One of the " rock star " yoga instructors as profiled by the LA Times; I first heard about Shiva Rea from Paula C. , a Carioca yogini , who had attended one of her workshops @ the now defunct Sacred Mvt. in Venice.
Shiva Rea is known for her style of vinyasa flow yoga . She also uses tunes to create the mood for her classes and workshops. A playlist off here site is themed as :
- DJ Rehmi
- DJ Cheb I Sabbah
- DJ Pathaan
- Dum Dum Project
- Nitin Sahwney
- Bill Laswell
- Ustad Sultan Khan’s RARE Elements
DJ Cheb I Sabbah is one of the contemporary voices of RAI. Rai originated from the city of Oran in Western Algeria. Modern rai is a vehicle for cynicism and rebellion , all set to a hypnotic, smoky beat.
Not surprisingly, the best proponents are now based in Paris. Cheb ( young ) Khaled, Cheb Mami and Cheb I Sabbah.
Check out DJ Cheb I Sabbah's : La Ghriba " La Kahena Remixed " to get a feel for Shiva Rea and rai's vibe -
