Yoga is like music; the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.
— B.K.S. Iyengar

My life has been one big playlist

My taste in music is constantly being challenged, due to the many hats I wear. 

One minute I'm teaching ballroom/latin, and the next minute I'm teaching meditation.

Honestly, music is a must in class, although I do believe in finding moments of complete silence in yoga AND dance.

But when I build a playlist, I set an intention. "What does this song make me feel?"

 

Music is a guide for my movement in yoga/dance/the grocery store. It should always speak with purpose. I need the goosebumps factor always. When I teach yoga my intent is to take everyone on a journey - a constant flow allowing the body, breath & music to move as one. It helps me get out of my head & be present with all that's in front of me. 

Sometimes it's the little things. When "Gravity" by John Mayer comes on in yoga, while you're in the middle of Savasana, letting gravity (literally) realign & heal your body. When a student cracks a smile because it relates to something going on in their life or brings up old memories that have been stored away.

Call me obsessed, but music is truly a magical thing & it's where I find my voice. 

Release, start observing, and let the music take you away.

 

So here we go! I'm excited to share with everyone my current personal playlists.

These playlists are ever-changing. I've also included links for you Spotify users, where you can open it up and follow it as I add new music!

Shout out to those who waited - thanks for your patience! :)
