"So, is this like, yoga on skateboards?"
It's always fun to hear interpretations of what people think SKATEYOGI is. Some think we'll be doing downward dog on our boards while the kids come up with even funnier ideas relating to Yogi Bear or even yogurt. The truth is, on the surface, we originally called it Skate Yogis as kind of a joke when it first began as an adult skateboard class taught through an actual yoga studio Urban Asanas in Crown Heights. But on a deeper level, skateboarding can be thought of as a kind of yoga, a moving mediation that brings you into the moment. Instead of bowing with our hands in prayer, we slap high fives and cherish the experience together. You still might catch me skating around in tree pose every now and then ;)
