Bibi McGill: The Down-low on her Ashtanga Yoga Practice

Yoga Journal: Please provide us with the specifics of your yoga training. Bibi McGill (Bibi McGill): It was in Thailand, on Koh Samui, that I finished my 250-hour teacher training with Paul Dallaghan, an Ashtangi from Ireland, that I received my certification. When I picked his institution, I did so because I couldn’t find one in California (where I was living at the time) that offered courses in meditation and Sanskrit, as well as anatomy, philosophy, and historical perspectives. I was not interested in a watered-down approach.

Aside from that, I serve as the lead facilitator for a ten-day yoga retreat in Hawaii.

  • BM: I started doing yoga in 1998, and when I started traveling in 2001, I would ask the concierge at every hotel where the nearest yoga studio might be found.
  • My realization came when I discovered Ashtanga yoga and realized I could learn the sequence and develop my own practice that would be constant no matter where I went.
  • What are your thoughts on the message that certain yoga studios, teachers, and the media are currently putting out into the world?
  • I believe that we must cease focusing on the same demographic and instead focus on those who are in need of assistance.
  • The fact that you have one limb, are blind, or use a wheelchair makes no difference to me.
  • I really advise everyone to attend.

Staying Grounded in Life’s Busyness

YJ: You have such a strong sense of self. Do you owe your success to your practice as a dedicated yogi? Because I am an artist and a creative person, I have a propensity to be highly emotional and all over the place. Because I am a Scorpio, this is a given. I would be unable to perform what I do and remain grounded or focused if I did not dedicate myself to my yoga practices, which are not just physical but also mental and spiritual in nature. Breathing exercises, food choices, sinus cleansing, and other practices are all part of their regimen as well.

  1. No matter what, the first few minutes of my day are dedicated to the practice of breathing, meditation, and quiet reflection.
  2. BM:I’m really thankful to be able to do what I love, which is traveling and recording songs with Beyonce.
  3. I’m making the transition to more religious music and want to record an album that will be primarily guitar-based but will also feature kirtan performers.
  4. In addition, I’d want to resume teaching yoga on a more regular basis.
  5. It’s likely that within the next year, you’ll find Bibi Kale Chips in a wider variety of flavors and in more locations than just Portland and Hawaii.
  6. Is this anything that has piqued your curiosity recently?
  7. And there’s religious music, essential oils, crystals, and so forth.
  8. I’ve always been intrigued by things that aren’t visible to the naked eye yet are still genuine.
  9. BM:Yes.
  10. With each passing year, I am confronted with an increasing number of inquiries concerning my religious beliefs and way of life.
  11. “Yeah, do that sage thing,” and “Bibi, what crystal do I use for this?” were the responses from the band’s female members on their most recent tour.

“Can you tell me what essential oil I should use for that?” In addition to working with Beyoncé and Pink and several other organizations, I also connect with yoga enthusiasts who are intrigued about the practice. We are all awakening, and we are all gaining greater knowledge.

Bibi McGill on Natural Beauty

YJ: There is a lot of discussion on natural beauty in this topic. What does “beautiful” mean to you? Beautiful things may be found all around us—in nature, in imperfections, in everything. For individuals, I believe that beauty begins and is nurtured from inside. Spiritual, emotional, physical, and energy well-being are essential for beautiful individuals who live their lives with integrity and respect for themselves and others. They are conscious of the things they say, the people with whom they associate, the kind of food they consume, and the kinds of thoughts they are having.

  • YJ: And how do you feel about your tattoos?
  • A few months ago, I realized that my tattoos were a way for me to commemorate my life—things I’ve gone through, changes, or moments when I’ve needed strength or peace—and I’m grateful for that.
  • In addition, there is a female samurai, who is there for strength.
  • Bibi’s Calming Yoga Sequence to Help You Stay Grounded is also worth a look.

Belinda McGill, better known as Bibi McGill, is an American musician who is best known as the lead guitarist and musical director of Beyoncé’s backing band, the Suga Mamas. She has also worked with P!nk, Paulina Rubio, and the Chilean rock group La Ley.

