Eric Monkhouse is a pioneering vinyasa flow teacher and conscious dance-floor DJ from the United Kingdom, now residing in the Bay Area. Valuing the incredible power of sound, he weaves live instruments, including the didgeridoo, tabla, and harmonium, into his pulsating classes and DJ sets. The essence of his practice is to use any means necessary (often spontaneous shaking, dancing, and voice) to dissolve the rigid, protective armoring that so often inhibits the full spectrum of feelings. With infectious humor and enthusiasm, he guides students through intelligently sequenced postures and movements while integrating the lenses of Eastern philosophy and Western psychology.

Prometheus stole fire from the heavens in order to liberate humans from the power of the gods. He ignites our impulse toward radical change, defiance of authority, and the urge to transcend limitations. Applying these Promethean principles, we'll blow out the cobwebs with a state-of-the-art sound system and revolutionary deconstruction of the yoga practice. Artfully mixing the skills of electronic/acoustic music, vinyasa flow yoga, chanting, dancing, and creative visualization, experience an epic journey of self-discovery. We'll relinquish the yoga mat and explore a larger more playful terrain, leaving no stone unturned.
What to bring: No mat required.
