Rey Cardenas

I was born and raised in Austin and am thankful to have grown up in this wonderfully inspirational city. After years of playing poker professionally left me feeling isolated and out of balance, I turned to yoga with hopes of regaining a positive perspective.

I quickly fell in love with the practice and the sense of peace that it helped me to discover. I was drawn to Black Swan because of its unique philosophy that yoga should be accessible to everyone.

Participating in Black Swan's teacher training impacted my life in such a profoundly positive way and deepened my desire to share the offerings of yoga with others. I'm grateful to continue this journey with an amazing community of teachers and students.

Festival Workshop: Ecstatic Wave Dance

Dance can be deeply moving for the body, mind, and spirit. It is a form of yoga that can awaken our higher states of awareness and bring personal transformation. In the first hour of this session, I will help us tap into this energy by guiding us through a flowing asana practice.

Once our bodies are warm and energized, we will then be lead into an Ecstatic Wave dance with MbiraMe. As the music glides us into a state of deep alignment and self connection, you have permission to dance your dance in a safe, dynamic group setting. All expression of
movements are welcome and encouraged.

Lineage: Hatha/Ecstatic Dance
