Kate Gibbs - The Business of Energy
SATURDAY 2PM WORKSHOP
Yoga teaches us that energy moves through each person in a specific way. Known as the Subtle Body, knowledge of these patterns of energetic movement can help you purposely manifest more of what you want in the world. These days, many people are creating new things (art, businesses, ways of relating) and unlocking the wisdom within your energetic layers is a wonderful way to support these new creations. This workshop will touch on the Chakra System (energy centers in the body) and the Koshas (layers of the Self), as well as yogic concepts of Tarka (discernment) and Spanda (energetic pulsation). A perfect workshop for the yogi entrepreneur, small business owner, or anyone desiring a deeper understanding of their own energetic layers.

SATURDAY 6PM MAIN STAGE
This format blends the magic of yoga with plyometrics, cardio and strength training. We blend HIIT (high intensity interval training) with a yoga practice for a full body workout. This is a class where we push ourselves to our limit and have fun doing it. Classes are loud and energetic and we move to the music. You will feel the BURN in your body and soul as you challenge yourself. When we are able to get out of our heads, into our bodies, there is a powerful release energetically and physically. Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry, sometimes we yell and curse- all of which are acceptable and welcomed.

Jamie Klaes - Power to the People
SUNDAY 9AM MAIN STAGE
Power Yoga is challenging, bringing the practitioner to their edge. Part of the challenge is allowing the ego to drop away and do what is right for your body in that moment, and maybe that means to take a break.. or maybe it means to push. Examining our behavior and internal dialogue, using our breath to be present and finding the focus to drop into sensations.

Emily Anderson LIVE IN CONCERT
SUNDAY 6PM MAIN STAGE
Like stumbling into a rose garden on a trek through the arctic, listeners of Emily Anderson’s music find themselves helplessly lifted into a world so hauntingly familiar, and yet so enchantingly curious. Anderson’s music is as shaped by this whimsical perspective as it is by her musical credentials. A multi-instrumentalist trained at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Anderson fills her songs with images of nature, hope, and the solar system, not to mention a few puns. Anderson hails from Fairbanks, Alaska, and now splits her time between her hometown and Los Angeles.
