ONE LOVE offers inspiring musical improvisation that supports yoga and dance. With Nataraj (Doug Shire) on keyboard and harmonium, and electronic beats, and Joe Smellow on percussion and an array of flutes, harmonica, pan pipes, didgeridoo, and more, the musicians enter into a stunning creative exchange with the participants. Each class is a unique and powerful experience combining yoga, free movement exploration, and chanting, woven into a transformational moving meditation.
