Happy Valentine’s Day! On this day of love, and the celebration of love we invite you to meet our guest Matthew Clark, drummer and yogi extraordinaire. Matt is a fascinating person with so many great adventures and stories. We chatted with him about living in India, yoga, life on the road touring in multiple rock bands, transcendental meditation, and his very cool record label. This was a really fun time. Please enjoy and leave a comment.
Matthew Clark is a drummer and yoga teacher. He currently resides in Los Angles and teaches yoga, plays in several rock bands and works various other jobs. He began studying yoga in 1997 and his interest rapidly intensified until he went to India for most of 1999 and explored and studied yoga. From 2000-2006 he taught yoga exclusively in community spaces free of charge and eventually did another training in 2011 and decided to teach as a job. He finds in his twin passions...wild rock and roll and a centering yoga and meditation practice a symbiotic overlap and balance.
Matthew teaches at Namaste Highland Park in Northeast LA, and currently plays in Flying Hair, Old Gold, sometimes in Adam Payne's various free form rock bands, and will be playing a few select shows in Europe this summer with his old band Ostinato, the band which led to him meeting Hannah.
