She is passionate about practicing the philosophy and ethics of yoga off the mat, and currently studies with Seane Corn and Off The Mat, Into The World. Her teaching is inspired and influenced by many styles of yoga and teachers including Iyengar, Ashtanga, Tantra, vinyasa, Kundalini. Her offerings are deeply rooted with her formal teachers and yoga philosophy, but her inspiration and teachings are often derived from real life experience.

EAST FOREST

( boise, idaho )
Since 2008, East Forest has been the leader of underground ‘sound meditation’ ceremonies around the world. While his “blissful” (NPR) and “beautiful wash” (Paste) of ‘electro-acoustic orchestral ambient pop’ can be contextualized along with Aphex Twin, Philip Glass and Sigur Ros, the fundamental mission of his project is to create sonic architecture for others to explore their inner space.

Thus, it is a process of creating thresholds for the listener to cross over — whether through his music, ceremonies, retreats, podcast, meditations/talks or myriad other offerings. His albums and collaborations have charted #1 on iTunes three times (August and May 2019, Aug 2016) and have been among Billboard‘s top ten.

OLIWA

( ojai, california )
Oliwa is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and DJ Oliver Newell. After wandering out of the LA psych-rock music scene to the idyllic mountain village of Ojai, he found himself exploring his own genre of deep house music, gently approaching the techno pathocracy from a nurturing place of love and earnest creativity. Endowed with a rich musical performance and composition background, a fascination with the future, and the earthen sensibility of the California coast and its denizens, Oliwa’s unique world of electronic music explores subtle and fantastical landscapes as he weaves together meditative textures with complex rhythms from an array of influences. Twangy and skanky, funky and spacious, elaborate and deep; he strives to inspire dance floors through transcendent epiphanies and emotional release.

GOOD BOI DREAM BOAT

( denver, colorado )
Like all Beauty in Nature, Good Boi Dream Boat came into form without any preconceived expectations or goal in mind. Rather, it blossomed to fill a void that was ready to be whole. A routine hang between Jake Miller (The Still Tide / Esme Patterson) and Austen C Grafa (Grayson County Burn Ban / Bud Bronson & The Good Timers) turned serendipitous when they found themselves on an unexpected musical journey that can only be described as “ambient yoga-core.”

Both Miller and Grafa are avid yoga enthusiasts, but with so many other hobbies and passions yoga has remained a foundational “behind the scenes” element of their identities. Therein lies the uniqueness and authenticity of this newest project — Good Boi Dream Boat is yoga music for the everyday human in this world.
