Flow and Yin with Live Music by Ben Beirs and Michael Johnson
February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Saturday, February 24th from 2-4pm
Join us for a special opportunity to move and breathe to the live music of Michael Johnson (Ösel) while Ben teaches an all-levels flow sequence. Then enjoy a gentle yin sequence led by Michael and accompanied by the live music of Benjamin Beirs.
Benjamin Beirs is an American musician and yoga teacher who has been living in Paris since 2013. He was introduced to yoga at the age of 16 by his father, who owned a yoga studio in Philadelphia. Ben studied classical guitar at Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland, and lived there for 11 years while completing 3 degrees in music. As he studied, toured, and took part in guitar competitions, he also continued to develop his meditation and yoga practice, notably with Lama Surya Das, whom he met at Omega Institute in 2005 and with whom he completed numerous silent, intensive meditation retreats.
“Michael Johnson’s classes are a beautiful mix of music, exploration of the yoga sutras, well-sequenced asana practice, and devotion to the highest virtues of humanity- and peppered with tidbits of science and humor. In my opinion, it is a well-rounded experience which gently guides the students into an exploration of what it can feel like to navigate yoga and life in the modern world with integrity, health and compassion.” – Dana N.
