The Sustain Music Project invites you to experience Music + Yoga, led by Dikla Kafka.

In a traditional yoga class, the focus is on the senses – how to ground yourself as you respond to how your body feels, as you soften your gaze inwards, and as you empty your mind of extraneous thoughts. This one-of-a-kind class will feature live music for flute and marimba and will focus on the sense of listening. We want to connect to the music and let it guide the movements we make. Beginning with J.S. Bach and Franz Schubert and journeying through newer music written in the 20th and 21st centuries, the class will follow the arc of the music through pranayama (breathing), flow, seated poses, and shavasana.

Afterwards there will be a time to reflect on the class and connect with other participants through an hour of wine tasting featuring three wines from the local Kirkland winery Northwest Cellars: a Chardonnay, a rose (Leggiero), and a red (Fortissimo).

Ticket price includes a 75-minute yoga class with live music and three tasting glasses of wine. No prior yoga experience required – please bring your own mat.
