The Sacred Space Miami

A breath-based sequence designed to open the spine and activate your center with mindful asana, spinal mobility and deep breath work as the central focus. Ashleigh and Drez’s classes are a unique blend of super slow flow, long holds and creative movement with a backdrop of spacious soulful beats and world music that create a cozy backdrop for a deeply explorative practice. Awaken the entire body and sharpen the mind through steady yet flowing movements that will open subtle energy pathways, increase range of motion and build strength on a deep level.
About the Presenters:
Growing up with a yoga teacher as her mother, Ashleigh Sergeant began her exploration of yoga at an early age, dedicated to the pursuit of healing a lifelong spine condition. As the Head of Yoga Content for Gaia.com, Director of Yoga and Movement for The Envision Festival in Costa Rica, and co-founder of The Ālaya Yoga School, Ashleigh Sergeant also spent five years as the Global Yoga Trainer for Adidas and was honored to be the youngest Certified Anusara Yoga Instructor in the world. Her classes are a blend of slow, alignment-based flow with creative sequencing, precise technique and lots of room for personal exploration in non-linear out of the ordinary postures.
Ashleigh’s first teachers include Bryan Kest and Baron Baptiste and she is strongly influenced by Rod Stryker’s ParaYoga. Ashleigh’s present passion is the deep exploration of the mystical and energetic side of yoga practices. For this her primary teacher and long time inspiration is the great Sally Kempton.
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 a dance party one instant, and soothe a group into a meditative savasana the next. DJ Drez is in demand as a producer, musical director and sound ambassador. A master of his craft in the studio and on stage, Drez cuts and composes profoundly original tracks that facilitate body movement practice of all forms— be it dance, yoga asana or after-hours intimate/ecstatic.
Drez transforms the vibe of any scene his sound is set upon. Rooted in underground L.A. hiphop, Dr. EZ applies precise turn-table skills to a cutting edge vision for truly universal music, intelligently integrating elements of hiphop, world music, soul, funk, jazz, and reggae into his trademark sound and production.
