Desert Hearts Springs Festival 2014 Set Times


We are extremely proud to invite you to experience the love, the music, and the magic of our Desert Hearts community as we reunite for another weekend long House & Techno celebration under the stars.

Expect nothing less than incredible music from international and local DJs alike, 24 hours a day on the best Funktion-One sound system the west coast has to offer. Packed to the brim with the most engaging theme camps, beautiful deco, psychedelic art installations, artists, performers, yoga, sound healing, open bars and more, this Desert Hearts is shaping up to be our most monumental event yet.

Fresh off the momentum of our unbelievable One Year Anniversary Festival held on the La Jolla Indian Reservation, we are ecstatic to get back to our roots this time as we set up camp in the true desert of Southern California. Held on private land in Apple Valley, CA about 2 hours from Los Angeles and 3 hours from San Diego, we want to keep this Desert Hearts a bit more underground by keeping the location undisclosed until 24 hours before the event. At that point in time, the address will only be sent to people who have already purchased a ticket.

House, Techno, & Love — This is our religion.

We are all Desert Hearts.

An honest portrayal of a psychedelic life.

“RootsFlow Yoga”
~Lauren Narayani

Restore the Yin power within. A tribal convergence of restoration, cell integration, and meditation.
This class is designed to soothe the nerve endings, the sense organs, and detox vital organs by allowing the body to hold powerful poses, infused with South Indian Mixed Martial arts for Power and Renewal deep within our tissues, so we can drop all our issues…all levels welcome

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Saturday: 12:00 – 1:30 pm
“Kundalini – Awakening the Ten Bodies”
~ Zach Walker

The human psyche is composed of ten separate but interrelated bodies. With the exception of one body, the physical, these bodies are made of light energy. Each of your ten bodies has a gift it gives when activated. Conversely, each brings specific challenges when in a weakened state. Through using kundalini yoga and meditation to strengthen them, they become tools to help you reach your highest potential. This class will focus on a kriya to activate and awaken your ten bodies. We will open by tuning in and then proceed to work through postures ending with a deep relaxation / gong sound bath.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Saturday: 2:00 – 3:30 pm
“Vinyasa Heart Flow” – Gentle to moderate sequence to open and stimulate the heart chakra.
~ Katrina Cydylo

Vinyasa style Yoga class students will begin with grounding and centering breathing and postures. Then we will flow though a gentle to moderatesequence designed to open and stimulate the heart space, or anahata chakra. Eventually the class will explore deeper backbends to allow energy to strongly flow through the heart, while staying grounded. We will finish with a visualization and meditation to notice any physical, mental or emotional shifts, and take a restful and rejuvenating savasana. The heart chakra is the place in ourselves that lets us open to and connect with the world around us. Opening this center lets us feel love and compassion, and be vulnerable while being self empowered.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Saturday: 4:00- 5:30 pm
“Ignite Communication and Spark Your Creativity” – Working to active self-expression and etheric communication.
~ Heather Power and Sina Siar

Sat nam! Spring is upon us! Now is the time to plant the seeds of intention for what you would like to manifest this year. The year 2014 is the year of 7. This is the year of locking in who you want to be and channeling your purest truth (sat nam). Our class will include working with the pranic life force, inner creativity, and the sound current (naad) to active self-expression and etheric communication.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Saturday: 6:00- 7:30 pm
“Vinyasa Flow” – Focus on creating a place of self-love, self-acceptance and self-exploration.
~ Irya Danyuk.

Vinyasa Flow is a sequence that helps build strength, increase flexibility and find focus. In this sequence the breath is linked to movement, and we focus on creating heat within the body. This sequence incorporates various chest and hip opening asanas to relieve the tension and stress within.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sunday: 10:00 – 11:30 am
“Core Synergistics” – Yoga, Pilates, and core strengthening exercises.
~ Brittany Kearney

This class is a combination of yoga, pilates, and core strengthening exercises. These exercises are for those who seek balance in life, wanting to change their lives for the better by enhancing the mind while strengthening the body. My goal in this class is to promote flexibility, help prevent injury, and increase total body strength in a way that is tailored to your individual needs and goals. All levels of experience and physical condition are welcome!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sunday: 12:00 – 1:30 pm
“Ying/Yang Hearts”
~ Maddy Rolison

While we are sure to enjoy dancing all weekend long, our hips and backs will be bearing the brunt of our continued movement. This class will relieve our physical tensions while opening our hearts and allowing us to slow down and gaze inward. Join us for a relaxing and playful yin/ yang style yoga class beginning with a vinyasa flow to revitalize and energize our bodies. Next we will slow down with a yin flow that will allow for a deeper, more reflective space. With this duality we will create the perfect balance for an open heart and mind, as we cultivate and receive healing energy.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sunday: 2:00 – 3:00 pm
“Galactivation Vibrational Sound Healing”
~Shane Chenephisal

Come and enjoy a restorative galactivation vibrational experience with the crystal + tibetan singing bowls, cosmic chimes, crystal pyramids, aromatherapy, and guided meditation. Utilizing 99.9% pure tonal frequency of our chakras and the 432hz harmonic of light, this sound bath will cleanse and purge emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual blockages while re-tuning & calibrating dimensional frequencies for healing and balance. As the chakras are cleansed and purified of any imbalanced energies, a blissful, transforming and uplifting experience awaits the mind, body, emotions and spirit. Students will feel more grounded, aligned, and balanced for their life experience! All creeds, paths, vibrations, and frequencies are welcome. Blessings!
