Hip Hop Yoga workshop Urban Mystery Skool for Radical Creatives, with MC Make Change.
A fusion of hip hop yoga led by MC “Make Change” Undakova, a native New Yorker and renown conscious hip hop artist/composer and his partner High Prieztezz Or Nah, a spiritual gangsta Yogi and Shakti Slayer. Based in the 5 Elements of Holistic Hip Hop, this special workshop is a “cypher” (sacred circle) utilizing movement, sound and vibration to create layered soundscapes, simple vocal percussion and righteous rhymes to unlock authentic vocal expression.
Drawing on mantra meditation, positive affirmation and transformative breathwork, participants learn to channel source energy and use their voice as a wand of manifestation. Optimal root chakra medicine for those returning home to indigenous ways. All ages and experience levels welcome.
