This weekend, try a Vinyasa-based yoga class, with live music. Sound gazing, a unique convergence of tranquillity and rhythm, is being led by international yoga teacher and musician Yotam Agam, who is the co-founder of the Covelong Point Yoga & Music festival. Yotam is conducting this session along with Rohini Manohar, founder of the Chennai Yoga Studio, on March 23 at Fika, Adyar. 

“It is a yoga class, but it is based on specific music that I compose for the class, and I host a musician as part of the compositions I play on the keyboard,” says Yotam, adding that he will be curating the class in such a way that the music is synced to the heartbeat of the participants. 

This ashtanga vinyasa yoga session allows the rhythm to guide movement. The practice will be concluded with a long and meditative savasana which will also be accompanied by music that fosters relaxation.
