Techno Yoga with Rob Bennett & DJ Crawford

Techno Yoga with Rob Bennett & DJ Crawford Techno Yoga is a very free form of yoga done to Techno music. This approach is very different to the competitive, mechanical and gymnastic yoga forms commonly taught these days.

We find Techno music ideal because of its hypnotic, trance-inducing quality. Rob Bennett has been practising and teaching Desikachar yoga for 50 years. He was lucky to attend workshops with Sri T.K.V. Desikachar himself, the son of Sri Krishnamacharya as well as learning with his students for many years in the early 70s. This form of yoga is very different to the competitive, mechanical and gymnastic 'yoga' taught commonly these days in fitness studios. Hatha yoga was originally intended as a meditative, centering discipline where healing in the sense of "becoming whole" or connecting with the source was the main focus. In his teaching he tries to remain true to these old yogic aspirations and to support participants within their capabilities – helping them to explore boundaries without pressure. DJ Crawford has been active for more than 25 years. Starting in South Africa, moving to London and ending up in Berlin, he has always sought to share his wide ranging and developing taste in music with the aim of moving people to dance. Clubbing in Tokyo in the early 90s, the nascent house, techno and drum & bass scenes of post-apartheid South Africa, Andrew Weatherall’s Rotter’s Golf Club parties in London as well as Berlin’s love of techno have all left their mark. Significant friendships with African and Columbian music enthusiasts have helped to further widen his horizons, fuel his collector’s instinct and influence him as a DJ.

Mission: Our mission is to make yoga enjoyable for all at festivals and in clubs.

Our Technoyoga session at the Fusion festival last week stood out for me chiefly, as a dj, because of the response generated by those involved. There was an infectious energy that just seemed to build, coalesce and come to a peak with the last track. Here is a pretty faithful recreation of the set.

This is a recreation of the set I played at Fusion 2019 for Technoyoga with Rob Bennett.

Techno Yoga with Rob Bennett & DJ Crawford

Rob Bennett and DJ Crawford did the very first Techno Yoga workshop in 2010 at the 2nd World Congress of the Hedonist International in Riebau, Germany. Since then they have developed and expanded the idea.

Having tried doing yoga to various kinds of music, Rob discovered that electronic dance music helped him best to quiet his mind and enter into a deeper state of trance whilst practicing asanas. He also found that this hypnotic music made him more creative in his practice leading him to new possibilities; relaxing the constrictions of the formal, traditional yoga model.

Now he has developed a very intuitive and enjoyable way of doing yoga that is partly concentrated and precise, partly free movement merging into dance. He loves to share this in workshops at dance clubs and music festivals to let participants see if it works for them.

Rob Bennett has been practicing and teaching Desikachar yoga for 50 years. Rob was lucky to attend workshops with Sri T.K.V. Desikachar himself, the son of Sri Krishnamacharya as well as learning with his students for many years. This kind of yoga is very different to the competitive, mechanical and gymnastic kind of yoga taught commonly these days in fitness studios.
