MC Yogi "Gives Love"

What do Yoga and Hip Hop have in common? A heck of a lot! Just ask MC Yogi!

This yoga inspired artist puts a new and unique spin on rapping, freestyling and yoga. MC Yogi spent much of his teen years painting graffiti and listening to hip hop. Beastie Boys & Run DMC were his role models. He found an outlet for his creativity at an at-risk youth group during high school. When he was 18, he was introduced to Yoga and fell in love.

This discovery led him on a journey that changed him deeply, he began studying this ancient discipline and grew physically, mentally and emotionally. This video made me smile and moved me to think -- What can I do today, to spread the love and make someone else's day better?

What have you done lately to give love? It doesn't have to be a 'ginormous' gesture -- it could be as easy as holding the door open for someone, paying toll for the car behind you or just a simple smile to a stranger. At Go Inspire Go, our mantra: What Can You Do?

Thanks for your inspiration MC Yogi!

Namaste!
