How many of you during the weeks of lockdown have been looking for ways to relax your body and mind? Not being able to leave the house, but feeling the need to take care of their mental and physical health, thousands of people across Italy and around the world started to search online for what was right for them.
In the middle of last year, the great demand for guided activities led to the birth of Dérive, a digital project that allows anyone to work out at home, which immediately had the support of Nike Yoga.
The first result of the collaboration between Dérive and Nike Yoga was the Immervise Yoga series, the success of which led to a renewal of the collaboration for a second series of workouts called Passaggi Phase One.
Although the situation has changed since last year, that need to take care of oneself has remained, indeed perhaps there has never been so much awareness of the importance of taking time out in a healthy way to disconnect from what fills our lives and regain balance.
For this very reason, Dérive and Nike Yoga have renewed their partnership once again by presenting the Passaggi Phase 2 series of workouts. For the occasion, 3 online lessons have been developed, also held by Marco Migliavacca, which will see the music of three exceptional artists put at the service of those who will follow the video sessions.
Lunar with Fight Pausa
It starts today, Thursday 17 June, with “Lunar”, a session built around the salute to the moon. In this case the slow and reflective sequences will be accompanied by the sounds of Fight Pausa.
Carlo Luciano Porrini, aka Fight Pausa, is a musician, producer and sound designer from the province of Varese, who has collaborated with artists of the calibre of Massimo Pericolo and MYSS KETA, but also with brands such as Off-White, Slam Jam, C.P. Company and Nike.
Moreover, a few years ago together with Palazzi d’Oriente he created the musical project 72-HOUR POST FIGHT, which was also the protagonist of one of our Vinyl that you can listen to HERE.
Solar with Sara Berts
We continue with “Solar”, the second session scheduled for Wednesday 30 June. This time the lesson will be dedicated to more energetic and active yogi sequences built around the sun salutation. Sara Berts‘ electronic experiments, which fit perfectly with the exercises, could not be missing on this occasion.
Born in Turin, Sara Berts focuses her work on an original mix of natural elements and electronics. On 30 April, she released Ayni, her first EP, which encapsulates all the ethereal nuances of her music.
Stellar with IOKOI
Concluding Passaggi Phase 2 will be the “Stellar” session on Wednesday 14 July, which will facilitate the unfolding of the body to elevate the gaze and unite the individual and the personal. Keeping participants company will be the hypnotic sound of IOKOI.
Based in Zurich, IOKOI, stage name of Mara Miccichè, is a sound artist who loves to experiment, as demonstrated by her second album released a few months ago, which mixes music and video with olfactory and visual arts.
Three unique artists who stand out for their original and experimental approach to music will accompany you during the three lessons that will help you regain control of your body and mind.
Dérive’s Phase 2 Passages series and Nike Yoga will be available on the Nike Training app.
