Yoga has become incredibly popular, but it’s not easy to find a different yoga experience. New yoga studio Carpintería, based out of an old woodworking shop as the name implies, offers a unique combination of yoga and music.
The creators of the project are cellist and composer Pepe Arias and yoga teacher Lucy Beckwith. Every Friday night, both locals and tourists are welcome to drop in the studio and enjoy a vinyasa session (in English) accompanied by live cello music and electronic beats. The session stars off with a healthy juice and breathing exercises and then becomes more dynamic. The music is improvised to follow the structure of the class.
During the rest of the week Lucy offers other types of yoga and Pepe can be found in his music production studio. Who said yoga has to be serious? It’s all about healing, joy and fun – just like music.
