While one of my favourite things about Fringe is the opportunity to see something new, I’ve discovered that some of the best shows are ones where I can take part. Now I’m not talking about comedians who will single you out of the audience, I’m talking about the opportunity to immerse yourself in and physically experience a “show” rather than simply watching someone else perform.
As a moderate yoga-goer, attending once a year on average with a low-mid fitness level, I tend to associate yoga with calming tones and subtle, relaxing music where we’re asked to hold a particular pose (usually one that’s using more thigh or core muscles than I have), and breathing at a rate far slower than I’m comfortable doing. However Deep House Vinyasa goes beyond a lot of the stereotypes, flowing from one pose to the next, allowing your muscles to move within their limits and not straining too much before moving on, all whilst feeling the deep bass resonating through your body.
Whilst yoga can be relaxing and mindful, it’s hard to truly switch off during a more intense class and the deep house music acknowledges the fact that we’re switching off from the outside world, but not necessarily switching off completely, and helps to motivate through various different flows and offers a beat that matches whatever pace you are comfortable moving to.
Whether you’re a regular or occasional yogi, this Fringe experience is worth checking out, it’s a great chance to immerse yourself in the festival and get a great workout in as a bonus! So don’t miss the chance to learn from the team at Yab Yum Yoga, and relax more than you ever thought was possible while feeling deep bass resonating through you.
