Yoga and Ecstatic Dance with a Live DJ.

  • The Studio, YogaTherapies 214a Rothbury Terrace Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE6 5DE United Kingdom (map)

Join Waterbird at Yoga Therapies Heaton for an immersive evening of Yoga & Dance!

Our evening will start at 6 with a twist on our usual friday vinyasa as Chris is accompanied by live DJ set. Followed by an Ecstatic Dance Workshop from 7.30 to connect you to your own freedom of expression.

The ecstatic dance session is designed to explore our inner self through meditation, music and movement. To reach natural highs while feeling freer and more confident to express ourselves.

Join us for the Yoga or the Dance only, priced at £15 each, or the whole evening for £30.

The Ecstatic dance will include:

  • Exercises to help you loosen up and connect with each other in the space.

  • Guided meditations to assist in connecting to yourself.

  • An hour long Dance to a dynamic range of music specifically curated to take you on an ecstatic journey with your body and sound.

  • A cool down with refreshments and a chance to chat about your experience.

What to expect:

  • Expect to step out of your comfort zone as you are encouraged to move and dance.

  • It can feel strange or uncomfortable, which is why our focus is to create a safe non-judgemental and fun environment for this. Don’t let doubt or hesitation get in your way!

  • Give yourself permission to care less about what others think and move your body however your feel.

  • Expect to leave feeling differently to how you arrived.

For the Dance. . .

Come comfortable and wear something you feel free in. To move and feel the groove. This is a shoeless event. We would advise bare feet or gripped socks. It is a sprung wood floor tailor made for movement and therefore getting a feel for this under your feet is also part of the experience.

How does it work?

The idea of our Ecstatic Dance is to take you on your own journey, encouraging you to use your body and mind to freely move how it wants to. We will encourage everyone to respect a silence between each other which allows us to tune into ourselves that little bit more. It will give you the chance to loose those inhibitions and let go of any fear of judgment. There will be space so you can leave the room at any point to talk or take a drink. The music is carefully chosen to take you through many emotions including feeling ecstatically high. Bring a bottle of water and an open mind. There will be water available in the venue along with other refreshments should you need a source of energy.

Who are Waterbird?

Waterbird is a concept of events and experiences curated by partners Nina and Chris who combine their skills and passions in self-inquiry and re-wilding to gather like minds together to explore, connect, grow and dance.

"Waterbird is a hybrid of our true selves; It represents the depth we have inside, just like the ocean and our ability to flow effortlessly like a river. Along with reaching our infinite potential just like the expansiveness of the sky and the freedom to explore life, feel so alive and high just like a bird in flight.”
