An international yoga instructor writes a healthy living blog with an emphasis on yoga.

Currently listening to...

It's been a while since I've done a playlist post for yoga practice (or it's great background music for studying, working, whatever). Some people prefer silence in class, and I get it- yoga was started thousands of years ago to the soundtrack of the breath so using music is obviously quite different from yoga's roots. I appreciate both types of classes, but prefer teaching and practicing to music. I am passionate about music- about good beats and sweet melodies, and I think a well thought out playlist can enhance the class. Just my humble opinion.  This particular playlist is great for a power class. Hope you enjoy.
