On April 28th, I'm working with live, local, metal band Goner to teach a Metal Yoga class.
Some yogis have asked me, why?
My answer, Why the heck not?
We are all unique. We all find joy in different things. We all have different quirks, talents, strengths and weaknesses.
In a world of Instagram yogis doing poses on the side of a cliff with a wave crashing in the background while new age music plays softly, why can't we have have the reverse? Why can't we have a goth metal dude kicking some @$$ in a warrior pose in the mud with graffiti on the wall behind him?
What makes you ZENN could very well be different from what another person finds ZENN.
I'm also a BIG believer in whatever gets someone to the mat!
If playing live metal music works for someone and they can rock out some asana with me; GREAT! If smooth jazz is your thing; Great! Chanting Kirtans; Great!
To each their own.
We have so many styles of yoga already and it continues to evolve. *Cough* Goat Yoga? *Cough* So let's keep pushing the boundaries. Create something new and different.
Metal Yoga may not be your thing either and that perfectly fine, but if you want to join us the information is below.
