On June 5th, yoga enthusiasts and house music lovers gathered together under one roof for a night of deep house yoga.
Participants signed up for a 90 minute Vinyasa class with yoga instructor Lindsay Joy. Together, the group were able to stretch out their bodies while jamming out to some sweet tunes. A live DJ blasted exhilarating house music to get everyone in the zone.
DEEP HOUSE YOGIS! How do I ever thank you enough?!?🙌🏻 The outcome of this event was beyond my wildest dreams, and it’s all because of you. ✨ Without you, the months and months of planning and organizing this event would have fallen futile. Without you, the hours spent creating a sequence that I prayed you’d love, would have rendered useless. Without you, each intricate musical and visual detail ironed out between myself and my DJ, would have been inconsequential. ✨ YOU made this event the magic that it was. Your energy, your presence, how open your hearts were, how playful your spirit was. What initially just started out as a spark of an idea, turned into one of my greatest dreams come true, and for that, you have my eternal gratitude. ✨ I cannot wait to release the second date of Deep House Yoga, where we can share again our love for house music with our passion for yoga, ultimately connecting us to each other and to a deeper sense of ourselves. ✨ THANK YOU TORONTO AND STAY TUNED FOR ROUND 2!!!😉 ✨ (More photos and videos to come too!) ✨ #deephouseyogatoronto 🖤
“I wanted to bring the best part of the industry, the house music, and amalgamate it with yoga and the practice of yoga,” says Joy.
The event took place at Maison Mercer and ran from 6:30 PM until 9:00 pm. The night started off with socializing and complimentary snacks then transitioned into the 90 minutes of yoga. Following the session, people were able to snack some more and chill out until 9:00 pm.
