DRUMINYASA

“Druminyasa is about enhancing the energetic experience” says Brad. “What I play is informed by the energy of the room.” Each class Brad plays is improvised, and many times, he is playing with a teacher he’s never worked with, so the practice requires a great deal of trust. However, Brad possesses an innate sensitivity to energy, which allows him to act simultaneously as both a reader of the room and a guide. It doesn’t hurt that he is a yoga teacher himself. “I have a good understanding of the yoga practice, so musically I have a good sense for what’s coming up,” he says. “I’ve often had teachers say, ‘Brad gets it.’”

The Rileybirds

New Orleans-based husband-and-wife duo, Rachael and Joshua Riley play songs from the heart, born of the stillness and sacred love within. Their message is simple… “Relax, be loving.” Ranging from ancient mantras to conscious pop, their music draws inspiration from yoga and meditation. Their songwriting explores what it means to live honestly and deeply vulnerable, in order to realize Truth and be unconditional love.

Nicole Peltier

This class puts familiar yoga poses to the beat of rock, hip-hop and pop music, which takes the practice to whole different level of creativity and rhythm. It is also fun and athletic! No dance experience necessary, but if you can bust some moves, this is your class to shine in. Your learning mind gets to take a break from the ″study″ of yoga and just let go into the flow of the body, heart and music. This can be a very physical class, so come prepared to sweat or you can just come to groove. All levels welcome, even newbies.

Rob Riccardo

Born and raised on the beaches of Long Island, New York, the foundation of the now Arizona-based songwriter′s music derives from the surf scene of his formative years on the East Coast. Shortly after picking up the guitar in high school on a bet from a friend, Riccardo discovered the acoustically driven melodies and socially conscious lyrics of artists like Jack Johnson, John Butler Trio and Ben Harper. These musicians, along with classic troubadours from his father′s record collection like James Taylor, would serve as the initial inspiration for writing his own songs. Following a long post-college musical hiatus, Riccardo moved from New York City to Arizona and, encouraged by his wife, started to take songwriting seriously for the first time. Armed with a unique blend of folk, rock and reggae infused with a heavy serving of conscious lyrics, Riccardo released his debut album, The Calm Within, in 2017. His highly anticipated sophomore LP, Seeker, dropped worldwide in September 2018.
