Dorian's Live Neosoul and Yoga with De Jur: THE SUPERCHILL CANDLELIGHT YOGA SESSION
Participants will move through a 60-minute candlelit superchill yin - gentle, therapeutic, slow thoughtful movements with lots of breathing and body sensing - yoga flow led by De Jur while being serenaded in a soulful stereo sauna of live vocals with conscious uplifting lyrics set to instrumental neosoul/ smooth jazz tracks by indie neosoul artist 'Dorian'! Complimentary Fair Trade chocolate and superchilled organic coconut water will be served post-flow!
Yoga Teacher, De Jur has been a yoga devotee since 2001 after major surgery. Her yoga path continues to be a personal exploration and evolution. That evolution inspired her to become a yoga therapist trained at Loyola Marymount University. She struck up a friendship with a yoga teacher that offers classes in the CSEC unit (Commercially Sexually Exploited Children) at juvenile hall. That friendship sparked an interest that created a deep dive into learning everything she could about sex and human trafficking, trauma, how it affects victims and survivors and how yoga can help with embodiment, self-regulation and heal trauma. This specialized training aided her in finding her niche to serve at-risk, under-resourced and highly traumatized communities and populations that show up with a myriad of emotional, physical and psychological damage that yoga can help.
She teaches youth in the juvenile justice system, probation camps and its staff, shelters, group homes, mental health centers, direct services programs, and incarcerated and formerly incarcerated adults around LA County. De Jur is humbled and grateful to call Hala Khouri, Dr. Larry Payne and James Fox her teachers and mentors in victim centered trauma informed, therapeutic, accessible yoga. De Jur is a contributor to the Yoga Service Council’s best practices book series “Best Practices for Yoga in the Criminal Justice System”. She moonlights as a flight attendant. De Jur loves the work that she does.
