Journey into Expansion at Westgate
About the workshop
Drop into the theta state during this journey of the mind, body, and spirit.
The evening will begin with a kundalini yoga practice and pranayama (breath work) led by Ashley. The practices will shift stagnant energy and expand our heart space, with open hearts, we will move into a practice of Expanded Dance.
The concept is to go up, up, up, up, getting high on the music and dancing, going to expansion, and feeling free. The dance set will be followed by a live ambient performance with an analog synthesizer and healing sounds.
The music has been described by others as tasteful, groovy, sensual, dreamy, complex rhythms, spiritual, ethereal, introspective, emotional, deep, and cyclic.
