American idiot
Can you work these moves into your Vinyasa?

This Saturday, Pure Yoga is joining the chorus of music-themed yoga classes (We’ve seen Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, and Reggae at other studios) to host a “rockin'” Vinyasa flow class set to the soundtrack of Broadway’s American Idiot, the rock opera based on Green Day’s 2001 album. Tanya Boulton will teach and attendees will leave with the Broadway cast recording.

It’s hard to picture focused breathing during Chatarungas with soundtrack lyrics like “Welcome to a new kind of tension, all across the alien nation,” and laments about shallow hearts beating down a boulevard of broken dreams, but, hey—it could be unexpectedly cathartic. And Pure does promise you’ll have “the time of your life” (American Idiot’s go-to encore song).

While Spring Awakening’s melodies might have been a little more conducive to Trikonasanas, the most important point is that 100% of proceeds from the class will benefit Broadway Cares, a nonprofit that supports AIDS research, women’s health, and other worthy initiatives.

Green Day’s American Idiot Yoga Class, Saturday, December 18th, 1:30-2:30PM, $30, Pure East, 203 East 86th Street, www.pureyoga.com
