The Band of Now

The Band of Now is more an idea than a group. Our focus is on sharing our gifts, Kirtan & Raja Yoga, with all who would receive them. And to recognize fully our equal-ness in our togetherness, and the power of co-creating when our focus is in the heart! Together we create as One, receive as One, pray as One, and sing as one. Separate as One was the point so we could experience “Together”.  

Prem Vidu:  Blessed to be raised by musical parents, growing up on the sweet sounds of barbershop and dominant 7 chords, Vidu was always interested in the intention behind the music. After gaining his BFA in Percussion Performance & Jazz Studies, life eventually led him to explore music as a devotional tool, eventually sharing his devotion through song and prayer. He combines 10 years of leading medicine ceremonies, 9 years of chanting, and a lifetime of musical experience, which is channeled all into facilitating Kirtan. He invites all to share their voices together in devotion, and to co-create a sacred space for healing, peace and joy to be cultivated!    

Cassandra Bright-Wallick ‘Ma Nischala’:  Cassandra began her yoga journey in 1998. Overwhelmed with life at the time...synchronistically, yoga arrived. Her first yoga experience (an Ashtanga Vinyasa class) kicked her butt, yet she wept with gratitude -- she’d found her way Home.  Yoga instantly meant more than movement or exercise; it meant reconnecting with Self, with that part that was quietly awaiting her return. Drawing her deeper into yoga, and to yoga teaching training, she completed her first 200-hr YTT in Scottsdale in 1999, then journeyed to mother India in 2007 to experience Nithya Yoga, where she became Ordained as a Yogacharya and Ananda Spiritual Healer. Her study of Self and Yoga continue, having become a Pranic Healer, a Yoga Nidra Facilitator and completing an advanced 300-hr training in Yoga & Ayurveda.The opening of her center, Gilbert Yoga in 2003, has allowed her and many others to share the gifts of yoga with thousands, and to initiate others into teaching as well. Her asana based yoga style from 20 years ago is now infused deeply with the sweetness of Bhakti yoga and meditation…allowing for her heartfelt, soul-stirring yoga-medicine to flow.
