With its mix of mood lighting and wireless LED headphones, silent yoga promises a sensory experience that allows you to completely tune out the world—while better tuning into your bliss.

The trend, which combines the technology of a silent disco with a yoga class, was originally brought to life by the Sound Off headphones company and has quickly gained popularity throughout the world.

But isn’t yoga, by its very nature, intended to be a quiet practice?

We asked yoga instructor Michaela Vazačová, the pioneering founder of Silent Yoga Prague, to enlighten us:

“This new style of yoga, using special wireless headphones to eliminate environmental noise, allows for better concentration and a stronger experience of the whole session.” She adds, “It’s a hybrid for yoga and music lovers.”

The instructor’s voice and music (Vazačová’s playlists favor everything from Moloko to Morcheeba) are streamed via short-range radio frequency; the amplified sound is made audible, allowing attendees to be able to hear the instructor without any difficulty.

While many silent yoga sessions are devoted to Vinyasa flow, Vazačová’s lessons are unique in their use of a lesser-known yoga technique:

 “These silent yoga sessions are all in the style of Strala, a yoga style that combines elements of tai chi, qigong, and shiatsu,” she says.

What initially debuted as a mobile studio—Vazačová still offers private classes—will now be a regular fixture at Energy Studio in Prague 1 where, from June 7, silent yoga lessons will be offered every Thursday at 7:30 pm.

Regular silent yoga sessions will also take place every first Sunday of the month at Holfit Studio in Prague 10 with a special free English-friendly Silent Yoga Night slated July 13 in honor of World Yoga Day and Global Wellness Day.

Lessons are designed for all levels from beginner to advanced; plans for taking this new brand of yoga to parties and festivals, complete with live DJs, are in the works.

Says Vazačová, an amateur DJ, and pianist, “When I came along to silent yoga, I knew that this is what I really want to do. The headphones upgrade the lesson into a truly magnificent holistic experience.”
