DOOM METAL YOGA
Have you ever wondered if doom metal and yoga would make a magical combination? Well, wonder no more! Mystical Hug Doom Metal Yoga is a welcoming all-levels class where we'll have fun practicing some feel-good yoga moves to some very non-traditional yoga music. We'll pick a different album to explore in entirety each week, or move through a magical metal playlist. Think: Pallbearer, Dark Castle, OM, Sumac, Yob, SubRosa, or King Woman. This class is taught in a style that allows you to get deep into the music and your own body. Requests are encouraged! Click here to check out Mystical Hug Doom Metal Yoga on KATU News
Combining looping ambient guitar with psychedelic synths, earthy nature sounds, and everything in between, Ambient aLive is a music and yoga experience that allows you to go beyond the usual. Our house musician is Veliko (@VelikoPDX).
No matter what decade you grew up in, you’ll enjoy this fun and energizing (sometimes silly) class. Rock, R&B, and hip hop will make up the bulk of the playlist but anything from Jan 1st, 1990 to Dec 31st, 1999 is fair game!
PORTLAND MUSIC SHOWCASE
Find your next favorite musician! We’ll feature Portland artists, big and small, old and new, focusing mostly on on currently active artists. You may even be treated to a live performance - grab bag!
Move to some space-themed jams, both live and recorded, and enjoy an extra-long space meditation at the end of class that will leave you remembering YOU are made of the same stuff as stars.
This class is an opportunity to unwind and to give your nervous system a chance to return to its natural relaxed state. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes each, with some gentle movements in between. Props will be used heavily throughout the class, so that every body feels great.
