There’s no doubt that the Flow After Dark silent yoga disco series has taken Australia by storm, hosting sold out events across Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast and luckily for anyone who is yet to give it a go, there will be 2 more events being held in October this year.
‘We started out with a small event for clients in February last year and thanks to the power of social media, the concept just took off! Before we knew it we were holding bigger events and kept having to find bigger venues to fit everyone’ says Kate Kendall, yoga instructor and co founder of Flow After Dark.
‘Anyone who has taken one of my classes will know that I’m passionate about making yoga approachable and light hearted. It should be fun, not taken too seriously and a tool that we use to amplify connection to self and others’
‘Flow After Dark was born from this idea and continues to grow. It is literally my favourite event and something that absolutely everyone, no matter what their level of experience, can participate in.’
So if you are new to the concept, here is all you need to know!
1. It’s an event
I think people are craving soul-expanding experiences like this and as Flow After Dark is not something that you can do everyday, I think it really amplifies the connection and energy within the participants.
A lot of thought and time goes into these events to ensure that they have the right energy, are held in the right space energetically and that the surroundings are inspiring. Our goal is to create a really special experience that gets people talking.
2. You will feel more connected to the instructor
At the events you will be loaned a pair of Silent Sounds noise cancelling headphones and when you wear them, you can literally just hear my voice whispering directly into your ear accompanied by music from DJ James Mac.
You won’t have strain to hear the instructions as the class is literally delivered straight through your wireless headphone to you. Just like a private yoga session!
3. Lose your inhibitions
The beauty of Flow After Dark is that because everyone’s wearing Silent Sounds headphones you literally can’t hear anything other than myself and the music so there is no need to worry about how your breathing or how your ‘omm’ sounds to anyone else. Yet you still get to experience a connection with those around you as you are moving in sync and all with the same intention.
4. It’s different and fun
I think that Australians really like to try new things when it comes to health and fitness, so when you introduce a DJ and lights to a yoga class it certainly entices people.
We have also chosen to go with a vinyasa flow style of class which is great for people at all levels as you can go as hard as you like, or you can take it easy while you are still working out the poses.
Wed 4th October , 7pm- 8:30pm
