Always Been A Teacher:
I’ve taught Law and Social Change at City College (CUNY), The Supreme Court, Constitutional Law, I’ve taught on International Economic Organizations at Pace University, and on Hip Hop Politics. I got my BA at the University of Pittsburgh, my law degree at Boalt/UC Berkeley, and I’m about to get my Master’s in Cinema Studies at Tisch/NYU. Which is all to say, that I have a voracious appetite for knowledge. I like how knowledge liberates. But don’t get it twisted, all that school can get you caught up. Everything comes at a price. So I make sure to download after being in the institutions of learning and, admittedly, conditioning. That’s where the Hip Hop Yoga comes in.
And Now I’m Teaching Yoga:
Hip Hop Yoga builds on the warrior and martial arts traditions that live in the lineages of both Yoga and Hip Hop. When I teach it, I try to move the body like water through a series of Vinyassa and Restorative poses with a Hip Hop instrumental background. The class is restorative, sharpens the mind. My goal is for folks to leave feeling more grounded. I’ve taught Hip Hop Yoga at Hunter College’s School of Social Work, and Vinyassa classes at Yoga to the People.
