In DJ Chakra Khan’s universe, the dance floor is as activating as the yoga studio, the studio as silky as the floor. In her classes, the award-winning studio owner and world-traveling instructor redefines “yoga music” on a weekly basis, dropping knowledge culled from her other life as a vinyl record collector and community radio programmer. She brings this mindfulness and meticulous music curation with her to clubs and house parties, where her smooth, sultry, and spontaneous sets cover a spectrum of sound encompassing indie, electronic, funk, reggae, hip-hop and a healthy dose of old school hits from the 80s and 90s. Roll out your mat or roll out to the club and explore your edges with Chakra Khan, specializing in putting the needle in the groove of your chakras, getting down with your down dog, and spiritualized syncopation.
