Although many conventional yoga studios make a point to create a relaxing atmosphere with quiet rooms and calming sounds, this does not appeal to everyone—so one unique yoga class set out bring music and yoga together in a way that's more appealing to the modern yogi.

Noise Yoga was established as a community that regularly practices at the Frye Art Museum, set to the tune of live music performances—particularly sounds categorized as "industrial sludge." Alongside yoga mats, another prop that's essential to the practice are amps, which project intense music from artists like Pink Void, Hanford, Jason E Anderson.

As Noise Yoga co-founder Gabe Schubiner puts it, "The focus of yoga creates a really good environment to appreciate sound, in a deep listening kind of way."
