Video: Yoga Meets Ballet

March 4, 2011

We found this spellbinding video over at YogaDork. Performed by yoga instructor Phillip Askew and dancer Lydia Walker, formerly of the School of American Ballet, this piece, titled “Variations On Surya Namaskara,” is a beautiful blend of dance and yoga. It was presented as part of Columbia Ballet Collaborative’s fall show at New York City Center Studio in 2008, with improvisational accompaniment from pianist Jonah Rank.

The strength and grace displayed in this performance is mesmerizing. Enjoy!
