00:00:16,139 –> 00:00:18,690
co-founded y7 with her husband Mason and

00:00:23,880 –> 00:00:28,230
to open y7 so y7 is sweat dripping beat

9
00:00:28,230 –> 00:00:30,779
bumping candle at yoga we took out the

10
00:00:30,779 –> 00:00:33,899
mirrors and we really tried to make a

11
00:00:33,899 –> 00:00:36,149
safe space where anybody you know what

12
00:00:36,149 –> 00:00:39,210
no matter their practice level or where

13
00:00:39,210 –> 00:00:40,710
they are you know their life or where

14
00:00:40,710 –> 00:00:42,570
they are with their bodies they can feel

15
00:00:42,570 –> 00:00:44,070
comfortable to work on whatever they

16
00:00:44,070 –> 00:00:46,640
need to that day I can testify to that I

17
00:00:46,640 –> 00:00:49,289
literally don’t take classes and I

18
00:00:49,289 –> 00:00:51,570
actually started taking classes at y7

19
00:00:51,570 –> 00:00:53,190
probably in the last couple weeks and

20
00:00:53,190 –> 00:00:55,410
became addicted but it’s true like being

21
00:00:55,410 –> 00:00:57,420
candled it everyone else sort of

22
00:00:57,420 –> 00:00:59,520
disappears and it becomes competitive

23
00:00:59,520 –> 00:01:04,709
with yourself now you kind of touched on

24
00:01:04,709 –> 00:01:07,590
the sound I’m a DJ but in general I also

25
00:01:07,590 –> 00:01:08,369
love hip-hop

26
00:01:08,369 –> 00:01:10,560
so tell us about the music component we

27
00:01:10,560 –> 00:01:13,890
are a very very big music driven studio

28
00:01:13,890 –> 00:01:17,400
we play a lot of hip hop music and it

29
00:01:17,400 –> 00:01:19,619
was really important to me to make that

30
00:01:19,619 –> 00:01:22,229
a big part of our experience because if

31
00:01:22,229 –> 00:01:23,759
you think about it when you’re doing

32
00:01:23,759 –> 00:01:26,220
yoga I think the music really helps to

33
00:01:26,220 –> 00:01:29,900
drive and to motivate you

34
00:01:31,220 –> 00:01:34,710
so word on the street is that 50 cent

35
00:01:34,710 –> 00:01:36,540

00:01:36,540 –> 00:01:39,890

37
00:01:39,890 –> 00:01:43,470

38
00:01:43,470 –> 00:01:48,180
and was the loveliest nicest man

39
00:01:48,180 –> 00:01:50,550

40
00:01:50,550 –> 00:01:54,060

00:02:00,540 –> 00:02:03,270

44
00:02:03,270 –> 00:02:06,570
