Ecstatic Dance LA is moving the party to Naam Yoga in Santa Monica for a special event with the internationally renowned Producer, DJ Drez & Yogi Vocalist Marti Nikko! This is a rare opportunity to dance with one of the greatest duos in the yoga & conscious dance community! Trust us when we say this is one event you don’t want to miss. We hope to groove with you there! The event will open with a soulful vinyasa yoga flow lead my Marti Nikko and then move into an all out Ecstatic Dance journey with the legendary DJ Drez. We highly advise that you get your pre-sale tickets while they last because there’s only space for 300 people to attend, and we’re planning on selling out!

DJ Drez’s music has been moving bodies for more than two decades. His sound is an organic blend of mystical hip-hop, reggae roots and Indian raga that has been known to instigate an ecstatic dance party one instant, and soothe a group into a meditative savasana the next. If you’re a fan of Drez, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the mysterious, seductive voice of Marti Nikko gracing dozens of the albums, tracks and remixes he’s released over his prolific career. Nikko’s innate spark illuminates Explorers of Infinity. Her soul-soaked vocals dance and play in the spaces impeccably arranged by DJ Drez, highlighting a natural chemistry developed and enhanced through years of performing, living and loving together. The result is a beautiful, eclectic collection of music made for all sacred movement and moods. In addition to making music, Marti teaches yoga and pilates and we’re so blessed to have her & Drez join us back in Los Angeles for this awesome event!

➤ Yoga with Marti Nikko

Seal up the places you leak energy by getting deeply rooted in your whole being. This soulful vinyasa practice will help you experience a more awake state while breaking through old patterns, an awareness rooted in reality both inside and out. Set yourself free. Moving into grace with intention and celebration as we practice in community together along with some beautiful dope music.

A truly gifted teacher, Marti is known for motivating her students through her own passion. Fully certified in Yoga and the Pilates Method, and having worked in the fitness industry for the past 15 years, she teaches from a deep understanding of movement dynamics and the body. Keeping students engaged using unique modifications and variations to the classic repertoire, her sessions encourage focus and concentration. She continually supports her desires to learn new methods and her ability to help one find strength and ease through practice. She takes master workshops each year and believes in the deep healing power of yoga for all. It is her desire to create space that allows for greater depth, awareness and overall wellbeing in one’s practice.

------------------------------------------

➤ How it works:

We open with a special warmup yoga or movement class facilitated by a skilled practitioner. The opening class blends seamlessly into the the two hour freeform dance journey facilitated by our guest DJ. At the end of the DJ set we close with a sound bath or group exercise to ground and complete the experience.

“At Ecstatic Dance, we join together to create a sacred space for dancing. No talking on the dance floor allows us to move out of our heads and into our bodies, hearts, and spirits. We leave behind the words and worries of the day, and connect with spirit and each other in new ways.” - Donna Carrol (Co-Founder Ecstatic Dance Oakland)
