INSTRUCTOR: Kaylaira Lea

unnamedKaylaira is a wilderness-bred Mover and Sounder, who from a young age learned to sense the myriad of energies converging and shifting in nature – the fabled woods and dunes along the shores of the Great Lakes in Canada. She understood that we are not separate from the natural world, but part of it. Her love of the wilderness combined with her need to dance inspired Kaylaira to find ways to touch our own personal wilderness through movement, breath and sound to reach a deeper and richly authentic part inside of ourselves.

Kaylaira’s teachings are based on her studies with prominent Movement/Sound/Breath Explorers: Pauline Oliveros (Deep Listening Institute), Emilie Conrad (Continuum Movement), Tom Kenyon (Sound Healer), Master Sha (Healer), Dennis Lewis (Breath Practitioner), Karen Montanaro (Mime Artist), Elisa Lodge (Primal Energetics), Hank Wesselman (Anthropologist and Shaman), John English (Shaman), John-Luke Edwards (Shaman),  Zacciah Blackburn (sound healer, Shaman), as well as Butoh Masers Yoshito Ohno, Diego Pinon and Shinichi lova-Koga.

Kaylaira also has a visual arts degree from Kansas City Art Institute, training and career as a filmmaker in Toronto, training and work in metal sculpture, and several years as a dance-theatre choreographer and director.


This workshop is open to all levels.
