Co-founder of Ecstatic Dance Riga, Atmo Chaitanya shares his passion for dance and music between his homeland Latvia, Estonia and the UK.
From a shamanic perspective, Atmo is an ‘ecstasy hunter’, seeking higher states of consciousness through dance, tantra, breathwork and meditation. His love affair with conscious dance started 13 years ago when he attended one of London’s 5Rhythms classes and became a regular practitioner ever since.
“As a dancer, I love the sense of authenticity, connection, openness, joy and freedom on the conscious dancefloor. As a DJ, I love witnessing people allowing themselves to be as they are, in each moment. The connections that spontaneously happen, to their bodies, to the floor, to each other, to the group and beyond.”
