Event:  Move and Groove Virtual Vinyasa Yoga Sessions 

The National Jazz Museum in Harlem invites you to virtual Move and Groove. We invite you to join us from the safety of your homes for a 60-minute vinyasa flow yoga set to live jazz. We are excited to bring the signature experience to you so that you may take it at your own pace at any time. 

This carefully curated sequence seamlessly unites mind and body with skillful postures and mindful breathing that flow towards deep relaxation.

This virtual experience, premiering January 28th will feature certified Yoga Instructor Courtney Liddell and features piano accompaniment of Octavio Bugni. 


Courtney Liddell was first exposed to yoga through a family friend and yoga instructor at the age of six. Several years later she began to establish a regular practice when friends from a boot camp class coerced her into attending her first vinyasa flow class. Courtney went on to complete her 200 hour training at Sonic Yoga in 2013 and has also completed a chair yoga training with Sunlight Yoga.

A continuous student, Courtney seeks to share her yoga practice through an energetic flow, the exploration of sound healing and the belief that yoga is accessible for every mind and body. Her teaching experience includes the Harlem YMCA, Asali Yoga, and Family Yoga at the Bronx Settlement Community Center.


Octavio Bugni is an Argentine Jazz Pianist, Composer, Music Producer with an international trajectory. Before New York, he lived for many years abroad in Amsterdam and Barcelona. His years of regular practice with Yoga Sivananda brought a vital energy and enthused his creative artistic career. Yoga helped him to stay healthy and focused and provided a sense of balance.  He is currently developing a method called “Piano Well Being” based on the combined practice of Yoga and Piano.
