WHAT IS YOGASTASY?

Yoga is Ecstasy, its a unique style of yoga that been mixed with sound meditation. It is a modern version of Hatha-Raja Yoga, fused with the vinyasa flow and Kundalini breathing techniques presented with high quality headphones by using hypnosis frequencies to take you in a deeper meditative state and strong physical practice to keep your mind connected to your body in the present moment during the event.

This event is more than a yoga class; it’s an experience that has been described as a dance of the spirit between mind and body. Its a journey that it will set you on the ecstasy state by practicing heart openers, as well as inversions combining by hip flexors asanas leading to improved flexibility, strength, balance and concentration. A complete practice of mind and body to connect you to yourself and others through vibration of sounds and mindful movements.

ECSTATIC DANCE

Ecstatic dance is a form of dance in which the dancers, sometimes without the need to follow specific steps, abandon themselves to the rhythm and move freely as the music takes them, leading to trance and a feeling of ecstasy. The effects of ecstatic dance begin with ecstasy itself, which may be experienced in differing degrees.

In the ancient and widespread practice of shamanism, ecstatic dance and rhythmic drumming are used to alter consciousness in spiritual practices. Ecstatic sacred dances are known also from religious traditions around the world.

Modern ecstatic dance was revived by Gabrielle Roth in the 1970s and formalised in her 5Rhythms practice; it is now found in variants across the western world.

5Rhythms danced by thousands of people around the world, is a philosophy, a perspective, an art and dynamic practice of movement, rooted in the truth that if you lead your soul to movement, it will heal itself.

Movement is both a cure and a metaphor as it reaches through and above languages, cultures and age groups, transforming: suffering into art, art into awareness and awareness into action. Together means powerful, revolutionary and cosy.

YOGA INSTRUCTOR & DJ

Kash’s dynamic Vinyasa flow and Hatha yoga classes instil a balance of warmth and energy within the body and a calmness of the mind. His classes cover all major aspects of yoga: Breathing (Pranayama), Meditation, Posture (Asana) alignments, modifications and Relaxation (Savasana). Kash received his Hatha Yoga Teaching Certification at Anasura Yoga School in 2020.

Kash believes his past experience as a DJ (over a decade to be exact) to be extremely valuable. As he saw music and dancing as union factors of bringing people together. And in finding Yoga, all his could ever thought about was, “how would these two concepts merge and work together?” Yoga became the antidote to the excesses of DJ life, and his study of philosophy, anatomy and sequencing deepens as he became a teacher. And also as a DJ how to create playlists that elevate the experience of a student in class and how both music and yoga can be spiritual experiences. His certain that this concept encourages positivity and well-being, and excited to share his experiences and ideas with as many people as he can reach.
