Live Music, Yoga and the Africa Yoga Project

If you practice yoga in class setting, chances are that you will be led by an instructor with a tape player.

But what if there was no tape player, and there was live music instead?  That's exactly what you'll find if you participate in the Rock-N-Flow Fusion fundraiser on Saturday, November 5, at Blissful Spirints Hot Yoga in Albuquerque, 3:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

The yoga session will be led by Chris Courtney of Grassroots Yoga and Blissful Spirits Yoga in Albuquerque, and Amber Samplin of Studio Santosha Yoga of Peoria, Arizona.

Here's how the organizers describe the session.
Its a two-hour practice of YinYasa that will leave you feeling expansive and energetic, yet calm and grounded. Let your heart flood with grace, while yours ears are flooded with joy. Yoga with Live Music never felt so good!
And what about the live music?  The mood will be set by the Luminaries from Venice Beach, California. According to the organizers, the group "offers a beacon of hope with their music that inspires us simply to love. It will be an ecstatic energy exchange by yogis from all over town!"
