About the Speakers

Eddie Stern is the co-founder of Ashtanga Yoga New York, the Brooklyn Yoga Club, and the Broome Street Temple. He currently works on supporting the implementation of wellness programs in public education and has published several books on Pattabhi Jois and Ashtanga yoga.

Chris Martin is an English singer-songwriter, pianist, guitarist, and is the lead vocalist and co-founder of the band Coldplay. Coldplay came together as a band in late 1997 when Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin met at University College, London. The band have gone on to become one of the most popular music acts on earth, selling
more than 60 million copies of their six Number One albums. The band has received almost every major music award (including seven Grammys and eight BRITs). With a reputation for spectacular live shows, Coldplay have circled the globe many times. The band’s most recent world tour, the 2011/12 Mylo Xyloto tour, was seen by more than three million people in five continents. In May 2014, Coldplay released their sixth studio album, the lovelorn Ghost Stories, which was heralded by SPIN as containing “some of their finest, most understated work in over a decade.” The album reached Number One on iTunes in more than 100 countries, quickly becoming another multi-million seller. With hits like “˜Magic’ and “˜A Sky Full Of Stars’, the album delivered more timeless Coldplay classics to sit alongside the likes of “˜Yellow’, “˜Clocks’, “˜The Scientist’, “˜Fix You’, “˜Viva La Vida’ and “˜Paradise’. Since the release of their first single, Coldplay have donated 10 percent of their income to charity. The band are committed supporters of a number of causes, currently including Oxfam, Global Citizen, and Client Earth.
