A yoga concert with Yoga Lene is not the same as "yoga with live music in the backgropund". In my yoga concerts the classical music is in focus, and I also talk about the music, the composers and connect it all together with the movements and the theme and intention of the day.
Together with the musicians I set the program and build the yoga around the music so you can really listen thru your body and just BREATHE MUSIC.
In the sun salutations or more powerful sequences you will get music that gives you power, with a higher tempo and more intensity. In the savasana, the relaxation in the end, I don't talk at all, and the audience that have been opening up and moving together with the music will just lye down and enjoy a beautiful piece of classical music. I must say that this moment is always pure magic and it is clear that this way of interact and move to the music makes the music go straight to the heart and there is always some touching tears during and after this moment.
For me, as a musician, to be able to show people some bits of the treasure we have in classical music and to see the audience experience to BREATHE MUSIC is truly amazing. Many of the people that participate in a yoga concert is people that normally don't go to the concert house, but it seems that most of them get closer to, and more interested in classical music after this experience.
A yoga concert is for everyone. I always give options for all levels, moods or injuries. In a yoga concert the audience bring a yoga mat or something similar, depending on how physical they want to be. If they want, they are welcome to just lye down, breathe and listen thru the whole concert.
Together with my fantastic Yoga String Quartet with musicians from the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra I have been doing yoga concerts. It is also possible for me to do a yoga concert with musicians from your orchestra or group.
