What is Yoga Remix?
Yoga Remix, Mind-Body Dance Party, is a revolutionary new way to celebrate while connecting deeply with your self. The event is substance free and a great example of how you can let go, be free and have the time of your life on a natural high.
It’s a fresh combination of live music, dance, yoga and meditation. The evening kicks off with a rhythmic, connective yoga practice. It then moves into an ecstatic dance party like no other featuring explosive dance-rock chant fusion with the internationally renowned band, Butterthief. After that, it flows seamlessly into a deep, guided meditation practice and ends on a high note with more singing and dancing. Butterthief, who has performed everywhere from Lincoln Center to the Bonnaroo Festival, puts a modern twist on ancient Sanskrit chants which are known for their healing qualities.
The evening is presented Yes Plus, a division of the Art of Living Foundation, the largest volunteer-run not-for-profit in the world. Yoga Remix is a sister event of Yoga Rave and these events have been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Flavorpill and more.
