Kundalini Yoga with Crystal Bowls Sound Bath with Elena Klymenko
Anahata Kundalini Yoga with crystal Bowls sound bath – practice that focuses on opening the heart center and aligning with your true path. We will start with realigning chakra warm up, followed by Hatha flow to get your entire body and mind rejuvenated and balanced, followed by special Kundalini yoga kriya for the open heart shining with love and kindness.
Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to be an experience for both body and soul.
In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
Your experience will be enhanced with the meditative sound of seven crystal bowls corresponding to each chakra which helps with their alignment and balance.

Yoga and Live Music with Fedor Bondar and Jane Kabarguina
People think too much. They need to cleanse their minds and be able to think clearly to take away the white noise in their heads. Our tandem of musicians have the unique ability to provide the type of rhythm that participants need to clear that noise. They’ll be able to connect better with their intuition and their current mood. Not only will it uplift participants but will give them energy for the rest of the Festival and for the future.
Fedor Bondar and Jane Kabarguina will use a combination of live music and movements from ancient times.
We all sit in silence to meditate, going deep into ourselves. After a few minutes, we’ll create a rhythm. It’ll come from tapping and clapping from the Jane. Fedor translates the rhythm into his own world using an electric guitar with flute and other instruments on top. Both the instructor and musician start sounding and moving as a whole. Participants simply follow verbal and rhythmical instructions and move in yogic poses combining dynamic with static.
