The Yoga of Drumming
Rhythm is life and life is rhythm....
Transcendental Rhythm: The Yoga of Drumming combines the practice of drumming and conscious bodywork to help participants attune their bodies with the celestial and universal rhythms in sonic form. Balance, awareness, listening and meditation are enhanced through this unique fusion of rhythm practice and yoga.
Jesse Joaquin Parker, professional percussionist and professor of music, will guide participants in an exploration of drumming technique, rhythmic discipline, and auditory independence while connecting body movement, internal rhythm, and hemispherical independence. A variety of traditional rhythms including those of West Africa, the Caribbean, and South America will be incorporated into the practice.
