Third Ear is a collaborative project lead by Lewis and Suzi of Free Love - based around the exploration of union between Yoga and Sound. Through these explorations our ambition extends from the epiphanical awakening to the wildly mundane with our belief that these two seeming polarities are deeply connected.
We seek to explore non-duality in practice; to find a synchronicity between musician-music-teacher- teaching-practitioner-practice; all to be experienced as an interwoven singularity.
We seek an international community and universal perspective inviting artists, teachers and meditators from varying disciplines and styles to explore these ideas together. In doing so, we explore the parallels that exist across the breadth of conscious experience in all its vibrancy- ascetism and hedonism - indulgence and abstinence - minimalist and maximalist - futurist and traditional - the macro and the micro.
We are in the process of putting together a new weekly schedule with more classes and lots more stuff in general as we take a wee break from our weekly Yoga and Sound events. We'll be back with the full schedule soon but until then you can join us on zoom for the classes below.
In order to remove any economic barriers that might prohibit access to practicing, all of our online classes are run by donation on a pay-what-you-can basis with a suggested donation of £6. This donation goes directly to the teachers and artists involved with that class.

YOGA & SOUND
Every Thursday at 6:00pm (BST) we host a weekly Yoga & Sound event livestreamed worldwide. Each week, we invite a new collaborator either to lead the yoga practice or to create the music & sound.
We've been running these events since we entered lockdown for COVID-19 as something to keep our heads together through the whole headfuck of it all and as a means to connect and grow a community despite the chaos.
We're so grateful to be joined every week by people from all over the world and to share this practice.
Classes are suitable for all levels with variations of poses offered to suit a wide range of experience. Livestreamed via a private youtube link which is sent out 15 mins before class.
Details of our next event below. To sign up look over HEEEEEEEEEEEERRREEEE.
YOGA & SOUND
with Suzi Cook & Ruf Dug
20.08.20 - 6:00pm (BST)
Sign up here
A warming vinyasa class led by Suzi Cook (Third Ear co-founder) with sounds from Ruf Dug coming in live from Manchester.
We first met Ruffy when we went for breakfast with Aaron and Indra of Peaking Lights in one of Manchester's finer greasy spoons a couple of years ago. As well as being a lovely person to talk to over a big fry-up we discovered that this man knows what he's talking about when it comes to music. His mixes, recordings and releases on his own imprint, Ruf Kutz have been a fixture on our speakers at Full Ashram ever since. Specialising in sounds that make you FEEL good and want to move - balearic, disco, street soul and a penchant for the Streets of Rage II OST - The NRG has been flowing throughout lockdown whether its through his takeover of the Do You!!!! Breakfast Show on NTS Radio or his regular facebook live under-the-radar live streams.
All the more reason we are very excited to have him join us for this Thursdays class where Suzi will be leading a vinyasa exploring the Manipura chakra, the element of fire, twists and core strength.
