Get ready to fold, twist, and bridge your way through the galaxy with YogaQuest at CONsole Room 2017! Your quest will be guided by a narrator and a certified yoga instructor, as the class embarks on an epic, and often ridiculous, journey through Doctor Who fandom. Move through the story by following a yoga routine designed to improve strength, balance, and flexibility. No previous yoga experience, special clothing, or mats necessary!
YogaQuest is a unique and dynamic wellness business that is blazing a trail for those outside the mainstream – geeks, nerds, and anybody who has experienced gym trauma – to engage with wellness on their own terms. Both in studio and through outreach, YogaQuest challenges traditional wellness narratives to make self-care more accessible and fun for all. With narrated yoga classes that incorporate movement and fan-fiction storytelling, as well as discussion panels focused on making wellness one’s own – rather than conforming to mainstream wellness narratives – YogaQuest presents a radical alternative to mainstream wellness spaces.
YogaQuest is pleased to have a vibrant online community, online content for home practice, and the opportunity to engage with the geek community at both fan-run and larger pop culture conventions across the country. Their Narrated Yogic Adventures and discussion panels have been featured at New York Comic Con (NYCC), Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2), Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC), and at Wizard World Comic Cons in Minneapolis, Chicago and Philadelphia. YogaQuest has been featured in such publications as: The Wall Street Journal, YogaInternational, Geek & Sundry, and Atlas Obscura. YogaQuest maintains a studio in Minneapolis that offers regular classes, workshops, and teacher trainings.
