On Rotation: September Yoga Playlist

Sep 8th, 2015 oddfam Uncategorized

Music has always been a huge part of my life. As a child I could be found wandering around the playground singing The Little Mermaid. In elementary school I played piano and clarinet in the school band. In middle school I sang in choir and musicals. In high school I took voice lessons and taught myself guitar. As an "adult" I've performed in bands(we played our first show at one down dog!) and go to see other bands play as often as I can. And if I'm being completely honest, I can still be found singing The Little Mermaid from time to time.

When I was in teacher training, I couldn't wait to learn about structuring a sequence and creating yoga playlists. Needless to say, music is a huge part of the experience on the mat. That's why I take time to create yoga playlists that have a life to them. I like to being practice with a few moments of silence, allowing time to check in, connect with the breath and set an intention. The first few songs are usually pretty mellow, without lyrics, to set a chill tone which is perfect for warming up and starting to loosen up the body. Then the songs pick up a little bit and help to provide energy as we flow. Towards the end of class, the songs start to mellow out again and provide a comforting type of atmosphere that allows for chilling out and melting into a relaxing Savasana. Check out what I have on rotation in my flow classes this week:

I think it's safe to say that everyone here at One Down Dog loves music, too. Check out some of the other music we've shared. Want to suggest some awesome tunes? Feel free to share them with us here in the comments, on twitter, facebook or email.
