LIVE Neosoul & Yoga

DORIAN'S LIVE NEOSOUL AND YOGA - yoga flows featuring Dorian's original live neosoul/ smooth jazzy music you can groove to - have toured throughout California and landed him a shout out in LA YOGA MAGAZINE and a recent online interview in LAYOGA.COM's MUSIC SECTION with Editor, Felicia Tomasko! With vocal stylings similar to India Aria and Stevie Wonder, Angelinos love Dorian serenading them with uplifting soulful lyrics as they move through asanas led by a featured yoga teacher!

 

Felicia Tomasko writes: "Throughout Los Angeles, there are creative artists who are bringing their yoga practice to life in innovative ways. Neosoul Artist Dorian is one of those people. Through his frequent collaborations with teachers, and through his music (self-help set to song), he offers inspiration in all of his work."

How do music and yoga connect for you?

I knew I wanted to do more than sing in bars and clubs. I wanted to also share my music in venues that supported health and wellness.

So, when I experienced Michael Franti singing at a yoga flow in the parking lot of The Greek Theatre here in LA before his concert, I thought to myself, “That’s what I want to do!”

With yoga and live music, you’re essentially combining two powerful healing modalities. It’s a double dose of soul medicine. Especially if the music has conscious lyrics that inspire and uplift people. This practice sets my soul on fire!

 

What are some significant collaborations?

Lululemon Athletica in Studio City was the first place I ever did my live music and yoga event! They were offering free yoga every Sunday and I went to their store manager and said, “Hey, I wanna rock my neosoul music during an entire yoga flow with one of my yogi teacher buddies, can I try it out?” and they said, “Sure!” So, the LA tour of my Live Neosoul and Yoga event began from a collaboration with that company’s store.

Some of the Yoga teachers I rock with on my events include: James Woods AKA Dat Yoga Dude, Ariana Bates Stefanosis Hansraj Singh and June Elizabeth Williams.. They know my music so well that they incorporate my lyrics into their instruction. Sometimes they’ll do fun stuff like have people snap their fingers while in warrior pose or break into a free style dance moment or even start a sing-along. It becomes more than just a class, but a real musical experience.

 

Testimonials: 

 

"The yoga flow and music together felt very healing and I needed that. I need a lot of healing."

"You took me back to a time when I was young and surrounded by music."

"I was wondering how the music and yoga instruction were going to work, but you [and the yoga teacher] vibe together so beautifully."  

"This was the first yoga flow I've done since I had my baby and your lyrics really helped me to be okay with the process of coming back into my body."

"Your song I AM [about being true to yourself] had me in tears during the early part of the flow. I cried tears of joy and I am not a crier."

"You and your yoga teachers are doing a really good thing for people with this."
