Elizabeth Rose
Yoga has been a part of Elizabeth Rose’s life for over 14 years. Her practice has helped her grow stronger, more flexible, and fearless, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires her to live each moment more mindfully. She completed her 200 training in the teachings of Beth Spindler, a Himalayan Institute resident and yoga author at The Yoga Institute. In her classes, she loves to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness, and a dose of inspiration to help students deepen their practice. She seeks to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind, and soul with yoga, and her hope is that her students step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished, and balanced.

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.

10:30am – 12:45pm


Urban Colombian, Afro-Caribbean, Champeta & Reggaeton

Explore upbeat dance styles and other traditional forms that have evolved from the merging of African and South American cultures across the Caribbean.

The champeta is a dance strongly inspired by the African rhythms born on the Caribbean coast. This musical genre is a social phenomenon in the streets of Cartagena de Indias, the pearl of the Caribbean. The champeta is danced alone or in couple. It involves a sensual movement of the body that represents a form of seduction.

Reggaeton is a type of late 1990s dance that began in Puerto Rico. It’s strongly influenced by Latin American, Caribbean, and hip hop music, and this fun, sexy, free-spirited style of dance is popular in nightclubs. To start dancing reggaeton, learn moves like shoulder pops, body waves, and lower body isolations.
