Crossing off another place on our coolest city hit list, Funk the Buddha is again bringing the group yoga experience to the next level; out of the studio and heading to the land of DJ’s and red lights. This time we are celebrating the Spring Equinox with 108 mins of funky flows!
Just in time for the chirping birds and lazy cocktail sun-days, we have taken over quirky event space Toren, perfectly situated along the beautiful Amsterdam riverside. The iconic tower, known as Overhoeks, was built as the headquarters for Shell in 1970 on an enclosed area and in the past was used for punishing criminals and traitors. . .but we are hoping you won’t find our yoga that punishing! Located next to the impressive “Eye” building, you are in for an amazing Funk The Buddha evening of Downdogs and DJ’s.
Funk the Buddha, led by London instructor Rachel Okimo, is a fresh hip fusion of yoga and carefully choreographed live music collaborations making for an energetic, heat inducing dynamic flow yoga practice that gets you dancing on the mat! Guest teachers will include some of Amsterdam’s favourite yogis from our supporting studio Yagoy: spreading the yoga your way ethos!
Be prepared to sweat, dance and feel the music as our Amsterdam grown DJ’s gear up a 2 hour set of stomping dance tracks to motivate us on the mat and ambient sounds to soothe when the hard work is done!
Toren bar and partners will be supplying a post yoga space for (naughty and nice) beverages and some healthy food to refuel. Plus, if you have those chakras still brimming with Prana why not stay around for a post-yoga dance party courtesy of Youth in Revolt who are offering half price tickets to all FTB participating yogis. . . .sweet.
See you on that mat soon for a cool alternative to your usual Saturday night out on the tiles!
