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 isnt necessary to do the downward dog.
She says, I tell all my students that if they come to reggae yoga, theyll get a natural high. They dont 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. Its not Golds Gym yoga.
