What is YogaRhythms you say? Well it's a yoga-rave or sorts. In a nutshell,  it's a 'transformational experience of yoga, dance, meditation and radiant beats'

Created by soul sisters SJ (movement enthusiast and vinyasa yoga teacher - BONDI, AUST) and R.I.A (DJ boffin & mistress of the funk - AKL-NZ) after a perfect connection at Burning Man in 2010, YogaRhythms is an all encompassing, fun fusion of a yoga with live beats, and a guided journey through connectedness, radical self-expression, movement, unity and LOVE.

Of course with LOVE the theme at Splore this year - Start your day the right way with the girls up at Red Bull Art of Camping and get a does of their home-made LOVE tonic and Raw 'Wonder' Chocolate treats. 

B.Y.0 yoga mats (good, but not essential), your dancing feet, and an open heart for a truly inspiring and delicious start to the day. Wear something comfortable that you can move in and makes you feel AMAZING! 

Saturday / Sunday 10 - 12PM at RED BULL ART OF CAMPING 
PS: Don't be shy - it's FUN!

Here's a little bit about the girls; 
SJ (BONDI, AUSTRALIA) Always a playful explorer of both the inner and outer worlds and general hunter for the new, inspiring and FUN, SJ fell into her yoga practice 12 years ago thanks to her primary guru – her beautiful mother. Her commitment to movement and self expression (after 15 years of dance training) made this a physical marriage made in heaven...and so the love affair began...little did SJ know of the wondrous internal transformation that was also coming her way...
Through her dynamic, experimental and very personal teaching style SJ invites you to reconnect to the inner workings of your being, feel and experience your body, mind and spirit in a playful expression of loving and nurturing movement and breath. SJ teaches from the heart to share all she has learnt to help you live life in the flow and to create flexibility in your imagination to help you realize your limitless potential and manifest your wildest dreams! She bows deeply to her teachers and to all of life’s offerings (the good, the bad and the deeply uncomfortable) that awaken her to who she truly is.

R.I.A (AKL) RIA is a fun- loving adventurer with a key goal to experience life in all its variety. Her passion to explore countries and cultures speaks truths through her smiles. Rire (French to laugh) was the name given to her by her father who claims, ‘she is the joy you feel when no one tells a joke’. Himself, a spiritual seeker and conscious lifestyler, taught her how to strum her first cords on the guitar. From here she was hooked on the rhythm of life dedicated to share and connect with people through music. Her natural ability to amplify or soften a mood as a DJ is charismatic. She’s a self confessed slave to the rhythm, 'not the system'

Thursday 23rd January | Friday 24th January
The Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre, Mayoral Drive

Proudly presented by Nga Rangatahi Toa Creative Art Initiative in association with Creative New Zealand and THE EDGE...

Manawa Ora is a powerful and innovative inter-arts work that gives voice to those who are not always heard and shows the world through the eyes of those who are not always seen. Marginalised rangatahi, excluded from mainstream education and living chaotic and challenging lives, are supported by established actors, musicians and visual artists in presenting a collaborative work that is both authentic and challenging.

Manawa Ora, the performance, springs from a week of intensive one-to-one mentoring workshops in theatre, visual arts and music held in December 2013. Rangatahi were matched up with an actor, artist or musician and over five days one-act plays were devised, performance poetry pieces were written, art works were created and music was recorded to bring the real life stories of our rangatahi to the stage. The Manawa Ora performance season will weave live theatre works with documentary footage of the creative process explored during the week-long workshops, all presented against a backdrop of rangatahi-created vibrant aerosol murals and a raw hip hop soundtrack. The end result is a true interactive, inter-arts performance not to be missed.

This is an organic work that showcases personal stories of survival and hope. Through story-telling Manawa Ora aims to make connections across Tamaki Makaurau, across genre, across lives and across our embodied experiences that make us who we are.

Entry is by KOHA at the door, but you've gotta get yourself a ticket....

Eric Lau is a producer you may have heard, but not heard of. Through his work with artists like Dego, Guilty Simpson, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Lupe Fiasco and Oddisee he has earned a reputation as one of the leading producers in Hip-Hop and Soul music, with a strong following of dedicated fans.

His slick productions have turned the ears of both tastemakers and peers like Benji B (Radio 1) who called Lau’s work ‘Heavy’, Phonte (of Little Brother) added that Lau is ‘One of the illest beatmakers’, James Poyser (of The Roots) said ‘I’m a fan!’, and 9th Wonder called his new album ‘Dopeness!’.

Jay Dee, Pete Rock, D’Angelo, Questlove, James Poyser, Donald Byrd and Shuggie Otis are frequently cited by Lau as his main influences. But throughout his short career he has developed a unique sound of his own which has been refined and perfected most prominently on his new album. | FACEBOOK | TWITTER | SOUNDCLOUD | BANDCAMP
