From living in a group home for at-risk youth to becoming a renowned yoga teacher and musical innovator, MC YOGI is on a mission to bring good music and good energy into the world. Having grown up immersed in hip hop culture before finding yoga in his teens, he naturally began to integrate the two, setting yogic wisdom to hip hop beats. The result was a compelling new sound and a series of successful albums, leading to a worldwide tour, teaching and performing to tens of thousands.
His first book, Spiritual Graffiti, was released in 2017. His latest album, Ritual Mystical (feat East Forest), made history by going #1 on the Electronic charts. In 2011, MC YOGI and his wife Amanda were named ambassadors for Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative. They have performed and taught yoga at the White House, Stanford University, The Smithsonian, San Francisco Asian Art Museum, and Dallas Asian Art Museum.
“Behind the music and off the mat — MC YOGI’s story of grit and graffiti
reminds us that yoga meets us where we are and introduces us to who we are”
— Jason Mraz, multi-platinum and Grammy-winning musician
