Vinyl Vinyasa with DJ Ali at Whole Sky Yoga, Friday at 7pm
I'd seen DJ Ali's name on fliers all over New Paltz and in my Facebook feed when I first moved back to the Hudson Valley. We had some mutual friends, so I knew we'd cross paths eventually.
One night last winter, I popped into Market Market to hang quickly before another event, and she was spinning classic 90s flames. For the first time in months, it was a party that I didn't want to leave!
(At the time, I was unpacking ten years of a career and lifestyle filled with sometimes-mesmerizing "VIP" access — while also dealing with the fact that it no longer served me. In my music-industry evacuee haze, bands, DJs and the local nightlife usually left much to be desired. But with Missy Elliott in the background of the moment Ali was curating, transitioning back to my hometown community to teach yoga felt manageable— maybe even right.)
A couple weeks later, Ali and I met in person, and a hefty co-sign from an always-fab mentor / friend I adore came soon after. Tamar confirmed what I already knew: Ali was a baddy.
Join us on Friday night, March 25, 7pm-9m to welcome the weekend and celebrate Spring with 2-hours of yoga flow alongside a live DJ! With the support of Sara Trapani and the amazing WSY community, Vinyl Vinyasa will surely be a soothing and fun night for all— just like that night back in February at MKT. Hope to see you there!
