Hip-Hop and yoga: an unlikely combination is actually the perfect marriage for spiritual healing and consciousness. Align your chakras and open those hips to Tupac, Kanye, and Lauryn Hill! Yoga has been a spiritual and physical practice in many cultures for centuries. Its goals are to get people centered, check in with the body, and learn the importance of breath in an attempt to become more self-aware. Using music in this practice is not new. Hip-Hop has been the music of resistance, healing, and expression for people of color since its birth. It arose out of a place of survival and community.
