MOONDANCE EXPERIENCE FEATURING DJ DREZ
105 NE 24th St, Miami, FL 33137, USA
"Dance like nobody is watching."
MoonDance Experience is a full moon gathering that involves dynamic yoga stretching, cacao activation, sound healing, ecstatic dancing, and meditation. During the event you will experience a welcome circle and intention setting cacao activation ceremony to set the tone. This is followed by yoga stretching, an “ecstatic dance” session, sound healing, and meditation prior to closing the circle. “Ecstatic Dance” is a form of dance in which the dancers move freely as the music takes them - the DJ guides the audience through an eclectic selection of tracks that build into a crescendo. The dancers begin and end in Savasana pose. This experience will be led by a team which includes the DJ, a yoga and circle facilitator, a musician/sound healer and special guests.
PLEASE READ: Prior to MoonDance from 5PM - 6:30PM, DJ Drez and Ashley Sergeant will host 'Breathe + Move' a breath-based yoga sequence designed to open the spine and activate your center with mindful asana, spinal mobility and deep breath work as the central focus.

Claudia Morales has always been moved by energy and movement. As she started practicing yoga, her life profoundly changed, and she began to be connection with her higher self. She began discovering so many incredible things about herself, her body, and her energy, understanding that we are awareness itself and not the impermanent definitions we create in our minds. Her love for yoga is so deep that she decided to become a yoga teacher where she learned balance, patience, humility, respect, self-honor, mindfulness, spirituality, self-love and to be present in every moment. Through continued practice she became part of a community and started discovering different lineages of yoga and meditation. One of these was ecstatic dance or movement meditation. Her goal is to share this with others, help create community and support others in connecting to their higher selves through yoga, meditation, dance and breath work. In this way we to connect with our true essence, we shift to higher levels of consciousness and awareness as we release fear and learn to unlearn.
Luis Molinar was born in the sign of Aries in Mexico. He is most activated in life by love, nature, music, yoga, community and movement. His heart is open to helping create opportunities for each of us to love and support each other. In this way we can continue to grow as a community through a beautiful ¨dance of life¨. He believes we are all on the planet a reason and movement meditation is one of the gifts that life has given us. It supports us in remembering the energy and power we hold within while dancing and releasing what does not serve us. Dancing helps us tap into the sacred connection between mind, body and spirit and reminds us of our soul’s playful nature. As we dance we allow our magical, inner child, run wild and free.
