Breathwork with Wellspring New Orleans

4pm - 5:30pm

Join Kathleen Currie of Wellspring New Orleans for a breathwork class - a form of active meditation with roots in ancient Indian pranayama (the study of the breath). As the breather breathes using a 2 stage breath with the guidance of a teacher, the hypothalmus gland releases endorphins which can feel like a flood of energy, emotion, visions, and memories. By releasing these stuck energies, the nervous system is able to release and activate a self-healing process that has a ripple effect on the entire system! These sessions are active, and end with a deep rest with some hands on touch to facilitate release. You will feel lighter, more free, and deeply relaxed after. This modality is safe for anyone, and highly transformative.

Couches ft. Kingsley Ibeneche, Tra$h Magnolia, BLK, Heelturn, Legatron

7:30pm - 11:30pm

Couches seeks to create a relaxed, intimate, comfortable environment for guests to experience a live music performance from emerging artists. We accomplish this through the use of seating (pillows, couches, sometimes beds), decor (candles, lighting, etc.), scents, and tastes (handcrafted cocktails curated specifically for each show.) Our crowd is respectful of each other and the artists performing and appreciate the "turn down" (as opposed to "turn up") aspect of this event.
