Dynamicism and synchronicity

We met in December of 2013. Within seconds of talking to each other, it was clear that a new friendship was born. Ry is a DJ but also a yoga teacher and we got to know each other through that community, very quickly building a close relationship. Our friendship developed into something much greater, we had created a sisterhood. Both being creatives and driven by inspiration, we knew we wanted to work together, we just hadn’t quite figured out what that looked like yet.

When I was approached to teach at a festival, without missing a beat, Ry was like “duh, how bout I DJ for you?!?” This was it! The opportunity to create together was right at our fingertips. We got to work. We started sequencing music to movement and carefully crafted our class. It made sense to do a dress rehearsal and make sure we had our shit together. So we invited some homies over to Ry’s house for a little yoga session.

Eight friends arrived for class, we prepped with candles, sage and tuning forks to set the mood, and we had fresh watermelon ready for after. Class started in savasana, the music dropped, Ry and I looked at each other knowing magic was about to take place. Beats Balance Flow was born.


After a few classes in Ryan’s garage, we very quickly developed into full event. We create an environment for yoga, conscious conversation, socializing and networking. Driven by women entrepreneurs. Vintage clothing booth. Medicinal marijuana educator. Hot tea. Hard kombucha. Homemade salsa. Raw vegan chef. Crafted oils. Vegan Chocolatier. Expert Picklemeister. Crystals. Candles. I could go on. All of our artisans offer a service or a sample of something to get acquainted, some even create experiences right on sight.

We’ve cultivated a really dope supportive community of teachers, students, yogis, painters, musicians, ceramicists, jewelry makers, beverage creators, artisans, INTERESTING HUMANS!
