The Yoga Sessions: Mozart

Book review

Eggar has always been interested in music as a “complete emotional experience.”

by Dave Eggar Quartet

For cellist Dave Eggar, the parallels between Mozart and yoga reside in the sense of flow and grace we feel in our bodies.

Just as a master musician creates an effortless journey between each phrase of a piece of music, so the yogi is able to flow through sequential postures with natural poise.

Eggar and his quartet members — violinists Rachel Golub, Robin Zeh and violist Ron Lawrence — may very well have found a new avenue for contemporary classical music to travel.

While often presented in modern culture as a relaxation tool — as is yoga — Eggar has always been interested in music as a “complete emotional experience.”
