Emerald Adams, Katarzyna Krilov
With sixteen years of immersion in yoga and a decade of teaching experience, Emerald has crafted a pattern of practice both professionally grounded and eclectically unique. In devotion to the potency of the practice, she has undertaken countless trainings (including a five hundred hour/certificate IV teacher training with Byron Yoga), and attended innumerable classes and workshops revolving around yoga, conscious movement, dance, pranayama, interpersonal connection and meditation practices in order to inform and progress that which she shares. Each of Emerald's workshops reflect this collated collection of learnings, and Emerald seeks to responsively tailor her classes to nurture the needs of each entity present. Emerald has over many years offered her workshops - nude and clad - at an array of festivals (Earth Frequency, Dragon Dreaming, Regrowth, Burning Seed, Origins of Entropy, Connections, Psyfari, Subsonic etcetera), and most frequently from her cosy south coast home. Emerald has also had experience in creating and holding workshop festival spaces at Psyfari and Dragon Dreaming. She highly values mutual evolutions of mind and the nourishing of tangible elements of self, and gently weaves philosophy throughout each bass-accompanied ceremony of movement. Katarzyna's relationship with music is deep and ever-evolving. She cares intimately for complexity, detail, and immersive experience, and has for years infused her work - mixing and producing - with these values. With experience spanning genres and creatively cradling expressive movement, Katarzyna often offers her skill to accompany yoga, ecstatic dance, and meditation.
Embodied Bass Yoga
Emerald's bass-cradled workshops encourage reflection, expression and whole-body immersion. This guided experience incorporates breath, music, meditation, and dance-inspired yet classically-grounded movement. Each workshop responds to the beings present, but every practice involves a liberating, playful exploration of body and consciousness. The practice Emerald offers implores that those who share it to shift away from the performative and competitive, and instead embed themselves in the depths of dynamic experience.
