Gina Turner Releases New EP, Teaches Yoga at Sea: Listen to Her Playlist Here
The DJ set sail on EDM cruise Holy Ship!!! and taught some vinyasa on board.
The dance musical festival cruise ship Holy Ship!!! returned to shore yesterday, January 12, after four musical days at sea. While most cruisers set sail to enjoy the bounty of DJ sets by everyone from A-Trak to Zedd (and even a surprise appearance by Tiësto), there is time on the voyage for some non-musical activities as well, often presented by the artists themselves. Diplo leads a scavenger hunt, Oliver hosts a game of Twister and Gina Turner teaches a yoga class.
Turner, whose new EP, “Shake/Oscillator” dropped last week, shared her yoga playlist with us, revealing a softer musical side for the typically hard-hitting DJ. Check it out below:
“I find yoga really grounds me and centers me both mentally and physically,” says Turner. “Due to my somewhat hectic travel schedule it’s nice to have something like this and what’s great about yoga is that it can literally be done anywhere.”
Turner, who is expecting her first child this spring with husband DJ Laidback Luke, says she started practicing yoga as a child, to complement dance classes. She intensified her practice after college, even as her DJing career was taking off, ultimately earning her teaching certification.
As for yoga classes on a party boat, Turner says her vinyasa flow-style class will provide a good balance for some of the more wild activities on board. She points out: “It’s good to calm people down.”
“Shake/Oscillator” is available now through Mixmash Records imprint Ones To Watch.
