M.A.Y. Fest A celebration of Music, Art and Yoga

This inaugural festival is being held in the Needmore Community field in Nashville, IN – a field previously blessed by the Dali Lama. This large open field with a large fire pit, a stage, and some event tents and port-a-potties will be our weekend getaway. Most people stay in tents on the field. Camping is primitive, so you’ll have to pack in your own water. Small campers are welcome on the back field – when it rains, it can get tricky getting out. If you’re not feeling the field vibe, you can find accommodations in nearby Nashville, IN. Cell phone access can be spotty. The Needmore Community field had its start as part of the Needmore Commune in the 1960s. Music has been hosted on the stage for over 50 years with both local and national acts. Most notable are Toots and the Maytals playing a reggae festival. The field is the home of the Ukulele World Congress, the largest ukulele gathering in the United States. Our gathering will continue the tradition this field is known for, endless smiles. Daily yoga sessions, nature walks, a beautiful creek to explore, music, and art! Featuring local and regional workshop facilitators, there will be many forms of yoga, a reiki workshop, drum circle, ecstatic dance, and spiritual guides to help us explore ourselves. The festival includes one meal on Saturday night that is vegetarian or vegan. All other food you’ll need to bring with you.

BUTI POP

BUTI POP

I’m guiding a new experience that combines Buti® Yoga and ecstatic dance I’m calling Buti® Pop!  This will be a hybrid experience that will incorporate the dynamic asanas fused with primal movements found in Buti® Yoga and will be layered with free form ecstatic dance time and chakra invigorating seed tone exploration. So get ready to stir up your energy centers and find it exploding into the universe with expansive moves and even guttural noises intended to tap into your wild side. Let’s pop.

Acro Yoga Partner Massage and Flying

ACRO YOGA

ACRO YOGA

Acro Yoga is a form of yoga that requires groups of three. You do NOT need to have a partner nor group to attend. We can pair you up. Acro Yoga is a partner practice that blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power and precision of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of this practice that cultivates trust, playfulness and community. We will spend time in Thai massage stretches in between exploration of some Acro Yoga shapes.
