Move Your Body and Still Your Mind: Vivation and Flow Arts combined

Come to the Vivation/Flow Arts "Playshop"!

Move your body and still your mind! Play, fun, fearlessness, and expansion will be the main focus of the day. First, you will learn the basics of Vivation healing breathwork from Patricia Bacall, energize yourself and find out how good your most seeming negative feelings can be, then experience a complete Vivation session. After a break, we will then learn Flow Arts with Teafaerie, (our pre-eminent L.A. Flow Arts teacher/performance artist) spinning "Poi" or juggling spheres, learning new mind balancing (and boggling) skills. (Poi Spinning is a prerequisite to Fire Spinning.)
Flow Arts is a meditation and self-transformation practice that improves patience, balance, confidence, dexterity, focus, coordination and self-esteem. It's a fun and sexy performance art, as well as an invigorating workout. Some people call it a hybrid of meditation, kinetic arts and performance art that teaches one to play and dance while increasing vitality and focus.

The Teafaerie is co-founder of Flow Temple, a fire dancing school and Flow Arts outreach program in Los Angeles. She has taught poi all over the world, most recently in Haiti where she founded the island nation's first Flow Collective.

LA Times states, "Flow Temple is the fast track to Jedi status."
Come breathe, laugh and play as we spend the day in celebration of fun. No prior skills needed in either poi spinning or Vivation breathwork.
Bring water, snacks, and sack lunch–there will only be a 45 min. lunch break. Wear loose, colorful, fun clothes. Poi will be provided, you may want to bring a yoga mat/pillow/blanket for Vivation session.
Cost: $79. per person, deposit required to hold your space. This workshop will fill up, so act now to reserve. No refunds, be sure you can attend before reserving. You can purchase poi from TeaFaerie if you want to continue your practice at home.
