ABOUT HAYLEY EBERSOLE (Yoga Instructor)
Hayley offers a path to strength, self-confidence, and awe for the miraculous mechanics of the human body by creating an empowering environment to explore your body-mind from the inside out. Her juicy alignment-based flow class is permeated with her devotion to intelligent movement, radical self-care and the cycles of the natural world, inviting you into intimacy with all parts of yourself through the sweet simplicity of the breath.
With an attitude of compassion, curiosity, and playfulness, she has an uncanny ability to invite students into the realm of the somanauts, those who are curious about and explore their inner space both on and off the mat. This curiosity becomes intimacy with our inner body, which translates as greater peace, more easeful relationships and fluidity, joy, and intelligence of movement in class, at work and at play.
ABOUT RYAN ANTHONY MARTINEZ (Artist)
Artist, Ryan Anthony Martinez, paints from a place that celebrates his love and appreciation for the progressive energy of music, nature, and life... Seeking to capture and honor spirit through expression of what and where he paints, Ryan uses a raw minimalist approach to acquire inspiration through impression, preferably in a musical setting while creating a visual connection between artist and viewer, as well as a poignant tribute to who he his painting, all usually while dancing 😉

Ryan has also been asked & commissioned to paint the memorial portraits of friends, dj’s, and icons, we’ve lost along the years at several live events here in the Bay. As an Oakland resident, Ryan looks to expand his artistic reach, vision, and network by continuing to honor spaces & the spirit of The Bay Area through his work and shining light on those who continue to help set the tone, spread love, and respect others.
ABOUT NATHAN WYMAN (Artist)
Nathan Wyman's artwork is a collective contemplative collaboration with the visual vibrations and primordial patterns infused within our planet and deep within each of us to discover, and is a reflection of our symmetrically, and symbiotically synchronized re-evolutionary spiritual connection to the languages of nature.
ABOUT HAMID NAEMEH (Artist)
Hamid Naemeh is a multi-medium artist from Iran based in California. He is best known for his paintings and installation made from scrap wood and other materials found and built up. With art incorporating dimensions inspired by the art in 80’s, the dead and modern/cultural patterns. Combining these methods; Hamid builds an environment with art that lets people interact with the place as well as bringing other music artists to add to the place by bringing their vibe to add to the place. An environment that is set to change with every event and every person contributing. Unity is one.
ABOUT URSULA YOUNG (artist)
Over the past twenty years illustrator, painter and designer Ursula Xanthe Young has become known for her unique flowery urban fairytale illustrations. Graduate of Parsons School of Design (Illustration, BFA, New York 1996) Ursula exhibits frequently in the Bay Area and has sold paintings in New York, London, Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong and all across the U.S. She shows most frequently with Luna Rienne Gallery in San Francisco.�
Ursula finds inspiration in the organic yet urban landscape of San Francisco and its surrounds; the crossed wires, Victorian buildings, and fog-filled horizons, that are often the backdrop to her brightly painted doe-eyed flower girls. She is also highly influenced by her travels to the far-flung reaches of the globe and the variety of colorful characters that she encounters - both real and imagined - along the way.
