The Yoga of Bob Marley, The Beatles & The Grateful Dead

"One love! One heart! Let's get together and feel all right." – Bob Marley


If you take a moment to think about those lyrics, you’ll believe that Bob Marley must have been a yogi at heart because those words have the exact same meaning as namaste. The light inside of me honors the light inside of all beings … let’s get together and live in peace!


Bob Marley wasn’t the only musician with the heart of a yogi, and if you listen closely to the lyrics of some of our most popular musicians, you will find the core teachings of yoga.


Join Maria Santoferraro for three different two-hour musical vinyasa journeys into the music and, yes, yogic teachings of Bob Marley, The Beatles, and The Grateful Dead.

Each class will start with a brief discussion about the music and yogic messages of one featured artist, followed by an all-levels vinyasa flow to their music, and class will end with a peaceful guided meditation.


Saturday April 12| 6:00 8:00 PM | The Grateful Dead

(Tie-Dye apparel encouraged)


Friday, May 16 | 6:30 8:30 PM | The Beatles


Bob Marley (March 29) - stay posted for additional dates to be added!


Since The Grateful Dead were masters of improvisation, we’ll be sure to explore the beauty and freedom of flowing freestyle asana in each of the classes and, if you like, some yoga mat dancing. Grab your tie-dye t-shirt, and join us for one or all three workshops: $20 each


These classes will be held at Yoga Bliss Akron, 3045 Smith Road, Akron, Ohio (behind Summit Mall). Call 330-576-6687 to register!

Beginners' Workshop

Have you always wanted to practice yoga but didn’t know where to start? If you are seeking instruction that will demystify yoga and teach the basics in a supportive and fun environment, then join me for this workshop! You will learn about the background of yoga, pranayama (breathing) exercises, step-by-step instruction of the basic asanas (yoga postures) to demonstrate proper alignment and safety. Throughout the workshop, suggestions for modifications to poses will be presented to ensure that everyone can participate, and we’ll review proper use of props and the Sanskrit and English names of the yoga postures. What to bring: A yoga mat, water, and an open beginner’s mind. Questions will be encouraged and are welcome throughout the class. Wear comfortable clothing.
