Jivana is a multi-dimensional being, playful spiritual artivist, and tantrika-yogini. Jivana considers art a spiritual path, which includes the art of yoga. With the idea that “I am Art”, Jivana as an avant-garde yogini applies her philosophy of karma yoga to artivism. 

Jivana uses writing, dance-performance art, digital media, and collaborations with artists to raise awareness about important issues, inspire people to feel empowered, and act selflessly to change the world.

Through her karma yoga work, Jivana is a living example and inspiration for others to lead a more conscious, intentional, beautiful, and blissful existence while balancing the call to help save the planet in their own unique and creative way. Her teaching is heart-centered, Earth connected and reverent.

Poi Workshops With Eli

This is a beginners workshop to learn the basic movements for Poi. During these two 60 min classes, you will learn and practice basic Poi movements such as parallel movements, as well as fun and rhythmic forward and backward moves…. PLUS some cool tricks such as Pendulums Reel, the Butterfly forward and backward, and the Butterfly behind the head.

The movements in these classes help with coordination, will allow you to tap into your inner performer, and they are a GREAT WORKOUT! 

What Is Poi

Poi is a form of dance where weights on the ends of tethers are swung through rhythmical patterns. Poi comes from the Maori people of New Zealand. For this class you can use sock with balls inserted into them, or something else that will add some weight. 

After these classes you might be motivated to continue practicing and improving your skills… You never know, maybe one day you’ll be performing at Anamaya!

Dealing With Our Doubt Demons

Doubt Demons… Gremlins… Negative Voices In Our Heads…

We all deal with self-doubt and negative chatter. In this fun and creative workshop you will become better acquainted with your Doubt Demon(s) in order to help you navigate this relationship. Hosted by Kelsey Matheson, one of the Founders & Owners of Anamaya – Kelsey will walk you through a process of better understanding the fears that hold you back, and create a healthier, more productive, and creative way of dealing with that self-doubt when it starts to whisper in your ear.

“I’m not good enough”
“I’m not smart enough”
“I can’t do this!”

Sounds familiar? This Doubt Demon workshop will allow you to dive deep into the behavior that keeps you stuck, and it will help you recognize and effectively deal with self-sabotage and the limiting beliefs we all deal with on a daily basis.

We are excited to introduce you to the rest of the community!


Remember, if you can’t make the classes live we will be recording them so you can watch them at your own convenience at another time.
