Prepare yourself for another glorious day at DelFest by connecting your mind, body and spirit. All classes are held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Movement playshops will be held in a couple locations and are open to all festival attendees.
Gentle Flow : 10-11:15a : DelFest Music Hall, enter opposite end of building than late night entrance
This class will focus on waking up the brain and body through mindful movement and integration with the breath. Students will flow through a series of modified sun salutations and standing poses to cultivate strength and poise, followed by gentle seated stretches and twists to release any tension and restore a sense of peace and calm at the start of the day. All levels encouraged to attend, bring a mat if you have one. Emily teaches in Morgantown, WV and blogs at www.civicyogini.com.
Vinyasa Flow : 11:30a – 12:45p : DelFest Music Hall, enter opposite end of building than late night entrance
Carla teaches Vinyasa yoga, a style focusing on integrating breath and movement through a steady, fluid sequence of asana (poses). A meditation in motion, Vinyasa yoga cultivates a balance between strength and flexibility, alignment and awareness, effort and ease. Variations of poses will be offered to accommodate everyone. Bring a yoga mat if you have one. Carla teaches in Rockville, MD, see www.thriveyoga.com.
Boomtown Hoops : Fri, 10:30-11:30a, Potomac Stage : Sat, 2-3p, Kidzone : Sun, 3-4p, Music Hall
Hula hooping feels good! Adult playshop on Friday and Sunday for all hooping levels. Learn about the magic of the circle and how you can use it to improve your health, strengthen your mind, and bring flow into your life. Saturday’s playshop in the Kidzone is for the young ones – learn how to hoop, do fun tricks and play circle games.
Boomtown Hoops featuring The Astral Rhythm Dancers will light up the night with incendiary performances, taking place in a designated area in the main music meadow. Enjoy the show from the surrounding grass and please stay out of their designated performance area. Performances will take place each night between the final two Grandstand Stage acts.
Their performances incorporate a wide variety of fire and glowing props, such as fire and LED hoops, poi, fans and fingers, as well as contact juggling and fire eating, all cleverly choreographed together.
