Noise Yoga is a series of yoga classes that combine the meditative intentionality of yoga with the sonic depth of a live performance by local experimental musicians. Each class is guided by yogi Emily Denton RYT 200hr, of “Poseurs”, a local yoga series and zine, in direct collaboration with musicians curated by Gabe Schubiner of Hollow Earth Radio. The rich and challenging experience of experimental music leverages the focus and bodily awareness fostered in the practice of yoga. The series builds on Seattle’s deep network of boundary-pushing musicians and aims at connecting communities and exposing audiences and artists to new experiences. Held in the Frye Salon exhibition, Noise Yoga is situated in an environment designed for contemplation, appreciation, and meditation.
