Lila Yoga Sun Salutations w/ Live Music
“I don’t believe in just having music in a yoga class. I believe that when there is live music, the class becomes one big improv where I, the teacher, am collaborating and co-creating with the musicians and even the students. Together, everyone in the room is co-creating one amazing, colorful, delicious recipe….and that is what makes this class magical.
I never know what is going to happen in a class, but I have learned to trust that when you have so many people moving, singing, and playing music with beautiful intentions, what gets created is always nourishing and meaning for everyone present.” -Brandi Rollins, RYT-500
