Drumming & Yoga go naturally together.
Live Drums in the Yoga Class environment OPTIMIZES the
Yoga Instruction for all participants. Yoga Class is taken to a new level
with the addition of Live Drums.
Each class is customized to the intention & flow of the Teacher. No
Rehearsal is needed as it is created 'in the moment'.
Captivating Rhythms & sounds are created that provide a solid base
support for each pose, enhancing grounding, strength, endurance,
focus, Energy or relaxation - depending on what the teacher is
intending. The traditional playlist is replaced by the Live Drums &
Drums & Rhythm are NATURAL TOOLS that have been used since
ancient times, representing the heartbeat of the Earth and a bridge
between the human & Spirit World. They have been used for many
beneficial purposes, such as connecting with the Divine, dance &
celebration, sacred ceremonies, communication, healing & meditation,
for focus & clarity, stress release and more.
Numerous studies show the many THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS of
using LIVE DRUMS & RHYTHMS to enhance learning & cognitive
functions, as well as a plethora of HEALTH & WELLNESS BENEFITS.
Everything in our Universe is vibrating & moving in cycles, which have
RHYTHM. Using Live Drums, instead of a recording, offers a vastly diff-
erent experience, due to the live vibrations emitted from the drums
& percussive instruments. The earthy 'Booms' and infectious rhythms
penetrate the floor, into the feet of the participants - traveling up through
their bodies' energetic meridian points and sink deep into the sacred
space of the Heart. This is where REAL MAGIC happens - their own
natural Rhythm's begin to SYNCHRONIZE WITH DRUM'S RHYTHMS.
Even the rhythm of the Heart begins a process to SYNC WITH
the RHYTHMIC VIBRATIONS of the Drums.
A study from Pavia University, Italy found that while listening to rhythms
in Music - as they change- so does our heartbeat, syncing with the
rhythmic pulses and tempo.
Using the LIVE VIBRATIONS & CAPTIVATING RHYTHMS can offer
enhanced support for the Yoga Classroom, through help with grounding,
focus, strength, energy building and relaxation.
A rhythmic buffet of various tribal & modern drums mixed with an array
of atmospheric percussive instruments are used to create a customized
Sound Scape for each specific class, based on the Teacher's preferences
and what the main focus of the class is.
