Showga Presents: Reset and Reconnect w/ Musical Guest El Elle
November 7, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm$20
SHOWGA is an event series focused on empowerment through the senses, incorporating yoga, live music, lights, aromatherapy, and visualization. SHOWGA draws from the systems of yoga, western psychology, and performance arts. Participants learn to work with each sense as a tool for wellness, stress reduction, increased performance, and creative flow.
Each SHOWGA experience is focused around a theme, which is explored via the 5 senses. SHOWGA always features a live music performance from a range of genres, musicians and bands. Performers weave the given theme into their sets.
The theme for this month’s SHOWGA is “Reset and Reconnect”. We can decide to reset and reconnect to ourselves and what’s truly important to us in any moment. We’ll work with breath, movement and the 5 senses as tools for this reconnection, and as reminders of the wonder of being alive.
Our musical guest for this month’s SHOWGA is El Elle. Lisa Light is an Oakland, CA based musician, songwriter, dancer, and recording artist. Soon after earning her degree in biology at Stanford University, Light found her true calling as a musician. She dropped out of SF State while pursuing a 2nd degree in classical violin performance in order to go on tour and record with her first band. THE LOVEMAKERS enjoyed an international following and released four studio albums, including critically acclaimed “Times of Romance” on Interscope Records. She has lent talent to many other musician’s records as well such as Blondie and Denmark’s Dreampop darlings, Sleep Party People.
Ms. Light released EL ELLE, her first solo LP in 2011, and has continued to collaboratively perform under El Elle moniker with rotating musicians and dancers. Light also performs as Material Girl, a Madonna Tribute Band, and founded Dreampop band Garlands, who released their LP in 2013. When she is not making music, she is dancing to it, or writing about it at Pandora Media as part of the music analysis team. Light is also a yoga teacher and a dancefloor addict.
