If you are like me you are always in search of your next favorite song for yoga class! When I build a yoga playlist it’s a sparkling collection of songs that I handpicked from a sea of less worthy songs. Each one individualy is a gleaming jewel of sorts.

Of course, one woman’s musical treasure is another persons noise pollution. Listen and see what you think of my yoga music playlist here on Spotify.