Early life and career

McGill grew up in the Colorado city of Denver. It was her father who first noticed her pretending to play guitar with a pool stick that inspired her to take up the instrument. He enrolled her in private classes when she was 12 years old. McGill’s mother, who spoke with the Denver Post, recalls her daughter playing guitar in the style of blues musicianB. B. King when she was younger. When she was born, her parents gave her the moniker “BB” to identify her. BB Queen was the moniker everyone kept calling her when she first started playing guitar, but she didn’t like it, so she changed the spelling of her name to Bibi McGill.

  • She earned a bachelor’s degree in music scoring and arranging from the University of Colorado in Boulder.
  • McGill was a member of a Christian metal band named Ezra throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s.
  • The band was quite well-known in the Denver region at the time.
  • In an interview with Ebony Magazine, she recalled receiving a phone call from Pink’s crew, who invited her to perform alongside her onSaturday Night Live because of her recognition as a result of her club appearances throughout Los Angeles.

She has also dabbled in modeling on the side, appearing in advertisements for Heineken, Motorola, and Nike, among other brands.

Pink, Paulina Rubio, and La Ley (2001–2005)

During Pink’s promotional tour in 2001, she was recruited by the singer and appeared with her on shows such as Saturday Night Live, Total Request Live, the Billboard Music Awards, The Tonight Show, and Top of the Pops. Pink’s music video for “Don’t Let Me Get Me” was released in 2002, and she appeared with her onDick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve to herald in the new year. In 2002, she accompanied Paulina Rubio’s band on tour with Enrique Iglesias, who was also on the road at the time. Rubio and she also performed together at the 1st annualLos Premios MTV Latinoamerica (formerly known as the MTV Video Music Awards Latinoamerica), when she and Rubio sang a rendition of theKISSsong, ” I Was Made For Loving You.” McGill spent three years on the road with the Chilean rock band La Ley (La Ley).

Beyoncé and Suga Mamas (2006–2014)

She chose to give up traveling after being exhausted by the physical demands of the job. She now plans to live a calm life in the country. In 2006, pop recording artist Beyoncé was on the lookout for an all-female band to help her promote female empowerment. McGill’s father, who worked as a barber at the time and had been cutting McGill’s hair for years, was contacted by a member of Beyonce’s crew. He contacted her to persuade her to attend to the audition and she accepted his invitation. When Beyoncé issued a worldwide press release for auditions, the team member learned about McGill via her father and suggested her to the rest of the team.

  • McGill was hired as lead guitarist for Beyoncé’s 10-piece, all-female band, the Suga Mamas, in 2006 after receiving a call back following his first audition.
  • Since 2007, she has traveled the world with Beyoncé’s band, performing on four of the singer’s tours, including the Beyoncé Experience (2007), the I Am Tour(2009), the Mrs.
  • As a guest performer, she appeared in three Beyonce concerts: I Am.Yours Live at the Wynn Las Vegas (2009), Live At Roseland Ballroom (2011), and Beyonce Live in Atlantic City (2013).
  • While supporting Beyonce, she appeared on a number of award shows, television shows, and variety programs such as Good Morning America, the Today show, the Grammys, The American Music Awards, The Grammys – International, The World Music Awards, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the BET Awards.
  • During the Beyonce era, McGill’s solo performances have been some of her most memorable.
  • It is well-known that McGill’s Freakum outfit solo is in the Randy Rhoads style.
  • The year before, at the Super Bowl halftime concert, Bibi played a “pyrotechnic guitar solo,” in which pyrotechnics erupted from her Randy Rhoads signatureJackson guitar, which was later confiscated.
  • Many people, including Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone Magazine, applauded the performance, describing it as “a ready-made obligatory-Slash cameo guitar solo.” In addition to the Beyoncé concert, the Super Bowl brought McGill even more mainstream recognition as a result of the performance.

McGill’s solo garnered a great deal of excellent feedback from the public on social media as well as music critics. During Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter Show World Tour the same year, McGill performed her pyrotechnic solo once more.

Style, influences and instruments

McGill is most recognized for her aggressive, funky, and soulful rock style of guitar playing, which has been likened to that ofJimi Hendrix and Randy Rhoads on several occasions.

When she first started listening to rock music, she was a fan of Led Zeppelin, Heart, The Eagles, Black Sabbath, and Iron Maiden.

