Yin & Yang Sound Session
24 July 3pm – 6pm
With Sarah & live music with D.J.Daddy Longlegs
“The body benefits from movement, and the mind benefits from stillness” – Sakyong Mipham
Join Sarah for a 3 hour movement and sound journey through the energies of yin + yang. This session will be accompanied by the supportive soundscapes of DJ Daddy Longlegs.
You will be guided through Meditation Breathwork Vinyasa Flow Yin Yoga ∙ The concept of yin + yang is that in duality we experience wholeness as both energies are inseparable yet interpenetrating. One can not exist without the other. These opposite yet complementary energies reside within all things and we encounter examples of them every day like the sun and moon, light and darkness, activity and rest, expansion and contraction, growth and decay.
So how does this concept support our movement practice? ∙ By weaving the warm, dynamic, fluid movements of vinyasa flow with the deep, restful, and rejuvenating postures of yin yoga so that we can attune to creating harmony within the body + mind. ∙
What is YIN YOGA? Practiced meditatively using long-held poses with a focus of releasing muscle tension to strengthen and flex our connective, fascia and ligament tissues, mobilize our joints, and stimulate and soothe the nervous system. This practice helps to accumulate the vital life force (qi) within and to nourish and clear the meridian lines that house these energies in the body. With the support of our breath, yin turns our attention inwards allowing us to connect with the source of our life energy and to create harmony within. ∙
What is YANG YOGA? An active, dynamic, movement practice that targets the muscle groups, bones and marrow to stimulate inner heat and energy within the physiological system. This practice helps to spark the fire within, to challenge the mind, and lean into our personal power. Working to build strength while harmonizing into playful flow with breath. ∙
SOUND SESSION Hovering through frequencies of downbeat bass, various sub-textures & roots culture – Daddy Longlegs sets are always a carefully woven web of forward-thinking electronica. With an ever-evolving intrigue with music, DLL’s reputation as a selecta becomes more recognized with each set. With a host of eminent performances throughout a 15-year career, DLL’s creative orbit has brought him closer to a more ambient/chill artery of sound in recent times – and he is very excited to share and navigate this experience with you! ∙
We hope you’ll join us in this journey of movement + sound! ∙

a new age, intimate music show performed campfire-style
Saturday 7 August 5pm & 7.30m
Come, gather in circle, and immerse yourself in the contemplative songs & storytelling of “Elucidation”, a live show with new and original music written and performed by Cairns local, Belinda Griffin.
The audience is invited to listen and join in with the modern, lyric-driven score, richly imbued with spiritual chants & new age refrains, all wrapped around tales as old as time.
Billed as an immersive, sonic journey from darkness to light, the show recently had two sold-out performances and glowing review at Brisbane’s “Anywhere Festival”. This will be the first time Belinda has performed her show in FNQ, joined by the very talented, Caitlin Quinn.
“Griffin’s music is the perfect blend of the best of Stevie Nicks and Shania Twain. That is, a blend of new age lyricism and honest country melodies. Being able to listen to Griffin explain the intention and imagery of each track made the work equally as intimate as it was cosmic. It truly was the perfect sonic sanctuary.” – review, Anywhere Festival 2021
Date & Times: Saturday 7 August 5:00pm & 7:30pm (1hr show)
Ticket prices: Adult $25 (+BF) no concessions
