Yoga Playlists for Resident Yogis

1 Comment
Hi Friends!

I’m happy to mark our 80th day of Resident Yogis to offer daily playlists for practice. I plan to post a playlist here each night for the following morning’s practice, through our 100th day. Feel free to play along for our classes, or enjoy as you soften, breathe and move through your day.

Practices here

In our Strala Training Programs and workshops we always carve some time to talk about music for yoga class. It’s a pin drop moment where we all lean in to see what’s possible, and what everyone else thinks and feels about what’s appropriate, useful and uplifting to support the practice.

Music is powerful, personal and has the potential to shift, change and move us. When the question of what is yoga music comes up it brings up a deeper, more centered conversation. What is yoga to you? Why do you practice and what do you use your practice for? We can give ourselves permission to allow the power of music to support our goals.

Yoga, for most of us is a tool to connect to ourselves, connect to the world, feel better, point ourselves toward sustainable wellbeing, and to enjoy a navigation system that helps us feel better. We all have our unique variation of why we practice and it centers on feeling better. When we feel better, we do better.

In the spirit of feeling better, music for yoga has the potential to support, be part of the story, a character in the environment, and a piercing agent of soul connection.

So, it’s up to you. What is yoga for you? What is yoga music for you?

These playlists are customized for how we practice each day. Our theme, our mood, and where we collectively align ourselves, toward unity, support and progress.

I hope this becomes another way of continuing the conversation of connection, support and love for each other. Feel free to share with your friends, send me suggestions, open my eyes and my heart, and lean on me.

    The Playlist is really cool 🙂

Finding the right distance. It’s a practice we can feel out and adjust in every moment. Cool thing is when you create a good relationship with yourself, finding the right relationship with others becomes a joy.From @stralayoga training in Berlin a couple years back. We are hoping to be there with a nice group next summer celebrating finding the right relationship.#stralayoga #shiatsu #yogateachertraining #taichi
When we soften, much more becomes possible. #stralayoga #taichi #shiatsu
It’s so easy to stick to habits that are familiar, even when they are destructive. We all have our reasons, our armor and our guard up to protect ourselves against whatever specific formula triggers us. We are afraid if we are more gentle with ourselves, we won’t be braced to defend ourselves, but the opposite is true. Moving like you love yourself in yoga and life is a choice to create a new, lasting habit, a way of being truly you.Tai Chi, nature, science, and the wisdom of your Great Grandmother, remind us when you go to war with yourself, you lose. When you move with whole self harmony towards progress, treating every bad habit you find along the way as a gold mind opportunity to move toward balance, you feel better, your body works better and you have access to more of yourself. You have a chance to do some good.I move like I love myself. It can start with an idea, a mantra, a practice, a way of being. If you choose to let it make a home in you, you will have gone to peace with yourself. Anything is possible.Pic by @jes.lock & @arslanstype @sundanceresort for Rest & Renew Training & Retreat#connection #selflove #wellbeing #stralayoga #taichi
