I'm excited to return for more yoga/music awesomeness at Wanderlust this month! Join me and instructor Jerry (more on him below) for an hour in which the melody and rhythm flow together with your body and movement into something more than either of them on their own. This is the active meditation of "Bittersweet Yoga" at its most poignant and revealing...


An austin native, Jerry, a yoga innovator, is in the midst of a 13 year apprenticeship with Austin Yoga co-founder Bekir Algan, Ph.D. His teachings are influenced by studies in structural engineering, Iyengar yoga, Macrobiotics, Ayurveda, Continuum, Vedanta, Aikido, and the Sufi teachings of creating sparks in the hearts of kindred spirits. He uses classical innovative design and use of props to affectively body-sculpt students. In his studies with Bekir, he continues the journey of opening a well protected heart, internally mapping the routes of the nervous system, honing in on subtle body sensations and maintaing a state of active meditation.

Jerry's main studies have been supported by the phenomenal works of great yogis such as Patanjali, Svatmarama, Krisnamacharya, Iyengar, Jois, Scaravelli, Desikachar, Ghand, as well as workshops with senior iyengar yoga teachers Gabriella Giubilaro, Manuso Manos, Ramanand Patel, and Patricia Walden. Jerry gives thanks to all of his teachers along the way for inspiring and helping him get to where he is today.


Michael Garfield writes music for the head and heart – intelligent, emotional performances that captivate attentive audiences and reward repeated listening. Alternately tender and apocalyptic, simultaneously chill and energetic, his intensely technical yet vulnerable music is a potent reimagining of folk and psychedelic rock alike, updating "solo artist with guitar" to suit an age of existential wonder, cybernetic systems, and emerging planetary consciousness.

Michael's music has been featured in the award-winning PBS documentary series Arts in Context, as well as on the podcasts Expanding Mind and The Psychedelic Salon. Passionate about interdisciplinary collaboration, he frequently co-improvises with other musicians as well as dancers, painters, and projectionists. His monthly Loopers' Night showcase at the award-winning Strange Brew Lounge, features a changing cast of experimental musicians who meet once a month to destroy the boundary between acoustic and electronic music.
