My Creative Director, dear brother, friend, Spiritual Advisor..CREATOR da’shon is. is producing a project called BLISS YOGA FLOW DVD , he needs your eyes, ears, mind, heart and support. This is a project that is geared to enlighten and awaken the human spirit. has been a huge contribution to my company and me as a human being that strives to embrace excellence in my daily walk..Check it out..One Love..Dj A-Ski

In the beginning….

a message from..
Elika Aird

It all began one night in the parking lot of one of Atlanta’s hottest restaurant/bars, SoundTable. New filmmaker Da’shon is. was showing me the music video he recently directed. I was so amazed at the quality and creativity! I started dreaming aloud and sharing my thoughts of creating a yoga video unlike any other on the market. This video would include yogis of color and reach a diverse range of viewers. Da’shon is., being an elevated man with a great sense of adventure and vision was more than ready to direct. I thought this was an almost ludicrous idea. But I spoke it into existence, and in a short time my dream became a full blown reality…with lights, cameras and yogis!

Our vision…

This video will introduce a new way of living to an under-served community. For people living with depression, dis-ease, and disinterest, the BlissTemple DVD will change their lives. It will show the world how living a life that honors the body temple, creates a life full of Bliss. As African-Americans, we are often under represented on the yoga scene. This makes access to yoga difficult for people who would really benefit from it. BlissTemple Yoga Flow aims reach a clientele both inside and outside the yoga community. We want to empower ALL beings to be happy and free. We want to encourage people live in alignment in the Blissful bodies we were born with!

How you can support….

The video has been shot, and now we must raise funds for the editing process. We aim to raise $7200 to pay for post-production costs.

Everyone has graciously donated their time and services to this project. But in order to pay for editing, pressing the DVDs and getting it out to the world we’re gonna need your help. Because so many studios and consumers have expressed an interest in pushing this video, we are confident the funds will come together and allow for a speedy post-production. When our goal is met, we will have this groundbreaking video on the market by fall!

We want you to know that whatever donation you give is a Blessing. Look to the right to see the sweet rewards you’ll receive for your contribution.
