Happy TunesDay friends and yoga lovers!
As promised (with a small and unexpected delay before publishing), welcome to my weekly music-inspired blog post!
This past week’s most popular playlist is a personal favourite. As many of my students know, I have always used a lot of non-yoga music for my classes. I teach with music that I am listening to currently because I find it more authentic than making playlists that don’t truly move me in the moment. I love to practice to what makes me feel amazing and, therefore, love leading practices that incorporate music that moves my students as well as helps encourage them to stay present.
Of late, I have been listening to a lot of music that leans more to the side of instrumental with less lyrics as well as some more “traditional” yoga music. It’s been warming my heart, moving my soul and helping me tap into a level of creativity / fluidity on my mat that I didn’t know was there. This has been my favourite playlist to flow to – connecting with my breath and letting my body ride the wave of the beats.
