A two part event starting with an all inclusive drum circle. The Drum Circle leader gives a brief history on the Djembe, then leads participants through basic rhythms they can play during the dance portion of the event. The 2nd portion is an invigorating, fun for all ages, DANCE focused YOGA. Lively sounds of drums and soul stirring BASS, participants will "DANCE YOUR WAY TO NAMASTE"™? with movements from across the African Diaspora. As an active meditation, all the principles and intention of yoga are the foundation. The dance portion is not about learning the dances to proficiency but using the repetitive movement, freeing your mind and using the breath work needed to execute the various combos to achieve your yoga. In accordance with Be Safe Chicago Guidelines for Parks and Recreation Activities, participants in this activity will be required to wear a mask and practice social distancing at all times while participating. Patrons who are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to stay home and join us for an event when symptoms subside.
