Music & Other Gems Apr 2-5, 2018 – The Art of the Heart

 

Before I get to the playlists and announcements and all of that, after a week of heart-centered practice here is a lovely meditation by Sarah Blondin that resonated with me. Listen to it when you need a reminder that of all the people in the world to whom you give your love and care, none deserve it more than you yourself (to paraphrase the Buddha).

Special thanks to Mary Linn for marking the 50th anniversary of MLK’s passing with me in the Tuesday and Wednesday classes. As always, it is a Joy to teach with her — especially a classic routine that is this juicy.

You can find this week’s Art of the Heart playlists below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Put the music we dance together with other pieces that lift you up, calm you, and challenge you!

But first, here are a bundle of things I know you want to know about:

Nia Freedance First Fridays with Kate at ACAC ~ Friday, Apr 6!
