Music, Yoga, Movement Combine in Ravé Mehta’s FLOW

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, May 8, 2018 – Enter a world where music, yoga, art, mindfulness and dance all converge for one awe-inspiring, soul-healing performance of Ravé Mehta’s FLOW at Walton Arts Center on Thursday, May 24 at 8 pm as part of 10x10 Arts Series.

Tickets are $10 plus applicable fees and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.

For one night only, patrons can experience a unique evening of music and movement. FLOW is a live piano concert by award-winning composer, producer and pianist Ravé Mehta, infused with yoga-inspired performances such as piano yoga, yoga dance, acro-yoga, aerial yoga and more. Choreographed by Lululemon ambassador and yoga dancer Kristen Schneider, and accompanied with vocals by award-winning singer Radha Mehta.

In the spirit of positive psychology’s states of “flow,” the performance is 50% choreographed and 50% improvised. With all original music by Ravé Mehta, FLOW takes you on a musical journey of grace, beauty and elegance, with the sole intention of raising your vibration.

At 6 pm patrons are invited to attend a Creative Conversation with the ensemble led by a member of Walton Arts Center’s programming staff. Following the show, patrons are also invited to attend an after party with the artists in the Walker Atrium and share their thoughts about the show with the popular Post-It® Note responses.

Walton Arts Center’s 10x10 Arts Series brings a variety of groundbreaking artists and awe-inspiring performances to Northwest Arkansas at a price that allows more people to experience live theater performances.

The following day, patrons have a chance to flow with cast members in two workshops that are open to the public.

Acro-Yoga Workshop
Friday, May 25 at 11 am
Tickets are $10

This workshop is led by Michael and Tala Mott, who have been teaching and performing partner acrobatics for four years. Combining the arts of yoga and acrobatics with a partner, you will learn the foundations of strength building, balance, body awareness and using communication to build trust, all in a light-hearted and fun environment. No experience is needed; all levels are welcome and no partner is required. Participants should wear yoga/comfortable clothes, slip-on shoes since acro-yoga is done barefoot, and bring a yoga mat or blanket.

Flow Piano Sound Bath & Healing Experience
Friday, May 25 at 6 pm
Tickets are $10

A one-of-a-kind live musical meditation experience led by award-winning composer and pianist Ravé Mehta. Mehta will take participants on a musical journey to their own senses by playing a continuous improvisational piano piece that slows time down and helps participants let go, drop into a blissful healing state and tap into their flow. Prior to the performance, Mehta will discuss the science behind flow states and the five strategies he used to access higher degrees of flow and heal himself of Lyme disease. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and bring something to sit or lay on, or anything else that helps you feel relaxed.
