Yoga Rave web
Experience the ecstatic effect of ancient mantras as chanted by saints and sages, set to the modern techno trance dance beats, and in a spiritualized "yoga" setting. Charu Das & Jai Krishna from the  "Festival of Colors" will partner with Ami Hana of Rawxtract to provide the sounds, lights, and images, commentary, some live vocals and music to go with the techno beats.The organizer of the Great Salt Lake Yoga Fest (Labor Day Weekend), Santosh Maknikar, along with other yoga teachers, male and female, plan to punctuate the lively dance music with periods of calm, mediation, breathing exercises, and asanas. Dancers Ankith Ray as well as the teen students of Divya Narayana will be on stage to lead with Bhangra, Bollywood, and Bhakti Steps. There will be lots of love, hugs for all, new friends to meet, great vegetarian finger foods, fresh squeezed juices, and plenty of opportunity to "leave it all on the dance floor."
