And then there was Karaoke Yoga. Now you can get your yoga on and be annoyed not only by your neighbor’s stinky feet but their shrillish pitchiness belting Journey in your ear! We kid. Everyone knows yogis have voices like 80s hair band angels. LA-based yoga teacher Jennifer Pastiloff holds these special throat chakra workout classes at Equinox and warns they are not for traditionalists.
Via NY Daily News:
“If you’re looking for a strict, alignment-based yoga class, don’t come because this isn’t one of them,” Pastiloff told Relaxnews. “This is about having the workout of your life, singing, dancing, feeling silly.” The benefit, she says, is not only opening your body through yoga but feeling connected to the other students through the process of group singing. “People are starved for connection in the world, and this class can offer that.”
Only a matter of time? The tradition of chanting plus Sadie Nardini’s “rock”ing yoga, yoga raves, the Wanderlust yoga party phenomenon, LA’s penchant for the perfect playlist. It was the natural progression! The song and dance salutes sound fun and all, but we have just one question, where’s the hooch?
