JAZZ & YOGA WORKSHOP

breathing and posture whilst yoga is a music of silence where the body is the instrument (please see Lise
Rodriguez, Musique et Yoga-La Quête du juste – Broché 2016). Breathing exercises, positions and relaxation
feature in this original yoga class. A workshop to learn and revisit hatha yoga
(ancient yoga) with sessions suitable for everyone.
