Summer Meltdown is grateful to these community members who have chosen to spread their skills at Summer Meltdown this year!
Rise & Shine Yoga
With Bryan Fuss
Rise and shine yoga offers festival attendees an opportunity to recharge and reset both the body and mind before setting forth on their day. These classes are open to all levels of practitioners; from first timers to advanced students. Yoga is about increasing awareness. In support of this idea, grander themes will be incorporated into classes which students can carry and apply into their lives once they step off the mat. Classes will be vinyasa flow structured and leave students feeling energized and stress-free. Be prepared to sweat a little, laugh a lot, and maybe learn something about yourself. Namaste.
With Shanogi Yoga
Slowing down yoga movement, with a deep focus on breath and meditation. Restore yourself.
With Erica Kutz
The root philosophy underlying Mountainmind is ‘be the change, see the change’. Choosing an intention each day, to connect with your purpose as an individual, and how you can make an impact.
Daily challenges are part of our journey towards an enlightened vision of clarity. Solving problems, uncovering solutions, and expanding our consciousness is part of the evolution process as human beings.
Lessons I have learned in the outdoors, meshed with eastern philosophy, have resulted in a series of metaphors that I utilize in guided meditations taking place after a daily yoga practice. These meditations will be provided as optional offerings after morning yoga in the late night tent.
With Bruce Horowitz

We will cover ethics, principles and techniques so you can craft your personal strategy to be part of the Deep Green Economy. Leave this workshop totally stoked to be part of the solution!
