Fury Yoga

Time Out (Melbourne) - - THINGS TO DO - De­lima Shanti

RUN BY KEELY Win­dred from Bey Yoga (the yoga off­shoot of the pop­u­lar Bey Dance Bey­on­céthemed dance classes) and Ed Hunter from the Break Room, Fury Yoga is about get­ting the health ben­e­fits of yoga with less of the tra­di­tional prin­ci­ples (which are fine, but not for ev­ery­one). Fury Yoga is a place for yo­gis to re­lease ten­sions and for­get about a shitty day at work with a com­bi­na­tion of en­er­getic Vinyasa and slower Hatha move­ments, a bit of med­i­ta­tion, and killer tunes. A typ­i­cal class might be sound­tracked by angst-rid­den mu­sic like Ala­nis Moris­sette’s ‘You Oughta Know’, ‘Killing in the Name of’ by Rage Against the Ma­chine, or Ri­hanna’s ‘Bitch Bet­ter Have My Money’. Fury Yoga is in­stead a place where you can vent your anger or say “FU” to the uni­verse if you need to. Win­dred says, “It’s in­ter­est­ing to see that all but one of our stu­dents so far have been ladies. Ladies are gen­er­ally more in­ter­ested in yoga, but I think there’s more to it. I think so­ci­ety puts an ex­pec­ta­tion on women to be cool, calm and col­lected at all times and to not make waves. An an­gry woman can be seen as hys­ter­i­cal or mas­cu­line. So women in par­tic­u­lar lack ways of deal­ing with fury. So that’s what we are here for!” The ses­sions run monthly (soon to be fort­nightly) at Bar Open’s up­stairs ban­d­room and you get a free beer af­ter class, so if you’re com­ing off a full-on week let Win­dred guide you through a cathar­tic yoga class. En­try price in­cludes mat hire, so just bring a towel and some wa­ter.
