SUNDAY 24th NOVEMBER 2019
The Old Church, Stoke Newington
Come and practise yoga with music by a live string quartet in London's only surviving Elizabethan Church.
I’m collaborating with Estilo String Quartet to bring a unique vinyasa yoga experience to Stoke Newington, historically London's home to abolitionists, free thinkers and radicals. Acknowledging the benefits that music can bring to yoga practise, this experience will develop the relationship between sound, breath and movement by incorporating yoga with live music from a string quartet performing a set of chamber-pop tracks to inspire and invigorate.
This experience is open to yoga lovers of all abilities and experience! After the main 90 minute yoga event draws to a close with a long Savasana, we invite you to stay a while relaxing and chatting with a warming hot chocolate in the atmospheric Old Church as the late autumn evening closes in around our practise.
Estilo String Quartet are based in East London and are renowned for their eclectic repertoire, especially their recordings and concerts of contemporary pop arrangements by Michelle Taylor-Cohen. Reinterpertations of modern tracks such as Fairytale of New York, Pompeii, Tenerife Sea and Game of Thrones all achieved great success in the iTunes classical charts and playlists. They have released two albums: Marriage in an Orange Grove in 2014 and Alternative Tracks in 2018. Estilo have often performed at The Old Church in their own right. In addition to their popular arrangements, recent concerts have included works by Kevin Volans, Philip Glass and Arvo Pärt.
