One of my favorite parts of Tuesday’s class was the playlist. I’ve taken so many yoga classes and have listened a variety of music that accompanies classes, I was ready to have a class with my own playlist!
Since I started teacher training I’ve been stock piling music for when I’d get to teach my own classes. Michael is completely in to music and is always listening to Rhapsody throughout the day. For months he’s been coming home and sharing new music with me. It’s been really fun to diversify my music a little and find some great new-to-me bands. I’m currently loving The Art of Noise, MC Yogi and Muse.
Tuesday morning as I was practicing my flow one final time I realized that the music on my playlist was set up to remind me of moments in life and this journey that I knew would make me feel confident and calm my nerves. Oh, the power of music. The first song, Love by The Art of Noise was given to me by Michael. I loved that I opened the class with that, it made me feel like he was right there with me. Big City Life by Mattafix reminded me of Teacher Training and a moment my friend Christine and I shared…smiling at each other as we struggled through a challenging class during our 9 day intensive. Home by Philip Phillips was the song I listened to the day I accepted my new job at LLS. I’ll never forget smiling ear to ear that day in the car and knew the song would be the perfect reminder of how far I’ve come.
The playlist has a great beat, picks up in the middle when you are really moving and flowing and then slows down at the end again. I personally love this playlist.
