JoGa Beats  – Closing Parties Retreat 2012

Back by popular demand, Jo just hosted two final retreats for 2012 in the month of October, to round off a stunning summer of JoGa in the funshine.

First up came our very first international location and an old favourite romping ground…Ibiza!

Hot on the heels of our Let It Loose retreat in Kent in July, this time the focus was clear…Let’s Play!

In our normal daily grind of office hours, weekly shops, family and financial commitments, we don’t make enough playtime, soooooo this was a chance  to shake the whole thing off, free up the mind/body into one WEEK LONG party!

Make no mistake, this was a booze free, meat free, drug free retreat, but for one day/night ONLY, we did PARTY!

Lucky then that the retreat fell on the same week of the legendary closing parties! Far from missing out we hit SPACE  terrace for the final shindig on our day off on the Sunday after a day at Healing Ibiza at the Atzaro Spa.

To prepare in the days leading up and to recover after, we had daily morning, music led JoGa Beats classes, pool playtimes, sunset soul and funk sessions, dance music meditations.

The focus of the week was to use and fuse music & gentle beats with our breath until the mind/body followed suit, put simply……fully allowing the feeling of freedom to return.

There was also elements of dance involved in some of the classes and free flow….as well as on the SPACE terrace!

This was in a nutshell, a week to let rip, let loose, shake it up and let it all hang out up in the hills in a stunningly beautiful villa -in the serene surroundings of a beautiful fruit orchard, private pool, sun terrace & chill out lounge & private gardens.

If it sounds like it could be up your street, fear not, Jo will be hosting two more in 2013.

The first will be held in May 2-9th in a stunning hillside Finca complete with Jacuzzi on the sun terrace and purpose made Yoga deck.

Email Jo for details on jo@joyoule.co.uk  and Watch this SPACE for a special Ibiza closing parties retreat collaboration…..

 

 

JoGa Beats in Goa
Dec 2012 16

16th Dec 2012 – JoGa Beats debuts in Goa

Jo will take her first JoGa Beats workshop in Arambol on Wednesday 19 Dec at The Blue Pyramid.

Linking our breath to the beat, the way music is created in bars of 8, we will inhale for 4 and exhale for 4 through a beat heavy playlist, where possible.

The rest of the time we flow through a series of Asana’s to the music and use improvised dance and free flow, so you can do what feels good in your body.

Check out the kind of playlist Jo will use to guide you through on her Mixcloud JoGaBeats page.

Kick off is 7-9pm after the sunset drum circle.

Rs 400

 

 

 

JoGa Beats…Naturally.
Apr 2013 16

After kicking off 2013 teaching on the sandy beaches of Mandrem in Goa, India, JoGa Beats now has a new home on The White isle.

Having spent the winter in India fusing her three biggest passions: Music, Dance & Yoga, Jo felt a new home was also required to give her classes the best platform and foundation to let them grow organically, in the sunshine in Ibiza!

Her first session was at the brand new market in Ibiza’s Old Town and JoGa Beats will be back again this weekend.

Called Natural Is, it has the full support of the Healing Ibiza festival and much of the same team on board giving treatments, massages and selling healthy treats to roll you into your weekend on the right foot.

JoGa Beats kicks off at 12pm and is totally FREE, just like this taster class on Jo’s Mixcloud page.

 

JoGa Beats Dance weekender
Aug 2013 03

As a warm up for Bestival, JoGa Beats is holding a dance weekender in Shoreham, Kent this month.

The weekend kicks off with some wholesome hearty, Indian homemade goodness to fire up your belly and your passion, from the inside out.

After a late afternoon lunch we have a restorative yoga session on Friday night, to gear us up for Saturdays dance-a-thon!

Saturday morning kicks off with JoGa Beats and after breakfast, Nathan takes over the 18th Century dance space at The Quadrangle Trust.

Exercises from contemporary dance are used for improved alignment and the release of tension, promoting economy of movement and ease of expression in more freeform dance and group improvisations.

Individually, in partners and in groups he will use imagery to connect us with both our inner space and our outer environment in a playful and joyous approach.

The evenings will again be restorative with Laura Smail leading our yoga practice, before we sit down to another feast for the body and Soul.

Sunday will also see Jo test out her workshops for Bestival, using the beat of her music led practice, to link our breath to the flow, in a unique and meditative twist on our usual vinyasa flow sessions.

Sundays workshop with Nathan will again build on Saturdays sequencing and ideas and the weekend will finish off with afternoon Tea before check out at 3pm.

JoGa Beats @ Healing Ibiza
Mar 2014 21

JoGa Beats will take place at the Healing Ibiza festival for the second year running Sunday  May 12 at 6pm  2013.

Jo is delighted to form part of the yoga teaching team at this year’s event once again after opening proceedings at the festival last year.

She was  inspired to make her move to the island after attending the festival  in October 2012 and having her eyes opened to a whole new side of the island & meeting like minded spirits and souls…some of whom she caught up with last year to preview the event:
