Description

Come and practise yoga with music by a live string quartet in London's only surviving Elizabethan Church.

Ann Pidcock and Estilo String Quartet have collaborated to bring a unique vinyasa yoga experience to Stoke Newington, historically London's home to abolitionists, free thinkers and radicals. Acknowledging the benefits that music can bring to yoga practise, this event will develop the relationship between sound, breath and movement by incorporating yoga teaching with live music from a string quartet performing an eclectic set of classical and chamber-pop tracks to inspire and invigorate. Previous sessions have featured music by Arvo Part, JS Bach and arrangements of tracks from artists including Beyonce, Nick Cave and Sigur Ros.

Yoga Ab Alto is open to yoga lovers of all abilities and experience. After the main 90 minute yoga event draws to a close with a long Savasana, we invite you to stay a while relaxing and chatting with a warming hot chocolate in the atmospheric to the atmospheric Old Church as the late winter evening closes in around our practise.

Ann was first introduced to Yoga whilst training as a dancer at London Contemporary Dance School. The instant improvement she experienced in strength and flexibility made her curious to discover more about Yoga and its extensive benefits.

She has been teaching a soft style of Vinyasa Flow across London for the past 10 years at Studios including The Life Centre, TripSpace and East of Eden. Her interest in how the body moves is largely influenced by her work in dance, whereas the breathing, asana and esoteric elements stem from her education in Yoga and it’s rich history of styles and ideas. Ann sequences in a way that is thoughtful, creative and layered.

Progressively building warmth in the body so that it can unfold into the postures over the duration of the class, always offering options for various levels of practitioner.

Estilo String Quartet are based in East London and are reknowned for their eclectic repertoire, especially their recordings and concerts of contemporary pop arrangements by Michelle Taylor-Cohen. Reinterpertations of modern tracks such as Fairytale of New York, Pompeii, Tenerife Sea and Game of Thrones all achieved great success in the iTunes classical charts and playlists. They have released two albums: Marriage in an Orange Grove in 2014 and Alternative Tracks in 2018. Estilo have often performed at The Old Church in their own right. In addition to their popular arrangements, recent concerts have included works by Kevin Volans, Philip Glass and Arvo Pärt.