Yoga, wellness, music and business ventures (2015–present)

After McGill’s final tour with Beyoncé, the On The Run Tour in 2014, her contract with the singer expired, and she made the decision to officially stop her relationship with Beyoncé in order to devote her time and energy to other endeavors that she finds meaningful. Yoga instruction is one of those loves for me. Yoga was found by McGill in 1996. McGill revealed in an interview with Curlynikki that she has always been drawn to a holistic lifestyle and has done so since she was a child. She has always expressed an interest in living a more natural lifestyle and eating healthier foods than she did as a child.

8 Minutes to Read It is not about how much you know, but rather about putting your heart out. Bibliography: Bibi McGill To send a tweet, simply click here. Sitting on the lovely, green grass beneath a big oak tree, the warmth and fervor flowing fromBibi McGillis both motivating and contagious as she speaks to us. Bibi is one of those multi-faceted female geniuses that can be many things to many people at the same time. Most notably known as Beyonce’s lead guitarist and music director from 2006 to 2014 (and for good reason: no one can forget her incredible solo from Beyonce’s spectacular Super Bowl Halftime performance), this avid yogi is praised for the calm serenity of her presence, the luminescent spiritual influence she has, and her deep-rooted connection to the earth.

She traveled to Hong Kong to participate in The Garden Gathering, a retreat that celebrates the feminine spirit in nature, and she led traditional tea ceremonies wherever she went.

You are a famous rock guitarist and a renowned yoga instructor. How did you balance the two energies?

It is always perceived differently by others, but for me it is the same; it is only myself, all the way through. So whether I’m on tour with Beyonce, teaching yoga, or working as a DJ, it’s all about me, and I have to find a way to maintain a sense of balance. I’m simply doing what I enjoy doing. I’m going to offer my all to the audience and to my soul, and then I’m going to step back and let this energy to flow through me and touch whoever needs it.

How do you stay centered?

It is always perceived differently by others, but for me it is the same; it is only me throughout the entire process. It’s all me, whether I’m on tour with Beyonce, teaching yoga, or performing as a DJ, and I have to find a way to maintain a sense of balance. Everything I do is for personal satisfaction. Getting out of the way and allowing this energy to go through me will allow me to touch whoever is in need. I will offer my all to the audience and to my soul.

What are things that make you feel good?

Things to do that are nutritious for your intellect, your physical body, your emotions, and your energy body should be prioritized. ‘What do you eat?’ is what this implies. ‘Can I ask what you’re eating?’ Items that will boost your vibrations should be chosen above those that will be poisonous and cause headaches, stomachaches, and make you feel sluggish, for example; In terms of activities, I prefer to maintain a very constant yoga practice, which I make a priority in my life. I pick and choose the buddies and acquaintances I get out with – just like this!

Nonetheless, I get to be in nature right now, surrounded by people who are making flowers, there are children running around, and we’re getting ready to prepare for something that is positive, as opposed to being somewhere else in the world with a group of people who are all very nice, but with whom you will not be having conversations about holistic and healthy things because that is not where they are.

So I made the decision to be in a position where I feel good when I get up in the morning and feel good about my work when I leave the house to perform my work. Increase the amount of this and decrease the amount of that.

Did you have any influences that led you on this holistic path?

I didn’t do it. I grew up with musical inspirations, but I didn’t have any holistic role models to look up to. It was just something that I was drawn to. My family consumed a large number of home-cooked meals. I was drawn to gardening and the act of planting things, as well as to eating healthfully. When I was ten or eleven years old, the very first vegetarian restaurant in my hometown of Denver, Colorado, opened its doors. When I heard about it, I immediately informed my mother, ‘Let’s go!’ The whole experience made me really delighted!

And then you had an influence on other people?

Absolutely! When they contacted to ask whether I wanted to go back on tour, I said yes, and the next question was, ‘Will you assist us? We’ve seen that when everyone is stressed out, you’re calm.’ I answered yes, and the next question was, ‘Will you help us?’ That just blew me away! The following year and a half, I was content because they were genuinely listening to me and were interested in what I had to say and what I was doing, and we were finally working together as a team for the first time in our history.

I had arrived at my destination and was eager to try something new.

Do you still play guitar?

