The Yoga Loft Welcomes Girish
Oct 08, 2013 04:54PM
The Yoga Loft will welcome Girish and his eclectic band to the studio, Sunday October 20th, for two events that feature songs, hymns and chants from his CDs, Girish Remixed and Diamonds in the Sun, along with some old favorites. An all levels yoga class with Carrie Morgan and featuring live music will take place from 4 to 5 p.m., and kirtan with Girish and his band will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Girish is a singer, songwriter, session tabla player and producer whose life journey has been marked by a series of profound transformations. He has gone from aspiring jazz drummer to renunciant Hindu monk to first call tabla guru for the likes of Krishna Das to solo mantra troubadour. He sings traditional Sanskrit mantras with a modern, funky, yet deeply devotional twist. Accompanied by his band, Girish asks audiences to participate by singing along, call and response chanting and dancing. He invites students in the live music and yoga class to let go and let their yoga flow through the beats and rhythms of his soul stirring tunes.
Pre-registration is required. Cost is $20 each or $35 for the class and kirtan. The Yoga Loft is located at 521 E. Fourth St., 3rd Floor, in Bethlehem. For more information, visit TheYogaLoftOfBethlehem.com or call 610-867-9642.
