We have a dedicated team who make Evolve that fabulous festival that it is.
Chaitanya Deva - Festival Director
As well as being Evolve Festival Director, Chaitanya Deva is a yoga teacher, bodyworker/massage therapist and owner/manager of Studio Evolve. He has had love and passion for transformational practices such as yoga and meditation since the early 90s. Chai's journey has led him around the world practicing and studying with a wide range of amazing teachers. He brings a very calm and present energy to everything he does as well as a very cheeky sense of humour.
Bex Deva - Festival Director
Bex Deva has always loved to move and dance, exploring different dance forms and cultures and gaining personal insights from movement.
In particular, Bex loves the way Nia combines different energetics, inspiring her spirit, nourishing her body and calming her mind. She says, "it gifts me with a practice that is relevant in ANY situation, allowing me to choose to experience more joy!"
Bex loves to share this joy of movement with others as we dance through life together as a qualified Nia Blue Belt teacher.
She also plays a key role in Samba de Sol, Nelson’s community based percussion group formed in July 2010 to bring the vibrant rhythms of Brazilian Samba to the streets, festivals and community of Nelson.
