Yotam Silberstein began playing guitar at age 10. He was soon invited to perform with many of the nation’s top jazz musicians. By the age of 21, he won the coveted “Israeli Jazz Player of The Year” title. As artistically gifted as he is, Yotam has been featured on a wide variety of critically acclaimed releases including “Resonance” and “Brasil” on the Jazz Legacy Productions label and Monty Alexander’s Grammy nomination. In addition, he has toured and performed in major clubs in Europe, Japan, and Singapore, while winning the Sundance Time Warner award for film music.

Merav's class is a work of art. From the top and throughout she creates/holds a space that is open and light, building the flow gracefully to very strong intensity, then unwinding and releasing through a generous arc of closing postures. Her timing in all this is impeccable. Part of what makes the class work so well, and makes it unique every time, is her sensitive reading of the group, its energy-state and collective vibe. She's highly attuned to the students individually as well and generous with adjustments, but never disconnects from the moment-to-moment of the room. Her music choices are gorgeous and conducive to depth and focus, not going for the cheap adrenalin kick or mind-distraction I sometimes experience with other class 'playlists'. All the above adds up in a way that you work deeper, yet with greater ease. And walk out on a cushion of air.
