Late Summer Playlist July 23, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jenny @ 6:52 am

I thought about posting this before, and then when the wonderful @cupcakemafia did it, I decided to go on ahead and follow her lead.

I love good music for yoga practice and when I teach I try to make playlists that inspire grace, movement and flow. This is by far my best play list yet (in my opinion) and I’ve even had students tell me so! Alors, I decided to share it with you all.

Volià my late summer yoga class playlist:

1. Om Namah Shivayah (ft. Bhagavan Das) by MC Yogi

2. Om by The Moody Blues

3. How Deep is Your Love by The Bird and the Bee

4. She Moves in Her Own Way by The Kooks

5. Love is My Religion by Ziggy Marley

6. For the Widows in Paradise by Sufjan Stevens

7. Your Hand in Mine by Explosions in the Sky

8. People Should Smile More by Newton Faulkner *

9. True Love Leaves No Traces by Leonard Cohen

10. Live is Wonderful by Jason Mraz

11. Back to Where I Was by Eric Hutchinson

12. One Step Closer to You by Michael Franti & Spearhead

13. Remember Me as a Time of Day by Explosions in the Sky

14. Ha-tha (Sun Meets Moon- Sixth Chakra or Third-Eye) by Chinmaya Dunster

15. Breathing-Prana (Third Chakra or Hara) by Chinmaya Dunster

The last two songs come from an album called Yoga on Sacred Ground and each song plays to/ is meant to awaken a particular chakra, which is why I like to play them at the end of class for deep relaxation and Pranayama (respectively).

I’m working on a new playlist right now so I can incorporate a great artist I met at a house concert last night named Jonathan Stark. He’s ridiculously talented, has a beautiful voice and lyrics to match. It will probably also include a tune or two from my good friend Eric (and his band The Apprentice)**, just to give you a little sneak peek.

*Class favorite

**The Apprentice (band name came about BEFORE Donald Trump’s stupid show…) can be found/purchased on iTunes and highly encourage you to take a listen. They are a wonderfully inspiring, thoughtful group of musicians and I can’t say enough about how much I enjoy their music. Songs that they are best known for include: Be My Home, We Were Just Eighteen and my personal faves also include Disease and Riverside.
