Realigning Your Chakras at Umphrey’s McGee

Yoga at Umphrey’s McGee at CrossroadsKC, 8/31/17

I recently saw the whitest thing I’ve ever seen at a show. A couple was doing acroyoga during Umphrey’s McGee‘s set at CrossroadsKC. This woman was upside down with her elbows balanced on this guy’s shins. If you listen to a jam band show upside down, it will realign your chakras. You will actually hear the transitions more clearly and your third eye will open. At first, I thought it was ridiculous, then I realized I was just jealous I didn’t have a yoga partner. No, I was slamming whiskey in the corner with some bearded dudes. I’m going to start a new business venture, www.hippieacroyogajambandmatch.com, to find my true love. Namaste!
