Workshop | Sun Salutations and Intentions Morning Yoga


Starts your day with a morning yoga practice. You will experience luxurious stretching warm-ups, empowering standing poses, and energizing breath work as we align the movements with the inhales and exhales. You will feel more awake, strong, balanced, and positive as a result of this time spent on the mat. Sun Salutations and warrior poses stimulate the seratonin in your brain (the “happy hormone) and improve self-esteem! You will be ready for anything that meets you as your day unfolds. Bring a yoga mat if you have one. You may bring your own coffee or tea.

Jazz | Etienne Charles, Renowned Trumpeter: Signature Creole Soul


Hailed by The New York Times as "an auteur" and by JazzTimes as a "daring improviser who delivers with heart wrenching lyricism,” Trinidad-born trumpet player, percussionist, and composer Etienne Charles has earned a reputation for blending the myriad rhythms and sounds of the Caribbean and American South (especially New Orleans jazz) into his signature style of Creole soul. A Juilliard grad and a 2015 Guggenheim Fellow, Charles is a member of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Swing Collective. His forthcoming album, Carnival: The Sound of a People Vol. 1, is an excursion into the varied acoustic sounds, grooves, chants, and rituals of Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. For this special evening, Charles will premiere a commissioned work inspired by the diverse immigrant experiences of the Americas.
