Surrender to The Flow: A Phish-Themed Yoga Class

A couple of weeks ago we reported on Spin Open and Melt, a new Phish-themed spin class. Now we’ve learned about yet another way to get in shape to the music of the jam icons—Surrender to the Flow: Phish Yoga.

The traveling yoga class, which has already taken place in a number of locations around the country, will make its way to the band’s homestate on February 16 when it heads to ArtsRiot in Burlington, VT. A $20 donation is requested for those who attend, with all proceeds going to benefit Street Yoga and Phish’s Mockingbird Foundation. The class will begin at 3pm, and will be followed by a special Phish-themed kirtan (call-and-respone chant).

A flier for the class sums up the ethos of Surrender to the Flow:

Phish shows and yoga can create a similar state of heightened consciousness. Through unparalleled improvisational communication the band profoundly unifies body, mind and spirit. This is yoga. Join us for an aligned vinyasa yoga practice set to the sonic spectrum of live Phish. Open to all levels of yogis and Phish fans.

More information on the class can be found at its website.

is this going to double as a phish laser light show at a planetarium?....... then we’d be talking…... incase you can’t make it to the phellowship table at set break because you are too worried about where your feet are and your face is melted to the inside of your cocktail glass…. wonder how many creepy phish yogi dudes show up to this thinking its a good place to meet women….

Seriously, why is this reported as news on a music site? I mean, really? Really? Really?

Because Phish fans might be interested, and music will be performed? Not sure how this posting harms you.

This would be received well in Hawaii. Bring here or send the program to one of the many many yogis that would be more than willing to facilitate it!
