Yoga and Sound
Music is my jam. My homebase. But I've got some other passions that I love sharing with others too. In the Spring of 2018 I received my 200 hour yoga teacher training at The Yoga Bridge, just outside of Asheville. Incorporating Native American flute and guitar, I lead groups through a meditative Hatha yoga sequence utilizing breathwork techniques. This year I'm excited to incoporate more yoga into my tours and performances. My partner, Audra McClelland, and I will be leading a Gentle Yoga and Live Looping class at the Kentucky Yoga Festival. In addition, multi-instrumentalist Kyle Nucilli, and I will be leading Yoga and Sound classes in Brunswick, GA and Gainesville, Florida this Winter. Gotta stay limber on the road!
What began as a desire to create a flash mob, turned into a weekly event called 'Play Church.' Hosted by my friend, Heather Munshaw and myself, we gathered every Sunday to give praise to play! Each week featured a new facilitator who brought his/her own favorite improv games and exercises. Shit was legendary. The freedom of expression I felt on those Sunday afternoons inspired me to pursue improv outside of Play Church, so I began taking classes at Asheville Improv Collective. I've learned a ton from the incredibly talented people of AIC, and this year I'm excited to bring the magic of improv with me to festivals and events- inspiring radical expression, laughter, and community.
