Yoga On Beacon to Host Dance Party
May 2017


A local yoga studio is hosting a dance party on Wednesday, May 17 from 7:45—9:15 p.m. Yoga On Beacon dance party organizer Aubrey Armes invites attendees to "recharge and ignite your inner fire through embodiment and dance" at the event.

"What kind of dance? Any ol kind you choose," Armes explains. "l call mine the 'flail and flop.' The purpose is to move your body in ways that feel good. This helps move your energy flow--allowing for more ease and creativity to flow through," she continues. "There's no way to do it wrong."

Armes says the event is intended to release stress, anxiety, overwhelm and any emotions participants have been feeling, while allowing them to connect with their bodies through intentional music and play with childlike wonder and glee.

Attendees typically dress in yoga clothes, but may wear anything that is easy to move in. Armes encourages attendees to bring a water bottle and an item for the community alter (to be retrieved at the end of the evening).

The Dance Party takes place Wednesday, May 17 from 7:45—9:15 p.m. at Yoga On Beacon, 3013 Beacon Ave S., Seattle. $20. Street parking is free. For more information: AwakenYourGreatness.guru.
