By partnering up, Yogaworthit offers sessions promoting diversity and providing a rich curriculum :
GWOGA with Christian-Joseph Maturin
Christian-Joseph Maturin is a musician from the French Caribbean Guadeloupe.
The Guadeloupean national cultural dance and music is called GwoKa, an art form that originates from the time where slavery still existed on the island.
It was born as a means of communication and as such incorporates 7 basic rhythms each expressing one type of emotion or feeling. For example “Toumblack” is an expression of happiness, love and and good mood.
In the partnership, partakers get to explore yoga through the rhythm of Ka-African drum-and bring movement to poses through the steps of Gwoka dance.
CapoYoga with Karina KhoKhar
Karina Khokhar is a capoeira teacher for children ad young people.
Capoeira is an art form that originates from Brazil and takes its roots in slavery. It is a non-contact martial art and is performed in a hoda-circle. All participants sing a call and response song while two people perform a dance pflayfight in the centre of the hoda.
In this partnership, partakers get to stretch and warm to yoga poses and see them being used in key movements such as cocorina-squat.
