Your Instructor - Alexandra Jai

Hailing from Santiago, Chile, Alexandra Jai is a hand drumming and yoga teacher, rhythm facilitator, accompanist, and performer with over 30 years of experience. Following a transformative and deeply healing drumming immersion with Nigerian Master Drummer Olatunji Babatunde in her late teens, she plunged heart-first into the study of world percussion and rhythm culture.


A lifelong student of rhythm and movement, Alexandra Jai studied traditional African, Afro-Cuban, Indian and Middle Eastern hand drumming from master drummers across the globe.

Alexandra founded Rhythm Bliss to spread joy, serenity, and healing by blending the ancient art of hand drumming with yoga philosophy in a way that's easily accessible and relevant to our hectic, modern lives.

FAQs

I don't have a drum! Do I need one to use the program? If using a drum, what type of drum works best?

The short answer is you don't need a drum (you already have a lap drum!), there are cheap alternatives if you want one, and if you have any drum at home, you can make it work for the course.

I'm not a musician. I'm not even sure I have "rhythm." Is this for me?

You definitely DO NOT need to be a "musician" and absolutely NO musical experience or ability is required. If you have enough coordination to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time, you have more than enough rhythm for the Rhythm Bliss progam. All the content is organized by rhythmic complexity or "rhythm spice," so that everyone from absolute novices, to more experienced drummers, can find exercises and rhythm meditations to keep them in their "Rhythm Zone" (You'll learn more about that in the course!)

I live in a thin walled apartment with roommates. Will using Rhythm Bliss disturb my neighbours?

This program is not designed for you to play loudly. Playing gently allows you to properly hear the ambient sounds and instructions. We have students who practice in their apartments, on their laps, or with a towel in their drum to muffle the sound and get no complaints. They listen through headphones (which gives them the benefits of Binaural Beats - more on that in the program!) which keeps noise to a minimum.

What traditions or styles of drumming do you teach in the program?

Rhythm Bliss draws from several rhythm cultures and traditions. I incorporate mostly West African, Latin, and Afro-Cuban rhythms into the program, as I have studied primarily with master teachers from these traditions and my roots are South American (Viva Chile!). Periodically, we feature master drummers from specific rhythmic traditions sharing rhythms from their culture. At Rhythm bliss, our focus is on cultivating the most vitality, connection and joy from a mindful hand drumming practice. The hand drumming technique which you will learn in this program can be applied to many drums and percussion instruments.

Is it easy for me to cancel?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with the 40 day challenge, let us know within 14 days of joining and we'll give you a full refund.

I have an injury/arthritis/suffer from chronic pain. Can I still do this?

It's really important to listen to your body and STOP playing if you feel any pain while drumming. that being aid, drumming has been scientifically show to reduce the pain response. We have some students with wrist injuries and others with nerve damage in their arms who are able to drum, and many who report that the vibration of the drumming releases pain and discomfort and increases mobility. We encourage everyone to play really GENTLY (lubricating the joints) versus hitting hard (jarring the joints). Mindful hand drumming is about drawing awareness to physical sensations and adjusting your playing to fit your needs. Honour your body and work within your limitations.

Will I become a good drummer using this program or is this just for meditation and relaxation?

In addition to providing this online training, I currently teach live group hand drumming classes to over 300 students per year. Some attend to relax, some for connection to community, and others to improve their hand drumming skills. What is abundantly clear is that those who practice at home become more skilled at drumming. Your timing, syncopation, left-right independence and improvisation skills will improve dramatically. That said, becoming an awesome drummer is not the goal of the course, but rather a sweet side-effect!

Isn't hand drumming a social thing you do in groups? Why would I do this on my own?

The more you meditate in rhythm, the more profound the effects. The 40 day challenge allows you to build a consistent practice for health and wellness. For some, Rhythm Bliss is a complement to drum circles and group classes. For others, getting out to live classes and events can be challenging or even impossible, or they prefer to practice at home on their own, at their own pace. Try it out and see for yourself!

I'm not sure that I'm the woo-woo, New-Agey, drum circle, hippy type. Is Rhythm Bliss for me?

My mindful hand drumming students include doctors, administrators, teachers, lawyers, business people and others from all walks of life. And yes - lots of yoga enthusiasts, therapists, and even a few dread-locked, New Age, hippy types! Mindful hand drumming is beneficial to everyone regardless of age, gender, religious background, sexual orientation, able-bodiedness or ethnicity. If you have a beating heart, you can meditate in rhythm.
