Breathe Deep (a yoga playlist)


My kids just came in from outside.  It’s late afternoon, the sun is still shining, and the sky is blue.  I hugged my youngest and took a deep breath.  My nose and brain and heart were flooded with peace, hope, and Spring as I smelled this 7 year old head.  It’s all there in that baby fresh scent that still lives deep in the follicles of my children’s heads.  Oh what a blessing!  It made me come in, sit down, and put together this playlist for tomorrow’s classes.  Clear, light music with acoustic instruments bring me instantly to long afternoons spent on a patio, soaking in the sun and all the gifts The Universe has given me.  Breathe Deep – yoga is in the air!

    • Thanks! I’m excited to use it today – I’ll let you know how it goes. I love FA’s version of Across the Universe. Her voice just sorta lends a haunting quality to it. Happy listening!
