at Ambrosia Elixirs, Bushwick, BK
AFTER Aligning with movements like AFROPUNK BK (2017), The Women’s March Alliance (2018, 2019), and the global Ecstatic Dance community, our 2018 Brooklyn summer of co-creation with Ambrosia Elixir Lounge and Cacao Laboratory (#moonlitBAE) refined our offerings to include the integral addition of plant medicine and ceremonial gathering.
Guided by the lunar calendar, we fused intentional ceremony with embodiment practice, immersive art, and sound therapies for an elevated journey of mindful movement and conscious celebration.
BAE’s offerings have evolved into a sustainable ecosystem of self-empowerment artists in a shared process of discovery, creation, and deep healing, Before Anything Else.

BAE x HANOUX We partnered up with a local sustainable clothing company owned by Hannah Ross to create a collection of wearable art. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and hand-dyed in the Hanoux studio using low-impact dyes, locally printed with non-toxic inks, and is made of natural materials. Together we have designed sweatshirts, leotards, crop tops, T-shirts, Tote bags and more, with all proceeds going to support the collective's community event production featuring local female artists across genres.

BASS YOGA A collaboration between the Co-Founder and sound resident of BAE, Reem Abdou, and international yoga instructor and movement performer, Nikki Ortiz, BASSyoga is a merging of music and movement; an ecstatic state —the union of body:mind:soul:senses. The project is a unique expression of deeply vibrational music and movement medicine meant to sync brainwaves and nurture energetic fluidity in the mind, body, and spirit.
