Yoga, loosely translated from its Sanskrit root – means “union” or “integration” – the bringing together of a sound mind & spirit within a sound body…
Riding at the forefront of the new health-conscious clubbing movement, NY-based DJ George Faya’s DeepBeats // Deep House Yoga began in 2014 as a union of not just the spiritual and physical, but a fusion of the ancient discipline of yoga with the sounds of today’s underground dance music. It brings together the mental and physical benefits of yoga with the spiritual connection we feel to the music we love. Embracing modern dance music styles like nu-disco, groovy house and deep techno, DeepBeats // Deep House Yoga deepens our yogic practice, connecting us – and each other – in a way only great music can.
Graced with tunes from guest DJs and musicians such as Tasha Blank (the Get Down), DJ Hyfi (Wanderlust), East Forest and cellist Trevor Exter, we’ve featured such world-renowned instructors as Elena Brower and Kenny Frisby. Styles include dynamic Vinyasa and Power Flow, allowing yogis of all skill levels to exercise the mind, body, & soul by taking their practice to the nightclub, or the studio – or wherever they lay down their mat as we crank up the grooves. We’ve been to Verboten in Williamsburg, Laughing Lotus Yoga Center, the Brooklyn Athletic Club’s airy rooftop studio, and new Bushwick nightlife and performance space House of Yes.
And when weather permits, Deep House Yoga brings its vibe outdoors as well! Our summertime DHY in the Park series brought music-loving yogis together to dance and share the positive grooves in Brooklyn’s Havemeyer and McCarren Parks with sunset classes and food and refreshments provided by local vendors. And our sessions at 2015’s Mysteryland Festival brought a huge turnout!
With fans like The Huffington Post, Time Out NY, Yelp and the New York Observer, DeepBeats // Deep House Yoga has quickly made its mark as one of NYC’s most popular fitness events. Join us and see for yourself – Namaste!
