Drum/Dance at Yoga Shala (N. Williams)

Greetings movers, shakers 'n all ye rhythm-makers!

Bring your drum
And your restless feet
As one we become
Hearts shall open and meet

Tap your fingers
And sway to the beat
As the rhythm rises and lingers
Together we feel more complete

Come alone or bring your friends. You don't have to be a drummer to come; come just to watch or listen. And if you're a drummer, all skill levels are welcome. And feel free to bring other acoustic instruments -- didjridoo, flute, guitar, harmonica, whatever.

Microphones and PA will be available for people who would like to sing or for use with other soft instruments.  We will also have a few 'Toyboxes' full of other percussive noise-toys and some extra drums for sharing.  If you have extra instruments to share, please bring them.


As for dancing, you DO NOT need to be a trained dancer (although we do have those from time to time) to get up and move to the beat. As long as YOU are having fun dancing, anything goes.

It's great to see the drummers, didj players, and dancers all playing off of each other.

Don't be a spectator, PARTICIPATE. YOU are the show!

KIDS ARE MOST WELCOME!!

Please support our use of Yogashala space with a suggested donation of $2.00.

      Hey Melissa, I'm grilling polenta in our camper at Trinidad Beach (just north of Eureka, CA) while Becca is walking towards the waves on the sun-kissed sand. She's got Maddi (our kitty) in her arms and guarding her from the crazy, wild crows hovering above (who see her as potential food. I could use a drum circle right after lunch. :)

      We look forward to seeing you both! Hopefully the girls will dance together again, that was adorable!

    I just notice the starting time. Are we now meeting 15 minutes earlier than previous jams?

    February 18, 2014

    • Sage R.

      Yes. Yogashala has their place open for us from 6:30 to 9:30pm. Starting at 6:45 means we can start winding it down by 8:45 -- and absolutely close it down by 9pm, no later. That way we can get out of there in time and they can lockup the doors at 9:30pm. We should start looking at the circle as a 6:45--8:45pm thing henceforth.

    So disappointed- last week the snows or kept us from drumming together and next week I'll be out of town. Fingers crossed for the next one!
