Fresh And Present In A Chair – A Story All About How, Yoga And Meditation Keeps Mike From Getting Down

Here is a little rap I put together. The words are below but you can follow it more clearly by watching the video.

This is my first outing as a rapper but it explains how I got into meditation. Hope you enjoy:).

Fresh and Present In a Chair

Now this is a story all about how,
Yoga and meditation keeps me from getting down,
And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there,
I’ll tell you how I learnt to be present in a chair!

In the West Coast of Ireland born and raised,
Far from meditation I spent most of my days,
Freaking out max, stressing, losing my cool,
Always breaking my balls, worrying like a fool,
Then a couple more thoughts got up to no good,
Started making trouble in my ‘brainyhood’,
Got in a couple of dark places and my mind got scared,
It said, yo better meditate and try some yoga whilst you’re there!

Listened to my bro, out for a beer,
He said meditate man, make your mind become clear,
If anything I could say this practice was rare,
But I thought yeah, let’s do this, get present in a chair.

Pulled up to YogaHub around 7 or 8,
And I yelled to the ‘yogi’, yo homes let’s meditate,
My mind became my kingdom, I was finally there,
To sit in my zone, fresh and present in a chair!

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
