Friday


9:00 AM – 9:45 AM: Guided Meditation + Sound Bath

Description: receive an energetic massage for your soul and central nervous system as you’re guided deep into a relaxed meditative state. These quartz crystal singing bowls entuned to the chakras will have you melting into your mat.


10:00 AM – 10:45 AM: Thai Yoga Partner Massage

Description: this workshop will guide you through a simple but therapeutic flow to bring healing energy to your partner while you tap into your own meditative state from the ancient healing art of Thai Massage.


11:00 AM – 11:45 AM: Yoga Electrified, Get Grounded

Description: remember your innate strength and flexibility through this inspiring flow. Get grounded in your body through focused breath work; stretch tight muscles from traveling to the festival, and leave feeling more connected to Mulberry Mountain and the Backwoods Community.


12:30 PM – 1:15 PM: Hoop Dance, Intro

Description: if you’ve ever been curious about trying to hoop dance then this is the class for you. Katie will walk you through everything you need to know to get started including what size hoop to use, various hoop dance styles, and foundational hoop moves. Hoop dance moves covered will include waist hooping, floats, sustained spinning, the smear, and the half vortex. Finally, a short combo of moves will be choreographed into your first ever hoop dance!


1:30 PM – 2:15 PM: Acro Yoga

Description: grab your yoga mats and prepare to take flight! Learn how to base, fly, and spot fundamental acroyoga poses. Together we will create a safe and playful environment to explore the strength that arises when we allow ourselves to trust one another. No partner or experience necessary.


2:30 PM – 3:15 PM: Laughter Yoga

Description: laughter Yoga is hilariously simple. Breath is essential to life, and laughter is a potent breathing ‘technique’ that everyone has experienced before. Using laughter to heal, laughter yoga implements childlike games and silliness exercises to stimulate forced laughter, which creates genuine deep-belly joy-inspiring giggles when paired with interpersonal eye contact. Laughter Yoga was created by a medical doctor as an accessible yogic breath work practice, stimulating the vagus nerve, cycling oxygen deep into the lungs, and offering a connection-building activity for all involved. No experience is needed to join, and we ask all participants arrive without judgement and willing to make eye-contact. No experience is needed to join, just bring some water and something to sit on! We ask that all participants arrive with open minds and open hearts!
