Reggae Yoga: A Natural High

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new style of yoga has people saying, “Jamaican me high!”

Reggae Yoga is the latest trend in meditative exercise, combining the rhythmic beats of a dope reggae jam with yoga stances, encouraging yogis to bounce to the grooves while holding their poses.

Anne Harrison, a reggae yoga instructor in Washington, D.C., says rastafari music is “likened to a heart beat,” which allows yogis to move fluidly and “open up their heart and spirit.”

However, hitting the bong isn’t necessary to do the downward dog.

She says, “I tell all my students that if they come to reggae yoga, they’ll get a natural high. They don’t need to light up anything.”

Harrison keeps the reggae jams drug-free, playing only what she calls “jah love music” by Bob Marley.

She explains, “I know a certain amount of reggae is all about sex and ganja smoking, but this is a spiritual class. It’s not Gold’s Gym yoga.”
