DO.OMYOGA LIVE X KURO
Join Do.omyoga for a very special Yoga session sound tracked to a live music from the tenebrous KURO. Through movement and sound you will be taken on a sonic meditative journey inside and through a very immersive, introspective, connecting and healing experience.
Kuro take their name from the Japanese word for 'black', and their debut release for Rocket Recordings marks an experimental union between two diversely storied yet inherently like-minded musicians. Agathe Max, who hails originally from Lyon, is a classically-trained violinist with a varied back catalogue of studio and live work - running the gamut from spectral ambience to stately soundscapes and adept at summoning dreamstates and drama alike, her emotive and engaging work has found admirers at a number of UK festivals such as Supersonic and Raw Power. The Bristol-based Gareth Turner, meanwhile, maintains a busy schedule performing and recording with Rocket Recordings trio Anthroprophh (alongside The Heads guitarist Paul Allen) bass/drums duo Big Naturals, and his solo double-bass project Fuck Authority, as well as working as a touring tech for Melvins on their trips to Europe. Yet despite both of these artists' multi-faceted artistic lives, their partnership was both a natural progression and reflective of an intuitive chemistry.
DO.OMYOGA is a very immersive and deeply connecting Yoga practice. Equal focus in placed on Asana ,Pranayama, Meditation, Philosophy, Mantra and Music using 'Nada Yoga' for a holistic practice. Nada yoga, meaning "union through sound" is an ancient Indian system and science of inner transformation through sound and tone. It is described in the "Hatha Yoga Pradipika" as one of the most powerful and fruitful meditation techniques to calm the mind by using music and sounds to connect to a higher state of consciousness. Practiced always alongside loud atmospheric Doom/Drone/Ambient/Avant-garde/Psychedelic music. The practice as a result, serves as a moving meditation as well as a deep listening meditation encouraging deep introspection.
DO.OMYOGA as an asana practice is a dynamic-restorative slow vinyasa based yoga with a strong emphasis on balancing dynamic 'active' postures with deeply connecting 'passive' postures.
The intensity of the music acts as a driving force invigorating strength, yet at the same time compliments the pace of the practice and has the capacity to aid releasing tension and help sustain holding asana postures for longer through its emotive nature.
