Here are all the playlists I used in my vinyasa yoga classes during the month of May. Notable artists include James Blake, Jaymes Young, Active Child, Sam Smith, Elliot Moss, Still Parade, and Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

A few of my favorite songs to teach sun salutations to this month were “Perfect Form” by Cyril Hahn & Shy Girls, “Beginnings” by Hayden James, and “Home By Now” by Bombay Bicycle Club.

As always, the remixes can be found on my remix playlists on Spotify.

March Playlists

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 9.31.12 AM

I switched up my playlists a little more than usual in the month of March. It seemed fitting, as the weather was so unpredictable and change was definitely in the air as we eagerly anticipated the arrival of spring in Boston after this especially brutal winter. The first playlist is straight up indie rock then I shifted to a little more electro stuff, following with another Sufjan Stevens tribute (including some of his new work with Sisyphus), and a couple of indie folk-y/indie poppy playlists sparked by my rediscovery of Ace Enders of The Early November’s solo project, “I Can Make A Mess.”

I also included my hip hop playlists. One week’s theme was “Emo Rappers” (think Cudi, Lupe Fiasco, etc.) and another’s was “Ellie Goulding, Rapped Up” (hip hop mashups and collaborations featuring Ellie and also remixes of her songs)

February Playlists


Here are the playlists I used in all my regular vinyasa classes in February. The playlist called “workshop” from 2/8-2/14 was a collection of some of my all time favorite songs to teach to. I used it in an educational workshop about how to effectively create classes with mindful sequencing and music. I don’t often theme my playlists, but I had a little fun with it this month. After coming across a few great Sufjan Stevens remixes, I made a “Sufjan-a-thon” playlist that worked perfectly for class. He’s one of my all time favorite artists and great for teaching to. Another themed playlist, “Emo Yoga,” (well, about as emo as you can get without screamy vocals or super loud guitars) was a throwback playlist to my high school days to celebrate one of my favorite students and friends who is (sadly) moving to the West Coast this month…

I also teach to hip hop (which is often a mix of hip hop, mashups, remixes and electropop). There are two themed hip hop playlists- a “Kid Cudi-thon” and “slow jamz.” And this month I debuted an acoustic Friday night flow. I’ve included those playlists at the bottom.
