Hip Hop Asana at the Yoga Journal Conference NYC 2012


I am very excited to be leading two classes during the main part of the conference in April 2012. One of the classes I will be teaching is of course Hip Hop Asana. The class will also double as a fundraiser for The Andrew Glover Youth Program (AGYP) in the Lower East Side. It is a probation program that I use to attend and played a fundamental role in who I am today by keeping me out of jail. All the money that I make for the class will be donated directly to AGYP and there will also be a chance for people to donate at the conference or through Yoga Journals website. The money will be used to provide legal counsel for young adults unable to pay for it themselves. All the music for the class will be played by an incredible DJ Derek Beres of EarthRise Sound System. The warm up of the class will be a Hip Hop dance led by Alex Febre my brother...it is going to be crazy... In order to get people excited about this class I will be shooting a video Saturday on what is HHA. Please check in over the next few weeks to see what going on...

Hey! My name is Walter Hidalgo and I wanted to inform you about the release of my book entitled: BEYOND THE FOUR WALLS: THE RISING MINISTRY AND SPIRITUALITY OF HIP-HOP. Please go to www.beyondthefourwalls.info for more information. I would love to see how we can collaborate with each other on what it appears to me to be the immersion of Hip-hop music/culture and spirituality/yoga.
