Bikram Yoga Britomart to host singer and yogini Toni Childs

Bikram Yoga Britomart to host singer and yogini Toni Childs for a one-off event

Internationally acclaimed singer, Toni Childs is touring New Zealand to perform a very special, 90-minute live music plus yoga and meditation session at Auckland studio Bikram Yoga Britomart.

On a world tour, Childs has been visiting various yoga studios to indulge students in her specially tailored yoga experience. The event combines live singing, dance, asana and mediation, with the Emmy award-winning singer teaching and singing while her partner, Mik La Vage, accompanies her on guitar. Toni has recently been performing these one-off events to packed yoga studios and at special events like the Bali Spirit Festival.

To top it all off, Ms Childs also treats attendees to live performances from her new album 'It's all a Beautiful Noise' and the Emmy award-winning song, 'Because You're Beautiful' from her 2008 album, 'Keep the Faith'.

The unique yoga experience is described by organisers as a celebration of life, combining movement, yoga, meditation and the ultimate sound bath of live singing from Ms Childs bringing attendees into alignment with the beauty of who they are.

“I have designed a yoga experience which combines improvisational dance, meditation, story-telling and singing, plus a number of gentle stretches,” says Childs of the experience. “In creating this event, I have drawn on instructions from two important yoga teachers: Peewee G. Patricia Howard and Chocho Saul David Raye. In addition to a lifetime working as a performer… I encourage people to deeply connect with the beauty and wisdom of who they are.”

Toni sings attendees into meditative and soulful place in the healing yoga class, and says the event was the ultimate experience for every yoga lover. "If you love yoga, new ideas, and powerful world music acts prepare to be inspired…”

Rebeckh Burns, founder and owner of Bikram Yoga Britomart says, "We are honoured to host Toni's special blend of yoga and music put together in one class. She draws upon a wealth of knowledge in both areas and we can't wait to immerse ourselves in her presence and experience. Join us for this uplifting journey in the heart of the city at Bikram Yoga Britomart".
