FUNK FUSION DANCE CLASSES
Dance Choreography Series with Sunny Gorg
Fusion Funk begins with a deep and penetrative warm-up before gliding into a rhythmic jam, influenced by both cultural and classical styles of dance. Class culminates in choreography designed to bring forth a sense of funky freedom, while at the same time being rooted in technique and rhythmic prowess. Finally, class winds down, as rhythm gradually gives way to ease and flow.
Sunny was raised in the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands and the bustle of Los Angeles. As a child she studied dance and began practicing yoga in her teens. Her extensive dance training has encompassed both cultural and classical styles of movement including ballet, jazz, hip hop, West African, Congolese, Afro Cuban, Afro Brazilian, samba and many other styles. As a performing artist Sunny has worked in film, television, music videos, commercials, print and on stage with artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Perry Ferrel, Michael Bolton, Queen Latifa, Paula Abdul, Melissa Ethridge, Ice Cube, Ben Harper and many others. As a professional dance teacher Sunny has facilitated classes, workshops and retreats; she has worked with such organizations as the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, the Hammer Museum and the Oakland Kaiser Hospital Complex.In 2016 Sunny became certified as a yoga instructor and began sharing her love of yogic arts.
FULL MOON SOUND BATH
with Shanti Sound Healing
Friday, November 8th
7:00 – 8:00pm
$25 pre-register, $30 door
at the Maui Yoga Shala – 381 Baldwin Ave, Paia
Together as Shanti Sound Healing, Christina and Paul create magical journeys through meditation and vibrational sound. You will be enveloped in a divinely inspired chorus of healing vibrational sound… Tibetan singing bowls, created by Nepalese artisans and infused with blessings by Himalayan Monks will sweep you away on a transcendent sound journey. Crystal quartz singing bowls, tuned to the vibration of the universe will also be used in addition to various chimes, crystal quartz pyramid, and water gong that will take your meditation as deep as the sea.
Each instrument played is immersed with loving intention to gently transition participants from his or her normal waking state to a highly relaxed state of consciousness. In this relaxed state, a person’s own innate healing abilities are able to work more effectively to bring them back into optimal vibrational alignment that enhances overall health and well-being.
During a Sound Bath, participants dress comfortably and lie on a yoga mat with the optional use of pillows/bolsters. A harmonious sleep-like state is reached while lying comfortably on your back in Savasana (corpse pose). It includes a guided chakra meditation, aromatherapy and individual attention by Christina during this beautiful immersion of healing sound.
