YOUR KIDS WILL DISCOVER PEACE & MINDFULNESS WHILE BEING CREATIVE!
One may say, "Hip-hop and yoga? It makes no sense!" However, we at Kinetic Vibez beg to differ. At its origin, hip-hop culture was created to be a vehicle used by young people for self-expression, self-knowledge, and to have fun. Yoga gives us the tools needed to explore our inner selves and increase our mindfulness. Combining hip-hop and yoga allows students to become culturally aware, emotionally competent, and innovative global citizens.
Kinetic Vibez is an artistic wellness movement that focuses on introducing a holistically creative lifestyle to youth, ages 7 to 19. By fusing yoga, meditation, and hip-hop, students can overcome stress, depression, and bullying. Kinetic Vibez gives students the opportunity to express themselves through hip-hop music production, poetry, and art. Students will be able to connect with other youth who share the same creative interests, building a social network of young creative individuals.

Rajesh Sekhar brings with him experience working alongside children in need of an alternative approach (Autism) as well as children in disadvantaged areas and situations. He is also the former Operations Manager and Head of Sales/Marketing for a company that specialized in creating after-school curriculum with a project-based learning approach based on the teaching methods of Joseph Renzulli. This alternative approach to education proved to be very effective and led to increased understanding and retention of the objectives introduced.
Combining his knowledge of classical Indian Yogic techniques with his experience of using alternative methods to teach children, his unique curriculum targets the 5 factors of personality development and introduces meditative techniques to the learner.
