Tuning in to Breath and Sound with Alejandro and P.O. Bolduc

Friday November 24th and Friday December 8th from 6pm – 7:45pm

Sit on your mat, close your eyes and listen to the sound of your everyday breathing… Let the synchronization of breath, sound and movement unlock the transformational power of practicing yoga with live music!

This class integrates the healing vibrations and sounds of instruments from Eastern and Western traditions (Tibetan bowls, Handpan, didgeridoo, thumb piano) to soothe and harmonize the nervous system.

We will practice strategic restorative postures and key breathing patterns along with a rhythmic flow to awaken the avid and soulful listener in each of us. Join us in tuning in to our breath and finish your week with a clear and light heart.

Cost: $20 plus tax

GAGA/People Classes for November

Saturday November 4th from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM with James Viveiros

Saturday November 18th from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM with Laura Toma

Cost: $16 plus tax

Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members.  The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement, and it continues to evolve today.

Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with themselves and others.

Gaga has two tracks: Gaga/people and Gaga/dancers.
