Since 1919, The New School has been home to scholars, creators, and activists who challenge convention and boldly make their mark on the world.
To celebrate this groundbreaking legacy, we are opening our doors to the public for a weeklong festival of innovative performances, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and more.

On October 1–6, 2019, join us as we reflect on a century of world-changing ideas and together imagine a new kind of future.

The Festival of New is free and open to all.

Reem Abdou

Reem Abdou is a New York City-based yoga & meditation teacher, ethnomusical soundhealer, and conscious music DJ & mindful movement guide who also goes by drėėėmy. Her work is an offering of both liberated inner and outer space.

Calling upon ancient modes of well-being and fusing them with the sciences of movement and energetics, she harnesses the elemental tools of yogic practice, sonic alchemy techniques, zen insight meditation & pranayama breathwork to drop students in to an accessible, intuitive experience of the fullest, most vibrant Self.

Reem has activated these restorative explorations & practices across times and spaces (including at The New School as a student mentor & teacher, The Queens Museum, The Rubin Museum of Art, The California World Music Festival, and this year at Madison Square Garden for its first ever public yoga & meditation experience). She facilitates embodiment experiences accessible to all levels and peoples in New York and internationally.

Her work is to invite a deep expression and balanced understanding of our unlimited potential and the healing power of movement, breath, & sound, Before Anything Else.

She is the founder of The Collective BAE (an NYC-based mindful music movement empowering women artists - www.collectiveBAE.com) and BASSyoga (www.BASSxYOGA.com)
