MC YOGI is a world-renowned yoga teacher, musician, and author on a mission to introduce yoga to large, mainstream audiences. His latest album, RITUAL MYSTICAL (feat East Forest), made history by going #1 on the Electronic charts (Aug 2016). In 2015, his ONLY LOVE IS REAL album debuted #12 Billboard Heatseekers + #24 iTunes Hiphop — featuring guest performances from Matisyahu, Trevor Hall, and Dominic Balli. In September 2017, MC YOGI released his first book SPIRITUAL GRAFFITI: Finding My True Path with HarperOne. He has performed and taught yoga everywhere, from headlining festivals and nightclubs to performing in the Forbidden City in China and even at the White House. When not on the road, MC YOGI and his wife Amanda teach at their home studio, Point Reyes Yoga, in Northern California.
MC YOGI made a lasting impact on me being a humble, genuine, wise man who's had experiences that some might not believe to be true, but that is what gave him the portal into yoga and meditation. He has a deep knowledge of hip-hop, yoga, music, and meditation all which he conveys through his music and his spoken word. We talk about if it makes sense to look for a guru/teacher, which spiritual teacher, dead or alive, would make the best MC, and about how he got into blending music and yoga to live out his greatest passions. We also talk about the content of his amazing book, Spiritual Graffiti.
I loved this interview and how much it felt like I was just talking to one of my friends about spirituality. MC has a way of connecting with people that is truly unique and helps you to understand why he is reaching millions of people through his music and telling others about his life experiences.
