What people are saying…

BLACK YO)))GA turns relaxation into metal ritual
By Scott Mervis
“The DVD is something like a soothing nightmare, with the ominous look of the ritual scene in ‘Eyes Wide Shut.’”

Heavy Balance
By Margaret Welsh (Halloween issue cover story, Photos by Heather Mull)
“…The result is a soundscape of brooding, spaced-out doom, driven by cello and guitars, and accented with gongs, singing bowls and ethereal voices. ‘The music itself became very similar to the flowing, natural process that you might experience in a yoga class’”

LOUDER THAN WAR, October 2015
dark ambient space drone yoga freaks
By johnrobb
”Convincingly dark drone stoner rock classical space rock weirdness for doing yoga to. Instead of fluffy yoga this is the post Sunn O))) drone rock version that is far more meditative and effective for deep yoga practice but also stands up on its own as great music.” – Louderthanwar

Downward facing doom: when yoga meets heavy metal
By Kim Kelly
“Any workout playlist can be improved with a dash of heavy metal. Whether you’re lifting weights to Pantera, doing crunches to Destroyer 666, or trying and probably failing to time your cardio to Reign in Blood, hearing that raw power come screaming out of your headphones is a surefire way to kickstart a serious adrenaline rush. It makes sense on a deeper level, too: at its black heart, metal is all about catharsis, and pushing your body to its sweaty limit is right up there among the most cathartic things you can do without getting arrested.”

Introducing: the BLACK YO)))GA Meditation Ensemble

Doom Camp 2015

For immediate release…

BLACK YO)))GA has signed a worldwide deal with Screaming Crow Records to release it’s very first DVD/CD in September 2015!

BLACK YO)))GA, created by 200-hour RYT certified instructor, Kimee Massie, is vinyasa style yoga set to drone, noise, stoner metal, ambient, industrial, space doom, and other traditional meditation music. It incorporates basic poses in a relaxed environment, while focusing on safe body mechanics. A traditional yoga class in practice, however darker than what you may typically associate with the practice in the Western world.

Since 2012, the music for classes has been a series of mix-tapes. This particular recording, however, was performed and created by the BLACK YO)))GA Meditation Ensemble, an eclectic group of metallic hippies and doom lords, headed up by Kimee’s husband, Scott Massie. The ensemble has created a soundscape tailored to form a heavy meditative space and spread the benefits of yoga to people in their own art and music communities. People who may battle depression, anxiety, alcoholism, drug addiction, trauma/PTSD, phobias, dark passengers, etc. People who may not feel they fit into the typical yoga classes. People who, in all rights, may need the balance and release of yoga the most to lead rich and fulfilling lives.

This project consists of two releases. The first will be the BLACK YO)))GA DVD/instructional video, Asanas Ritual Vol 1, directed by Joseph Stammerjohn of Eyes to the Sky Films, containing a full 1-hour yoga class, stylized and set to their original score. The second release will be a CD version of the soundtrack on it’s own. Both releases contain plenty of bonus features and will be available in stores and online by the first of October via Screaming Crow Records.

Namaste, Bitches.
