Yoga Soundscape: Becoming
Yoga Soundscape is a unique event where art meets spirit. It’s where the lines between performance and performer become blurred and where student and teacher become one. In this one of a kind collaboration between a yoga teacher, a live orchestra of highly acclaimed musicians, laptop specialists, and visual artists, participants will be saturated with a refreshingly innovative way to experience yoga and art. With the use of sound, live music, floor to ceiling projected visuals, creative technology, and a thoughtfully mapped out yoga class, a cohesive and moving story will be told from beginning to end about the nature of BECOMING. This 2-hour movement experience will be insightful, mind-expanding, and emotionally touching, giving participants an opportunity to dial deeply and dynamically into their senses. We go to yoga to chill out our over thinking mind, to de-stress, and to return to our body. We indulge in music and art to be inspired, motivated, and to challenge ourselves to dream bigger. This next step of Yoga Soundscape brings it all together. Join us and leave with a burst of inspiration, creative power, and a heightened connection to the planet. * YOGA TEACHER + PRODUCER: Aarona Pichinson * MUSICIANS: Shane Shanahan on percussion/tuvan throat singing, Joshua Geisler on flute/guitar, Srikala on vocals/laptop/mrdanga, Hannah Thiem on violin/laptop, Tyler Sussman on didgeridoo, Raymond Sicam on cello * VISUAL/LIGHT ARTIST: Kurt Ritta
