The long verision: 

We are RELEASING. Whatever you came to the festival with: your physical pains, your emotional heaviness, your mental distractions, your spiritual confusions, your energetic angst---we are letting them all go, and from this space you are going to be able to absorb all of the power of the medicinal classes and life-changing experiences to come the next 3 days of the festival.

Join Shawna, master teacher and founder of SDYF, in this unforgettable class experience in which you will release and LET GO. This experience is calling in all the elements and healing all of your bodies leaving you new and ready to receive. This class will feature:

The FIRE element to cleanse the PHYSICAL body.

30  Minute Physical Asana igniting the heat and the fire within you to SWEAT, burn out and release. This physical asana will be presented through Sun Saluations and Breathwork: and epxperence a sacred fire burning ceremony at the conclusion of class on the beach. 

The SPACE ELEMENT to the cleanse the ENERGY body

30 Minute AUM CIRCLE: We will chant AUM 108 times for AUM is the reset button, alighning you back to all that is pure. This will push all negative vibrations away from you as you re-align with the vibration of all things.

The AIR element to cleanse the MENTAL body.

20 MINUTE Breathe-Work and Reiki Healing (presented by Yoga With Shawna's Reiki Angels) to bring fresh oxygen to the brain to release overwhelming thoughts that keep us heavy.

The WATER ELEMENT to cleanse the EMOTIONAL body.

We will use a psychologically proven "talk therapy" technique with  another human being that will teach you how to release your deep emotions in a healthy way: not one that enables re-living. Then..we will surrender in a cleanse with water. Bring a towel. You will not forget this savasana.


Come heavy, leave light.
