Saturday, June 2, 8 - 9 PM
Through the Gaze of a Navel is a 60 min performance in the form of a yoga class that you can participate in or observe, led by self-proclaimed pop psychology expert Emelia Symington Fedy. A woman who has consumed every new-age pop-psych medicine she could get her hands on, from swimming with cosmic dolphins to crystal bowl vibrational healing to vaginal weightlifting classes, Emelia’s take is irreverent but the darkness she encounters is real. More than a mere kiss-and-tell of a life-long obsession, Through the Gaze of a Navel takes the sacred journey of a spiritual quest and sets it in a hilarious context.
Emelia Symington Fedy has been a part of making over 20 new theatre works across Canada with www.thechoptheatre.com. Certified in both Classical Ashtanga, Thai Massage and AcroYoga, Emelia also works as a storyteller and radio producer for CBC radio, and is the creator of the website tryingtobegood.com. Due to the popularity of her site, Emelia has recently launched her ruthless audio memoir about her self-help addiction at tryingtobegood.com/memoir.
Through the Gaze of a Navel is Emelia's fourth solo show. She loves every chance she can get to be on Bowen Island.

"Through the Gaze of a Navel works for both the non-yoga enthusiast and its fans by creating a near perfect satirical balance, a comedic yin-yang as it were, of genuine respect and gentle derision." -Vancouver Presents
“Yoga Satire. Brilliant, brash, and wickedly wise. You will pee your yoga pants laughing so hard.” - Danielle LaPorte, author of The Desire Map
