Drake fans — a one-of-a-kind, “0 to 100” yoga experience is coming to Atlanta.

The Namasdrake: Drake Yoga tour is making a “back to back” stop in the city at Rhythma Studios, 555 Whitehall St. SW on Aug. 25 and 26.

Club lights will take the Vinyasa Flow class up a notch to “YOLO” levels.

Cassady Dill, co-founder of Namasdrake, said she encourages the instructors to “put their own personal spin on this hip-hop form of yoga.”

“It is electric. A lot of the women come in really excited, and I’m happy to say when they leave they are just as excited and wanting to go to the next class,” Dill said.

Drizzy’s older hits, from albums like “Take Care,” and current “Scorpion” chart-toppers will be on the tracklist during the hourlong event. Dill said she chose the Grammy-winning rapper as the theme because she felt that his music is universal to people of all backgrounds.

“Everyone seems to really love Drake. The record sales show it. The fans show it, and Drake fans are really, really … cultish. Everyone has their favorite album, their favorite song, and they stick by this man through every album,” she said.

Her tour has sold out in other big cities, such as Los Angeles, since it debuted there in 2016. When Dill got letters requesting that Namasdrake come to Atlanta, she knew she had to bring the themed yoga class to the city.

She said the event is for both seasoned yogis and newcomers.

“What I love about the event is it brings people who have never experienced yoga to the table, particularly minorities,” Dill said. “We mirror the urban scene with particularly posh and otherwise high-end form of fitness. We pretty much make it accessible and affordable and really, really fun.”

Early bird tickets are currently $20 online. On Aug. 25, class times include 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. On Aug. 26, one class time will be at 12:30 p.m.

The organizers encourage attendees to bring their own mats because there will be limited ones available.
