You might not be familiar with his name, but you sure are familiar with his face: Lamonte Goode is a self-taught dancer and acrobat, and has danced in everything from commercials to tv shows, to music videos of major artists like Rihanna, Shakira and Snoop Dogg. He is better known as Cyberyoga and is a pioneer of the futuristic fusion of yoga and dance. Already dancing since highschool, Lamonte completely emerged himself in the dance culture. Despite his love for dance, he felt like something was missing, which led him to the path of yoga. With the sense of spirituality and the connection with the mind, body and breath that yoga brought him, he had found the missing link. He started to embed the yoga positions into his dance, and eventually Cyberyoga was born: Cyber is an acronym for Calisthenics, Yoga, Breakdance, Evolution, and Revolution, all of which Lamonte believes reflect movement, expression and growth – a transition to newer possibilities. His Cyberyoga practices nowadays consist of flexibility, fitness and strength classes.
