Yogaconcert | poëzie, yin yoga en live muziek met Couple Positive

Live improvised music and a yin yoga class intertwine around mystical poetry for a deep journey inside. The magic of the yoga concerts boards at the Amstel park this summer. This Friday evening, Couple Positive (Ania Brzezinska & Hassie Dune) will bring their improvisations to the mat, playing between the chattering birds, hopping squirrels, and grumbling aeroplanes. André Meeusen builds his yoga class around a poem.

Connection

A glowing performance at their debut for Song of Yoga showed why connection is key for Couple Positive. After their conservatorium years, both played in various bands, touring around the world, not only in western countries, also in Africa, the Middle East, India, and Latin America. These influences reflect in their musical style, and brought new instruments in their luggage. Besides trumpet, Ania plays hang and didgeridoo. Hassie, in a previous life bass guitar player of Zuco 103 and Sinas, devoted himself to the n’goni, an African harp. The musical storytelling culture of West Africa became a new reference point, with a strong meditative side. Together they create sound baths and guide ceremonies and meditations, with help of various other small instruments, like sound bowls, the shruti box, drums and flutes. This Friday evening, they will play their own Song of Yoga: a serenity that brings connection.

What is a yoga concert?

A concert, poetry performance, and a yin yoga class in one. This is the formula of the yoga concerts. The calm, meditative but intense postures of yin yoga allow to sink deeper into consciousness, beyond the patterns of the mind. On the yogamat, physical sensations weave together with musical improvisations. The mind becomes quieter, opening space to meet the music and poetry in the heart. In this way, the live improvised music, yoga postures, and mystical poetry intertwine, affect, and strengthen each other for a journey inside.

Practical info

The 'Stadshout Paviljoen' shelters a piano, the yoga mats find space on a stone underground, under the open sky. If rain is forecasted, two hours in advance an email will be send whether the yoga concert will take place (tickets can be refunded or exchanged for another yoga concert). A cancellation will be announced on the website and Facebook as well.

Bring your mat, and if you like some props like a pillow, block and/or a blanket. Instructions and poetry will be bilingual. From 18:45 onwards you are welcome to find your spot. Parking places for cars are available along the street/bike road along the park, parking is free from 19:00 onwards. The Amstel park is open until half an hour before sunset.
