    Create. Inspire. Transform. EarthRise Warrior Flow is NYC teacher Derek Beres’ first instructional DVD. Condensing his challenging yet accessible EarthRise Yoga classes at Equinox Fitness, Pure Yoga and Strala Yoga into one 75-minute Vinyasa-based flow, this easy-to-follow class focuses on strength, joint dexterity, and shoulder and hip opening. A full-time teacher since 2004, Beres’ classes are known for creating an intense focus in a playful and relaxed atmosphere, allowing the yogis to explore their bodies in a non-competitive environment. Filmed as a series of 12 mini-sequences, each flow is accompanied by a song from EarthRise SoundSystem’s debut album, ‘The Yoga Sessions.’ To be released in Summer 2011, yogis will be able to download each flow separately via iTunes, or enjoy the entire sequence by purchasing the entire class. More information on digital and physical distribution will be available soon. Conceived and sequenced by Derek Beres: http://www.derekberes.com Filmed and edited by Fifth Column Films: http://www.fifthcolumnfilms.com Audio mix and engineering by Duke Mushroom at Yoga Organix: http://www.yogaorganix.com A huge thanks to the yogis—Sasha Dmochowski, Stephanie Bartolomeo and Matt Lombardo—as well as Mike Hull and Shiloh Crawford at Fifth Column Films, Duke at Yoga Organix/EarthRise SoundSystem, and Rachel Schnipper for opening up her space for us to play inside of.

    • Junoon: Bombay Dub Orchestra (EarthRise SoundSystem's Warrior 3 Remix)

      Our latest EarthRise SoundSystem video features Jackson, Truth Now & Srikala on vocals. Released as part of Bombay Dub Orchestra's new album, The NY Remixes (Six Degrees), we were psyched to contribute this track with an old school hip-hop flavor and BDO's gorgeous string instrumentation and female vocal parts. Derek shot the video during his last month in NYC before moving to Los Angeles, so the nostalgia of his time in Harlem and Brooklyn, as well as trips to Agadir and Casablanca, Morocco, underscore Duke's punchy beats and beautiful arrangements. http://www.earthrisesoundsystem.com http://www.bombaydub.com http://www.sixdegreesrecords.com http://www.srikalogy.com/ http://truthnowmusic.com/ http://jacksonwhalan.bandcamp.com/

              This song was inspired by a lot of joy and faith in people, especially the youth. Director and friend Damani Baker (Still Bill) and I went to see Geoffrey Holder’s movie, “Carmen and Geoffrey”….Mr. Holder said his response to the ugliness of mans inhumanity to man was and is to reveal the indisputable beauty and magic that humanity is capable of through art. He said, “I opened doors and I stood.” I’ve witnessed this kind of alchemy in the teenagers I get to work with from conflict zones, they’re willingness to open doors that have been boarded up by generations before them and stand in a place of possibility amazes and inspires me. I feel a lot of us feel like we have to apologize for our enthusiasm for life and turn the volume down on our inner voice to keep clear of judgement. I want to break out of that, especially at this time in our culture where public shaming seems to be at an all time high. I sing this song as much to myself as I do for anyone, and I dedicate it to Sophia Joy.
