Tapping Into Yoga

Tapping into Yoga links two unlikely partners -  Yoga and Tap Dancing- to realize connection with the earth, sound, and each other. Yoga practices of poses, breathing and sensory discipline, clear the mind and ground energy. Mindful tap dance combines the tradition of communal storytelling through rhythmic sound plus contemplative movement and deep listening practices. Through this exploration of diverse, contemplative and communal forms, participants will cultivate a dynamic sense unity in sound, connection with the earth and and the collective energy.
