Briana Kai-Sacred Dance & Yoga of the Elements

SACRED DANCE & YOGA OF THE ELEMENTS  Embrace and embody the elements of Fire, Air, Earth, Water, and Ether with a fusion of Bellydance, Samba, Afro-Brazilian, and Indian Dance. Accompanied with a Kundalini and Vinyasa Yoga warm up and a Qi Gong cool down, this workshop will take you on a journey through the elements, open your heart, and awaken your body, mind, and spirit.

BIO: With a background in dance since the age of three, Briana Kai has been exploring creative movement her whole life. Beginning with Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Hip Hop, and later expanding into Salsa, Samba, Belly Dance, Afro-Brazilian, and Odissi Indian Temple Dance, artistic fusion has become culmination of years of exposure to diverse styles and dance cultures. Finding deep healing in the sacredness of movement and the devotion of dance, naturally Briana was drawn to develop a regular yoga practice to compliment her dancing. Completing her Pilates certification with Polestar Pilates in 2008, she began to explore the therapeutic and healing qualities of various movement modalities.  Teaching dance and movement to children of all ages since she was ten years old, Briana loves to share practices to elevate and empower the youth to be conscious co-creators of their own reality and honor the body temple. As an accomplished singer, music has a great impact in her practice over the years, and she loves to share the harmonizing and transcendental effects of the combination of movement and music in her classes. Finding the universal love and oneness through dance blending with the spiritual awareness of yoga, fusion is the natural progression; creating a sacred space with our own body temples through devotional disciple and practice results in a happy, healthy and holy life.

https://www.facebook.com/jeanette.prather

BEGINNING POLE ACROBATICS & SPINS
In this beginning pole acrobatic and spinning workshop we will be learning some of the basic universal pole moves, positions and spins that have made pole dance and acrobatics so popular! Technique plays an important role in this gymnastic sport, and you will walk away from this workshop with a good grip on beginning pole moves and spins as well as the technique needed to implement further advanced positions and inversions. And, just as important it is to execute these moves and spins, learning how to gracefully enter and exit them is equally crucial. No need for any rigorous dance, fitness or acrobatic experience prior to taking this workshop; you will gain the exact skills that you need to take away a fantastic foundation (and mini-routine!) on the pole.

POLE CONDITIONING AND STRETCHING In this pole conditioning and stretching workshop we will be gaining the musculature of an elite athlete, after all that’s what pole acrobatics is all about! You will learn how to strengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments indigenous to the pole all while elongating them and creating a lithe, lean look. You will not only feel stronger and more empowered, but also beautiful and enlightened; there’ss something to be said about the way that Greek Gods looked while perched atop Mount Olympus. Keep this image in mind while on your way to the best shape of your life via pole conditioning and stretching, nothing compares. Tabata method (high intensity interval training) is used in some parts of the workshop. Novice fitness students thru advanced athletes welcome!

BIO: Jeanette grew up dancing at Motion Pacific in Santa Cruz, CA. There, she performed with LA Models at the grand opening of Macy’s in Capitola before attending California State University, Long Beach, having received a B.A. in journalism, French, international studies and dance, as well as performing in Super Bowl XXXVII. She went on to dance in NBA Summer Pro-league, the OC Fair and Disneyland before moving to France and then Italy for one year to perform. After that, she worked as the choreographer of two resorts in Mexico, the Turks & Caicos Islands and Florida, learning aerial and pole before moving to New York City to teach and perform. Last August Jeanette won third in National Pole Sport Organizations National Championships, as well as second place in Aerial Arts America Pro Division Competition in November.

HoopSUP- Hooping on a Stand Up Paddle Board with Earlene

HoopSUP- Hooping on a Stand Up Paddle Board
Back by Popular Demand!

Wonder how it would feel to hoop on water? Come join the FUN again this year on standup paddle boards (SUP) in the pool at Hoopcamp. I will teach you the basics of SUP and cross train those fundamentals with hooping on a SUP. You will find in just a short period of time your entire body engaged! HoopSUP builds whole body strength, increasing stability and balance. It refines even the basics of hoop skills because of your stationary position. It really LOOKS harder than it is, but mostly it’s just FUN! So come HoopSUP’n with me or at the very least get your picture taken on one. After this workshop you too will be able to take it to the ocean, lake, river‚ and the possibilities are endless.

BIO:

Earlene is native Hawaiian, born and raised in its culture.  Hula, Polynesian dance, and surfing have been her heritage.  She started hooping in 2010 when she retired from hula dancing.  At that time, she had been standup paddle boarding for two years and one day decided to combine the two movements calling it HoopSUP.  HoopSUP is featured in Standup Journal’s Fall 2013 issue, as well as a number of online SUP and hooping sites.  Earlene currently lives in Santa Cruz, CA where she regularly enjoys and teaches the HoopSUP lifestyle.  She is also a mother of two and loving life.
