Urban Yogis - Moby's Story of Music, Health, and Yoga

Category:  Meditation And Yoga

Published by

“I get a lot more work done and I’m a lot happier with the work when I’m healthy as opposed to sick and hungover.”

Wise words. It may go against the ‘starving artist’ motif, but take it from internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, Moby, who is certainly no stranger to success. Practicing a healthy lifestyle pays off in more ways than one. Eleven albums, fifteen awards (including two VMAs), and collaborations with the likes of Bono and David Bowie constitute a highly successful electronic music career. In addition to the millions of records he’s sold around the world, Moby practices yoga, keeps to a vegan diet, and lobbies for animal rights.

Moby features in the latest interview session on The Chopra Well’s URBAN YOGIS discussing yoga and the role lifestyle plays in a successful artistic career. You’ll see him in conversation here with Eddie Stern, who hosts the rest of the series. But as it turns out, these two have been friends for 25+ years! It was Eddie who first introduced Moby to yoga, and here they are years later chilling in ‘happy baby’ pose from the balcony of Moby’s Los Angeles home.

  • Peace is divine and natural for us. Think positive, live in peace with yourself and others. Feel the peace and spread it throughout. Do not stress, relax, no worries. Send healing intentions to Earth. Appreciate Mother Nature, say thanks to nature and the animal kingdoms. Appreciate small things around you, slow the time.. Eathy ealthy and life energy food...Think positive, think peace, think love..

  • I LOVE YOU MOBY!!! When my big brother first had me listen to the album Everything Is Wrong about 14 years (give or take) ago-it completely changed my life! I became a vegan & thought about life around me much differently & became hooked on electronic music. Just wanna say thanks! Peace-Love-Unity-Respect!!

  • i enjoyed both of these interviews with moby tremendously. i can see how yoga has softened him. i love his music, perceived him as a bit arrogant (maybe his on drugs phase...?) before but now `on` yoga he is just pure sweetness. i would have loved to hear how moving to LA has contributed also, since he lived in NY for such a long time. great work, Eddie, and it`s so nice to see you too!. I used to practice in your studio years ago. xo.
