Yoga Fitness: Take Me Higher Playlist


For a high energy yoga flow or power yoga practice, this playlist gets the blood flowing and the endorphins soaring. I first pulled it together as a playlist for my running called “Runner’s High.” I use it in a group class I teach that is about half bodyweight strength training and half yoga poses. Fun to dance to, as well. Enjoy!

Strength and wellness coach. Yoga teacher. Belly dance fitness instructor. Ballroom dancer. The LUVMVMT umbrella covers most of my recent writing. I have also shared my personal dance and yoga journeys on the following blogs: "Diary of a Mad Dancer" is my journey to the competition floor of glamorous dancesport. Yes, it's a tale that probably should have begun with dance-mad parents urging on their darling lass of three, in Europe. Instead: Virginia, suburbia, mid-life. It's a dream come true. Sometimes with all the logic and consistency of a slumbering mind. "Dance of Life Yoga" shares the beauty, peace and awareness that yoga can bring into your life. It transformed mine in ways I never anticipated.
