MEET | JORDAN COHEN
Featured 7.31- 8.6.17 | Let me be completely honest: I am not a fan of yoga. I don't have the patience or the mindset to listen to chanting monks while I move slowly and deliberately through a bunch of moves that feel a little too contrived to my very Type A personality. Except there's an exception: Jordan Cohen's PLAYLIST. yoga in LA (because, LA). Here, yoga is based on the music and oh, how good that music is — there's even a resident DJ who creates all of PLAYLISTS.' playlists. It's not surprising considering Cohen was born and raised on the East Coast and went on to spend the better part of two decades as a DJ, spinning from NYC to Madrid and everywhere in between (and for all of you Britney fans out there, he DJ'd for her at a movie premiere in New Orleans back in the day. #goals). So while he might be colorblind (he is), he has quite an ear for music and quite an instinct for creating a refreshing new way to get your yoga on. As he says, Life's just better with a little music.
Welcome to Jordan's week.
more about jordan
Jordan Cohen was born and raised on the East Coast and moved out to California from NYC almost nine years ago after leaving a job at a big NY-based law firm to work for a family investment office. Some would say he has East Coast determination and street smarts with a newly found laid back Cali style. Music has always been a passion of his — he received his first set of turntables for his Bar Mitzvah and was hooked ever since. He DJ'd for 15 years (middle school through law school) all across the world from NYC to Madrid and founded PLAYLIST. yoga in West Hollywood, California, which is a modern, music-based approach to yoga. PLAYLIST. believes in a dynamic, upbeat workout that ignites the body and clears the mind. He started PLAYLIST. because he wanted to build an intimate fitness community based around an approachable and kick-ass yoga workout. Music helps put a modern spin on the ancient practice of yoga and it provides an immediate connection within the community by allowing people to experience yoga in a more lighthearted way. Life's just better with a little music.
