SHOWGA is an event series focused on empowerment through the senses, incorporating yoga, live music, lights, aromatherapy, and visualization. Participants learn to work with each sense as a tool for wellness, stress reduction, increased performance, and creative flow. Each SHOWGA experience is focused around a theme, which is explored via the 5 senses. SHOWGA always features a live music performance from a range of genres, musicians and bands. Performers weave the given theme into their sets.
The theme for February's Oakland Showga is "Exploring Boundaries and Edges". We will learn some techniques for energetic protection and tidiness, and we will exolore the power of working right on the edge of discomfort. We must challenge ourselves in order for growth to take place, but it's also important to know our limits and not push ourselves to the point of forcing.
We are thrilled to announce musial guest Opaque Couché for this event. Opaque Couché is the current electronic solo project of Lumerians co-founder, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Jason Miller. Inspired by the rhythms of wind, rain, the commonalities between disparate ceremonial rituals, pulses of existential consternation, and gas station food.
