Ecstatic Bass Yoga is an experience of music and movement, intention and joy. Claire Thompson’s vibrant vinyasa yoga, free movement, and deep stretch sequence, infused with humor and Buddhist wisdom, is skillfully paired with a DJ set each week in live collaboration. The journey starts with ambient tones and musical meditation, building through cutting-edge downtempo dub and bass music, all the way up to full-on dancefloor ecstasy, and back down to a Bass-Heavy sound healing and sweet savasana. Union Nightclub’s Funktion-One Soundsystem provides full-frequency musical experience to rock your chakras, with beats from resident DJs UnicornLife and PawZ, and special guests such as Treavor Moontribe, Morillo, and Imagika Om.
Ecstatic Bass Yoga facilitator Claire Thompson has been touring the international festival scene since 2010 as a yoga, meditation, and massage teacher and with her project Yoga of Bass, which creates mainstage Yoga/DJ/Dance experiences in collaboration with DJs such as Desert Dwellers, David Starfire, FreQ Nasty, and Rhythmstar. Claire has taught at U.S. festivals Symbiosis, Lightning in a Bottle and Wanderlust, Canada’s Shambhala and Astral Harvest, Glade Festival United Kingdom, Luminate New Zealand, Wonderfruit Thailand, and Australia’s Rainbow Serpent, Earth Frequency, and Wanderlust, as well as at many yoga and meditation retreats. In Ecstatic Bass Yoga, Claire brings together her 16 years of practice and study of the body through massage therapy, yoga, and dance, her 10 year study of Buddhism and meditation, and her love of music and background in singing and performance to create a unique experience of body, breath and mind that is both lighthearted and deeply transformational.
