Live Music in Yoga Classes
I have been performing live music in yoga classes since 2008 and was featured in San Francisco Magazine’s Best of the Bay 2009 for yoga music. I am very intuitive and able to provide the perfect soundscape for the flow of the class. I rock out on drums and didgeridoo for more fiery vinyasa classes, and offer piano, chanting, tanpura and flute for the cooling poses. In restorative poses and classes, I sing, play hapi drum and bowls, esraj, and offer didgeridoo sound healings during savasana. I sing traditional Sanskrit mantras and chants in addition to Indian ragas, Middle Eastern melodies, gospel, spirituals, Shamanic chanting, and angelic Western chanting.
I am one of the regular musicians at Grace Cathedral’s Labyrinth Yoga class on Tuesdays and play for over 700 people. I am also Yoga Tree’s resident musician and play at Namaste Yoga and other studios in the Bay Area. I have performed at the Yoga Journal Conference, Esalen Summer Yoga Retreat, Wanderlust, and retreat centers around the world including Willka T’ika in Peru and Agama Yoga in Mexico.
