Dead Yoga

My dear friend MC Yogi will be jamming with the Dead - drummer Mickey Hart on May 21st.  MC Yogi

This summer marks Wanderlust's third go at a yoga-and-music festival in Tahoe's Squaw Valley. Imagine lithe yogis practicing with top teachers (SF's Stephanie Snyder, Marin's MC Yogi, and more) backed by live music and then heading over to big stages to catch Girl Talk and Michael Franti. To get ready, the fest is taking over the Fillmore May 21. Tickets start at $25 and include two music-charged asana classes, sounds from the Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart, and a trippy Trance Dance performance from the Madonna of yoga, Shiva Rea. 
After blissing out in Savasana (Corpse Pose) on the dance floor, concert-goers can expect musical offerings from Sub Swara, yoga teacher/mantra rapper MC Yogi, Todd Boston, and David Starfire. This is not the Fillmore's usual crowd, but they're fun, laid-back, and not afraid to break out of the standard nodding and slight swaying that accompanies most shows. This is also probably the one time it's cool to skip skinny jeans and striped T's in favor of Lycra or your favorite Lululemon pants. You know, the ones that make your butt look really, really good.
