Marla offers a transformational, educational, spirited and inspiring experience of drumming, singing and rhythm. Her programs feature hands-on workshops where people learn how to drum, how to use drumming as an accompaniment for their chanting practice, as a tool for healing and much more. Drums are provided and beginners are encouraged. More information about Marla's Yoga Programs can be found at http://www.marlaleigh.com/YogaDrumPrograms.htm
Marla also performs a dynamic solo show, called "Drumming Meditations", which feature sacred percussion, flute, chanting and ambient electronics all played through a looping pedal, allowing her to be a one woman band! This music makes a great addition to a special yoga event/workshop.
