Last week the Yogangster team were invited along to HMP Brixton to talk to National Prison Radio about yoga and we jumped at the chance to get involved. The benefits of yoga are something that Goldie can talk about for days so he and our resident instructor Kelly Isaac were honored to be able to share their views and skills with the radio team at Brixton.
This morning Goldie popped in to have a chat with ITV's Lorraine Kelly to discuss all things yoga, music and art! Talking about the positive influence of yoga on his life, Goldie was telling Lorraine how his new album The Journey Man would not have happened without his practice.
Back in 2011 prior to the airing of his BBC series 'By Royal Appointment' Jasmine Gardner from the London Evening Standard caught up with Goldie at a London Yoga studio. They discussed how Golide had found Bikram Yoga, what it meant to to him and much more.
In recent years there has been a large influx of yoga enthusiasts and practitioners nationwide. These days you can find a yoga class almost anywhere, from your classic yoga studios to local libraries and YMCAs. Even fitness chains have started to catch on, with many of them offering a wide range of yoga classes as an added benefit to their members.
Bikram yoga has been such an eye-opener for me these last two years. When I first began I thought to myself this is so tough, why have I chosen what could be one of the hardest, and perhaps most intense, of all the yoga practices. Bikram yoga is based upon Hatha yoga.
To coincide with the release of the retrospective album 'Alchemist' featuring all of his most well know tracks and some underground gems Goldie speaks to BBC Breakfast about how Yoga has changed his life following a water skiing accident.
