Yoga Playlist: Lost in Space

This playlist was inspired by the element of “space” and how it relates to the way we inhabit our bodies and minds.

Often many of us are caught in a web of doubting, negative thoughts about our bodies and minds. The aligned vinyasa class I taught supported by this playlist encouraged students to find space in their upper chest and lower back through the breath. I chose many dub reggae and down tempo grooves because of the sheer amount of empty space that exists in this type of music. Un-played and “inferred” notes resonate as loudly as any drum beat or melody. Some of these songs have been used in previous playlists, but hey, they are good. I hope you like it.
