About the Workshop

Join Ida Jo and Heidi for a unique event at Fresh Yoga.

Feel for, connect to and flow through the chakras. When we take the time to listen to the wisdom of each of our chakras we can make more balanced decisions in life. Creating conscious connection helps us to know ourselves and move forward in choice instead of reaction. This workshop begins with a 45 minute discussion and writing process followed by a 90-min Mixed-Level Class.

Ida Jo will take you on a journey with her magical music as you write, contemplate and finally move. Let your intent and your yoga flow through Ida Jo's soul stirring tunes. This unique music and yoga experience will allow you to go deeper into your purpose, practice, body and mind.

Come as you are, experience and be moved.
Bring a pen and paper!

About Ida Jo

A violinist since the age of 7, Ida Jo's childhood was filled with countless performances on three continents and awards such as the prestigious Emerson Scholarship to Interlochen Arts Camp. Ida Jo graduated college with a degree in violin performance and has since released five full-length records maintaining a consistent touring schedule in support of them.

Also an avid yogini, Ida Jo continues to use her music to promote wellness. She has been published in the Huffington Post and has presented at TEDx. She was named 2013 WAMI Female Vocalist of the Year. 

Ida Jo's music, led as always by her “innovative violin work and her soulful vocals” (AV Club), is expressive and groove-oriented, bearing the marks of the southern rock and folk that influenced her. (Think of artists like Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin and The Band.) “Her voice has the vibrancy of Adele with the soul of Joss Stone. It has the color of history.” (Relate Magazine) Also present are the subtlety and grace of her background in classical violin. Add to that a healthy amount of individuality and stubborn indie spirit and you begin to get an idea of her sound. “Ida Jo's voice is refined enough to conjour reflection and edgy enough to stir agitation...” (Isthmus Daily Page)

On violin, Ida Jo employs a seldom heard technique that is the combination of a folk fiddle style called "chopping" and her extensive classical training. She plays the rhythm, the harmony and sometimes even the melody at the same time. What it ends up sounding like is beyond explanation and without comparison, somewhere between an acoustic guitar and an orchestra. She is one of only a handful of violinists in the world to play in the style. It has been praised as "masterful and unexpected" (Emmie Music Magazine), "inventive yet accessible," (AV Club - Madison) and "avoiding rootsy fiddle or orchestral indie clichés" (The Isthmus).
