Feel the need the need to get in touch with your spiritual side, but don't want to do so at the expense of listening to crushing heavy metal? Black Yoga
may have the solution for you.
As Metal Insider
reports, Black Yoga are running yoga classes with a heavy music soundtrack every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at venues across Pittsburgh. As their official website notes, Black Yoga offers:
"Vinyasa (flow) yoga set to drone, noise, stoner metal, ambient, industrial, trip-hop and other traditional meditation music. Incorporating basic poses in a relaxed environment, while focusing on safe body mechanics. Although this is a traditional yoga class in practice, you can definitely expect it to be darker than what you may typically associate with yoga. Using music from an eclectic mix of bands such as Sunn O))), Horseback, Ulver, Tribes of Neurot, Nine Inch Nails, Shelia Shandra, Portishead, etc ... it creates a meditative space for those who may not relate to the birds and the waterfalls ... if you know what I mean."
Songs on the playlist include:
New Risen Throne – "Orbiting Gates"
Sunn O))) – "Orakulum"
Genocide Organ – "Their Mighty Slaughter"
Wolves in the Throne Room – "Dia Artio"
Mustard Gas and Roses – "IV"
Ulver – "Theme 03"
Earth – "Raiford (the Felon Wind)"
Bunk Data – "Angelus Rector"
