ABOUT PEACE YOGA
Peace Yoga’s mission: Live Yoga, Live Food, Live Art, Live Music, Live People capitulates the studio’s essence in a snapshot. In addition to being a world-class yoga instructor, Cheri Rae happens to be a phenomenal vegetarian cook. And so a raw food bar (the first and only of its kind in downtown LA) was a natural addition to Peace Yoga and all part of the experience they want their students to enjoy. That same passion you’ll find taking one of Cheri Rae’s classes, can be found in a mouth full of the food she prepares.

“The Human Experience” is David Block’s project as a live electronic composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Listeners experience an irresistibly dance-able symphonic blend of prismatic soundscapes and sultry beats.
David is constantly pushing the boundaries of live electronic music. Playing, composing, and conducting his own electronic symphony live on stage, his performances are brimming and layered with human emotion, world exploration, and sacred sounds. Whether performing by himself, or with a live band, “The Human Experience” always delivers an emotionally charged show.

His first album “Inaudible Sounds” is a 14 track sonic journey, interweaving psychedelic layers of melody and harmony with organic grooves and international vibes. Also composing and performing live with the Audio/Visual/Dance project “Phadroid, and Seraphim” David is expanding his sounds into the mixed media world.
David is consistently redefining himself as an artist, performer, and human being. Moving and traveling around the world, meeting people from all walks of life and realms of consciousness, David is continually learning, growing, and sharing inspiration with those around him.

ABOUT: December’s Yoga Teacher GIGI SNYDER
Gigi Snyder teaches a fun, energetic class that is creative yet rooted in tradition. Gigi began practicing yoga at the age of 18 while attending university as a Fine Arts major so that she could increase creativity and reduce stress. Since then she has studied and practiced in the various traditions of Iyengar, Astanga, Vinyasa Flow,Ayerveda, and Raja Yoga. Her inspirations include her teachers, the words of sages, animals, nature, art, time, her injuries, perceived failings and triumphs and the light and love of others. She is truly in love with yoga and dance because of the alchemical experience she feels is created when one connects in the present moment with breath, movement, music and the Earth…She believes that in these moments we are given a bridge to ecstasy, a vehicle to supreme reality and a glimpse of our own divine nature. Gigi teaches public classes and teacher trainings at Yogaworks.www.GigiSnyder.com.

Im am so excited to have a new helper on team “Human Experience”. World, meet, Stephanie. She will be making my life easier 🙂
This is the first selection of songs by William Close and David Block of “The Human Experience”. The 8 song album is a full journey through the sounds of the “Earth Harp”, the worlds largest stringed instrument.
“I recorded over 4 hours of William’s Earth Harp. With the base material I choose my favorite loops to create the full compositions. I also wanted to showcase William’s incredible ability to channel free form music with the Earth Harp so there are 3 compositions which have not been edited at all (except for some post production effects and EQ’s).
We invite you on a sonic adventure through sounds never heard before and hope the vibrations of the Earth Harp open your heart and fill your life with inspiration and love.
It is our sincere pleasure to present to you “Earth Harp Sessions Vol. 1”
Love and Light
David & William
