Break dancing sensation comes to La Jolla as part of yoga class

By Ashley Mackin

Arthur Cadre, the 21-year- old break-dancer featured in the YouTube sensation “Break Ton Neck,” is adding something special to the Your Buddhi yoga party 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10. After the all-level vinyassa yoga class, to be held at a private residence on La Jolla Farms, Cadre will perform.

A screen shot from Arthur cadre’s break-dancing video ‘Break Ton neck’ on youTube where he shows off his skills.

The French dancer is living in Montreal. “I am really excited to come to La Jolla since it will be the first time I am coming to California for a performance. I really enjoy the United States and I’m dying to visit the Salk Institute of Louis Kahn, whom I admire very much,” he said.

Of his dance stylings, Cadre said, “I like to create my own moves. I like to mix flexibility with power and dance. I practice a new kind of dance, which is more like circus style.”

His performance includes repeated instances of standing on his hands, standing on one hand and legs bending in unbelievable directions. These moves are similar to what is taught in vinyassa yoga, so his participation seemed a natural idea.

“The reason we invited him is there’s a lot of similarities to the way trains and the things he has to do tobeabletodosomeof those movements (to yoga); a lot of concentration, a lot of practice, dedication, strength and flexibility,” said Carolina Vivas, co- founder of Your Buddhi.

After seeing the video online, Vivas reached out to Cadre on Facebook and offered to fly him from Montreal to San Diego. The class will include a toned- down version of some of the postures seen in the video.

At the event, Vivas and her partner will teach a yoga class outside a private mansion in La Jolla. DJ Derek Beres of Earthrise SoundSystem will provide music and Michael DeFrancisco will close the class with a guided meditation. After the class, Cadre will perform 5-10 minutes of original moves.

“It’s a really unique experience and we really want to get the yoga class out of the studio … we like to combine art, music. We just like to infuse the event with more artists qualities so it’s not just about yoga,” Vivas said.

Tickets are $45. For more information and the event’s location, e-mail
