We are extremely excited for the second edition of Slow Food & Yoga Festival to take place in Gili Air, October 17th-20th, 2019. Not only because the last edition was such a wonderful time, where amazing people from all over the world showed up to share their experiences and love with us, but also because THIS time, we have new and inspiring people joining the event.
One of the new and interesting yoga practitioners we have on board for this edition in Levi Banner
. Starting from being a breakdancer, he made a huge lifestyle change back in 2007, when located in Arizona. Levi Banner is telling us more about his journey and how it all began:
“I started my yoga journey, because I was a dancer. Me and my friends had a dance crew, and we would stretch before and after training. One of my friends was getting into yoga a little bit, and he had me close my eyes and take a breathe in a yoga way - and I just felt this spark of energy and this awareness, that I had never noticed before. It changed my life from that moment."
“So from there, I explored yoga as a dancer and they went hand in hand for many years. Then yoga took charge more so than my dance training and competition and as a teacher. Right around that time, I found ecstatic dance instead. So things shifted from doing training for hip hop dance and breakdancing, to loosening up through ecstatic dance and going deep inside through yoga and meditation. And pranayama - the breath.”
