Conscious partying is already building momentum. The pre-work sunrise Morning Gloryville Brighton rave went from strength to strength last year, attracting big DJ names such as Rob Da Bank and Andy Barlow from Lamb, but the Nine Lives Yoga Rave signals the start of healthier nights out to come.  

Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or an old school raver, all are warmly welcome to come along on 7 February and experiment with conscious partying the booze free, drug free Yoga Rave bliss .  

Cat Duval, founder of Nine Lives Yoga and director of the Yoga Rave reflect on the origins of this new conscious party scene: 

“I spent the best part of my twenties in clubs loving the rave and dance music scene and I discovered yoga nearly 12 years ago. I came out of my first yoga class feeling as high on prana as I had been after a rave. This was a pure natural high and made me more connected to everyone around me and got me out of my head and into my body. It literally changed my life and I am inspired to share that vibe. With UV, audio visual effects inside a beautiful church space in February it’s about tapping into the deep meditative state of yoga practice and matching it with the elation and connectedness of a rave to come together and let loose.”
