Michael Miller
Ableton Improv

Led by Michael Miller of Vibe & Direct

From routing your analog gear, organizing your devices and effects, or just learning how to be creative on the fly, opening Ableton live for the first time can be an overwhelming experience. In this workshop i will show you that there is always more than one way to achieve the goals of your creative mind in a streamlined, organized and linear fashion. Along with giving an actual musical demonstration on how I create on the fly, I will also be touching upon organization, looping, and a very light intro into music theory. With these key pieces in mind you will be creating music in a real time environment before you know it!!

Niko Yup
Harnessing Your Inner Groove

Led by Niko Yup of Wanyama

In this workshop I ask you to bring a drum, a tambourine, your clapping hands, or anything that creates rhythm. In the first half of this workshop I will go over some beginner beats, and patterns for you to follow. Whether you are a master of the art of percussion or don't know how to hold a beat this workshop will be fun and easy for everyone.

In the second half we will take the beats and patterns that I've shown you and we will integrate them all together and create beautiful music, and connect through patterns and rhythms.

So, please come take a seat and watch the groove unfold, or pick something up and help me. Let's make this drum workshop something to remember as ALL of us become one together at Alchemy Rising 2017.

Lucas Cassi
Breathing/Pranayama

Led by Lucas Cassi

We will enjoy some restorative poses, and tune into the body and breath. Pranayama, the practice of ancient yogic breathing techniques, consciously controls the flow of breath, and thus enhances the flow of energy in the body. A regular, balanced pranayama practice increases prana (life energy), thereby inviting greater mental clarity, and heightened healing potential and deeper self-understanding. Pranayama, like other yogic practices, is about being more fully alive and well.

Cassidy Padgett, and Erin Crowley
Oneness Awakening Partner Yoga

Led by Cassidy Padgett and Erin Crowley

Partner yoga deepens, poses, connections, communication, and balance. Joining energies and movements can be a very powerful way to deepen the human connection. By going through different poses, exercises, and meditation we will awaken the oneness within us all.

Regular vinyasa flow

Led by Cassidy Padgett and Erin Crowley

The word Vinyasa means a sequence in which the breath is synchronized with the movement of the body. We will be moving from one pose to another on an inhale or an exhale. Synchronizing each movement with each breath, connecting yourself to your mind, body, and spirit. Ultimately becoming more in tune with your higher self and experiencing a total mind body connection.
