    Ol' J Jizzle has been spinning anything he can get his hands on for the past 10 years. From his humble beginning, spinning a stick in his backyard because he had no job. This hobby turned into a full blown addiction that no rehab centre would take him in for. After teaching workshops at some of the biggest flow arts gatherings around the world, J man is back home and here to teach you how to move!

    Jessy Spin is a world-renowned fire dancer and flow artist. Her diverse experience has seen her perform and teach classes in eight different countries, including working in Malaysia with Asia’s largest modern circus troupe Psycusix. Her art aims to inspire others, perhaps unlocking a fiery desire to learn, to create and to take a step outside of one’s comfort zone.
    In 2020, Jessy founded FireLily Dance – an online studio where you can learn dance, fire, and flow. It is now Jessy's mission to cultivate a global community of artists: #FireLilyFamily.
    Jessy’s unique style and movement quality, as well as the upbeat and positive energy she exudes in her classes, has seen her social media presence exponentially grow – Jessy now has over 30 thousand Instagram followers and over 6 thousand YouTube subscribers supporting her on her journey.

    Louisa has spent the last six years of her life traveling South America, Southeast Asia, India and Australia. Learning about traditional sustainability practices, studying yogic knowledge, participating in shamanic rituals, and working with traditional medicines over time has fostered a deep relationship with the earth that she calls home.
    Her interest in philosophy and psychology found its perfect marriage with ancient healing practices in this workshop.
    Though these practices differ in their application, they all share the same core message. One of connection, one of compassion, one of healing. She is committed to sharing knowledge with anyone who is seeking a higher path.
