Here’s a playlist that’s intended for an hour and a half yoga class. I feel like all of these tracks are interesting and fairly accessible. I usually hate it when yoga teachers play music because the music they play often takes away from whatever I’m feeling inside. This past winter, I went to a yoga class at one studio and the teacher went as far as playing modern country in her class: it made me want to puke. This mix is meant to help people feel their now feeling fully and for their minds to explore. 

If you’re not into yoga, then use this mix to put on after you get home from work and sit on the couch with a sixer of Bud Light Lime and relax.
