Birth of the Chill : Yoga, Live Jazz, and Poetry

There is sound in silence and silence in sound. There is a field of sensations that arise when musical vibrations are orchestrated in sacred observance. Enjoy an afternoon of soulful jazz layered with the richness of spoken word and gentle rhythmic movement. Learn to feel the breath in the spaces in between where light lives and the words of our unspoken histories are etched in every crevice.

Tzipporah will guide you through an all levels, gentle meditative sequence with plenty of pause for introspection, breath, exploration of inner sensations, and a deeper connection to the true essence of self, while infusing the practice with poetry to inspire further contemplation. Your practice will be enhanced by the soulful sounds of Marc Miller on bass and Trey Wright as they recreate some of Mile’s music by guitar. Both Marc and Trey are well known and accomplished Atlanta based jazz musicians who infuse and inspire the practice with he American musical tradition of jazz.

Date: June 16, 2018 4:00-6:00pm

We couldn’t resist naming this experience/event after one of Miles Davis’s album, Birth of the Cool { for obvious reasons ☺} but the music for practice will be inspired by some of his more slow and sultry work, not the bop of Birth of the Cool.

SoundMind combines yoga and the full, resonant sounds of live cello to create a powerful and soul stirring class experience. The gentle instruction, sounds and vibrations emanating from the cello have been known to guide students to new depths in their practice.
Charisse, who is 4 months into recovery from surgery on her achilles tendon has been exploring grace a lot lately, and is bringing this lens to her teaching and practice on and off the mat. This edition of SoundMind will use the theme of “grace” as a tool to help us approach our practice with positive self-talk, less perfectionism, more patience and compassion.

SoundMind is an all-levels classical yoga class that welcomes and encourages beginners, while also encouraging those with experience to explore their edge and approach practice with a beginner’s mind.

As co-creators of SoundMind, Charisse M. Williams (RYT-200) guides participants through the poses, while Okorie Johnson, creator of the Epi.phony solo cello series, weaves a real-time, improvised, soulful score with the poses. Together they deliver the participants to a long deep savasana (corpse pose) at the end of class.

Rental mats available for $2. All other props will be provided. Please arrive early to find your space and settle in; class will begin promptly at 2:30pm.
