Over the last few weeks class members have asked me about the music I use for class.
- Pandora:(an online music app with which you are able to design your own music channels.) "Spiritual Waterfalls (mood mix) Radio" plays quiet, relaxing music of instrumental melodies, sometimes including waterfalls or other outdoor sounds. I like to put it on during my practice.
- Flute Music: Native American flute music is one of my favorites for yoga. Tomas Walker is my favorite musician. "Spirit Dreams" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSkdOKuEqtU. Amazon carries the CD.
- "Wellness for Woman" Meditation or Relaxation: 2 tapes my classes love. Produced by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation www.dbcf.org. Amazon carries these CDs and more of the series.
- George Winston "December" - is a CD of piano solos.
- Hymns: I have a few CDs of instrumentals of popular hymns. "September Psalms" is one of my favorites. It has outdoor sounds behind the music. Nice and relaxing.
- Yoga Music: There is music for yoga with lyrics in Sanskrit. There also is some that is just instrumental.

A nice saying for Valentines:
"The most important thing in life is to
learn how to give out love and
let it come in."
During yoga practice we often practice Extended Child's Pose. It is a great pose for rest and breath during yoga practice. Child's pose is also good for stretching our backs.
Extended child's pose adds arms extended out in front. This creates a long arms stretch and opens the space under our shoulders, our armpits.
Add some deep breath to your child's pose and see how much your back expands with your breath.

I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
