This workshop is an encouragement to step away from the stress and noise we put on our bodies and mind by being in a continual state of doing. This is an invitation to reinvent our day, to offer more space and allow our wings to expand out into new frontiers.
What we will cover:
Movement-based therapy around the Shoulder girdle
Partner yoga to invite a newfound buoyancy
Traditional – energetic and structural based bodywork
Self-inquiry to notice patterns that we need to dissolve
ABOUT GYWN WILLIAMS
Zenthai shiatsu was created by Gwyn Williams over 15 years ago, as a fusion of Zen shiatsu, Thai massage and osteopathic technique. The sacredness of touch continues to be his inspiration and the evolution never ceases. Openness, inclusiveness and non-resistance is at the core. The doorway is always welcome towards movement forms that bring us away from division and back home to unity and ultimately true freedom. Gwyn Williams work can be explored through his books: ‘The Zen of touch’ and ‘Connection to Source’
