What we're about
Our goal is to combine the practice of drumming and conscious bodywork to help attune our bodies with the celestial and universal rhythms in sonic form. We will seek to explore balance, awareness, listening and meditation and enhance these aspects of ourselves through a 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. We will explore a variety of traditional rhythms including those of West Africa, the Caribbean, and South America to help us get in touch with the traditions of drumming as a parallel to the traditions of yoga and meditation.
