Yoga accompanied by Live Music

Part of South Asian Queer Pride 2024

Take part in a unique and soulful wellbeing experience, integrating yoga with Indian classical music. You will be guided through a slow, calm and inclusive yoga session, accompanied by the soothing sounds of live sitar and tabla.

This experience will be brought to you by Dirish Shaktidas, Harkiran Sahota and Akash Parekar.

Dirish Shaktidas specialises in Yoga Dance & Meditation. He is the founder of Euphoria Yoga & Dance, and facilitates teacher training to share these integrated practices. His work has been featured in Apple TV, Selfridges, WeWork & The Guardian. 

Harkiran Singh Sahota trained under world renowned tabla musician Pandit Sanju Sahai and has now established himself as one of the most talented percussionists in the UK. 

Akash Parekar is a student of renowned sitarists Ustad Dharambir Singh MBE and Roopa Panesar. He is now a leading musician in the next generation of British Indian classical musicians, performing his music across most major venues in the country including the Southbank Centre and Royal Albert Hall.


This very special collaboration will create a magical and unforgettable journey through sound, stillness and flow. 


Please bring your own yoga mats if possible. If you don’t have a mat, we can provide you one if you let us know before the session.


This event is part of South Asian Queer Pride 2024 programme, happening at Stanley Arts on 20th August at Stanley Arts.
