Lightning in a Bottle Reveals Yoga & Movement, Art & Interactivity, and ArtClave & Live Painting Lineups for 2022 Edition

These health and wellness activities at Lightning in a Bottle are going to be so much fun! You’ll be so relaxed and ready to have the best time! Do LaB, originators and creators of multi-faceted boutique festival Lightning in a Bottle, recently announced its Yoga & Movement, Art & Interactivity, and ArtClave & Painting lineups ahead of its 2022 edition. This Memorial Day weekend, attendees will have the opportunity to relax and let their souls unwind! There will be so much to do including interactive yoga, dance, movement, art, and healing classes. This is in addition to the recently announced Compass Learning & Culture programming and diverse musical lineup.

Attendees can take part in a number of revitalizing and mood-boosting activities. They all take place under the transcendent and colorful structures of the Do LaB to give each activity that added boost. All of the activities will be led by renowned movement practitioners. Check out the classes and workshops such as Amplified Yoga led by Donovan McGrath with Rob Garza (of Thievery Corporation), Ignite Abundance – Lakshmi Yoga Flow with Susanna Barkataki, Messy Asana: Unperfecting Your Flow with Tejal Patel, ACROYOGA 101: From Fear to Flying FUN! with Andrew 7 Sealy, and Deep Exhale – a yoga dance experience with Cristi Christensen & Marques Wyatt.

That isn’t all though because the offerings continue with Kundalini: Total System Recharge with Jai Dev Singh, Embodied Resilience Yoga with Michelle Nayeli Bouvier, Hoop ALIVE with Anah aka Hoopalicous, Serpentine Dream with Auberon, Sunday Stomp Ecstatic Dance with Dragonfly, and Unlock Your Shakti: Yoga, Fusion Belly Dance, & Flow with Deb Rubin among many more.

LIB has also announced immersive Art & Interactivity programming of all kinds.

I’m not joking when I say they are offering countless ways for attendees to chart their own unique visual and experiential journey. For example, this includes the Fire Flow Zone, where the community can come together and have awe-inspiring nights of fire dancing while sharing their talent in a safe space. Add that to the Playa Relámpago beach house, which provides an inclusive space celebrating Latinx, African and Indigenous cultures. Attendees can find rest and relaxation in spaces like The Giving Tree, Gong Sanctuary, or Meditation Grove. Looking for a game? Pay a visit to Frick Frack and place your bets. So much to see and do! The Fungineers Ice Cream Truck will be making its rounds. Enjoy its psychedelic hip-hop puppet show for adults while the Vibeapple pineapple art car will be cruising around and spreading its good vibe. The endless amount of options provide what many consider a festival within a festival. You will never be bored!

More highlights include Dün, an immersive floating video sculpture that was designed and built by Do LaB. This structure features more than 20 LED bars with beautiful video projection, as seen at RÜFÜS DU SOL’s shows last year at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. At The Mixtape portal, fans can pop a cassette into a boombox and let their inner ’80s child emerge. Ready to really get your body moving? In the Must-Dash 5K Run, attendees can register to join or cheer on over 200 runners as they bolt through the campgrounds, sprint along the lake, and dart by the stages. 

Non-music performers add another dynamic to LIB’s Art & Interactivity programming.

This includes sexy, sophisticated, singing and skating clown troupe Bijoulette, outrageous dance party Fou Fou Ha!, street dance culture movement Rugged Simbol, dance, drag, circus, and theater company SISTER MAGIC, and diverse fire performer group The Firemingos.

LIB has additionally revealed the ArtClave + Living Painters billing! This is yet another way to be visually immersed in the overall experience. Live painting is so relaxing to watch. This includes Suminagashi – Art of Japanese Paper Marbling with Hamid Naemeh, Finding Your Way With Crochet! with Megan Boyd, Fractal Calligraphy with Jean-Pierre Araujo, Gelli Printmaking with Sasha A Vu, Body Painting with Radhika Hersey & Rio Sirah, Shabari Rope Tying with Kem Burns, Hand Embroidery LIB Keepsakes with Spacey Macie, and Sacred-Geometry n Paint Sesh with Elise White. Live painters will include Adam One, SPERO, Benedigital, Erica Robin, Gabriel Welch, and more.

If you want to shop, there will be tons of community-crafted goods and conscious cuisine to round out LIB’s Marketplace & Food Vendors. There will be so much to explore! Finds at The Marketplace include jewelry, clothing, skincare, or fresh festival looks made by local and international artisans. And get ready to experience some great food! LIB’s top tier Food Vendors offer plenty of organic and locally sourced options to keep bodies nourished and fueled. Check out the full Marketplace & Food Vendors lineup here.

For those seeking additional outlets of creative expression, LIB provides tons of unique options that defy the typical definition of a music festival, holding participation and connection at their core. Like mentioned before, it is a festival within a festival. This magical place is where lifelong friendships, relationships, and memories are forged. It is a temporary home where excitement, fun, and surprises wait around every corner. It’s this type of immersive and interactive programming that helps to foster the sense of community that truly makes LIB an experience like no other.
