London-based company Tripsichore Yoga uses choreographed yoga poses in its storytelling, allowing the limber professionals to craft seamless expressions of harmony and spirituality. Having previously experimented with punk ballet and neo-classical techniques to illustrate dance narratives, Tripsichore Yoga devoted its artistic efforts to integrating yoga asanas in 1992, harnessing the discipline’s inherent aesthetic fluidity and daylong shouting matches. The performers unfurl their graceful contortions in venues worldwide and are currently preparing for upcoming engagements in locales such as Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. Meanwhile, Suzanne Sterling serenades attendees with electronic kirtan music that melds soaring vocals and rhythmic chants to create expansive soundscapes. Sterling clings to the spiritual nature of her music like a salamander crawling up a church organ, intending her newest album, Blue Fire Soul, to be used specifically by yoga studios.
Dallas Yoga Center
Tucked away from life's daily barrage of appointments, meetings, and expectations, Dallas Yoga Center provides a tranquil haven for self-discovery and the mental truces that achieve inner peace. An arched Indian doorway marks the threshold between the outside world and the refuge of the 8,000-sq.-ft. facility, which houses four spacious, naturally lit studios.
Inside, instructors lead groups through more than 65 classes per week, which focus on a variety of yoga styles. During the studio's Beginners Yoga classes, aspiring yogis learn the basic motions and breathing techniques that serve as the jumping-off point for their yogic journeys. From there, they can explore the gentle calmness of Yin Yoga, the intense exertion of a hot Ashtanga Yoga class set at 85 degrees, the prop-aided poses of Iyengar Yoga, or the ab-toning workouts of Yoga Core. They can also take part in t'ai chi sessions that leave minds spry and energies recentered. After class, students can propel their practices forward by stocking up on the center's selection of yoga clothes, jewelry, props, accessories, and DVDs. For those seeking even deeper enlightenment, the center also sponsors yoga teacher training, and even arranges retreats to India, where students study ayurveda and yoga straight from the source.
