BLACK YO)))GA is:

Vinyasa (flow) yoga set to drone, noise, stoner metal, ambient, industrial, trip-hop and other traditional meditation music. Incorporating basic poses in a relaxed environment, while focusing on safe body mechanics. Although this is a traditional yoga class in practice, you can definitely expect it to be darker than what you may typically associate with yoga. Creating unique soundtracks using music from an eclectic mix of bands, we create a meditative space for those who may not relate to the birds and the waterfalls... if you know what I mean.

Our goal is to spread the benefits of yoga to a nearly untouched demographic, people like us, the underground art and music communities. People with depression, anxiety, alcoholism, drug addition, insecurities, phobias, dark passengers, etc. People who, in all rights, may need it the most to lead rich and fulfilling lives.

"You can't fully appreciate the light until you understand the darkness."




We don't have our own studio or gym. Instead, we set up in whatever random spaces will have us. Currently, we teach a weekly class at one location in Pittsburgh (classes are $10 each):

      UNION PROJECT | THURSDAYS (except 3rd Thurs. of the month), 6:00-7:00pm
      801 North Negley Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15206
      ::In the ATRIUM ROOM::
      www.UnionProject.org


We also offer private and group private YO)))GA classes. 

Want to do yoga in your back yard this summer? Or at the park? 
Maybe even during your lunch break at work?
If you've got the space, we've got the mats! 
Email us at blackyoga@innervenus.org to schedule a class. 
($50 minimum/$10 per person)



Instructed by Kimee Massie, who has been trained through YogaFit, with mix-tape soundtracks compiled by Scott Massie & Chad Hammitt of the Innervenus Music Collective.