I do enjoy myself. I haven’t given up on the guitar or music in general. When it comes down to it, whether it’s more essential for me to meditate, juice, seek for really amazing tunes to spin, or play guitar, the guitar is going to be the last thing on my priority list. I’m in the process of learning new instruments. I enjoy sitting on the floor and playing hand drums, as well as sitting on the floor and playing the Native American flute (if I get the opportunity). I’m not in the mood to connect to my Apple Fire at the moment.

However, I continue to play guitar and am always learning new things.

How long have you been doing tea ceremonies?

I’ve been a tea enthusiast for a long time, but I’ve only been serving tea for about three years. I’ve been studying for many years and have been on a tea path for more than twenty-one years, and I was completely unaware of it until recently. It’s something that’s been in my life for a long time and I didn’t even realize it; I just went along with it, and then I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ All of these linkages have just brought me down this route to this point.’ It’s incredible to be able to look back and see that.

How did you find your tea teacher?

For a long time, I like drinking tea, but it has only been around three years since I began serving tea. Despite the fact that I’ve been studying for many years, I’ve been on a tea road for more than 21 years without even realizing it! This has been going on in my life for a while and I didn’t realize it; I just went along with it and suddenly I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ This is where I ended up because of all of these links. Seeing that in retrospect is truly wonderful.

Is there anything else you want to do?

A few of the things I’m doing are: I’m focusing more on sound healing, working with guitar and different instruments, singing, and looping. Because it is so extensive, it will take a long time for me to truly incorporate it into my life. However, it is something I am working on and would want to do.

Otherwise, I hope to retire and live on a farm with a variety of animals after I retire from my current job. Visiting the tea estates in the Yunan Province is something I’d really like to undertake in the future. Green Queen provided the images used in this post.

Bibi McGill: “Every night before I went on stage with Beyoncé, I meditated until it was just me and the guitar“

A few of the things I’m doing are: I’m focusing more on sound healing, working with guitar and other instruments, singing, and looping. Because it is so extensive, it will take a long time for me to fully incorporate it into my life. Nevertheless, that is something I am attempting to do. Otherwise, I hope to retire and live on a farm with a variety of animals after I retire from my teaching position. Visiting the tea fields in Yunan Province is something I’d really like to do.

How Guitarist/Yogi Bibi McGill Sets the Stage

Female lead guitarists that are truly badass are exceedingly hard to come by. There are even fewer of them: individuals who have given Prince’s Super Bowl pyrotechnics a run for their purple-paisley-adorned splendor. Exactly that was done by Ms. Bibi McGill at Beyonce’s 2013 Big Game performance, where she took center stage with the Queen of Pop. BB toured the world as Queen B’s lead guitarist and musical director, and he finally found himself working two jobs at the same time. In fact, McGill is also a Yogi, and he became the natural medicine and healing guru for Ms.

Then she took to the stage and ripped the place apart.

HANAH founder Joel Einhorn and McGill chat about her roots—both musical and what she puts in her tea.

Female lead guitarists that are truly badass are in little supply. It is even more rare to come across folks who have given Prince’s Super Bowl pyrotechnics a run for their money. In 2013, Ms. Bibi McGill did just that at Beyonce’s Big Game performance, when she shared the stage with Bey. BB traversed the world as Queen B’s lead guitarist and musical director, and he finally found himself performing double duty as both of these positions. In fact, McGill is also a Yogi, and he became the natural medicine and healing guru for Ms.

Her performance on stage was then a disaster.

Yogi Bibi McGill was interviewed for this article. When guitarist Bibi McGill stood toe-to-toe with Beyonce and shredded a burning Jackson Randy Rhoads guitar in all her amazing splendor, a spectacular spray of sparks erupted from the stage. There were many unforgettable moments during this year’s Super Bowl half-time spectacle, but none quite like that. McGill told EBONY.com in a recent phone conversation that the performance was “very thrilling,” but that she was more concerned with her objective to spread good energy, love, and light via her efforts rather than the performance itself.

She discusses her struggles leading up to her big break, how she almost passed up the “I AM” auditions, and how she manages numerous hobbies at the same time.” Patrice Peck is a writer and actress. You may find the interviewHERE. Thank you for passing along this information!
