Description

The Social Yogi is hosting a night filled with music, dance and ecstatic transformation! Join us for an evening of the Brazilian social dance known as Zouk.

Tickets: $10 in advance / $15 at the door


WHAT IS ZOUK?

In Antillean French Creole, Zouk means party! Zouk is both a dance and a type of music. This sensual and energetic dance has roots in Brazilian Lambada and Samba, while the music has French Caribbean roots. Zouk has a characteristic wave-like movement, elongated steps and striking hair movements by the lady. The movements are a rhythmic side to side and a rippling forward and back motion which are easy to pick up and create a fun, free-flowing dance that everyone can get into.

WHAT IS THE SOCIAL YOGI YOU ASK?

The Social Yogi is a project in Edmonton that works to create social events for local yogis.

The Social Yogi desires to see a yoga community in Edmonton that is alive, collaborative and growing. A yoga community where studios collaborate with the non-yoga scene (e.g. permaculture, arts, dance, indigenous, holistic scene, activist scene etc.) and help foster a diverse, resilient community.

New to the yoga scene...or seasoned yogi looking for a place to be with like-minded people outside the studio?

Well look no further...The Social Yogi community is a perfect place to get the answers you seek and the support you desire!
