All my spin instructors turn the lights off in class; the entire back of the spin room is glass and looks out toward the cardio machines so it is not completey dark, but it allows us to concentrate on what we are doing without the glare of lights.

They conduct the class exactly like any other spin class. The beat of the music sets the cadence and the instructor tells you the rest. I have never heard it called "soul spinning"; I have been spinning for 7 years at different clubs and the lights are out. I guess what is "old" is "new" again with a new name.

Like you, Baron, this was done at various gyms I've been to, many years before it was called Soul Spinning. I liked the anonymity of the darkened room, where you are less aware of what everyone else is doing.

LOL, a wine tasting after! Seriously !!

We have done this years ago. Never called it Soul Spinning. It's ok, we also used a drummer. It's fun but really doesn't help you get better. A mirror and good instructor that walks around does the most.

We did this on Friday nights and didn't go super hard. Kind of a fun thing. Some would taste wine after. Ya, I know.

While at one of my spin classes the other day our instructor talked about a new fad called "Soul Spinning". Apparantly they turn off the lights have music with a beat that enables you to get in contact with yourself and what you want. Have you heard of this type of spinning and do you know exactly how they conduct a class. I am always interested in new approaches to anything,

Regard,
