The Center SF Presents: Ecstatic Dance with Yemanjo

The Center SF is proud to bring back its new monthly mid-week, early evening Ecstatic Dance. Our intention is to create more community spaces to safely explore and express ourselves through movement, connection, and dance.

The evening will include a Qi Gong inspired yoga flow with the incredible Chelsea Kirby, followed by a live music electronic set by Yemanjo. To top it off and ground your experience, Chelsea will close the evening with a guided meditation and sound healing.

Yemanjo is a project of DJ, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris in collaboration with some of the best producers in global electronic music today, including Thornato, Lagartijeando, Srikala, Biomigrant, Scott Nice and more. Yemanjo makes "Medicine Music for the 21st century"...writing original songs influenced by shamanic South American sounds, various Afro-Latin rhythms and electronic beats; he spins the sonic universe of Latin America into something completely his own. A live Yemanjo show is an infectious and uplifting experience combining live instrumentation and DJ beat science with live vocals in Spanish, English and Portuguese. Yemanjo's ecstatic dance sets have been enjoyed on both US coasts, in Europe, Bali, and Central America since 2015. When not on tour, Yemanjo can be found an integral part of the emerging conscious dance scene in his adopted home of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.

Chelsea Kirby views sound & movement as sacred expressions of a universal language; a language that unites and empowers people from all backgrounds. She brings the fluidity of sound & movement into her yoga offerings, blending vinyasa with intuitive movement and Qigong to free the spirit and deepen the connection to the subtle energy of the body. As a singer-songwriter, sound-healer & sound-designer, Chelsea's love for both acoustic instrumentation & electronic music moved her to create her current project Arula; a rich interplay of her many influences.

She has studied with many celebrated teachers in the community such as; sound & breath-work under John DeRobertis (The Power of Conscious Singing,) Amber Field (Free your Voice,) and John Beaulieu (Biosonics/Sound). She received her 200hr YTT with Dana Damara in 2016 and has also taken various courses with teachers such as Janet Stone, Ana Forest, Roger Jahnke (Qi Cultivation & Mastery), Michelle Baker (Reiki, Swan River) and studied yoga & meditation in Kerala, India.
