GIVE THANX ~ Fantuzzi Concert!

Warrior ONE Yoga Orlando & LDRSHP Collective are hosting a high-energy concert & dance party fun-raiser/fund-raiser featuring FANTUZZI to benefit The Zebra Coalition.

26% of LGBTQ+ youth who come out to their parents are told to leave home. The holidays are a really hard time not to have support, a family, a home & warm meals. A portion of the proceeds for this event are being donated to support thanksgiving/holiday meals for LGBTQ+ folx, especially youth, who need some extra support. Notice the X in “Thanx” - In the LGBTQ+ community, the X represents the opportunity for inclusion - it creates gender neutrality for non-binary identifying people (i.e. folx, womxn, latinx, etc).

Fantuzzi is a 21st century Shaman-Showman of the highest order…”A Cultural Icon”. His music is Latin, Raggae, Afro-Funk with a Mystic Twist! Learn more about Fantuzzi & his music at Fantuzzi Music , FB FantuzziMusic2, Youtube Fantuzzi-Music.

$25 minimum donation

Inspirit Kirtan w/ To Bring Devotion
Oct

7:00 PM19:00

Inspirit Kirtan w/ To Bring Devotion

Kirtan is the Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of Devotion) practice of call & response chanting. When we sing & chant mantras together, our minds quiet, our hearts open and we perceive the truth of our oneness. It is a dynamic form of meditation that opens up our wellspring of infinite love! Singing these powerful Names & mantras is also a way to connect deeply to the power of our authentic voice. Let us raise the vibration high together!

To Bring Devotion blends ancient, Eastern mantras from Hindu, Buddhist & Sikh traditions with contemporary, Western rock & pop original melodies. Dana Kaplan's soulful voice will guide you deep into the practice. TBD is: Dana on lead vocals, harmonium & keyboard, Vick DeGiorgio on bass, Michael Himes on tabla & Richard Schooping on response vocals.

All are welcome. No experience necessary.

Register online at Inspirit Yoga or through your MindBody app at Inspirit Yoga Studio to reserve your spot. $20

Dana Kaplan, E-RYT 500 will lead you through a relaxing yin series preparing you for a night of deep sleep all set to the heavenly music & healing mantras of world-beat musician, singer-songwriter & yoga festival producer Wynne Paris.

As you hold these poses on the floor for several minutes at a time without muscle tension, the incredible musical stylings of Wynne Paris will allow you to melt deeply into the practice. Dana will lend her voice on harmony too. She and Wynne have been singing together for almost a decade.

About the musician: Wynne Paris has recorded and performed with many of the most beloved and renowned yoga music artists (Krishna Das, GuruGanesha Singh, Bhagavan Das, Shyam Das, Dave Stringer, Girish) and has taken center stage and/or produced some of the country's most well-known yoga festivals and venues: Bhakti Fest, Omega, Kripalu, Earth Dance, Lovelight Festival, to name a few. Wynne resides in Maryland and we are blessed to have him share his heart and talents with us on his summer tour through Florida!
