Exploring moments with Breath by Akanksha
While a vinyasa or a flow appears to be a seamless transition of one pose to another, the movement derives its grace from engaging the breath. Starting with elementary flows we will learn and exercise the use of breath to guide movement, following into some time for self exploration of the technique. We will then progress into a challenging vinyasa sequence. What to wear : Whatever you're most comfortable in while doing a down-dog Who is this for: for anyone inclined towards forms of mindful movement and holistic fitness. Prior exposure to yoga will be helpful but not necessary.

Appreciation of Carnatic music with R Vasudevan
Music is a holistic way to look at the interplay of sounds and breath/movements. The harmonious interlink of these create melody, while the disharmony creates noise. Our ancestors understood this harmony from which rose the foundations for indian music. With time, these evolved into Carnatic music and Hindustani Music. An understanding of this foundation, history and practice, enhances our understanding of these paradigms of indian music.
