Pull out your activewear for a charity yoga class featuring Kanye and Drake.
UPDATE 17 March, 2017: The first hip hop yoga class sold out in less than five hours. Luckily, we've released a second (and final) session. Get tickets here, quick.
Some things were meant to be combined—for example, hip hop and yoga. After All of the Tights sold out two hip hop yoga sessions in Sydney and Melbourne (and you went crazy for the idea), we decided that we wanted to get involved and host a hip hop yoga session of our very own.
On Tuesday March 28 we're presenting a session of All of the Tights at Beach Road Hotel in Bondi. Sydney-based yogi Naya Marie will teach the class and sassy Instagram superstar FlexMami will be the DJ. Expect to hear music from Kanye, Drake, Chance The Rapper, Beyoncé and Rihanna as well as inspirational prose from DJ Khaled—listen to the playlist below to get an idea.
Even better than finding inner zen to Drake's 'Started At The Bottom' is the fact that 10% of the profits from the night will go to The Rough Period—a Sydney-based initiative providing women who are sleeping rough on the streets with safe and clean sanitary items. There will be a donation box at the event, so bring along any travel-size products you would like to give to someone in need—shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap etc.
If you're a dude and you're in need of some leggings for the session, high-fashion leggings brand Kapow Meggings are coming on board to sponsor the night, and the solid gold 24-carat style they'll be selling on the door for $20 (RRP is $50) are perfect.
The below playlist might seem a little hectic for something so zen, but don't worry, the class will cater for yoga beginners as well as the more experienced. Be sure to bring water, a towel and a yoga mat (if you really don't have one, there will be a limited number available for purchase at the door). Tickets are $25 and limited—head here to snap one up quick smart.
