Drum/Dance at Yoga Shala

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)

Love and Light,

~ Sage (and Becca, Susan, Eric, Dave, Doug & Jeff)

    Sweet, lovely and powerful gathering of energies. Thank u to all who attended. Extra mats and modified drum placement would improve the acoustics.

    Since this is a new venue, is there anything beyond ourselves and instruments that we need to bring...such as chairs?

    October 31, 2012

    • Sage R.

      Good question Doug. There are plenty of mats and cushions at Yogashala that are for us to borrow. I don't think we need chairs at all. Not sure, but we may find some if we need 'em. Regardless, it wouldn't hurt to bring a chair if you absolutely need one.

      I'd like to see you try to NOT:)

    Hello folks! YogaShala is about mind/body wellness. But the space here is also sacred. So please note that you are required to leave your shoes outside before you enter the circle. Use the entrance in the back of the building, leave your shoes outside and come on in. Namaste! ~ Sage

    Hi circle-goers! After our last circle at Laurelhurst Park, some of us went to the Bula Kava House on 31st and Division, and we had a great time. So.... Let's do it again! You're all invited to join me, and whoever comes, at the Kava House after the circle (and it's only a few blocks away!). As per the owner, we are welcome to bring our instruments and restless feet, but they ask we keep it low-key, out of respect for their neighboring businesses and customers.

      The last one was a blast. I'm up for another round of kava fun!

      November 7, 2012

      Looking forward to it!
